Customer Question
My 2001 Cabrio electric...

My 2001 Cabrio electric windows wont go up. They're all the way down and wont return. This happened once before but I can't remember what I did.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses?

Not yet. Before it wasn't a fuse.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cabrio yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just happened. Shut it off, restarted. Back windows went down but wont go up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all I got for now
