Seriously. My MR2 has power windows and locks, and the power windows work 75% of the time, but ONLY when the drivers door is open. Any ideas on fixing this? Very rarely will it not work when the door is open, but if you close the door hard and 'punch' the window switch area. and re-open the door it will work. lol .. . i know i know


but does anyone have any idea as to why only with the door open?!?!?!

My money is on a broken or nearly broken wire in the accordion that runs between the door and the kick panel. It's a fairly common problem on our cars. Water gets into the area and corrodes the wires. Moving them around, for instance when you open or close the door, can make or break the intermittent connection.

Another common problem is the contacts on the switches being dirty, but in your case that wouldn't explain the correlation to the door opening and closing, so I'm betting on the wires in the accordion.

Hope this helps,
