    Default Window switches

    My windows switches on my car don't work very well. The car has been stood for a while so I am assuming its dust an lack of use that has caused the dicky switches?

    Theres a how to on dismantling the switches, is that what I am going to need to do to sort this issue out?

    Cheers

    Or you could try holding the unlock button to see if the open correctly!
    Then if it is your switch follow the how to the clean all the contacts.

    it does sound like a bad connection then, see if you can use a mate's switch for a minute, see if that is any better.
