    Default Poor response from lecy window switches

    I have started to noticed that there can be a bit of a delay when I press the button to raise and lower the drivers window (it’s not tight as it runs up and down fine). The wife has found that she can lower the passengers window but it can take up to 4 presses of the button to put it up (I can raise the passengers window fine from the drivers side controls).

    Tried the passengers side back window from the local button and the window did not move (went up and down fine from the drivers side controls). Opened the back door and pressed a few times and the window went up and down, but not with each press of the button.

    The rear switches don’t get used very much and the passenger’s side is used now and again (which may be the problem).

    Before I start taking off door panels to check/clean switches is this something that could have lost its programming and needs to be reset (I know the auto up/down sometime needs to be reprogrammed)

    does sound more like the door switches need their contacts cleaning... and thats a darn sight cheaper than buying new door switches...just swapped out one 'master switch' unit over xmas..£68 for it.... better to try and clean up the one's you've got with some switch cleaner 1st..

    Thanks Mark, I had a feeling that would be the case just wanted to check with a GURU before diving in.

    Many TAs (Happy New Year)

    P.S. I have seen a few of the master switch units on e-bay but I suspect new is the way to go as you will probably be getting someone elses problems or something that had a hard life already.

    See if it's any different with the door open, the rubber housing that the wires sit in to go from the B pillar to the inside of the door doesn't always stand up to clumsy ppl and the ultra thin wires snap inside, had it happen to an Omega.

    Hi VV, I assumed the switch on the door fed the motor motor direct - does it come out and go back into the door. The reason I ask is that the local switch was not working well but it would work from the drivers door buttons.

    Na it's not the switch that I mean, if you look in the door run just above the bottom hinge you should see a rubber tube, this houses all the wires for the windows and locking stuff, as ppl get in and out they kick it and although the rubber stays intact it can damage the wires inside.

    Exactly the same and it must be the switch (prob not wire) I hope. Can I prise the switch out? If so will try sum WD

    The wife goes back to work on the 4th which means I get 2 days to play with the car .

    I suspect the door panels will need to come off, but please jump in if they don't.

    I thought switch cleaner and WD were different, I've always used a switch cleaner that says it is on the tin (I've only used WD as a lubricant (no pun intended) and as a getting rid of moisture aid.

    If you get a chance to play before the 4th could you let me know how you get on vectrasri03 - best of luck

    i had the same problem before christmas, my drives window control had to be pressed a few times before it moved and the switch that controlled the doors locking and un-locking didnt work either, i priced the 'master switch' with VX and they wanted £67, but i seen one on ebay which i won for a bargain price of £8.01 everything works fine now
    All i did was use a very very small flat blade screwdriver and pushed the clip down on the top and bottom, enough for me to pop it out

    Going to try the easy option first then Veccy_c_gsi, result if you don't need to take the door panels off (I assumed they would need to be released from the inside) - unless you mean you took the door panel off and pushed the clip
