    Question Leccy window fault

    When i click on the window to shut automatically if i turn the steering wheel right then left or the other way round the window stops winding up and starts to wind down. Not a very serious problem but annoying none the less. Anyone else have this problem and how do you fix it?

    i personally havnt had this problem before but it sounds like an electrical drain somewhere.

    Your windows will auto go down when the circuit hits resistance. Eg when you leave your hand in the window it will go back down.

    Sounds like your power steering may be using all your paower and the windows think its a resistance.

    makes sence in my head anyway.

    My amp does the same thing, if i turn my wheel when stantionary it will cut the amp cus not enough power.

    It's probably just the window sensing resistance and going down again, try lubricating the channels with silicon spray

    If there wasn't enough power because of the power steering the window would just stop!
