96 vert gt power everything. My problem is the same one which has been asked at all pony forums I am a participant in.

I have seen no analogous problem, so I recorded it malfunctioning, then starting to work, then stop – start – ablahblah.

I have replaced the switch, and it still malfunctions. This problem has plagued me since owning this car. I have heard the wiring gets old and contributes all the time, and I have a spare door, but has anyone replaced the wiring, or opened a panel or two and found out what is wrong.

If you look, a few seconds in you can see a blue piece of electrician tape – that is the only wire I just finished f’n with. It was already broken. If I stick my most ulnar and usually smallest finger of the human hand in the open (broken) rubber grommet thingy, I feel some sharp ends of other wires – I know it’s not supposed to be like that, but I need an idea or two. I have thought of pulling the card and take the harness from the other door, but I can’t find anything on the procedures.

I hope I explained it well. Thanks as always…

I have spent a half hour trying to get this to a shareable format... f'it!

Here's the youtube:

I'm going to bet your issue is where the wire(s) come through the door. I've seen this happen before. A short break in a power or other connecting wire will get pinched/broken and just make contact sometimes. I had one that drove the owner nuts until I found the broken wire. Yes, it's a PITA to fix, but doable. You'll need to open the kick panel and find the connector to the door and then pull the harness out from the door post end and door. You need to remove the door panel as well. If you're lucky, once you find the damaged wire(s) you have the choice of fixing them or putting in new wires. Not hard, just tedious.
