1988 Pontiac Fiero 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 85K miles
On my 1988 Fiero GT the power windows work intermittently. That is, I can roll them up and down, sometimes. It seems that when I first get in the car I can operate the windows. But, they run out of "juice" sometimes halfway up. When I first bought the car I rolled the windows up when I got on the freeway. They were slow, but with consistent speed compared to each other. I drove for about two hours and stopped for lunch. When I came out the interior was hot and I wanted to roll the windows down. NO LUCK! I drove home, trying the windows from time to time without success. I came back out the next morning and Voila! The windows worked! The next incident was a mechanic rollled the windows down while it was being smogged. I rolled up the Passenger side first and it started out fine then slowed to a stop half mast. I tried the drivers window with no lluck. Five minutes later I tried the drivers window again and no problem, successful operation of the Passenger side, too. What gives? Is this a heat related regulator problem? It seems as the motors are ok but that something between the switches is bad. But, I haven't a clue on this one. Is there a regulator? Where is it? What else can it be?
Sweating terribly in Fresno
