VW beetle power windows

Asked by Mar 17, 2016 at 08:17 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 beetle. My driver side power
window switch will not lower either of the
two windows. The passenger side power
window switch will lower and raise the
passenger side window.

So you either have a bad master switch or the wiring is broke in the door, possibly in the tunnel between the door and the body.

Here is a strange twist. If i put the key in the driver door lock and turn it I can roll down the window using the switch. If I turn it the other way I can raise it using the switch. Any ideas?

A shop owner from where I lived some years back keeps in touch with me when he has a real stumper on his hands, he has been working on a VW Beetle that is doing wierd things like yours with the window on the drivers side, he traced it down to a control module somewhere on the drivers side, I didn't ask him where he found it, as there are no VW dealers even close out there he found one in a wrecking yard and replaced it and the door Windows now operate properly, that maybe what has happened to yours. That one was an 02 Beetle. That's all I got.
