There should be a relay for the windows in the fuse box...there is on the "late" 944s...

Remove the switches and clean the contact areas and I will bet they work.

This a common issue and most often solved by cleaning the gunk out.

Check to see if the plug separated from the window switches . If either side is out the windows wont work.

If one is not connected the other will work but the mirror switch won't. At least this is how mine is. My passenger side is not connected but the drivers side works fine but the mirror switch must be in line with the passenger switch.

Power window relay is under the dash right above the gas pedal.

Check this thread: Pelican oldy-924 newbie - Elec Window?

Thread is still on the opening page. Pays to keep tabs on what is being posted.

That did it.....found the relay right by the accelerator tucked under the dash.....the relay wasn't bad....one of the wires had worked it's way out of the connector.... put it back it and they work.....so how came the Porsche manual never mentions that relay..??????

Knowing where the window relay is located is one of the secret hand shakes.

Define "cycle the lights".
