    Winter Issues

    Do you guys have any cold weather issues? My windows WILL NOT roll down until the car is warmed up. When warmed up they work just fine.

    The headlight motors do the same.. cept Im about to change them in a few minutes...

    Volts are higher as well..(cold battery is my guess)

    Common issues ?

    Or do I need to start the replacing game?

    Mine will go down, but not up...I need to swipe my badge at a vehicle gate to leave, so I usually park, get out, swipe my badge, and get back into my car.

    Opposite of the windows, they'll go up, but won't come down till they've warmed up a little in my garage.

    Most likely...I try not to drive mine when i gets cold out, but with the Ram Air sucking in that lovely below freezing air, sometimes I can't resist when it's a clear day out.

    HAHAHA i have a badge i have to swipe at work as well. I open my door like 1/2 inch and snake my arm through. Kinda sucks. Manual windows sound nice.. tho expensive and modding required

    Yes!, if you replace your flexplate, it will cure all your problems, I happen to have one for sale, remember?
