passenger window

Model: 911 SC, Year:1983, Mileage:138000, Type of use:Street use only
The passenger window will go up & down from the passenger switch but only goes up from the driver's switch. I've checked that all wires are connected on the driver's switch but they may not be on the correct connection. Thanks for your help.

tach sticking

Model: 911s, Year:1976, Mileage:125k, Type of use:Street use only
I have a 76 911s with a 81 sc motor, the tach sticks. If you tap on the face it will drop back and start working again "sometimes". Is there a gear that needs grease?

1989 911 Carrera Electric windows don't work.

Model: 911, Year:1989, Mileage:80000, Type of use:Street use only
Both side windows stop operating intermittently. When one side doesn't work, the other side also doesn't work. All window switches are dead. Then without warning both windows are working again. Where do I begin my trouble shooting?

Do I need to replace my alternator?

battery tender

Model: 911, Year:1982, Mileage:200000, Type of use:Street use only
I recently read an article in the haggerty classic car news about how a battery on a classic car blew up because it ran out of water. I had thought this impossible because a battery tender cycles on and off as needed so therefore cannot overcharge.

Further to my recent question ragarding a mainainer, you mention in a previous question to use a punch to disable the trunk light during charging. Not sure what you mean. Could you explain furtherThanks again - Don

Due to weather in South Dakota, the car can't be driven frequently. Do you suggest using a trickle charger and if so, what kind or typeThanksDon

No spark, won't start

I've been told check the green coax sending wire from the distributor. My 83 has a brown wire from the distributor that goes into a wiring harness. Is this the one? how can I check continuity on this wire.
