    Hi all,

    I have a '96 Outback Sport with electric windows. The windows have
    been acting very flaky. They will occasionally stop working (from
    both the master switch and the individual door switches). Sometimes
    I'll "roll" a window down and it won't go up, sometime I can't them to
    go down. After a while (hours usually) the windows start working
    again.

    I looked in the manual and I can't find a fuse for the windows,
    although I wouldn't be able to explain why they only intermittanly
    flake out with a bad fuse. It doesn't seem to be a function of the
    weather (happens on rainy or sunny or hot or cold days).

    Help!

    The contacts in the switch are corroded, possibly only the wiring
    contacts and not the switch itself. Since the other doors are wired
    through the master switch it may be any one of them. Try taking the
    panel off on the drivers side and cleaning the wire contacts. Best of
    luck and be prepared to put big bucks out for the Subi replacement!
    Once bought a Toaster at Walmart for less than I paid for a fuse at the
    Subi dealer.
