Drivers Window problem.

Maybe someone has seen this before. When you open the door the window goes down just a small distance to clear the convertible top. Goes back up after you close the door. When driving the window will intermittently do this. Very quickly. And the interior light will come on. Doesnt do it regularly. Which component is likely causing the problem?

The problem is the micro switch in the door striker. Replacing it will fix the problem.

Whats the year and model and I can find the part number for you?
