This has been an ongoing problem and has me stumped.
My lesbre stalls occasionally when it does it will turn over but not start but the power windows will not work when it will not start??????? Has happened when cold and when warm.
Have had it in the shop 3 times replaced battery and cables one time. Did it again replaced cam shaft positioning sensor. Did it again. Have had the fuel pump replaced recently also.

  • Thank you so much
    I tapped the buss under the carpet by the driver door and it started
    I removed the tape and cleaned with electrical cleaner and hopefully it goes away.
    There was moisture under the carpet. Should i put some die electric grease on it?

    Yes on dielectric grease.

    You made my day coming back to post to let me know that seems to be your problem.

    I don't know the climate the car is in but I'd get rid of that moisture.


    Can you leave the carpet up and that area open to dry the carpet for a few days?
    If the car is garaged, leave the windows down some for air to move through too.
    Or if outdoors can you leave windows down an inch to encourage
    air to move through the car to dry that carpet.

    Do you have a sunroof that might be wetting the carpet from the drain that goes down the
    A-pillar and through the floor that sometimes comes undone?

    Or has anyone ever worked inside the driver door panel where they might now have
    sealed the inner plastic layer that directs the water back outside via the drain holes
    at the bottom? The plastic has a tarry black sticky stuff in a pattern that keeps water
    getting past the window seals from getting to the inside.

    If you think you might have a leak with water coming through the door, spray the
    bottom of the door that's metal with a powdery deoderant or athletes foot powder, etc.
    Then watch for water drops or tracks through the powder.

    I can probably find a link to the whole door resealing steps if you think
    you need that.

    Found that failure a number of times. I would eliminate the comb and hardwire the grounds when repairing this issue.
