About Door Window Relays

Most cars are now fitted with electric windows rather than those that are operated manually. The way in which the electric windows above the doors of a vehicle are opened and closed when the electric window switch is pressed is through a Skodadoor window relay.

A Skodadoor window relay works through an electromagnet that is present in the relay component. Electricity from the vehicle’s battery is introduced to this magnet with the result that a magnetic field is created. This magnetic field, which will exist for as long as the electromagnetic is charged, has the effect of pushing a switch into position which causes the window to move up and down.

In certain cases, the Skodadoor window relay will only operate when the vehicle’s ignition is switched on, although there are some models of Skodadoor window relay, commonly known as power window relays, where the connection between the battery and the relay is maintained for a short period of time even when the ignition keys have been removed.

If an individual door window fails to open it may indicate that the Skodadoor window relay is no longer operating and will need to be replaced immediately, especially if the window is stuck in the “open” position.

Skoda trivia

  • The 2018 Skoda Kodiaq RS is a seven-seater that set a new speed record in the car that has yet to be beaten (the car was driven by Top Gear presenter Sabine Schmitz).
  • The Skoda Octavia set a new World record for the farthest arrow fired and caught from a moving vehicle. The record stands at 188ft and 7.775 inches.
  • Skoda started off in Czechoslovakia, but they are now owned by a German company, while their cars are actually built in Europe.
  • The most expensive Skoda ever built was meant to be eaten, not driven! The £500,000 cake was a promotion for the Skoda Fabia, and the resulting advert was Skoda's most popular ever, winning several advertising awards. The cake weighed a tonne and a half and even had a replica engine that was 'oiled' with golden syrup.
  • One of the most popular Skoda models, the Scala, is a translation of the word 'ladder'.
