Default Power Windows 1987 Camry...need to slam door to operate.....help

My 1987 Camry power windows have a glitch.
Sometimes they refuse to operate up OR down.....I have to slam drivers side
door a few times till they will operate while car is running.
Is there a switch that is activated when car is running and door in closed
position OR, is the wiring in the rubber boot between door and car body damaged
or pinched and shifting slightly as I slam door. Any suggestions appreciated.

Marty

More then likely it is a broken wire in the boot between the door and body.
The wire is probably broken but it is still held together by the rubber
insulation and when you move the door it makes contact. The driver door
switch and each door window switch are connected in series, so if you lose a
connection between the two you lose a ground to the motor and it will not
work.
