First place I'd look, other than the obvious connector to the motor: look inside the rubber boot which houses the wire between the door jamb and the door itself. The one thats exposed when you open the door. Sometimes, with 20 years of opening and closing the door, a wire can become brittle, crack, and begin to fray. I've seen that a lot in trunk light wires and hideaway headlights in older Hondas. Its worth a look. Other than that maybe jump a ground wire to a bare metal spot on the door to see if there's a bad ground somewhere. Good Luck.

Subject: Customer locked out of the trunk
Customer's exact description:i need to get into trunk key is inside how can i remove back seats from 89 bmw
Discussion: The customer suggests a that removing the rear seat might be the solution.
Your trunk compartment has cross-bars for the purpose of making it difficult for a thief who breaks a window and then gains entry to your trunk where the out-of-sight valuables can be found. Glass windows serve the purpose of preventing honest people from gaining entry.
The simplest solution is a $5 tool that will let you make an impression of the interior of the lock. You take this impression to your local hardware store or WalMart and purchase a replacement key for $1.50. The tool is called a 'Kwikset Key Gauge Decoder Rekey Removal Locksmith Tool'. You can find one online or at a hardware store.
Hello! The Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS) is the likely culprit...it is mounted on the throttle body..A round black plastic device with two mounting holes on either side... cost is around $45 It has a three wire connector. The wire colors are; Gray, Black, and Dark Blue. It can be tested, if you have some experience with a voltmeter..straighten out two paper clips...Push one into the rear of the connector on the Black wire...The other on the Dark Blue...Set the meter to read 5 volts...With engine at idle and connector in place you should read less than 1 volt (about .85)...Slowly increase the throttle...Voltage should rise smoothly to 4 volts...If the voltage skips, jumps or acts erratic the TPS is defective...Send a comment with results....
I've got exactly the same problem. As suggested before checked the fuses, checked the brake light comes on don't know what could be the problem. Spoke to an independent porsche mechanic who says its probably a cable jam in the roof. £120 to unjam. I've got my doubts as there is no noise or anything its just dead!! Any joy with your roof any help would be most appreciated.
Couple of times when you replace the remote battery, you might have them not working/ responding but just follow the procedure below. Stand close to the car, hold down the open and close knobs for about 10 seconds. Press them at the same time for 3 seconds; then press the open button as the car opens.
The above procedure is applicable to a lot of car brands. It does not matter how many knobs you might have on the remote fob.
I have carried this procedure out on a lot of brands ranging from Honda, Toyota, Rover, Ford, etc. and it works perfectly well.
Hard to believe the fix I have for you but it worked for us and totally surprised us too. We have a 1997 Mercury Sable, power everything and the drivers side window would not go up but all other windows worked fine. I called a car place to see about how much it would cost to fix and he told me to do this......sit in car with car on and have the door open to the window that won't go up, now hold the button in the UP position on the window and slam the door(even might have to have someone slam it for you)....when we did this the window went straight up perfectly and worked fine afterward and for 2 years. So please try it. The guy told us it would work on any power windows in any car because it just jumps the bad part or place in the window thingy lol.....good luck.
are these adj rockers? if so then take the nut down till you have about 1/4 in bolt sticking above it, then see if it will start, if it does then back each rocker off till it starts clicking then tighten till it stops clicking then go another1/4 turn thats your running adjustment!!!
Yes I had the same problem , the battery died, and I needed to jump start the car. When I went to open the windows the windows where not working and the power top would not come down. The smart windows got a glitch, no you may not need to go to the dealer for them to reset it. This is what I did with some experimenting. 1) First charge your battery in the car, 2) disconnect the battery lead to the battery 3) while waiting 5 minutes clean your terminals on battery 4) check your fluids, tire pressure and filter Just for the heck of it 5) reconnect terminals on your battery 6) get in car and gently close the door, the window as you know will be up to high, but this will trick your smart windows to think its in normal position with the door close 7) start your car and hopefully it as booted up to normal. I did find the first time I did disconnect the battery for a few seconds , this did not work, it did not clear the memory out of the system. The other thing was the when I waited 5 minutes the radio station memory was not lost. Don't rush it, Good luck and please give me some feed back.
