Question about Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

I have a 1993 golf GTI K reg, the o.s. electric window and the tilt and slide sun roof have both stopped working. the near side window works ok. The sun roof works ok via the internal switch,I have changed over the internal door window switch to see if that was faulty but it works the L H window ok. if I lock the car door the near side will close, but the sun roof and o s window will not close up.Could this be an earth fault or a broken wire some were?.

    were can I get a work shop manual or diagram that covers the wiring, I have a haynes manual, but it does not cover the sun roof and window electrics, so I can not tell what wire does what. ?

Sounds like you have either a shorted wire or an open wire. Open wire is broken, a shorted wire means it is being grounded out. It sounds more like a grounded wire since the unit still somewhat works. It is possible that the motors just have gone bad.

Electric windows not working, how do i fix this golf gti 115 mark


To isolate your problem a few questions needed.
  • Do you hear any noise when you hit the switch
  • Does it move a bit
  • Can you operate it from the outside locking mechanism
If you can hear the motor (regulator) but window does not operate, then we established that power is being supplied and fuse/relay are ok. Your problem is a bad window regulator or a guide cable is fraying and caused it to knot up on the guides.

If you hear nothing at all then you first need to figure whether it's a fuse, a relay or the wiring is bad.

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.
