You need to find out if the switch has a live feed going to it, it maybe as simple as a fuse or it could the the BCM (Body Control Module)
Firstly, model and year of bmw would help

i believe that your trunk is unlocked and to prevent damage the system locks it self, check the trunk.
lock it with your key then try it out.
that happened on a audi cabriolet and we locked up the trunk and problem solved. let me know if that helps, if not i will try something else

SOURCE: xenon headlight problems

there are 3 things that make the xenon in your car work the bulb, an ignitor, and a control module, you know your bulbs are ok so thats good, now you will want to swap the control modules they are a metal box attached to the headlight assembly its roughly 4"x4" you will remove the hheadlight assemblys to get to the module, there are 4 8mm bolts and then it pulls out, it the light follows the control module then thats what you will need if not you will need an ignigtor, as far as the flickering that is moet likely the module going bad, the company that makes this system is AL (automotive lighting) there is an SIB from BMW about this that says under a warr claim both control modules are to be replaced and the bulb of the faulty headlight, however i cant count the number of times i have done all that and still have to replace the ignigtor, If it is the Ign that is alot harder to swap as you have to dis assembly the entire light assembly

1. Turn ignition switch to "on" position.
2. Open passenger window completely from passenger side window switch.
3. Close passenger window completely from passenger side window switch, and hold switch for an additional 2 seconds.
4. Turn ignition back to "lock" position.

That's it. Works like a champ. And here you thought it was more than just a battery dying....I did.

BMW rear left hand side tail light and flasher not working also drivers window not working


The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...

Ford fairlane1992 electric windows - front driver side not working


Ok Could be one of 3 things...... 1. Bad switch. they're realively easy to replace. Cardone/HELP makes these switches and you can get them at any auto parts store.
2. Bad ground to the window motor.
3. Bad window motor.My best advise is goes the easiest, cheapest route. Replace the swithch first. That way if it solves the problem, you only have a couple of bucks into the repair, and you didn't change anything you really didn't need to get into. If it doesn't fix it, you still have a few bucks into it and a brad new switch in it that you don't have to worry about for a long while.
IF you are not mechanically inclined with automotive elctrical systems, and the switch replacement didn't work, take to a reliable mechanic and have it checked for the bad ground first. Window motors can be pricey.

Only the driver side window works the passager door window ad both real windows don't work what is the problem?


If the lock out switch is not on, I would check for power and ground at the driver's master switch.

HOW TO REMOVE REAR DOOR PANEL FROM 2000 BMW 328I


Hi,
1.You need to replace the window regulator (lifting mechanism). Hope you have some tools. Leave your car outside so the sun can warm the door you'll work on.
2.You need to remove the wood finisher by the inner door handle (we use a nylon pry stick made by a company called CR Lawrence item #216) release the two screws behind it.

3.Carefully lever out the window switch and disconnect connector.
4. Remove screw (T-20 torx). Remove the two screws at the bottom of the arm rest. Use your pry tool between the door panel and door to pop the door clips around the perimeter of the door.
5.Pull the door handle up and away to remove the top portion of the panel.
6.Remove the door handle cable from the cable side and speaker connector.

7. Use a razor blade and carfully remove the foam vapor barrier top and both sides WITHOUT tearing the soft foam (it keeps water out of the rear footwell during rain). Don't take the bottom of the barrier off unless you are replacing it. You can get the sticky black sealer at your BMW parts center when you get your parts.


8.Remove the three T-30 torx on the window motor, twist and remove. Cut the window regulator cable so you can move the window at will. Remove the 8mm bolt that clamps the window to the regulator. There is a metal nut that fits into the back of the plastic clip on the window glass. The nut likes to fall out when removing bolt.
9.Unclip the glass out of the regulator and manually push window up to top of window channel. Grab some masking tap and run several strips on the outside of the glass-over the top of the door- and back onto the inside of the glass to hold it up while you work on the regulator.

10.Remove the three 10mm nuts and remove regulator. Replace the nuts with three improved ones part number 07 14 7 153 450 .

11.Replace LR Regulator 51 35 8 212 099 .



12.Reinstall all in reverse order. Make sure your vapor barrier seals well. Make sure all door panel clips are in the door correctly before popping on door panel.

Good luck!

My drivers side electric window won't work


Hi Hawkeye1973

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.

If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.

TULL FAMILY
You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.

Very best regards

Soft top 97' problem


Open the trunk. Remove the material covering on the left hand side. You will see 2 electric motors(similiar to the ones that wind the windows). One motor open and closes the roof lid the other brings the roof up or down.

These motors can be engaged and disengaged manually. 

First check that the motor's are working. 

If the motors are working. 

Then engage and disengage until they are in sync and open and closes the roof in the correct order.

Please come to me for further assistance.
