Question about 1997 BMW 328
When opening the passenger side door, the fully up window does not retract the 1/4" or so (to allow gap so window does not hit convertible top when door is closed). When the door is open, the driver display indicates the door is open. The window works when lowered by window switch. Driver's door works fine.
I do not have a wiring diagram for the vehicle. I would assume that there is a switch to indicate that the window is fully up, that would, in combination with the door open indication, cause a control unit to drop the window the 1/4". I would think that, in this case, the switch that indicates window fully up, would be the most likely culprit with wiring and the control unit being other possibilities.
The problem is in the door lock and the assemble must be changed. when one looks in the catch which look the door you will see a white switch in the lock and this the defect. the switch is built in the lock.
