Question about 1997 BMW 328

2003 BMW 330CI convertible frt. passenger window does not retract

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.

I need an electrical diagram showing wiring from the base,to power windows on a 2003 Chevrolet Venture,my power windows won't work either side in my 2003 Venture,checked power at fuse box next to...


Check the main fuse box next to the battery, # 8 max fuse powers IGN MAIN 2 Ignition Switch to Fuses (I/P): BCM PRGRM, FRT HVAC LOW/MED BLWR, FRT WPR/WSHR, HVAC/DRL, MALL/RADIO/DIC, PWR QRT VENT, RR HVAC, RR WPR/WSHR, SWC ACCY & PWR WDO Circuit Breaker.

#3 circuit breaker is the front window breaker, try swapping it out with another breaker beside it and thats located in the side dash panel also.

The common cause of failed power window function is the switch on the doors going bad from dirt. Does the power window on the passenger side go down with the passenger side switch?? if it does then its a bad drivers side and and try cleaning the switch with electrical contact cleaner. 95% of the time this will save you from buying a new switch.

keep us posted and thanks you for using fixya

My window on my vert was doing that. Short of opening up the door and trying to do it myself, I took it in to the BMW guys at Bimmerhaus. They readjusted the window for me and it was good to go. Pretty much cost 1 hour of labor and a couple of clamps. $100+ or thereabouts.

330ci BMW hydraulic leak in automatic convertible top. Drivers side. Fluid leaked out and top no longer will go up or down.


Well, replace the offending unit, then bleed the air out of the system...Sometimes you have to remove components and invert them to get all of the air out.

I have a 2001 330ci , I can lock the car with my remote with no


It is not a signal issue. If the other doors are unlocking your system is working correctly. There is a problem with the drivers side lock system. Check to make sure all the push rods and such are working and in the correct locations. This most often occurs when someone has attempted to use a "slimjim" or similar door opening device on the door. When this is done incorrectly the lever that attaches to the unlocking cylinder is popped off and no longer functions correctly.

I had a similar problem with a '95 Olds. Turned out that the wires between the door frame and the driver's side door had broken from the constant flexing of the door opening and closing.

Your torque converter is not locking up.
The solution is to have the torque converter replaced and the transmission serviced.
Hopefully, you are still under warranty and can get it repaired it for free.
If not, it can get pretty expensive.
