Hi! My suspicion is that theres a mainboard failure. There maybe blown capacitors that needs to be replaced. The capacitor replacement will be better and cheaper than replacing the whole mainboard. Once replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    It can be found on any local electronic parts center. I would suggest an electrician on doing this to prevent damage specially on sensitive parts.

Glass broke on slide piece. where can i get a replacement? and how much?

It is for sure that B&O spares are not available in any common spares shop. Hence either you will have to source the item for original fittment or maybe you can fabricate one with the correct diamension. Incidently this will work out cheaper that the original unless you get lucky to get one from an old set. Hope you decide and think I could help you decide. Good day

Cable on power sliding door broken...will not operate with power...expensive fix?

speaking from one that has change SEVERAL of these. If you havent done it
before its a pain in the ****. I have done so many that I can do them in about
30 minutes. You can do it with or without the door on the vehicle.
Personally I do them with the door off. You can't fix the cable if its broke.
The cable has to slide down 2 sets of sliders and in and out of the motor
theres no tolerance for a splice anywheres. I had no idea those motor assy were
that expensive.

The way this is changed is
you remove the door. (disconnect negative on battery, or turn power slide door
button to off) Remove the panel, drop the glass down about a 1/3 the way, pull
the 2 rubber grommets off from inside the mod. Remove 2 10 mm bolts, remove the
back sash on the door and the inside rear window rail, pull the inside rubber
window run slightly out. Slide the old glass out, drop the mod down, remove the
cable assy bolts (4 10mm bolts) , unplug the wiring harness, remove the 2 10mm
bolts atop the rear slide roller, theres also one 10mm inside the door at the
very top near the rear slider. Remove that bolt too, its grey and about 1
1/4" long. You also have the remove the rear latch lock, 3 T30 torks
bolts. Unsnap the cable from the 2 retaining clips and slide the power door
assembly out the bottom of the door. Reverse assembly for the new one. Id
imagine they are charging you about $300-400 labor. Id do it for $100

lol No idea where to get a new one
reasonably tho. Its sad cause I see 1000's of them daily. Ask me how I know
this? I work in offline repair at Toyota Motor
manufacturing Indiana.

Good luck Rob

I agree,
if you don't know what your doing with the new motor your going to shell it out
quicker then you put it on. This is where the dealer comes in handy. I've
replaced a few and from I've seen they usually run around $1100-1200 without

Elecrtial problem

Sounds like a newer 5 series. The SZL module located in the steering column has failed. Most common indication of this failure is the wipers being stuck on. Unit will need to be coded by a professional. Just for fun you can try a memory dump: remove negative battery cable and then positive battery cable and touch them together for 30 minutes then reconnect everything and hope for the best. If the cables are too short to reach each other slide a screwdriver in through the negative opening and into the positive opening. MAKE SURE NEGATIVE CABLE DOESN'T TOUCH THE POSITIVE CABLE WHILE IT IS CONNECTED TO THE VEHICLE.

Sunroof doesn"t open or close

Section 01-17: Roof Panel, Sliding—Electric 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Electric Operation The sliding roof panel (502B98):
  • is available as an option.
  • is electrically operated through the accessory delay relay (controlled by generic electronic module (GEM)).
  • is of self-storing design.
  • requires a specific headliner.
  • utilizes a unique roof console and dome lamp.
  • has an air deflector.
The electrical system operates in the following manner:
  • Two switches control movement of the roof panel.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch (15B691) is rocked rearward, the roof sliding outer glass panel (502A82) slides into the storage space between the roof trim panel (51968) and the roof panel, exposing an opening over the front seats.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully back in the storage space, the roof sliding outer glass panel moves forward from the storage position.
  • The rear portion of the roof sliding outer glass panel moves upward on two lifter arms near the end of the forward travel, allowing a weather-tight seal when the roof sliding outer glass panel is closed.
  • An AUTO feature allows the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch to be touched momentarily to cause the roof panel to automatically move to the fully open position.
  • When the TILT roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully forward, the rear of the roof sliding outer glass panel pops up to the VENT position.
  • With the roof sliding outer glass panel in the VENT position, rocking the TILT roof sliding panel switch rearward closes the roof sliding outer glass panel.
  • Sliding Roof Panel Does Not Open or Close
  • Open power feed fuse.
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Damaged roof sliding panel switch.
  • Damaged sliding roof panel motor.

  • Damaged roof panel
  • Obstructed roof panel
  • Guide
  • Damaged drive cable(s)
  • Open Power Distribution Box Fuses 1 (40A) or 4 (30A)
  • Circuitry open/shorted
  • Damaged roof sliding panel switch
  • Damaged sliding roof panel motor

Bang and Olufsen Beosound 4000

Sounds like the belt drive that controls the doors is broken. If you're a repair headed person, you can get the repair manual online for $25 or so. Parts may be harder to get, but with the proper imformation, you may be able to do the work yourself.  It's both tricky and super easy because the design is generally very very good, but knowing the technical details requires a decent amount of patient brain work and proper tools.  DaveA
