    Hi I have just purchased my first BMW. I have a 1996 E36 318i Cabrio.

    I have came to this recommended site for some technical advise.

    I purchased the car quite cheap. The car is in pristine condition but has a couple of faults.

    1. The passenger window does not work at all. Normally when you open the door the window drops and goes back up when closed. Also the single switch for the window does not work and neither does the total switch. When i press the button you can hear the window ECU behind the glovebox clicking. There is no power getting to the motor. I have hot wired the motor and the window goes up and down.

    2. The electric roof was in manual mode when i got it. The orange handle under the back seat was pulled which dropped out the 2 motors. I have not put them back in as yet. Is there a safety switch on the motore causing them not to work when they have dropped out. Would the window not working cause the roof not to work.

    I have a feeling it is the ECU behind the glove box but dont want to buy one if the problem is something else.

    I would really appreciate some help
    Thanks
