Hi All. I hope somebody can help me with my electric window problem.
Starter needed replacing so I disconnected battery and left it disconnected for about 10 days while it was being repaired. When I refitted started and connected battery back up windows stopped working.
They do drop 5mm when the door is opened and close again when closed.
I have no comfort relay - control module iv fitted - I swapped this out but it made no difference.
When I tested it on a long journey I managed to get both windows down and up again but it took about 1 hour of constant clicking while driving. It moved in small jolts of between 5 and 30 mm. I had to press button at least 500 times to do this. I am afraid to try this again as I may not be able to close them again.
I have read hundred's of forums and went through both haynes and bentley manuals but no joy. Everything is pointing towards comfort relay whch I don't have (although a L reg Nov 1993 should I believe) and the 2 relays in the control module iv which as mentioned above I swapped out. I have checked all fuses - even those unrelated to windows. I don't believe it is the motors as they would not go at the same time. I really don't want to go to a dealer after avoiding them for the starter removal (anyone who replaced a starer will understand what I mean!)
Is there something which was reset/unset after leaving the battery disconnected for this length of time?
While checking behind the glovebox I found an alarm which never worked since I had the car - it was a retrofit but as far as I know it does nothing but could it have reset without power?
Any questions or help will be much appreciated.
Thanks for reading.
