    Evening,

    As the title says, the electric windows have stopped working on my 325 saloon.

    It started out as the drivers window only working when it felt like it, then they all died

    I've tried 3 different comfort relays, 3 different window isolation switches, every fuse in the fuse box looks ok, disconnected each motor in turn to see if one of them was the problem, still no joy.

    I've had the meter out and there is no voltage going into the window isolation switch, any advice?? Where does the power feed from?

    Exactly which fuses feed the window circuit? I've already searched on here and someone said that fuse No 14 is the window fuse... looked at mine, it hasn't got a fuse 14, no connections to put a fuse into either


    Women are like fairground rides..... fu*king mental!

    Is my fusebox layout different with it being an auto??

    By isolation switch, do you mean the cut out switch on the dash. Is it reset?
    The supply to this comes from the comfort relay on a red/blue wire. If there is no 12v between this wire and a good earth you need to check for 12v on these wires at the comfort relay with the ignition off and on and let us know the results.
    Red wire
    Red/violet wires

    Does your central locking work ok

    Yes mate, i mean the cut out switch. I'll get the meter out later and post up the results

    Central locking has to be locked twice to lock properly, it must be a dodgy boot actuator, i've already replaced all the body to boot lid wiring when i first got the car

    Right, i've had the meter out and tested the relay, i've attached a drawing of wire location/colour

    Red wire - 12.98v with ignition on or off
    Violet/yellow - 3.5v with ignition on or off

    Any ideas greatly appreciated
