    Hi I have a e36 1994 cabriolet 320i and have a slight problem with the electric windows they will only operate when the doors are open, I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem?

    Has the battery been replaced or been flat recently?

    I'm not sure have just bought the car and found this problem afterwards, but most likely yes.

    Just out of interest try the window reset, ignition on and hold the window button up for 20 seconds, then try the window.

    Hi

    I have tried resetting the windows that has not worked, whenever I mess about with the windows they seem to stop working then after I have drove the car they start to work but only when you open the car doors.
