    My E36 328i coupe has developed some electrical problems all on the passenger side of the car.

    The front side light does not work (bulb changed - still no difference), the front window does not move when you open and shut the door and the central locking does not work on that door either.

    I have checked all the fuses and they are fine. I don't know if these issues are connected. Any help would be greatly received. The ABS light also comes on once in a while but I don't think that has any bearing on this problem.

    Thanks

    Check the boot wiring harness. The wires rub, chafe, expose and short inside the rubber weather boot that goes between the car and the boot lid. Pull back the rubber and check. Repair as needed, then check all fuses.
    You can also check the wiring harness that goes into that non-working door.
    I would also suggest checking the door switch. If it is broken the car won't know when it is open/closed.
