    Hi all,

    Got in the car before, put the passenger and driver window down, went to start it up and noticed the headlamp (passenger side) warning on with no headlight and the brake pad sensor light on, thought strange for both things to happen at once, tried to put the windows back up and the passenger side crawled up a couple of inches then died, back down fine! Up a couple of inches, died again, had to pull it up while operating the switch, got so far then power back and closed normally! Went through it all again and exactly the same thing.
    Bit odd for all three things to go at once I think!
    I havn't had a chance to look or check anything yet and wont get a chance till tomorrow night.

    Appreciate any help or suggestions.

    Changed the headlight bulb and the window is now working again
    The brake pad sensor light at the same time must of just been a coincidence, as I've just checked and the pads need changing.

    Cheers Sam,
    just dont understand why the dead bulb would knock the window out! Can't help thinking theres a little electrical gremlin waiting to raise its ugly head!!!
