    hi all

    i hav just brought my first BMW and i love it! problem is not all the electric windows work.

    the drivers window is fine

    the fron passengers window trys to move when teh button is pressesed (you can hear it ) but nothing happens

    Ther rear windows are odd.. pressing the buttons in the centre console makes the interior light come on when i release the button it goes off? i can also hear a clicking noise that sounds like the central locking trying to activate (nothing actually happens)

    using teh swithes on the rear doors has no affect at all

    any ideas? i dont have a wiring diagram so cant follow this throught if anyone has one could they pm it to me?

    Thansk

    Matt

    does this make sense?

    I would first check the wiring at the boot hinge as this can cause many issues with electrics. http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...problems-t208/
