    Hi guys, new member so sorry if this is in the wrong section, just recently purchased a 3 series convertible 320i 1996, the car has a few issues which I am slowly working through, however there is one issue that has stumped me big style, my passenger side window doesn't work, I've search and search the net for answers but don't seem to be getting anywhere. When you press window down nothing happens but when you press up you can hear a faint click from the relay within the body control module, I've had the door card off and had the motor running up and down by connecting to a battery and all works fine, I've put a new relay in the bony control mod too (solder in relay) but still no joy, when you open the door the window does drop either like the drivers side, I've checked the power wires from the motor to the bcm and I've have continuity but I don't have 12v when the switch is pressed either up or down, I've swapped the switch with the drivers and still no joy, I'm losing the will to live now, can someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks for any help

    Which wires do you mean?, I have 2 plugs going to the window motor, I have checked the other plug with the thinner wires, what are these wires for?
