recently purchased a bmw 320cd motorsport convertible and on random
occasions when i open the car the drivers side window goes right down then
when i shut the door it goes back up, very strange. Does anyone know the
on my 528i the windows open if I hold down (as opposed to just press)
the unlock button and close if I hold down the lock button...
Maybe you have a similar program but just for the one window...? (the
programs are customisable on a per car / key basis)
The real question is, why does it stop happening? It's supposed to do that
everytime you open either of the doors. The windows fit into a rubber seal,
and they should drop to clear the seal anytime the door is opened.
My car (a '94 convertable) quit dropping the window (driver side only), and
it turned out to be a microswitch that is built into the door latch
assembly. I removed the door latch and cleaned a spring that activated the
microswitch (the microswitch itself is okay, but the lilnkage sticks) and
this fixed my problem.
You should also notice that when the window fails to drop, the interior
light and key-in-the-ingnition chime also fail to come on. This is a sign
that the car doesn't know the door has been opened -- which is precisely
what the switch is supposed to tell it.
itz really strange i think its time to take into the dealers. my old e46
coupe did the same. the passenger window sumtimes goes half the way up then
stops n goes back down again. But the drivers door p***es me off especially
when itz raining.
