My '93 E36 320i lost power to the electric windows (fronts only fitted in my
car) yesterday, and I'm after some advice of what to look for before I rip
the centre console out. Sunroof works fine, so I'm pretty sure it's not the
comfort relay, and the fuse is fine (swapped for the 10A rear fogs fuse, and
those worked with the fuse from the windows). There's no power to the window
switches at all.
Everything was fine until yesterday when I swapped the phone cradle on the
Nokia CARK91 that was fitted long ago with one that is compatible with the
new Nokia phones. It only required disconnecting the old cradle, plugging
the new one into the Nokia control box, and removing the old cradle. Rather
than take the centre console out I carefully slid the old cable out, which
was routed down the right hand side of the console. I can only assume that
in doing so I must have pulled a connector apart. Are there any connectors
for the window switches there? I lifted the gearstick boot and found a
connector with brown + violet/green/yellow on the left side, but this seems
to be a connector for the hood switch to connect to the factory alarm system
(which I don't have, I had a 3rd party alarm fitted).
Does anyone have any pictures of the wiring that is fed around the sides of
the gear boot under the centre console, so I have an idea of what I'm
looking for? Or any suggestions on what I'm looking for when I take the
centre console out?
