Mein Auto: 1988 528e
Arrow 1988 528e power window problems

hey guys,

Both the power windows on the passenger side do not work when button is pressed. I thought it was suspicious that it was the whole passenger side.

is there a way to check the motors or the connection to a power source? Or do you think that both motors are shot or something. I just thought it was odd that all three of the switches on that side don't light up.

Well you could switch the switches from the drivers side to see if that is it, but I do not believe it is. Will they move if you help the by pushing on the window? You could take the door panel off and see if the motors are getting any power.
