My vote is the comfort relay buddy if the fuses are ok

You checked the fuses in the engine bay?

Go outside and grab your window and firmly pull it all the way up while an assistant presses the button up. Seriously, it will work for the time being. I have a 1994 325is and it does the same thin. You'll haveto eventually replace the regulator. but I doubt you want to leave your window down until then.

As ALL of them are not working, it must be a fuse/relay problem

If it is stuck open though, the post above is a great idea

its not the regulator, i just replaced that last week. B/c it kept getting stuck, and the plastic sliding piece kept braking etc. I kno all about the window regulator, this isnt it. This has something to do with the fuse.

I agree with the relay or fuses. I had a 325 that had window gremlins and kept spare fuses in the trunk just for the windows. Also had to replace both window motors.

Check the fuses - good luck
