Question Windows

Ok so originally all the windows and sunroof didn't work so I took the comfort relay and soldered the connection that had poped. Now the sunroof opens but non of the windows still. It's a 1994 325i...also I'v already checked all the fuses so no it's not that and the motors are good I tested them on a friends car....so I'm out of ideas.....any1?

Whatever the issue was that caused the relay to 'pop' is still present. Check your window switches, and if there is a fuse for the windows also. (I don't recall offhand.) ALso I'd look to make sure the wires running into the doors aren't frayed and shorting out.

Ok so I checked the fuses and theirs only a sunroof fuse and theirs a window lift fuse both of which are good all of the switches are ok except for the driver door...would one switch cause all the windows to stop working...also if so why is the sunroof working because thier all attached to the same relay....only other thing I can think of is theirs a wire grounding out somewhere but again it doesn't make sence since because non of the windows work and after fixing the relay only the sunroof works but I'm no expert....any1?
