here the problem: I have a 92 325i four door, all of my window and sunroof (5 total) will not close. I had all of them opened at one point and when I tried to close it, it wont. I checked all the fuses (14,31,33) and they all looked fine. I talked to my mechanic and he said that (he didnt exactly say it but its what I remeber most) all windows shared the a common power source from the same line so that before the wires were spliced, they all must share a certain compnent. (Im no electrician, so pardon my terms) Well, this stuff was called a comfort relay. he said that I should find it and see if its OK. Well, like I said, Im not the best electrician so findin it would be damn near impossible. he also printed me out the bentley blueprint for the windows and I can bearly read/understand it. Yes, Ive checked the window kill switch and its not it. Anyone knows the answer??

Booyashaka!!!

no, I have not mainly because Im not really sure what Im looking for ( all I have to go by is the Bentley blueprint) and I dont exactly have a bunch of time on my hands as of now. I figured that maybe someone had this problem before and so I would not have to fix the relay.
