Post Electrical problem

I have a 1992 318is coupe. All at once my power windows, cetral locking system, and sun roof stopped working. Is this a relay and if so which one?

For all that you have one control module located behind the glove box in the passanger side.
It's a bout 6-8 screws to take out and you will see it. I woulc check the fuses in the first place before starting to split up everyting.

I appreciate your advice but I took apart and the relay did not have any broken or defective solder points. What else could cause power windows and sun roof to loose power?

Thanks

Doesnt matter... if I'm not mistaken there are more internal parts to the CR. That is almost 99 percent of the time the problem when your windows and sunroof dont work...
