But I know why... The power windows (all four) failed on my 92 318i. I found the central lock controller (behind glove box, to the right of the ABS controller) wasn't grounding the comfort relay. (Pin 9 on the smaller white plug from the lock controller to Pin 9 on the relay) There was continuity along the wire, so I figured the lock controller was fubar'd. I ran a wire from chassis ground to pin 9 on the comfort relay, so basically the system is always hot, and I will use the window cut off switch on the dashboard to cut power when I'm not in the car until I get around to replacing the central lock controller, or finding a ground source that is interrupted with the key off.
Someone has probably decided they didn't want to buy the $350 central lock module and perma-grounded your circuit as well.
