The button near the shifter for the rear passenger side window is not raising the window but it does lower it. The button on the door raises and lowers the window just fine. Also, the front button is not lit but the other window buttons are. Are these two problems related? If this can be fixed relatively easily, I'd appreciate some instructions. Thanks.

bad switch from the sound of things.

the light and button not working properly are most likely related...

you can get a replacement from bavauto or your dealer.

The lights can burn out independently of the switch going bad. But it sounds like a bad switch. Try switching in a known working switch from one of the other window switches to trouble shoot.

Now both rear window switches in the front and the switches on the rear doors are acting up. I can make the windows go down, but they won't go up. The front windows are fine. Could the rear switches in the front be affecting the rear switches, or do I have a bigger problem? ghead

Problem solved. Popped in a new window switch and everything's back to normal.

I paid $31.80 at Parts For Imports in Springfield, PA. I've seen them online also for $33, www.thepartsbin.com.
