Power windows

Hello, I have a 93 325i with power window issues. None of the windows work, there's power to the motors, no power at the switches. Fuse #33 is fine, but there is no fuse in slot #14. So I put a fuse in, but it just sits there loosely, like there's nothing in that slot for the fuse to clamp with.

Thank you for any help.

Get a copy of the BMW Electrical troubleshooting manual for your car from here Free Phone System Manuals Voice Communications 800 593-6000 and you will be able to track the problem easily.

On a side note, the power window motors in E36's are built like a tank electrically, but the weak point is the motor brushes, which are tiny. 2mm of wear and they are finished, requiring replacement of the entire window motor at $150+! Naturally Brose (the window motor manufacturer) does not supply brushes as a replacement part, but I'm working on it.
