1993 BMW 325i , 4dr.
all power windows-sunroof don't work, all of the sudden.
I checked all the fuses . They are fine. Only the driver window has a fuse according to the label in the box, and it is #33. Shared with parking light and other stuff which works.
The breaker on the dash to the right of the ignition is fine. I have remove it and checked the resistance. Nearly 0 ohm. I tried to shorten the two wires to the breaker. No difference.
The lights on the window lift buttons are off all the time. Just no power.

I have read here of blue Comfort Relay over the pedals. I removed the cover under the dash but have only found 2 orange relayes on the left wall.

I have cleaned the contact to all the fuses (about 40) and the 15 relays next to the fuse box. No change.
HELPPPPP

I just fixed the same exact problem and the problem IS the comfort relay. It should be right under the steering column, try this link;
