on my old car the window switch on the drivers door got fucked up and kept shorting out and blowing the fuse.. switched the window switch and it was fine.

windows can get fucked up easy.. and in many ways

i'll keep that in mind when i take it to the shop, but its not just one widow, somehow all of them are connected. There's a clicking sound when i hit the switch, thanx for the inputs, any suggestions, coz i dont want the mech. to tell me some weird problem when it's onlya circuit fuse or some silly shit like that...

go onlline and find the procedure the father and son did for the fix.....
it's probably your comfort relay... bmw has colder solder joints on that relay....
so, simply take the comfort relay out and resolder the prong back together....
after that u should be tits and ass.......

dude,
why are u so quick to take it to a mechanic? this is simple electronics.. mechanics are not highly trained in this area.... in my opinion dude, take some initiative and try to figure it out... it shouldn't be that hard... do the research... gather all the data and then get to work with your multimeter.... remember, i gave u a clue before,,(comfort relay), now look it up online or in the Bentley manaul... if u can't do this, then i hate to say that your not a worthy BMW owner....
thats all for now...

Where do you get off talking shit about mechanics? Are you a mechanic, are you going to school to be a mechanic and know this? I'm sorry but this really pisses me off, car's are becoming more and more controlled by computers and electronics and you say that mechanics don't know basic electronics What your saying is that some average joe is going to be "highly trained in this area" of electronics and a mechanic is not going to know anything of it

And to ntenzin04, if you had just taken it to a mechanic to get it repaired and they gave it back working, and it broke the next week you can take it back to your mechanic and have him fix it again for free because he must have shortcuted something and it didn't work on this job. Take it back to the mechanic you took it to before and have him fix it at no cost!

Hey 2.link
Why are you so adamant about defending mechanics? clearly not all of them are hacks.. but far too many are. And Yes, I consider myself a mechanic, having owned my own specialty shop, and I can tell you that like any other profession there are good ones and bad ones.. and unfortunately at least in the NYC metro area, there are a whole bunch of immigrants working in shops with only the smallest amount of skills or training but becuase they work cheap the owner figures they can learn on the fly.. on your car... and pay that guy next to nothing... Lets face it.. after the 5th or 10th brake job on a disc brakes, an orangutang can do what appears to be a passable job.. do you want passable or do you want done right ?

I agree with you their are a lot of flat rate mechanics out there that just want the job done. None the less, I was offended by him saying that "technicians are not highly trained in electronics so you should do it yourself" I think that most mechanics would be a little bit more trained in the area of electronic work than some guy with a 10 year old multi meter his grandpa gave him.

Also, I am going to UTI right now to become a master cert tech in bmw, that is why I am defending mechanics.
