Exclamation A Little Bit of Help Needed! Please!

Okay I have no idea how to use this site, I just made an account for this very reason but my mom and I need some in put. We currently own a beautiful BMW 97 convertible. It is in lovely shape, gorgeous custom interior. It recently had a few problems but is getting fixed during a slow process due to financial issues and all. But there is one problem we can not seem to figure out. All windows will not roll up or down. At first they were stuck rolled down but we used the key in the door to manually roll the windows up but now they are stuck rolled up. Anyone have any idea as to why this has happened?

Hi how are you. When you push Down on the buttons are you able to hear a clicking noise or the motor trying to go? Have you checked the fuses for the windows also? Try swapping out the buttons to see if you have faulty buttons aswell? These are a few simple solutions that hopefully will work so u dont have to start taking apart the doors.

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.

Start with checking the fuses and then the wiring leading into the door. Make sure you have power first. You may have to remove the door panels to test the motor. Make sure the motor has power. If their is power going to the motor but the motor doesnt work, the motor itself may be dead. Other possibilities include the regulator, the comfort relay, or the switch themselves.

You can try resetting the windows. You need to close all the doors, and raise the window and once it stops, keep holding the switch in the up position for an additional 5 seconds.
