Subject: Re: Second appeal - Power Window Problem  HELP!!!

Grant... The Bentley repair manual has a good component and circuit breakdown of the power window system. There is a relay under the backseat that is used for automatic control of the driver's side window, Center relay of the 3 relay set. in Addition there is a connector just inside the fender on the driver's side that connects to the motor, or at the motor itself, put power directly to it to see if it works (isolate from the system first). Remember that this motor needs a few amps, connecting directly to the battery will not move the window, I used a battery charger to do this on the 86 900T that I am parting out. If you hear the motor start but the window not move, reverse the leads (Up/Down). Note: Always check the motors on the bench before installing, specially the ones hard to get to.
