Questions & Answers

Mechanic Q: 3 out of 4 power windows stopped working, what could be the cause??

Our bmw windows stopped working recently. The front driver side window works but the other 3 stopped working. When you try to roll down the front passenger and rear drivers side windows nothing happens, no noise no movement. When you try to roll down the rear passenger window, it makes a repeated clicking noise, but the window doesn't move. the lights don't dim or anything when you try and roll down the window. I am trying to figure out why the windows aren't working, and what caused them to stop working, so I can get fixing them. Any suggestions?

A: 3 out of 4 power windows stopped working, what could be the cause??

Thank you for the response. I checked the fuses and found that one of the window fuses was blown, when I replaced the fuse, all the windows, except for the rear passenger window, are working. Now it is just the rear passenger window, the one that was clicking, that doesn't work. You said that it might be that the regulator is bad. what is a best way to check if the regulator is no longer working?
