Question about 2001 BMW 325

1 Answer

Early this afternoon, I opened the window halfway while waiting in the car. When I started my car, the window wouldn't go up. After pressing the switch a few times, the window went down all the way and would not go back up. I can hear a faint noise that the motor for the window seems to be running. Is it a fuse problem? Could it be the switch or regulator that broke? How can I tell? Shall I replace all window fuses first and see what happens? IF so, where are they?

Most likely you need a window regulator, too many plastic parts used on that regulator.
probably one of them snaped.

I would take it to an accredited ac specialist shop if you have to. The burning plastic smell is from a shorted wire ( ac compressor solenoid or thermostat under the dash)

Power window won't go down but you can here the motor running in the door


You can remove the door handles and power window switches and the screws in the door pad and push up on the pad and it will come out of the track and then you can see the motor and replace the part yourself. Hope this helps.

Do you mean upshifting starts way early? Going from 2nd to 3rd in other words?
Ireally don't know your transmission,but the alternator problem might've possibly spiked and hurt your shifting solenoids in the ******. don-ohio (:^)

Sounds like a main fuse has blown. Might be an inline type, a pin type or a fuse link. Usually near the positive post on the battery or under hood
fuse box.

2001 BMW 325i Power Window Won't Go Up


Have you tried spraying the window guides/channels with silicone, the motors are very small that operate the window, it just might be they are sticking from no lube, I have seen this many times in my 30 years as a tech. If this doesn't provide the cure swap the window switchs and see what happens that may be the issue. This is from a post on a BMW owner site:

When I put the switch from the front window in the console for the rear window, I got nothing. When I put it back in the front console socket, I was able to roll the window back up. So, now it looks like I have 1 switch with a faulty down and one with a faulty up. I took the switch out of the console for the rear left window and tried it on the front right window. The window goes up and down! However, I'm still getting nothing when I put it in the console for the rear right window as well, looks like one switch is defective on down, and the other on up, so I replaced both.

2001 325i Power Window can't move back up


it could be a lot of things, It might have gotten off track and now is jammed or something. I would suggest taking it to the bmw dealership so no damage is done to the window itself.
Good luck and keep me posted.
Thanks,
Lee
