Drivers door electric issues

Post by Tony From West Oz » Wed 31 May, 2017 2:36 am

My Drivers door window and RV mirror stopped working. The CL is not affected.
This all happened at the same time and all other doors work correctly.
Any ideas where to start?
I am reluctant to remove the door card as the clips are likely to disintegrate when removed.

Hi Tony,

first the fuse incl. their contacts (rust?). Then check the switches (cables, contacts). If all that is ok ... well then I guess you have to remove the door panels to see the wires/connectors/motor etc.

If you remove the switches, try to connect another switch to this door ... the old joke "What does a Siemens Technician do, when he has a flat tyre? ... He swaps it to the other side and checks if the fault moves with it" ... :laughing6:

Regards
Thomas

Fuse replaced by mechanic during GP work fixed the problem
