Electrical problem
1996 BMW 328 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi,
I'm trying to confirm the most likely problemed part causing the windows and sunroof to stop working on my 96 328 is. The vehicle doesn't have a comfort relay and fuses seem to check out.
If you can try to give me an idea of what's the likely problem and part location, I would appreciate it greatly.
Thanks, Steve

There is a comfort relay that is in the E box that causes this issue and I cannot seem to find the part number for it. I am working on it, please stand by.

The body electronics control module is suspect here. The comfort relay I was thinking of was for something else. Recheck all the fuses and try a battery disconnection(do you know the radio code?) For 10 mins, this sometimes works like control/alt/delete on a computer. The next step would be to start checking power and grounds, do you have a repair manual? Amazon. Com for a Robert Bentley publishing manual. They are quite good and I recommend them highly.
