Drivers Door Electrical Issues.
Posted 15 July 2012 - 12:59 PM
Over a period of proberbly a few months the electric windows (mainly drivers side) got slower and slower, then eventually stopped working all together, the passenger side has now done the same.
Also on the drivers side (I dont know if these issues may be related??) the speaker has stopped working, so too has the boot release button.
Im no expert at electrical stuff, so ideas would be appreciated. Could it be a dodgey connection in the drivers door?

it seems that car manufacturers still haven't got this right yet, the Vauxhall Astra H are bad for this on the rear doors...

The switch may be corroded too, may be worth popping it out and checking first.

On the drivers side one of the wires had prety much completley snapped, and the ends were very corroded. (Black wire... Earth? From what I could figure it came from the elec window switch)
Anyway, I spliced a new bit of wire in and still no luck, Could it just be the motor? If so is there any way of confirming this?

Check voltage is getting to and from the motor.
If power is ok then would seem to be a blown solenoid in the motor.

Another thaught though, you cant operate the passenger side window with the switch thats on the drivers door... however it works when using the one on the passenger door.
