    electrical prob

    right was in my car today and when i tried to move the mirrors neither side worked also noticed that the drivers window wouldnt work too checked fuses and all are ok the other 3 windows work fine from the drivers switches. i then tried to drop the windows on the fob and again it only dropped the 3 windows anyone have any suggestions??? my next step will be to look at the wires between the door and pillar when i have time. hope its an easy fix

    I was going to say - have a look at the wires between the door & the pillar as this causes speakers problems too when some of the wires are slightly broken.

    thats the block going to the door mate some times the wiers are broken but most of the time you just need to unplug it and spray electrical cleaner in both ends and all is fine

    I would go for a broken wire in the door you will probably find it won't lock with the fob too

    Just by the symptoms it sounds like either the earth or the power have gone

    But yes check the plug too

    On mine the wires had gone as did the pins in the plug I have had to cut out the plug as it was that bad the wires went first which caused power loss to everything but when the plug went I was getting crackling speaker

    it did it again yesterday so i checked the door and it was locking, looked at the wires and sure enough they were two broken ones, sorted them for now but looking closer there are slight cracks in the other wires so might have to go price a door loom up and if its reasonable the ill replace it.
