If it is a earth, can you add the wire and earth it out on the body?

ok have got all the power window mechanisms in and the centre console in with the switches, the front door windows go up and down, the rear door windows still dont work????

i dont understand, i thought the black wire was an earth so i tried earthing it but still nothing??

i dont have the rear power window switches on the rear doors does this matter?

all i did was buy a centre console with window switches, bought the 4 doors with power window mechanisms and all the wiring in them, took them out of the doors i bought and put them in my doors??? every thing plugged in fine???

anyone got any ideas??

I think you will need the switches in place for them to work, to complete the circuit. Not 100% on that but I think thats how it is with them.

Also, is your BEM the correct one to run rear power windows?

What car is it?



thats right, rear switches must be in place and funtional for the rear windows to opperate. no need to change the bem though.

cheers
