Immobilizer related to window problems?


Recommended Posts

My control unit was recently fried by rain, the car will still start but the locks don't work.

The windows don't work either, at all. Is this related to the fried immobilizer or it this likely something I screwed up when replacing the radio and adding rear speakers, or replacing the parking brake sensor? (The parking brake sensor failure is what caused this whole mess in the first place with the top stuck down in a three day rainstorm). I disconnected the window switches at one point and after I reconnected them they do not work, but I am not sure exactly when the problem started or if it is actually related to discinnecting the switches.

Any ideas on where to star with this or should I just wait and see if programming the new immobilizer solves it?

Thanks, Dave

Yeah I have checked all the fuses. Driver's window goes down an inch or so when I open the door, but switches are not working at all.

Have you checked the fuses for the windows? they are not in the immobilizer/central locking circuit.

Ah... my bad, there is a comfort close connection from the immobilizer to the windows (and top) circuits. That could be disabling the windows.

Looks like getting your immobilizer sorted should straighten things out.

awesome thanks! I thought I might have screwed something up with all this DIY. Really appreciate the info.
