Is My BCM Broken?

The drivers electric window will not go up or down. I have applied power directly to the window motor wires and the window will go up and down. I have purchased a new console electric switch. I have replaced the relay under the steering wheel. Fuses are OK. I replaced the wires from the window motor to the body connection plug. I do hear a relay type clicking coming from the BCM when you attempt to use window switch.
Im not sure how much it is to buy new. i always prefer new parts. I own a VT 98 Berlina. it has the LUX or HIGH level of BCM. If someone has had this problem before or if this sounds familiar let me know.

Cheers

The fuses might be okay, but what about the relay? Tried swapping the electric window relay for another one?

inclinned to agree, its the one that gets used all the time....

changing the BCM should fix it??, (if its good) or the other thing is to change the current relay to a solid state one.


not an easy job, but one that will last....
