It could be one of two things. Either the fuses have blown and you need to replace them or the power window motor is done and needs to be replaced. Check the fuse box, check the correct fuses and replace if necessary.

if its an e30 3 series there is a breaker that pops and if all your windows are not working thats probably your problem.its right by your right knee when sitting in the car.i think i may have seen them on some e-36 but cant remember.also make sure the window lock out isnt activated.if it more than one window its prob not each motor.its something they have in common.

Also check your sunroof switch (if it is powered) if there is a short in the switch. Some BMW models will temporarily shut off the power windows if the sunroof is activated to save too much load on the battery or lack of amps to the other motors. Check your manual and see what other systems share the same relay or fuse. If all windows don't work, I guarantee it's not the window motors it is something else.

u should start by replacing the general(body module)then the body harness.f it why not put some doors on it and tint the check ur relay and fuse last cuz thats no fun.cant make money on replacing cheap parts.if all else fails go to toys are us and buy a magic 8 ball.then proceed with asking it what is wrong with ur will probably help more than u would think.Specially if your looking for help on this site.can we say redundent?can we say redundent?

I'm looking at a BMW that has all windows that don't go down. The sunroof is stuck and none of them work. It seems as if just the fuses are out? If so please let me know of the issue.

it could be one of three things:1- check the power windows's fuse, this is located in the fuse compartment and refer to the manual book for the exact location of the fuse box. 2- could be a defective switch , check voltage on the wires before the switch and it should read voltage than if good, press the switch at the same time read voltage after switch. 3- if getting voltage to the motor and the motor not responding it is probably the motor, but before you buy a new motor the easy way to doit is to buy a electronic cleaner spray to use it on the wire connector also you can take off the housing of motor and spray inside to clean the brushes and mgnet from dust, this can save you time and money.
