1996 both windows stopped working
Hi, a great thread so here is another related problem. 1996 SL600 (hall sensors not microswitches so no controller resets with paper clips/LEDs like older models). In for a top replacement. Everything works perfectly. The top is down and windows are down. Battery disconnected/reconnected and top being raised (incorrectly) without windows normalization - of course the top goes up only to a vertical position. Manually pushed further and cloth of the top is removed.
Now both windows do not respond to windows up/down switches.
- STAR fault readout shows only that both windows are not normalized. All faults reset. No change
- Fuse 5 in trunk OK (covers windows and central locking, central locking works)
How to otherwise reset the RST/RV controller in addition to fault clearing? STAR actuation menu only shows the roll bar, am I missing the explicit RST/RV reset somewhere?
What would be a next step to diagnose? Note that the battery was being disconnect/reconnect before without problems, so blaming it for the RST/RV controller failure may be premature. Also (albeit incorrectly) the top was operated without windows normalized before without problems.
How to determine if the RST controller is good or faulty before jumping to replacing it? Any other ideas? Please help!! Thanks
