About Window Electric Systems

The window electric system driver side is the system that enables the driver to control the electric motors that open and close the all the electric windows that are fitted to the vehicle. This maybe just the front side windows or all four side windows.

This operation is controlled by a series of two way switches which are commonly set in the door panel or on the central console. Behind the card door trim, within the cavity of each door that is equipped with an electric window is a motor and an opening mechanism that is wired via a fuse to the two way switches. From these switches the driver can open and close all the fitted electric windows.

Problems occurring with the window electric system are usually with the failure of the motor but can also be the opening mechanism and a problem with the glass becoming disengaged with the mechanism.

Access to the the motors and the lifting/lowering mechanism requires the removal of the door card trim and disconnection of the switches wiring.  

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • Karl Benz founded the famous car company. He is not only credited as the maker of the world's first practical motorcar but also has the distinction of being the first person ever issued with a driving license (local citizens kept complaining about the noise and smell of his Motorwagen, and so he needed written permission to drive it).
  • Karl Benz might have patented the design of his Motorwagen in 1886, but it was his wife who jumped behind the wheel first for a quick (as quick a 0.9hp will deliver) 120-mile tour through the countryside of Germany. Poor Karl didn't even know!
  • Mercedes are responsible for a lot of 'firsts' in their long history, including the world's first production of a diesel car. Very impressive, but it only had three wheels. Production stopped pretty quickly in the late 1950s.
  • We all recognise that distinctive Mercedes logo, but did you know that the three points of the star represent air, land, and water? There was a point where they considered adding another point to represent space, but they decided against it in the end.
  • Ever noticed that you've never heard a Mercedes rattle or make any kind of squealing sound? You never will either, because all of their vehicles are welded in up to 10,000 places! You're not going to find a loose nut or bolt rolling around.
