Hi all,

I have a friend with a z3 2000 1.9. Just tried to start it but the battery was dead, after recharging the battery the central locking will not work and the windows will not go down. I can get the driver side open on the key but cannot seem to solve the other issues.

does anyone have any ideas?

There is a small loom of cables that connect the boot lid to the car, the cables in the loom (aka the loom of doom) are known to break and cause all sorts of niggles like this, I would start at this point.
You will probably need to peel back the outer sheath to check.

That's useful to know as I have similar odd problems... Thanks Dx
