Rear Window Anti Trap

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


Newbie here but could really do with your assistance. I have bought a 2006 e60 525d M sport. I bought it with a window anti trap function error, the motor would not function at all and was stuck closed. I have today replaced the motor and assembly for a second hand unit, but the issue is still the same only the window is now stuck open! Anti Trap failure still comes up on the dash and there is no movement at all from the motor. Where do I go from here? I don't want to have my car stuck overnight with the window open!


Thanks in advance

Does it work with the global opening and closing from the key? Hold down the lock button and see if that creates any movement. 


I can't tell pal as I had to make it safe / watertight for overnight so I unscrewed the motor from the mechanism, moved the window to the closed position and reattached the motor.


All I can say is there was not even a click from the motor when trying to operate. Nothing. All 3 other windows operate perfectly....

Power and grounds first then, see if your new motor is getting what it needs.

Dont suppose you happen to know which colour wires relate to power and ground on the motor unit?

Not a clue :lol:


Here's a wiring diagram for the rear https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e60-525d-lim/wiring-functional-info/body/locking-security-functions/power-window-regulator/rear-passenger-s-side/

Hopefully, you can see what goes to what and what should be live when you press the switch. If you examine how many wires are in the cable that plugs into the motor, you should be able to work

out what does what.
