98 Espace windows and central locking


I have a 98 Espace . A few weeks ago the central locking failed on the drivers door. I removed the door card and applied power to the door lock, the door locked. I then reversed polarity and it unlocked? All other locks are fine. I attached an additional earth to the lock, it now locks but will only unlock manually from inside.

Yesterday the drivers electric window failed. I removed the door card( I am an expert at doing this now!) and applied current to the motor and it closed (could not believe there was not a manual method to close it!!!)

When I used the switch I herd a click coming from the fuse bank on the passenger side (relay?) Later that day both windows worked then failed. The following morning they worked then failed again.

Any ideas anyone? Are the problems related? Is there a relay for the electric windows?

Currently in eagle8's garage:
