United-Kingdom Tyre pressure warning light and failure of electric window

I have recently purchased a 2001 Mini Cooper. Today the drivers electric window failed to wind down and the tyre pressure warning light started flashing at the same time. Are the 2 systems connected inn any way? Fuse? Any ideas? I have not had chance to check the tyre pressures.

Hi ya

They could be connected but first check all your tire pressures and reset the system.

If the window is not working be careful. If the window is not dropping when you open the door you could break it.
Check the fuse in you foot well fuse box for the window there is a fuse for the lh and one for the rh.
You could try holding the window switch down and giving just above the speaker a short sharp shock sometimes the motors stick this normally means it's on it's way out.

Hope this helps let us know how you get on

Thanks so much for the prompt reply. Your tip regarding the short sharp shock worked! I have also reset the tyre pressure as suggested. All looking good now. Thanks again.

Hi ya
Glad it worked you need to look at getting the motor changed if it carries a on.

Item 2 is the motor
