Driver's side window & central locking panel

The drivers side control panel for windows, locking and mirrors is playing up a little. The locking button doesn't work and the pasenger side window switch is intermittent. It's nothing huge, and it doesn't bother me that much, but it would be nice to get it working. SO!

Does anyone have a diagram of the pin layout on back of the panel? I figured I'd start by checking the pins and getting the multimeter out on them too.

I think it's probably just got wet at some point and it's messed it up inside; I just want to confirm that it is the panel. If it is then a new one is only 20 or so on fleabay but would rather check it out before I spend the money!

Had mine off today as the unlock/lock button doesn't work. Stripped it down completely and found that it was broken tracks on the circuit board. Maybe yours is the same.

Re: Driver's side window & central locking panel

Cheers Coops, did you find a method to fix it? Dot it with solder or something?

I need a new panel, I had mine out today and it's corroded to buggery! Nice easy diagnosis though!

Re: Driver's side window & central locking panel

I take it your going with the replace it option.
For future reference if you encounter the same problem with broken tracks you can repair them by the following ways:
1. Take a peice of thin copper wire and solder this to the broken track at both ends.
2. You can buy a conductive resin that you can paint onto the broken track and this restores it once it dries.
I've only ever tried the first option and it does work but only for minor repairs. The second one I've only researched and have yet to try it.
The tracks on my drivers door control is only minor damage so i'm going to experiment with the second option once I get my hands on some.

Re: Driver's side window & central locking panel

I haven't ordered antything yet Coops, but the tracks are really ****ed. I'd thought about carefully dropping some solder on but I'm not sure it'll work. A new one is only about 15 off ebay, so I'm not sure it's worth the hassle!
