c5 estate rear window operation

Post by citroen7 »

Hi guys
I know this is a subject well covered but i have read everything i can find and i am still struggling . My window did the old open on its own thingy sometime ago so i followed advice and disconnected and left it shut. I aquired a complete new window and fitted but it wont open the microswitch works and 12v across the actuator energises it my understanding is the black is a common earth the pink is the supply to the heated rear window which works and the thin yellow is supply to the microswitch but if i measure continuity across the window i only get a bleep between pink and one connection on the bottom of the screen for the micro switch which i assume is not right so i bypassed all the internal screen wiring and still nothing i followed the yellow wire back which turns to red and then purlpe in a connector in the side trim on the passenger side and that disappears god knows where. the wires in the corner of the tailgate are fine so i am now confused any help ,diagrams etc would be most grateful ,inncidently has anyone modded it like a renault scenic i knicked 12v from the number plate light so the boot would open happy to do this if thats the only way to get working
thanks Robin.

ok with a bit of head scratching and the desire to have the car back in one piecei ran two new cables from the micro switch to the connector above the glass put everything back togehter and turned on the ignition to move the car and the dash came up with the message boot window open which i thought strange as it was shut ,but i thought i would check anyway and it was secure so i pressed the microswitch and the bloody thing opened! and since lunchtime has worked fine work that one out because i am still in shock!
