Window trap sensors
Hi All. Do we have any Alfa electrics experts reading this? if so can anyone explain the nature and/or location of the window trap sensors. A scan of the TRW window module has told me that the window trap sensors on my GT are absent ( or sending no signal, which amounts to the same thing as far as the CANBUS is concerned ) Should it have some? I imagine it should as Alfa use some seriously powerful motors in the GT and they can really do some damage if you get trapped against the roof by one.
My windows at the moment don't work from the switch, though the switches do cause the dash to beep when activated so it isn't the switches themselves, the passenger door does produce the correct voltages when pressed. The window does try to go up (it's already fully up) if the riser is activated from M.E.S. you can hear the momentary push before it gives up, but not from the switch. The Cabin module activated Auto drop/rise upon door opening and closing also functions correctly.
Obviously I can't do the "Up and hold; down and hold" reset procedure.
I wondered if the trap sensor problem might stop the windows functioning as a kind of safety measure but don't know enough to be sure and wondered if anybody else has experienced this MES reading.The chances of both antitrap sensors failing at the same time also seems somewhat remote, there's got to be more to it surely.
