No power to passenger door

Out of the blue, all of the power components in the front passenger door stopped working.

No window, no mirror, no power lock.

I haven't looked at the fuses yet, is there one for the whole door?

I have also read there is a door "module" Is it in the door itself?

The door module is the window control switch. Yes it can cause all of your problems. If you know anyone with an x5, try their window switch. Takes a second to pop out and unplug. No need to remove door panel.

Pop the door module out. Check the connections for voltage to ground to ensure you are getting power to the door.

There is no fuse that applies to one door only.

Used modules, if you can find them, are not too $ bad on ebay. That's where I got mine.

Having voltage is one part of it, a bad ground could also be an issue. If you can't 'borrow' a door module/switch to test, at least open up the door jamb connector to make sure there isn't any corrosion/contamination in there. Helps to know all the wiring is good before throwing parts at it.

I have the identical issue on my X5, though the window switch on the door itself is active. Is this the norm for dead switch units?

Yep. Part of the door electrics will work and part won't (e.g., the windows work and the mirror doesn't).

To be safe, swap your part into his X5. That way, if your X5 is doing something bad to the part, you don't fry your brother's module!
