Power window The driver's side window will come down when I push the button; It is extremely hard to come up. Could it be a fuse or relay switch. Can I purchase it from the parts store or do I need to take it to the shop?

If the window works at all, it's not a switch or relay. Most likely it's the drive motor or regulator mechanism. The regulator acts as a counterbalance to help the motor lift the heavy window. If the counterbalance mechanism is broken, the motor has to lift the whole weight without any assistance, thus it moves slowly and laboriously. Also, continued use will grind the motor gearbox to dust, too, which makes the problem worse. Go by your local parts store and get a Haynes manual for your car. It'll have pictures and good step-by-step how-to-fix-it instructions for this and most other problems you're likely to have with your car.

A Haynes manual is the cheapest and best repair money you'll ever spend. You owe it to yourself to get one for everything you drive. Us it to diagnose your problem exactly. It'll tell you how to get the door panel off, where the mounting screws and hidden clips are, and pretty much everything else you need to know. When you know exactly what parts you need, start calling around to check prices and delivery. Don't forget E-bay, too. Good place to look for lots of car parts.

Hope this helps.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

2007 toyota tacoma started truck this morning windows all went down started driving now noticed no windows will work at aall on all doors.the doors power locks work but no power any of the windows on all...


There is a Power Window Relay labeled P/W Relay. Located under the hood, bottom right hand corner of the relay / fuse block. There is a 50A fuse feeding the PW relay. After the relay there are individual fuses for each window.

Loss of ground from the Drivers Door window switch bank could also disable the windows. The window switch should ground by your left foot, under the plastic somewhere.

My passenger window on my 2004 chevy malibu will not go up. both switches from the driver's side and the passenger's side "up" switch does not work


i believe that there is also a window switch on the drivers side that has a x marked on it, if so, push in this button, it could be in the position to prevent your passenger window from going up or down. this i believe is a safety factor, from the corporation. if after checking the button that i mentioned, and if the window still doesn't work, then check your fuses and relays, under the hood, in a black box, located on the drivers side.

My driver side window wont go up. When tested no power going to it. But the fuse isnt bad. Anyone have any ideas? When button is pushed down the relay clicks.


The problem will be either the window switch or window regulator motor. With the relay clicking sounds like window regulator. It easiest and and costs only a couple dollars more to get and replace the whole assembly versus just the motor. I hope this is helpful.

2002 explorer power window fuse where


In the battery Junction Box check fuse # 6-60AMP will feed Central Junction Box (under driver side), the inline circuit breaker #47-30AMP, through the Accessory Delay Relay, powered by fuse #17-15AMP to the Window Control Circuit. Check the fuses, and for 12v at the points. Then check for 12v at the driver side door switch pannel.

Also uou should check the plug into the main window button console in your drivers door. The little piece of plastic around the door handle pops out when pushed towards the front of the vehicle. This gives you access to the buttons and harnesses.

Good luck (remember rated this help).

How do I fix the problem of all 4 power windows


See if you have power coming out of the master power window switch when a button is pushed down. Remove a door panel and check for power at the window motor with the switch pushed. If you do not have power it could be the master switch. Good luck.

2003 F250 Power Windows won't work


check fuses 35 & 41 (10 amp, red).
it also shows an accesory delay relay in the fuse panel.
And fuse 601? 30 amp.

make sure you don't have lock-out on driver switch panel activated.

Power Window System
Features and Operation
NOTE: The accessory delay feature will allow power window operation up to 10 minutes after the ignition is off or until a door is opened.
If equipped with power windows, the window control switch (14529):
  • will operate the power windows only when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
  • is located on each front door trim panel, and Crew Cab and Excursion rear door trim panel.
  • may be used to raise or lower the driver side, passenger side and rear windows from the LF control on the driver side, or the passenger window from the passenger switch.
  • includes a one-touch down (OTD) feature for the driver door window.
  • can partially lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is depressed half way (first detent).
  • will completely lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is fully depressed and then released (second detent).
Power Window System — Modes of Operation
There are two modes of operation for the power window system.
Manual Mode
When the LH window control switch is pressed to the first down position, the window will move down until one of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is no longer in the first down position.
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the OTD position, causing the windows to enter auto mode.
Auto Mode
Auto mode provides the OTD feature. The OTD feature is activated when the LH window control switch, for the LH window, is pressed to the second down position.
Auto mode will be terminated when any of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The LH window control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the DOWN position (first detent) or OTD position (second detent).
  • Note: Delayed accessory feature must be active.
The OTD feature is controlled by the window control switch.

---------------------------------------------------------
Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).

Windows dont work


First I would check the fuse, if it is burned then it means there is a short in the system. It must be found and repaired before you can continue to check the rest of the power window system. If the fuse is burned, I would first suspect the power window switch,the power window relay, and last but not the least, the electric. motor. 1 time out of 100,000 or more times a wire if chafed or rubbing causing a short.

Most likely this is the case from what you tell me. Get yourself if you don't have a voltmeter or, just a 12 volt test lamp. First remove the door cover screws, door handle, locks etc., also remove the screws in the door switch drivers side. Then on the bottom of the door using a wide flat head screw driver gently pop the plastic tabs out so it don't look hacked. If your using a test light, connect one end, most of the time it's an alligator clip, connect it to a good ground, the door cross brace itself is a good ground and make sure it does not have paint on it. Touch the end of the light to the positive side of the battery to make sure the test light works OK. Connect the the light/lamp end to all the connections on the bottom of the power window switch ( drivers side ), one switch at a time, pushing the switch on and off to make sure all switches have power to both sides when button is pushed, if the test light lights while pressed on, then the switch's are good. If the switch tests good then I would have no problem buying a power window relay. Your Drivers side switch controls all windows that's why you check the power to that switch only. I would change the relay first if the fuse is OK because it's common to be the relay but, one never knows. I hope this is not too confusing but, it beats paying $$$$$$$$ to a dealer or repair shop if you can fix it yourself. And I have a feeling this is a easy fix. Good luck with your repair....tommyjg

Pass.side power window won't work.


First be sure the window lock in the drivers side master switch is not LOCKED. This will prevent the windows from being rolled down by any other switch. (p106+)

Usually windows operate off a RELAY - not a fuse... and all the windows work off the same power relay.

Your Relay Part Number is 41-5021.
Here is the electrical schematic for your windows - showing the relay is common to all windows.

CLICK HERE for a better pic.

If the relay is replaced - and/or tested good, You will need to remove the offending door's panel and verify the motor is getting 12VDC when you press the button for it to go down.

If there is 12VDC when you push the button, the motor is bad.

If there is NOT 12VDC when you push the button - the master switch or child lock bypass switch is faulty.

Click HERE for a PDF version of your owners manual

Under the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section (p.245) you will find a layout diagram of your fusebox.

P.248 instructs to pull DOWN on the fusepanel door to access... however your power window relay is located under the driver's side dash.



If the other windows work - there are 3 options to test/replace - in this order
1. Relay
2. Master Switch
3. Window motor.
