All of the window motors utilize the same circuit breaker. Look for a broken wire between the left side of the dash, which goes thru the inner fender to the door. According to my 1988 schematic, the wire you are looking for should be BLUE, and should have 12 volts with the key on.

This is the fuse panel cover for a 1999 1500 Chevy Silverado which fuse controls the driver side window switch


The picture is too dark. Usually the power windows, all of them, are protected by a 25 or 30 amp circuit breaker. It is usually found in the instrument panel fuse block, under the dash on the driver's side. The circuit breaker is a matchbook size "fuse", usually silver colored. A circuit breaker automatically resets if it gets tripped by like a short.

If you pull off the master switch, the driver's side switch, you should have one hot wire with key on. The power wire and the ground for the windows are both in the driver's master switch. This is where you begin testing the power windows if none are working. Check for a hot wire, and check the ground wire- use a multi-meter.

Where is the power window relay located in a 2002 mercury villager?


Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.

Driver's window


The wiring diagrams for your 2003 GMC Sierra power window circuits are copyrighted material and cannot be posted here. However, I can describe the driver's power window circuit to you.

Battery voltage is provided to the driver's window (master) switch via the ORANGE wire at PIn #2 on the switch connector which comes from the 25 Amp Left Window Circuit breaker located in the fuse block on the left side of the dash.

There is a logic module located inside of the master switch which controls the "Auto Down" feature for the driver's window. When the switch is operated in either the "UP" or "DOWN" position, power and ground is supplied to the window lift motor via the BROWN wire (Pin #1, Connector 2) and the DARK BLUE wire (Pin #3, Connector 2) Thease wires will switch polarity dependin on whether the switch is commanding UP or DOWN.

The schematics show that the ground circuit for the driver's window motor is supplied internally by the driver's window switch module. It is most likely grounded inside the door panel itself - the schematics do not specify. To check for ground, you can test continuity to ground on BOTH the BROWN and the BLUE wires by back-probing them with the switch electrical connector plugged in and the window control switch in the NEUTRAL position. They should both have ground.

When the switch is operated, one will remain ground while the other switches to power.

Rear windows won't go down


You also have Circuit Breakers for your windows, Or your Master Switch ,You can Test the Driver Control Switch or the rear switches by removing the Switches and using the connector Plug and a Jump wire try jumping accross the wires,if they go up or down you could have a Bad Switch,if nothing moves more than likely your Window Motor is bad. BUT first CHECK your Circuit Breakers ,It could be Labeled as accessery Relay or circuit Breaker.

I need to know the power source for the driverside master window control unit. is it afuse or relay? and where is it and its not in the fusebox underdash---driverside


Hello: The power source is a circuit breaker located in the fuse box under the driver side dash. There are 2 circuit breakers (about 1 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. The top one is for the windows, swap the two breakers, If the windows work then you have a bad breaker. If windows don't work the remove the window switch assembly from the door. on the back side of the window switch assembly you will have a heavy pink wire, that is power to the windows. with a test light check to see if you have power. If you don't the it could be a broken wire where the wire comes from the body to the door. If no broken wire then it could be a burnt fusible link that comes off the starter. ALSO BELOW the window circuit breaker is a black connector that supplies power to the windows, the trunk release and the sunroof if equipped. This information straight out of a 1988 CADILLAC service manual. Check that black connector for burnt wires and make sure its plugged in tight. Do any of the windows work from the individual switches in the door.

What would causw both electric front windows on 2005 caliver not to work? Already change out switches in the middle of the consel??


I would be willing to bet be willing to bet that you did not check for power and ground at the window switches before replacing them.
Want to SAVE MONEY?
Please read this article before continuing: What Else Could Be Wrong?

I am assuming that you have the 4 door model since you specified "both" and "front". So this advice will be based on that. If you have the 2 door version, this could be very different.
If the rear windows are working and the front windows are not, that eliminates both the power source from the circuit breaker to the master switch and the ground circuit to the master switch, The only "component" that could cause both of these circuits to malfunction at the same time would be the master switch. You could, however, have separate failures of each of the window motor circuits between the master switch and the window motors. GM has had more than their fair share of window motor/regulator failures. This type of failure is not likely to occur on both sides at the same time. This would more likely work something like: Passenger side quits, then several weeks or months later, the driver's side quits. You could also have broken wires inside the umbilical between the body and the doors. With the older cars with the master switch in the driver's door, one broken wire could take out both doors. This does not apply to your vehicle, however. Again, this would also not be one of those things that would cause both sides to go out at the same time.
So to wrap it up, you need to check for power and ground moving into and out of the master switch at the correct locations and under the correct switch operating positions. This will require you to get your hands on the wiring diagrams for your power windows so you know what is what.
If the power and ground is ok at the master switch, then you need to remove your door panels and check for power and ground at the window motor connector. If you are missing either power or ground at any point, then you will need to do a wiring repair. If power and ground is available at the window motor connectors, then you need to replace your window motors and/or regulator assemblies.

2-door diagnosis is similar, but you cannot eliminate "source" power and ground to the master switch by operating the back windows. You will have to test for it at the master switch.

None of my electric windows work. Checked the fuse. Could it be a relay?


There is no relay, and there is no fuse for the power window circuit, there is a 30 amp circuit breaker in the fuse panel under the dash and the circuit breaker should be marked WDO on the fuse panel.

First check to see if there is power from the 30 amp circuit breaker to the master window switch on the driver door, and if power is getting through the master window switch.

If there is power to and through the master window switch (use a test light or a power probe would the best tool for the job), then there is most likely a broken wire inside of the weather boot that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the wires run in from the door through the inside of the weather boot and then through a hole on the body of the vehicle that is located behind the driver side kick panel, and the wires should be inspected from the wire connector behind the driver side kick panel out to the master window switch on the driver door for any broken wires. If you do find any broken wires be certain that they are soldered back together and do not use wire connectors to repair the wire(s) unless you want to repair the system again in about a month or two.

Here are two wiring diagrams (if the vehicle has rear vent windows then use the upper diagram) of a typical GM power window circuit for that year to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.
