Question about Cars & Trucks
Cut twisted cable in drivers door by accident which has caused the electric windows and side mirrors to stop working, after alot of messing about i have just replaced the whole wiring loom in the drivers door but windows and mirrors still dont work. haynes manuel discribes twisted cable as muliplex system wire, answers from other site have lead me to believe its the wire which sends a signal to the can bus node? the last answer i had told me to: " if you have upset it it will need re connecting into the can bus via a computer link to re align the door processor" how do i do this?

Look in the Engine bay fuse box at Fuse #12 this should be for the power windows. If this checks out OK, it could be a fault with a bad ground wire in driver's side door harness. You should be able to pry the runbber boot from the drivers door, and check the larger Black wire that goes through it. These have been known to break after a few years use. If it is the cable, cut neatly, strip the ends anu use a crimp splice. Hope this is a quick and easy fix for you. If it helps you solve the problem, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

I would rather believe that your problem is not in the switch, but in the mechanism itself. In any case the door panel must be removed to diagnose this problem.

I had the same problem with now power to windows, mirrors and seat. The common soulution is the orange and or black wire in the boot have broken between the door and post.

yes... you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can access the bolts holding the mirror on and disconnect the wiring harness as well..

SOURCE: Radio cuts out windows dont work
I have the same problem with my 96 camaro. I checked the fuses box and the radio, windows and IP dimmer fuses don't have power. More likely is a short in the motor of one of the windows.
