First you need to know if the motor is working correctly by direct feeding of power supply via external wires to the battery if workink check fuses if not then the heat cutoff terminal in the motor needs adjustment

Both front power windows don't work. Front switches on the drivers & passenger door are not backlit, but the rear two are.


Check the Black with Violet stripped wire to the master switch for a good ground. Hook a volt meter to battery ground and the other probe to the ground pin at the master switch black ground wire pin in the connector while operating switch. Post results.

Which Relay/Fuse controls the power windows?


Did you check for battery voltage at the switch , with a volt meter before you replaced the main driver door switch ? Maybe you'll want to take this to pro ,instead of just replacing parts !

The drivers side front and rear windows dont work I have power to the master window switch in drivers door but not to window motors all fuses are ok could it be master switch passenger front and rear work...


you try applying power to the motor with test light to see if they go up and down, if it does. and do you have ground to the power switch, if the answer is yeas to both question, replace switch.

1998 olds cutlass driver side window switches dont work except for the switch that controls the passenger side front door window that works but all others dont work, would that mean need a new switch or...


Do the individual door switches work their windows? If so, it would be the driver's side door switch, the master switch, that is bad.
The fact that one window works off the driver switch means that power for the windows is at least getting to the master switch, and that the ground for all power windows is good. If the other door switches work, it is just the master switch, not a wiring problem.

Only the driver side window works the passager door window ad both real windows don't work what is the problem?


If the lock out switch is not on, I would check for power and ground at the driver's master switch.

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.

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.

Rear side windows


This may be just a case of inadvertently hitting the window lock out n th driver door window switch by mistake. Check that first. Here's some background on window operation

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.
