2002 kia sportage electric windows

The electric windows no longer work. they stopped then started working again, but now they're dead. I checked the fuses. One window is down, the rest are up, and the rainy season is coming. What should I check first?

    I have a 2001 Kia Sportage-power windows have stopped working, all in the up position. Fuses are ok in both locations. Could there be a relay somewhere? Kia parts dept said the driver's side control box was not likely the problem as the other windows did not function on their control switch.

Hi i had the same problem with my windows in my kia.Im going to give you some simple things to do.First open you driver side door.On the inside of the door(WHERE THE DOOR ARM IS) its a thick like rubber stuff covering the wires.Cut the rubber stuff off and pull the wires from the carside not the door until tHe main plug come out(ITS TWO)(ONE FOR LOCKS AND ONE FOR WINDOWS).Take both loose one at a time and blow in them.I figure that out with mines that a bunch of dust and stuff got into the plug and short it out.And make sure when youre done use black tape to cover the wires back to protect it from doing it again.Hope this helps

If both windows are not working, have a look at the driver's switch.  Both windows obtain power from there and there is usually a lockout for passenger units there.  You'll likely find a loose wire or corrosion.

My power window will not work is there a fuse that controls all windows

There is a fuse for windows. However, if only one window is non operational, there is either a short specifically affecting that window or the motor for the window is broken.

My power window and door locks fuse keeps blowing.

When the fuse blows figure out what you are doing, what switch is being pressed, then remove the needed panels to access the wiring to the switch and motor it operates, then you will find the damaged wiring and repair the short, no quick fix, just hard grunt work.

1995 Toyota RAV4 3-dr passenger electric window has stopped working - where to begin...

Try the safety switch...The one you lock so children in back can't let the window down... That would be the reason the front window still works..Tap it hard while pushing down the button on the window...Worth a try..

Power windows stopped working and replaced the main switch but still not working . where is the fuse for the power windows?

Locate the fuse panel just to the left of your steering wheel, facing the driver's side door.

  • 2 Open the panel by pulling the cover outward. Look at the fuse listing on the inside panel of the fuse box to identify the location of the fuse you wish to replace. The location and amperage of each fuse varies slightly between all Ford Explorer models, so it's important to check the corresponding number listed on the inside fuse panel.
  • 3 Use the fuse puller in the fuse box and carefully remove the fuse for the electrical malfunction you're experiencing. Examine the fuse to see if it's blown, represented by a burned-out wire. Compare it to another fuse that works if you're are unsure.
  • 4 Discard the blown fuse and replace it with one of the same amperage. The amperage for each fuse is listed on the inside cover of the fuse box.
  • 5 Replace the fuse puller and cover the fuse box. Start your Ford Explorer and check to see that the electrical issue is resolved.

    The electric windows no longer work. they stopped then started working again, but now they're dead. I checked the fuses.Both windows are down, we tried replacing the door window switch but that didn't...

    I would scope the wires and test them for voltage. Try to find which one is bad. Did you notice if there were burned wires around the fuse housing?

    Driverside door lock & window stopped working.

    It may seam extremely complex this problem however its likely vary simple.What you need to do is fine out what works and what dose not . Dose the keyless work on other doors the battery is G or NG. You also mention the remote starter stopped working and D and P position no longer works correctly with the controls /switches in the drivers side door only' not the other doors ..
    The control panel for the locks and window switches are on the arm rest drivers door it tends to get wet rain snow window open over time bad connections /switch contact and that is the point you need to look at first . Get some electrical contact cleaner spray into the switches not to much spillage use a tube or it may damage trim materials .
    Then use the controls back and forth if you see any improvement of function starts /then stops any change you found the problem .Its in the door.

    Power windows not working

    Remove the door panel on a non working window and at the window motor hook a multimeter to each of the 2 wires then try it at the master switch. IT should be 12V. You can also try hooking it to a battery one way is up the other is down. Usually if it is an intermittent power window it is caused by broken wires inside the drivers door flexible rubber between door and interior.
