Where is fuse box on 1997 mercury marquis

All windows are on the same fuse in your vehicle.
If one window is not working, it is either a switch problem, a motor problem, or a regulator problem.
You will need to remove the door panel and see if the motor is getting voltage when the switch is actuated. If there is voltage at the motor connector when the switch is actuated, check to make sure that the regulator mechanism hasn't seized due to lack of lubrication (they are supposed to be lubricated annually but nobody remembers to do it.... then they seize).
If you can HEAR the motor turning but it is not moving the window, the plastic gear in the motor assembly has broken off. Chances are you will need to replace the window motor.

My 1997 SL2 saturn driver window won't roll down. it's electric and it doesn't make any noise. what do i need to do to fix it?

get a new power window regulator for 90 bucks on ebay, pay a glass shop to install it. it is an electric motor and did 10 years service, you can afford to replace it every decade. i have replaced 3 on a 99SW so consider yourself lucky.

Saturn 1999 sl2 1.9 window motor driver and regulator have to be replaced as a one piece

Makes sense to do it that way as they are sold as a unit and the gears on the regulator are often stripped so a new motor will not fix that problem. These can be found new aftermarket on ebay for less than a hundred dollars. You can get the same part at advance or autozone for about $140.00. Get a glass shop to do the labor, do not take it to a dealer.

Have a 2001 saturn sl1, the electric window does not work anymore on drivers door, the other three windows still work. The switch is in the middle between the two front seats. is this a major issue or do i...

It is possible the regulator or motor in the window is bad. This is somewhat common on the Saturn power windows as the plastic gears strip out. Most likely the switch is good but you can check by taking the switch out of the center console and checking for continuity.

To examine the regulator and motor you need to remove the outer door panel, which is relatively easy if you have torx bits.

2000 saturn power windows,driver window does not

you would first have to make sure it is switch.Motors and regulators go out often. Does the drivers door switch operate passenger side ok? Can you hear any noise when switch is is up or down position?You would want to make sure all of this first. Door panel controls are easy to replace but you really want to remove panel and make sure you have good motor and window regulator.

How to remove the rear window wiper on a 1997 wagon

First do not pry on it, you will crack the rear windshield and have a bigger problem. In addition to the little slider lock at the base of the shaft mostly likely the wiper arm is corroded onto the motor/transmission shaft. What I have done successfully is carefully hack saw off the top of the wiper arm over the shaft. The top of the shaft is then exposed, soak it over and over with a penetrant, put a gear puller onto it and pull it off. A new shaft is about $45.00 at which may be cheaper than a dealer. A dealer mechanic tells me what he does is drill a hole down through the top of the shaft, squirt a bunch of W40 down into the hole, then drive a metal screw into the hole which pops the arm off. In either event the old shaft is worthless. If your motor works count yourself among the lucky, note that most car parts stores will tell you that one wiper motor fits the rear of saturn SW from 94-99, that is not true. Take your old motor in with you to make sure they sell you the right one.
