    I've replaced mine 3 times already. I've got a friend at the local GM dealer, and it costs me about $10.

For a 2000 Lexus RX300, the windows all work when controlled from the drivers seat, but won't work from other doors. I've tried turning the master window control switch on and off...any ideas?

You have a bad ground wire somewhere; probably right off the drivers side door. It may be difficult to locate because all the window switches are wired to the master control switch on the driver side door. I often find the wire breaks somewhere in the conduit between the door and the dash. All the opening and closing of the door damages the wire, particularly when the wire doesn't have any room to flex. Once you find it and bypass the broken connection all the switches will work. Start with the connections on the switch and work your way to the dash. You probably can find a good YouTube video that can show you how it's done. A multimeter will be very useful checking the continuity of the wires. I like to disconnect the switches in both the driver and passenger doors. I will then use a piece of wire to bridge the connections on (passenger) door connector, or ground out to the vehicle body. You can use the multimeter probes on the driver side connector to find the broken connection without tracing the whole wire harness. There should only be one hot wire that is supplied with power on the drivers side connector. Use the multimeter to find the hot wire first, using the vehicle frame as the ground, and then ignore it. Once you find the color of the wire that's broken you can just follow it along the wire harness till you find the break.

Bad switch on master control, does the switch feel soft of catchy, sometime the little saddle connections in the switch come out of place and can be replaced. Sounds like a new driver side control.

I need to learn how to replace the master power window switch for a 2007 Dodge Charger.

You are correct, the switch is broke internally and your have to replace the Switch Assembly. There are 2 ways, taking the Door Panel OFF and then unplugging it from the rear and then it will pop out much easier and less opportunity to do damage to the door panel itself as you can see if it is screwed into position or just retaining clips (metal springs) that you just push down (Slide to the Rear and then the top pulls out ) or if it is held in place by phillips screws... if you go to Ebay and look carefully at the Master Switch, if they flip over the Pics, then you can see if they are Spring or Screw in type. has these switches if you want to purchase a used switch or www.ebay has them also for less money and sometimes you get them from a dealer for less.

How to replace gmc envoy master control switch

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's , control module's , using a factory or professional scanner to communicate with said control modules ? Here is a list of componets involved in controlling the power windows ,lock's , driver an passenger door mirrors .
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
• Driver door module (DDM)
• Passenger door module (PDM)
• Body control module (BCM)
• LR power window switch
• RR power window switch
• Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
• Window lockout switch
• Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
• LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)
• RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)

The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Door Module (PDM)
• Liftgate Module (LGM)
• Door lock relay
• Door unlock relay
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• Reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors
• LR/RR LOCKS 10A fuse (relay supply voltage)
• Door lock switches in driver and passenger doors (switches are integral components to the DDM and PDM)

I don't think the switch would be the problem , more then likely broken wire's inside the flex boot from the body to the driver's door . See this more often then the switch going bad . Just replacing parts could get expensive . I would think a power wire or a communicate network wire broke .

It has to be the switch or the wiring, right? So pull out the switch and probe the back with a volt meter to see if power is coming out of the switch. If yes, trace the wires to the doors.

Door locks not working, passager side windows not working, dome light on always.

sounds like a broken wire it is very common for them to break in the door hinge area normally more on the drivers side because it is opened the most flexing the wires in the door fold and the door light switch is in the latch and if the wire is broke to the switch in the latch the body control module thinks the door is open the whole time.the wires that power the passenger window have to come from the drivers master window switch. the door locks are the same way.

If the window lock-out swich located on the drivers side door master switch is in the off or un-lock position, then the problem will be a broken wire or wires in the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle. Any broken wires that you find should be repaired by soldering them well, use the same gage wire to lengthen any broken wires in order to successfully solder them, and do not use wire connectors if you want the connection to last.
