Help... I have a 2003 Chevy Venture Minivan, with both driver/ passenger power windows stuck down. They will not rise thru neither of the switches & I have no manual on me, so I don't know where the fusebox is (I'm actually thinking it could be the fusebox) to replace the fuses (small red "mini 10")....
It is possible that it is the fuse but if so something caused the fuse to blow. It may be in the wiring which if you pull up the carpet by removing the door floor trim and lifting the carpet you will see the wiring underneath. Probably laying in water. Look for splices in the wiring which will have corroded. Repair the wiring then replace the fuse. Another problem may be in the motors found inside the doors. The brushes may have worn out. If so you need to replace the motors. Unlikely that both motors failed at the same time though. Usually the drivers door first since it is the most used.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Check the main fuse box next to the battery, # 8 max fuse powers IGN MAIN 2 Ignition
Switch to Fuses (I/P): BCM PRGRM, FRT HVAC LOW/MED BLWR, FRT WPR/WSHR,
HVAC/DRL, MALL/RADIO/DIC, PWR QRT VENT, RR HVAC, RR WPR/WSHR, SWC ACCY
& PWR WDO Circuit Breaker.
#3 circuit breaker is the front window breaker, try swapping it out with another breaker beside it and thats located in the side dash panel also.
The common cause of failed power window function is the switch on the doors going bad from dirt. Does the power window on the passenger side go down with the passenger side switch?? if it does then its a bad drivers side and and try cleaning the switch with electrical contact cleaner. 95% of the time this will save you from buying a new switch.
It will be in the switch lift up the controls on both the drivers side and passenger side the wires going into the connection wiggle then and the button at the same time if you get any movement then you have a broken wire if not use a test light hook one wire to some metal and the other to the wires if their is any power the light will come on, if no light then you probably have a broken wire. The passenger side power comes from the drivers side control. When you open the doors you will see a large black set of wiring harness in the door going into the side under the dash that is the wiring harness for all the power windows and door locks, open it and test those wires for power.
try checking the switch that controls the up and down, I just had the opposite problem with my 2003 venture the window would not roll down, the garage put in a new switch for the part was about 75 dollars. it took about an hour to fix.
If you can do it, run a jumper from the drivers door to the passenger door. Unplug both motors. try to run the passengers door off the drivers switch to rule out the motor. I don't think it is because the motor is dc. But this is the common point. Please mark this as helpful or fixya. Shuold you have anymore problems, I used to be a mobile mechanic electircian. Looking forward to hearing from you.
check the motor for power is all i know about the window. for the glovebox there should be a small lever in the latch that hooks something on the glovebox grab that and pull the handle that opens the box and the latch should release
