There are 2 switches on the fuse panel and i do not have an owners manual. The top works some of the time. I have an after market keyless entry and do not understand how it operates.

Believe it or not, it sounds like it's the handbrake....does the light come on when you engage the handbrake?

The brake must be fulle engaged for the roof assembly to operate. There is a light that comes on the dash when it is engaged.

Power window won't roll up on auto


If window will not roll up it can be caused by a problem with the mechanism, no power getting to motor, bad switch, bad motor, fuse issue.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada...Yesterday all of a sudden my passenger's side window stop working(up and down)...the power lock and the heated seat all stop working on my passenger's side...?


If you have an Owners manual, try looking for a fuse panel diagram. Your could have a bad connection inside the doorpanel which shorted the fuse. The seat drive motor must be wired to a separate circuit coming from the floorboard and its okay.
The circuits are wired independently to protect the lighter wires from the heavy drain of the seat motor. If you had the heated seat function working on the seat at the same time as adjusting the seat motor it would be too much for a single circuit, so they gave you two circuits.

If you are going to work on the door panel, disconnct the NEG battery cable so you won't short out something taking it apart.

Another Repair place you might try is a Glass Replacement shop. They install the inner workings of window tracks daily and remove the door panels to do it. They would be able to find your wires, test your window motor, and get you on your way quickly.

Unlike a Dealership, they have a high turnover of glass installations daily. Some even come to your house to repair your problem. Your car would be repaired more quickly with these services.

Removal of rear door panel on a 1999 cadillac deville. window will roll down but not up. is ther a way to roll up the window manually? when the door panel is removed.


well, when this happens to me, I grab the glass with a pair of pliers with tape on the window top, to prevent damage, Push on the switch to go up. Sometimes motors stick in the upward direction when down too low.

check the fuses and relays per your owner manual.
Is it all windows from master switch?

I own a 1995 mercedes SL500 and recently started having trouble with the left front door window. While stopped in a construction zone, I rolled both windows down. After leaving the construction area, I...


The window position is monitered by the softop control module. It sounds like the glass is very dirty and drawing too much amperage during window operation. The soft top is electro hydraulic. The roll bar is operated normally with hydraulics but it is mechanically released in an emergency situation. 1st make sure your windows are clean and the express(one touch operation) is working-the soft top will not function properly if the windows are not synchronized. Next be sure your roll bar works-hold swith in up position to lock roll bar rams in if they have been deployed. next put your top all the way up. untill windows roll up and try it with the engine running and trans in nuetral- if it still does not work mechanically secre rear of top with tool provided in your tool kit the owner's manual will tell you how to do this. good luck

Pass.side power window won't work.


First be sure the window lock in the drivers side master switch is not LOCKED. This will prevent the windows from being rolled down by any other switch. (p106+)

Usually windows operate off a RELAY - not a fuse... and all the windows work off the same power relay.

Your Relay Part Number is 41-5021.
Here is the electrical schematic for your windows - showing the relay is common to all windows.

CLICK HERE for a better pic.

If the relay is replaced - and/or tested good, You will need to remove the offending door's panel and verify the motor is getting 12VDC when you press the button for it to go down.

If there is 12VDC when you push the button, the motor is bad.

If there is NOT 12VDC when you push the button - the master switch or child lock bypass switch is faulty.

Click HERE for a PDF version of your owners manual

Under the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section (p.245) you will find a layout diagram of your fusebox.

P.248 instructs to pull DOWN on the fusepanel door to access... however your power window relay is located under the driver's side dash.



If the other windows work - there are 3 options to test/replace - in this order
1. Relay
2. Master Switch
3. Window motor.

Cannot get the rear driver window to roll down


no there is no fuse for just that rear window they all share a common fuse..if it will not work from drivers master switch or the rear switch on the dor then you will need to remove the door panel and test the elcetrical connector at the window motor.. just remember to have the rear switch plugged in when checking for power and ground at the window motor connector..

Fuse / windows


1.check the fuses for the problem with the cig. lighter and it dont hurt to check them all just in case another is bad.
2.it sounds like the power window motor is woren out and could go out at any time. there arent any fuses for them only relays(maybe).
