Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

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

The window control on the driver side for the driver side window will roll down, but it will not roll up easy. Sometimes if I push the bottom of the switch down with one finger and pull up and to the left with the lever switch it works. I figure I need to replace the whole master switch control thing. I found the part online, now I'm wondering if I could replace it without removing the entire driver side door panel. Would anyone be able to guide me on how to replace this part? I am no expert on auto repair, but I can follow directions.

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. www.car-part.com 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.

SOURCE: Replacing the door ajar switch on my 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII

If you are getting the door ajar message you don't have to rplace the switch. Just spray it out good in the latch area with WD40. This will clean the switch contacts and make the message go away. I was a former Lincoln/Mercury mechanic and I used to see this problem on a daily basis. This was the Ford fix for this problem and the one I used on my own 98 mark VIII.

SOURCE: 97 Accord drivers side window won't go up or down....

Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.

If your other switches don't work, and the master is not locked, you need a new master as it is keeping the others from working.

SOURCE: Left front door window sometimes will not go back up

USUALLY POWER WINDOW PROBLEMS ARE ONE OF THREE THINGS. 1. SWITCH 2. MOTOR 3. WINDOW REGULATOR. THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM THE LEXUS HAS IS THE MASTER SWITCH IN THE DRIVERS DOOR. IT CAN ALSO AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE PASSENGER DOOR SWITCH....IF WINDOW REGULATOR IS BAD YOU WILL HEAR SOME CRAZY NOISES COMING OUT OF DOOR PANEL...VERY OBVIOUS.... FOLLOW THIS CLOSELY...STARE AT A LITE DOME LIGHT USUALLY WITH DOOR OPEN...WHEN YOU PRESS WINDOW SWITCH, IF THERE IS ANY DIMING OF DOME LIGHT....MOTOR IS BAD. IF DOME LIGHT STAYS THE SAME BRIGHTNESS... SWITCH IS BAD... EXCEPT IN THE CASE SOME HACKER HAS BEEN IN THE DOOR PANEL BEFORE ...IT DOES TAKE A SPECIAL TALENT TO REMOVE DOOR PANELS WITHOUT BREAKING THINGS AND EVEN MORE TALENT TO REPLACE WINDOW REGULATORS

Power windows got rained on won't go up


Here are some things to check, is the problem in the master switch (the drivers door switch that can control all windows.) or check each door window switch for operation. check fuses. most likely if a switch shorted because of moisture it may have blown a fuse. Here's a long shot.... if the fuses are good, try a small amount of WD40 into the switch in question. ( wd40 does not conduct electricity and will wash out the moisture if any.) The next cheapest thing is to replace the switches, very easy to do. The master switch will be the most expensive one, since it has a control for all the windows.
I have had to replace 2 switches on my "04" dodge ram, the master switch that controls all windows,door locks, and power mirrors ($140.00), and a passenger side window switch, ($26.00).
I hope this helps, please let me know.

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.

Hi,i have lexus rx350 year 2007.the power window control on the driver side doesn't work for the other 3 windows,but all 3 windows can power by passenger side and in the back side. thankyou


Hello
I am a little confused about what you are saying here, but I think you are saying that no windows work from the drivers door master window switch except the drivers door window, and that the switchs at each of the three other doors operate the windows ok? Is this correct?
