With an ohm meter test the black wire from the switch plug (sans switch) to vehicle frame for continuity. Ground break will disable all windows. Also check main power, light blue with black trace, with volt meter with ignition on for 12.4 volt (aprox. 12V). No power, no windows. For individual windows get wiring diagram and test pairs as indicated for aprox. 1.1 Ohms resistance. The Ford Explorer as well as most other fords use a VERY POOR WIRING DESIGN and all flex points are weak.

All 4 window wont go up or down on my buick century. all windows stop working at the same time.


With all the windows quitting at once, start with checking the fuse. Some cars list a specific fuse location but there are other fuse locations that state " fuse # controls windows, *********other components. If the fuses are good make sure the relay for the windows are good.

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system


Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.

Power window on driver side stopped working and the door locks stopped working . Also this morning the battery was dead but nothing was left on.


It sounds like you may a faulty door lock switch. If you pushed the switch to lock the doors and the switch stuck and kept door lock solenoids energized, that would drain the battery. It would also keep the door locks from unlocking, as to why window don't work it could all be on the same fuse or circuit breaker. Usually the power windows are on an automatic reset circuit breaker. Do you hear click and a short time later another click (with the battery charged)? If so that the circuit breaker tripping then resetting. Good luck!

I have a 2005 Trailblazer window problem


check for broken wires in the pivot point where the wire loom goes from the fender to the door.this is a problem area because of the movement of the door and the harness having to flex each time it is opened.

1998 jeep cherokee laredo windows stop working then start again after turning off the car and waiting


sounds like the power window circuit breaker(most if not all cars use a metal circuit breaker instead of a fuse that can blow)is tripping becuse of a short or overload in the power window circuit.best bet is get ahold of a good wiring diagram for the power windows.also look for any tightness/binding in the window channels/tracks.and check all 4 doors by the hinges where the wires pass thru from the body to the door panels inside a rubber boot.

Power windows not working, 2 door car.


Yes, it might be a fuse problem or it may be a short in the wiring in the driver's door...the wiring you can see by the door hinge when you open the door or you might have a bad window switch on the driver's door which is causing a short that is effecting your speakers.
