SOURCE: no voltage on 2000 kia sportage drivers side power window

the switch on the passenger door is defective, replace it, the fact it (the window) works from the drivers door confirms this is the correct solution.

SOURCE: My 99 kia sportage power windows will not work.

Try the relay under the steering wheel, behind the panel that is held by two bults hidden under removable covers. Also two screws at bottom of panel. power goes to the fuse before the relay.

Power windows wont work

In the driver side junction box, check the 30A POWER fuse. Power is applied to an integration relay and closes the power relay to apply 12V to the power window master switch. If you have power at the master switch but the windows and locks don't work you may have a bad switch or the motors may be bad. There's not much else that can go wrong

Driver's control for other 3 passenger's window will not work

Do the windows work with their own door switches ?
If so the problem should be in the master switch. A mechanic would check the master switch for power and ground on each circuit.

Power window will go up but not down

This may be related to the BCM (body control module) it can be self tested to see if any faults are present.

Driver's window

The wiring diagrams for your 2003 GMC Sierra power window circuits are copyrighted material and cannot be posted here. However, I can describe the driver's power window circuit to you.

Battery voltage is provided to the driver's window (master) switch via the ORANGE wire at PIn #2 on the switch connector which comes from the 25 Amp Left Window Circuit breaker located in the fuse block on the left side of the dash.

There is a logic module located inside of the master switch which controls the "Auto Down" feature for the driver's window. When the switch is operated in either the "UP" or "DOWN" position, power and ground is supplied to the window lift motor via the BROWN wire (Pin #1, Connector 2) and the DARK BLUE wire (Pin #3, Connector 2) Thease wires will switch polarity dependin on whether the switch is commanding UP or DOWN.

The schematics show that the ground circuit for the driver's window motor is supplied internally by the driver's window switch module. It is most likely grounded inside the door panel itself - the schematics do not specify. To check for ground, you can test continuity to ground on BOTH the BROWN and the BLUE wires by back-probing them with the switch electrical connector plugged in and the window control switch in the NEUTRAL position. They should both have ground.

When the switch is operated, one will remain ground while the other switches to power.

All windows except the driver's side are not working.

First, if the driver's window is working, there is no need to waste your time looking for fuses. ALL of the windows are powered by the SAME fuse.

The first thing I recommend checking is the window "lock" switch on the master switch. If it is in the "lock" position, none of the other windows will work (it is designed to do that)

Other than that, you need to check for power and ground at all of the other door switches. The BLUE/BLACK wire at each of the switches should have battery voltage anytime the ignition switch is in the ON position. If they do not, the wire is broken between the splice near the driver's door and the right front door. Both the RED and the GREEN wires at each switch should have continuity to ground anytime the master switch is at rest with the "lock" switch in the unlock position (the lock switch breaks these grounds to "lock" the windows and prevent them from being operated).

All controls through the drivers side front control dont work. How can I get the window closed ?

If NONE of the windows work, you will have to scan your Body Control Module (BCM) for fault codes to determine what is causing the problem because your windows are controlled by the BCM.

If the driver's window works, but the others don't, check your window "lockout" switch on the drivers master switch to make sure you don't have the other windows locked out. Simply push the switch and try your windows again. If this does not work to get them working, then you will have to scan your BCM as above.
