Re: switch window master
You have a short circuit in the window circuits or a bad motor. They quit working because they are on a circuit breaker instead of a fuse. After the circuit breaker cools down, the windows start working again. You might be able to isolate the problem to a certain door if it only does it when you try to roll down a certain window.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Power windows usually use a circuit breaker (in the under dash fuse panel) rather than fuses or relays. If no windows work, check for broken wires in the driver's door opening, going to the master switch on the driver's door. Or pull the master switch out and check for a hot wire there with key on. You can also check the ground there too for the windows. The ground for the windows will start at the master switch and go back inside the car, possibly grounding at the left kick panel.
Probably bad master window switch in driver front door. Your description is vaque. If driver front door switch doesnt operate the other windows, but they all work from each of their switches, than start with the driver front door master switch. May be worth your time to check wiring in door jam before buying the switch.
Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.
It's either a master fuse for the whole window system (if your car has that) or it's the switch module on the driver's door. All the window power is routed first to the driver's door, then out to the others. If your master switch on the driver's door dies, you'll lose all the window controls. Check fuses, and if they're OK, replace the driver's door switch panel. Once you do that, you should be fine.
If all of the windows do not work and the fuse is fine, the problem is either the window switch on the drivers door or the wire is bad that provides power. Remove the door panel and meter the switch, if you get power to the switch but not through the switch the problem is the switch. If you are not getting power to the switch you know you have a wiring problem.
yes, dat can b ur problem. check under the master switch to c if wire is nt loose. u need a test lite to check if power comin to it b4 changing it. easy put ur test lite **** on any metal that dont hav paint. put da sharp point to the wire undre da master switch and press botton, check wires 1by 1 wen u press it da lamp should lite up. oh yeah key must b on on position wile testing
Without proper electrical diagnostic equipment and based on the very through description that you gave I would suggest getting a new switch. I say a new switch because on the drivers side the switch is one giant junction block. I have the same vehicle and had my door panel off for some locking issues.
