Ok the motors work...check to make sure you have 12 volts leading to the switch, also check to make sure that the motors have a ground path... or in some cases a return path for the negative side of the motors, if yes then read on...can you manually crank the windows up or down from the inside?...by taking the motor out..and installing a bolt to make it hand turn-able...or getting a tool like pliers on it to make sure it isn't jammed with corrosion or a broken part?( for the sunroof had to install a bolt and manually crank it with a ratchet wrench make it open and close a couple of dozen times to loosen it up. i bought it after it had been in storage and it seized up...now it works fine on auto yes i lubed it while opening and closing it) if that isnt the case...then you need to test the switch. take the switch out...put a meter on it and check for continuity when the switch is depressed...(should get a short). if the motors,relays,and fuses are good then those are the only ones left. bad grounds are the leading causes for electrical problems with cars due to corrosion.

you try applying power to the motor with test light to see if they go up and down, if it does. and do you have ground to the power switch, if the answer is yeas to both question, replace switch.

Doorlocks dont work except from passenger side. mirrors dont work. windows dont work from anywhere


First, check all fuses to make sure that none are blown.

If the door lock switch works on the passenger side, then the drivers side door lock switch is probably faulty. Use a multi-meter to test the Drivers Side Door Lock Switch (Black and Pink/Light Green wires unlock the vehicle, and the Black and Pink/Yellow wires lock the vehicle)
If the switch is tested and found to be operating properly, you may have a faulty Body Security Module or Drivers Side Door Lock Actuator.

If neither of your Power Mirrors are working, you probably have a faulty Exterior Rear View Mirror Switch, Power Mirror Module, or blown Central Junction Box Fuse.

If none of your Power Windows are working, you probably have a faulty Accessory Delay Relay or a blown fuse in your Central Junction Box or a faulty Master Window Adjust Switch (all of the Power Window Switches feed through this Master Window Switch). If the Power Windows didn't stop working at the same time, you may have faulty Window Adjust Switches, or faulty Power Window Motors, this is very unlikely though. It would also be a good idea to inspect the wiring for any obvious damage.

Power windows quit replaced fuse under hood replaced fuse inside still have no power windows


#1 so many people make the mistake of pressing the window lock switch on the drivers master window switch, double check to be sure it is not engaged. If that is not the problem you can pop the master switch out with a small flat tipped screw driver & check for power with a test light. If power is going to the switch & the windows still won't work, replace the master switch. good luck

With a small flat tip screwdriver, pry the master window switch up & with a test light check for power to the switch, if power is present & all windows not working, replace master switch. be sure window lock is not engaged.

None of the windows work! 2000 Intrigue


if no fuses are burnt and you have new switches installed then it going to be either bad motors or a broken wire in the harness to the driver door switch set.

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.

Rear wiper


It is the power window relay for feeding power to all the windows except the drivers. If the drivers works the other three don't it is time to replace the power window relay.

Another quick test is to see at each window if the switch works then try it at the driver master switches for each window. If you notice a difference then it is either the power window relay or the master switch.

You can post further feedback based on what you find so I can pinpoint exactly. If all windows are not working then it is the 30a power fuse
