The control may have gone bad... You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then you can disconnect the controls and test them

SOURCE: no power windows or

Hello there!, You might have moisture in the switch, You should buy a can of wd-40 if you do not have it already and then remove the switch from the door, turn it over and spray the wd-40 inside the switch you will want to make sure that the spray gets down inside real well. Turn it back over and spray in around the top side as well. Then work each switch both directions several times. After this wipe everything dry with a clean cloth and replace it. If it is a moisture problem this will fix it. wd-40 is a water displacer for electronics. if this does not fix the problem you will need to replace it.
( The switch is removed by using a flat tip screw driver to release the clips or plastic tabs located on the plastic trim around the switch set itself ). Hope this helps.

I am having problems with the passenger side front window, seems the reverse polarity issue

Depends on your car.. power comes from the master switch. Ground is threw the BCM. I f you have a power problem, it is in the boot at the door( wire broken) or the master switch. The reverse polarity is from switches. Master or the passenger side.

2005 Gmc Sierra 5.3 litter SLT. Wire diagram for passanger side power window. No power to door.

Do the power door locks work for that door ? Does you vehicle have door courtesy lights , turn signals on the mirror ? If your vehicle has these other options an they work , you have power to the door . There is an electronic module inside the door ,called passenger door module ! where did you check for power at , the window switch ! These are computer controlled an you would only see a few volts when pushing the switch !


  1. Monitor the passenger front window status in the passenger door module inputs list.
  2. Activate the passenger power switch on the passenger door module in the up and down positions.
Does the window status data parameter change accordingly?
Go to Step 8
Go to Step 15


  1. Monitor the passenger front window status in the driver door module inputs list.
  2. Activate the passenger front power window switch on the driver door module in the up and down positions.
Does the window status data parameter change accordingly?
Go to Step 9
Go to Step 16
Operate the passenger front power window in the UP and DOWN directions from the master switch.
Does the passenger front power window operate properly from the master switch?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 5


  1. Install a scan tool.
  2. Monitor the window lockout data parameter in the driver door module inputs list.
  3. Activate the window lockout switch to both the On and OFF positions.
Does the window lockout data parameter change state appropriately?
Go to Step 5
Go to Step 16
Your best bet is to take this to dealer or a ASE certified repair shop.

1998 olds cutlass driver side window switches dont work except for the switch that controls the passenger side front door window that works but all others dont work, would that mean need a new switch or...

Do the individual door switches work their windows? If so, it would be the driver's side door switch, the master switch, that is bad.
The fact that one window works off the driver switch means that power for the windows is at least getting to the master switch, and that the ground for all power windows is good. If the other door switches work, it is just the master switch, not a wiring problem.

Follow me here: The driver side passenger window will go up and down while operated independently with the switch on its door. However, the driver seat master switch will not control window to go down

Not following you completely.
When you say driver side passenger window, you mean the driver side rear window ?
The window motors get power thru a power window control unit and thru the driver master switch.
You'll need a shop manual with the wiring diagrams to track down the problem.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo TSI, Passenger side windows do not work from master switch on drivers door. Both driver side windows work from master switch on drivers side. Passenger side windows do work...

It has to be the switch or the wiring, right? So pull out the switch and probe the back with a volt meter to see if power is coming out of the switch. If yes, trace the wires to the doors.

What would causw both electric front windows on 2005 caliver not to work? Already change out switches in the middle of the consel??

I would be willing to bet be willing to bet that you did not check for power and ground at the window switches before replacing them.
Please read this article before continuing: What Else Could Be Wrong?

I am assuming that you have the 4 door model since you specified "both" and "front". So this advice will be based on that. If you have the 2 door version, this could be very different.
If the rear windows are working and the front windows are not, that eliminates both the power source from the circuit breaker to the master switch and the ground circuit to the master switch, The only "component" that could cause both of these circuits to malfunction at the same time would be the master switch. You could, however, have separate failures of each of the window motor circuits between the master switch and the window motors. GM has had more than their fair share of window motor/regulator failures. This type of failure is not likely to occur on both sides at the same time. This would more likely work something like: Passenger side quits, then several weeks or months later, the driver's side quits. You could also have broken wires inside the umbilical between the body and the doors. With the older cars with the master switch in the driver's door, one broken wire could take out both doors. This does not apply to your vehicle, however. Again, this would also not be one of those things that would cause both sides to go out at the same time.
So to wrap it up, you need to check for power and ground moving into and out of the master switch at the correct locations and under the correct switch operating positions. This will require you to get your hands on the wiring diagrams for your power windows so you know what is what.
If the power and ground is ok at the master switch, then you need to remove your door panels and check for power and ground at the window motor connector. If you are missing either power or ground at any point, then you will need to do a wiring repair. If power and ground is available at the window motor connectors, then you need to replace your window motors and/or regulator assemblies.

2-door diagnosis is similar, but you cannot eliminate "source" power and ground to the master switch by operating the back windows. You will have to test for it at the master switch.

None of my electric windows work. Checked the fuse. Could it be a relay?

There is no relay, and there is no fuse for the power window circuit, there is a 30 amp circuit breaker in the fuse panel under the dash and the circuit breaker should be marked WDO on the fuse panel.

First check to see if there is power from the 30 amp circuit breaker to the master window switch on the driver door, and if power is getting through the master window switch.

If there is power to and through the master window switch (use a test light or a power probe would the best tool for the job), then there is most likely a broken wire inside of the weather boot that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the wires run in from the door through the inside of the weather boot and then through a hole on the body of the vehicle that is located behind the driver side kick panel, and the wires should be inspected from the wire connector behind the driver side kick panel out to the master window switch on the driver door for any broken wires. If you do find any broken wires be certain that they are soldered back together and do not use wire connectors to repair the wire(s) unless you want to repair the system again in about a month or two.

Here are two wiring diagrams (if the vehicle has rear vent windows then use the upper diagram) of a typical GM power window circuit for that year to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

1995 Astro Van electric windows no power Is there

The problem will either be a faulty master window switch on the driver door, or a broken wire at the master window switch, or most likely the problem will be a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and most likely it will be inside of the weather boot for the driver side door. If there is power going through the master window switch then look for a broken wire.

Here are two typical GM power window wiring diagrams to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Cant roll down windows from drivers door. i can roll down the passenger side window from that door but i cant roll down any other window.

The Master Switch may be bad. Thats the first thing to verify good or bad. It may be a big deal to find a wiring diagram and then verify where voltage is lost. All of the window power goes to the Master Switch,(through the lock out switch) then on to each window. Except for the right front window. The diagram is confusing, it does not appear that the lockout switch turns off the RF passenger window.
