Power is usually red, and ground is usually black. You can test them with a Milt meter.

I have a 95 Honda Accord four-door. Drivers door power window will not work. I have replaced the motor and I have taken apart the master window switch and cleaned the terminals. Looking for the relay fuse...

Use a test light and check if getting power on that hot wire at the connection to motor. Check it back to the fuse panel by holding the down button if window up and vice-versa. Since motor was replaced, You know it's good but no power to it. It's got to be a broken wire or unplugged somewhere. Find that spot with a test light. ALL you can do is test it till you find that broken spot.

Power windows all stopped working at diff times ( over 3 months) green lights work on switches. have power to widow motors. Hooked hot wire direct to front pass window motor worked a little ( had to keep...

You hooked a hot wire direct to pass. window? So, what do you mean by having to keep switching on and off, touching and removing the hot wire??
Just a thought: maybe the ground for windows is loose or poor contact. To check, the ground wire originates at the driver's master switch and goes into the cabin with the other wires, and then to nearby ground. It is probably behind the driver's side kick panel screwed to the car frame. Pull the panel off and check the ground. You could also use an ohmmeter and see how much resistance is on the wire from switch to the ground. If high resistance, some strands of the wire may have broken.
Don't know beyond that, unless the master switch is failing. Try a used one from salvage to check. That way you won't spend money on a new switch that you maybe didn't need. Good luck.

1996 suzuki sidekick sport jlx all four power windows and door locks quit at the same time

Look for broken wires leading into the driver's door. Have you already checked for a fuse problem? The windows and locks may be fused, or they may be on a circuit breaker. Sounds like power is not getting to the master switch, or the ground for it is lost. If you have a voltmeter, you can check for power and ground right at the master switch. The switch will have one hot wire to it with the key on, and one ground wire from the switch back into the cabin and then to ground somewhere, probably close by.
Ground a voltmeter or test light, pull the master switch connector apart, turn key on, and probe the connector for one hot wire. If you have it, good. If no power, again check for broken wires at the door. To check the ground wire, put positive lead on the hot wire, and the negative lead into the ground terminal source at the connector. If the ground is good, the meter will show battery voltage, or the testlight will light up. If the ground is lost, you will get nothing on the meter or testlight.

I need help with wire connections for power window switch on olds ciera front passenger door.what color wire connects it to master switch?

In the diagram, the brown wire is voltage for power windows. Goes hot when you turn on the key. Voltage comes from the power window circuit breaker. The black wires in the middle of diagram are ground. Use a testlite to check voltage on brown wire, key on. If the brown wire has voltage, to check the black wire for ground, use a testlite between brown wire and black wire. If lite comes on, you have voltage and ground.

Power window on the driver side dont go down but all the other windows do, what might be the problem

The switch or the motor is at fault. The two wires going to the motor are easy to figure out. One is for up and the other is for down. The motor is grounded to the door so no ground wire is present. You can simply run a know hot wire to each window wire toi see if the motor works. If so replace the master drivers door window switch
