The chip is in the key. Either the key has lost it's program or the transceiver is not recognising the key. Try another key if you have one.

Why did I loose all power to windows and locks in both doors?

On the drivers door. There is a boot that goes between the body and door. You lost power or ground there. Don't try to fix it there, besides soldering a wire to the body side. Then run a wire to the inside of the door that is broken. Cut and splice it inside the door.. Much easier. Otherwise, pull the door off the vehicle and good luck...

Probably the key. The ignition and drivers door get the most use and become more worn. Sometimes this allows keys to work that aren't quite cut exactly like the original. You could try lubricating the other locks with some powdered graphite and that might help. Or if you have more that one key, you could take a small round file and take just a tiny bit of all the small peaks and valleys of the cuts on both side of the key. Do that only if you have another working key so you won't be left without one. Good luck.

It's likely one of the door switches is damaged causing the door open signal. It can also be caused by the key in the ignition, so don't rule out a faulty key insertion switch.

Have your husband or a mechanic test these parts for accurate functionality.

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system

Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.

One thing to check would be the wires in the loom in your door jamb by hinges on drivers side. It's not uncommon for those wires in there to wear, or break from door opening and closing, and causing weakness. Drivers door is usually first to go, as it is usually opened and closed the most. Look for corrosion, break, cracks, thin areas in wires.

My 2003 dodge ram quad cab driver side window switches work however my front passengerside switches do not. I bought a new switch and it still didnt work. could it be a relay or fuse?

In a lot of trucks I have found a cut wire where the wires run from the door to the truck body in between the door hinges. Almost all the time its the wires on the driver side, cause there are so many wires pact in their. Its kind of a pane to get in between the door and the body to look at the wires.

My 99 chevy silverado power window stoped working

This would more than likely NOT be a sensor problem.

In replacing the hinges you more than likely disrupted the wires that run from the cab into the door, causing a ground, pinching a wire or in some way causing no power to get through one of the wires. There is a rubber boot that runs between the door and the cab, pull it back and have someone hold the button in the down position. Then wiggle the wires until the window moves. That truck will have defog mirrors on it more than likeley so there will be plenty of wires to wiggle. When you find the problem wire simply cut the problem area, replace it with an end to end connector (**** connector) and seal it with silicone. If it is not one of the wires, you more than likely had a wire come off inside the door. (depends on how much you horsed it when you were changing those hinges) Thats where i'd start.

Best Of Luck!
