I don't my '95 GC's other windows have EVER worked using their own buttons -- only the master control... Sometimes, if I give the passenger side window a little "start", then the passenger can get the window the rest of the way down using his button.

I decided just to live with it. :o)

My wife drives the exact same car and there is something wrong with the push button that locks the other windows.  Even when it isn't pushed in for some reason it thinks that it is.  I know that is what the problem is, I just haven't fixed it yet!  I think that you just need to take the door apart and clean the plug.  That's what I'm going to try.  Let me know if that doesn't work.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

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.

1998 toyota driver side window switch will not run any windows but lock button still works


"...when master switch remove, NO WINDOWS WORK"
This is correct--your master switch is part of the total circuit for all the windows to operate. Assuming the other windows work on their "relative" switches (passenger switch works passenger window etc.), you can assume this; it is not a relay problem. You only have one relay--a bad one would affect all window switches.
First, check your ground wires! Disconnect, clean (abrasively) and reattach)
Second, use a test light (starting at the master switch terminal) to determine if and why it's not getting voltage.

Passenger side automatic window switch is not working in my 2004 Chevy Aveo. The window is operational from the driver's side master switch but not the passenger side. Im thinking its a fuse or a relay,...


Make sure the window lockout button is not depressed on the master window switch. This will turn off the other switches and not let them control there respective windows.

Power is supplied to all the windows from one fuse and one relay. So if the master switch operates the window than we know the fuses and relays are o.k. We know the master switch will operate the window so that tells us the window motor and ground side of the passenger window motor circuit are also good.

Which leaves us with a bad switch or no power to the switch. The passenger window switch gets its power to operate independently from the master switch window lockout button. When the button is off power is supplied to the passenger switch and allows the passenger to operate the window themselves.

The only thing you need to do is check for power at the passenger switch on the brown wire with orange stripe. If there is power there then you have a bad switch.

Ground goes through the master switch on the drivers side. Bad master switch can cause the other windows not to work. Don't forget to check the "window lock" switch in the master switch, which shuts off the other 3 windows.
