    The Ranger, Explorer and Mountaineer models use circuit breakers for components which have a high start-up amperage pull (such as power windows). All breakers will automatically reset if they have been tripped. The circuit breakers are replaceable (should one go bad or not reset) and can be found on the fuse panel.

I have a 1998 cadillac saville none of the windows will roll down checked all fuses under the back seat and under the hood all fine.


The power windows on your vehicle are controlled by a electronic module .
Each power window is connected to a permanent magnet motor. The motor raises or lowers the glass when the door module applies voltage to the motor. The direction the motor turns depends on the polarity of the supply voltage provided by the associated door module. All four doors have their own separate modules.
A serial digital communications link, called the simple bus interface, is used for communications between door modules and the driver's door power window switches. The use of serial digital communications allows the use of a single wire to convey switching information between the LH front power window switch and the driver's door module. The serial communication is also used to transmit switching information from the driver's door module to the other three door modules.
The door modules apply battery voltage of the correct polarity to the respective window motor when any local, or power door lock switch, UP switch is operated, driving the window up. Battery voltage is applied to the respective window motor in the opposite polarity when any local, or power window switch, DOWN switch is operated, driving the window down.

The first place to start when diagnosing a problem like ths would be to hook up a factory scan tool , checking DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes. Without a factory scan tool ,forget it , you have no chance of fixing this . Take it to a cadillac dealer . Could have problem with the
Simple Bus Interface (SBI) Serial Data Link
The simple bus interface is a serial data link. This serial data link replaces vehicle cables between various door modules with a single wire. The same amount of information is sent by multiplexing (time-sharing) data to and from each device over that wire. The serial data signals are referenced to ground. If the simple bus interface is lost, the RFDM, LRDM, and RRDM will enter the sleep mode. With the door modules in sleep mode, no power window operations are possible.

Diagnosing rear windows not working on a 02 Bonneville


Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door power window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door power window can only be operated from the driver door window switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA).
When the driver door module (DDM) receives a window switch request from the DDSA, the DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation to occur. If the status information is correct, the DDM, either supplies power and ground to its associated window motor, or, if the request is for one of the passenger windows, sends a command via the power door serial data circuit to the passenger door module (PDM, LRDM, or RRDM) controlling the window. The passenger door module (PDM, LRDM, or RRDM) controlling the window then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.
When one of the local window switches mounted on one of the passenger doors is operated, the associated door module examines the request and checks to see if there are any messages from the DDM prohibiting the movement. If conditions are correct, and no prohibitive messages have been received from the DDM, the associated door module then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.

Do you know about computer controlled windows and door lock systems ?

Each door module has its own battery positive voltage supply circuit to use for power window operation, but they are all fed by the same 30 amp power window circuit breaker located in the rear fuse block. Each door module also has a seperate ground circuit to use for power window operation. These circuits are in the same dedicated connector as the window motor control circuits of each door module and are used exclusively for window motor operation.
Each door module also has a battery positive voltage circuit and a ground circuit that are used to power up the module ,as well as, to control mirror and door lock functions. Battery positive voltage to the DDM is supplied through the DRVMDL 10 amp fuse located in the rear fuse block. Battery positive voltage to the PDM is supplied by the PASS MDL 10 amp fuse located in the rear fuse block. Battery positive voltage to both the LRDM and RRDM is supplied by the RRDR MDL fuse located in the rear fuse block. Ground for the DDM is provided through a ground circuit to G200. Ground for the PDM is provided through a ground circuit to G201. Ground for the LRDM is provided through a ground circuit to G302. Ground for the RRDM is provided through a ground circuit to G301.
Window Motors
Each door module supplies battery positive voltage and ground, through the window motor control circuits, to its associated window motor. The window motors are reversible. The direction the window moves depends on which motor control circuit the battery positive voltage is applied to, and which motor control circuit the ground is applied to.To move the window in the Up direction, the module applies battery positive voltage to the window motor Up control circuit, and ground to the window motor Down control circuit. When a window movement in the opposite direction is needed, the module reverses the polarity and supplies power and ground to the opposite circuits to move the window in the reverse direction.

If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

I have heard of water on rear floor shorting the data bus bring down the system . no power window operation . There are bus wires under the carpet an a scotch lock connector that corrodes causing this problem . This may or may not be your problem but you can stop looking for relays because their are none involved in the control of the power windows on your vehicle .

I have a 98 Windstar none of the power windows work. Door locks work. I checked fuses I have cleaned the switch contacts if i put power to motor it works.


OK, so looking at this logically, it would make sense that the window motors are not getting power....If the fuses are good, then where is the power failure?
Firs of all, the main power for the window motors comes from a 30 Amp circuit breaker in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box....not a fuse. This supplies power to the Delayed Accessory Relay located in the Instrument Panel Fuse Block, which in turn provides the power to the driver's door master window switch.
If I were working on this vehicle, I would check for battery voltage at connector Pin #6 (Blue/Black wire) at the driver's door master switch. If there is no power there, then I would check for power at the relay terminals. With the key in the RUN position there should be 2 of the Delayed Accessory Relay pins with battery voltage. If one of these is missing, then you will have to look toward the circuit breaker and the battery. (There is also the Generic Electronic Module and the Battery-Saver Relay involved in this.)

If there is power on two pins of the Delayed Accessory Relay , then the most likely cause of your problem would be that the Blue/Black wire is broken inside the umbilical where it goes between the body and the door.

If there is power at the Blue/Black wire at the driver's door master switch, then your problem is probably ground-related. The solid Black wire in pin #7 at the driver's door switch goes through the umbilical to ground # G202, which is located at the left side kick panel area under the dash. This wire could likely be broken inside the umbilical also.

Please also review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Your votes and ratings are appreciated.

I have a 2001 olds aurora. the only door that works is the driver. none of the other windows, door locks, or pass power mirror work. i installed a new window switch on the drivers door and that didnt...


At the moment, I'm just talking about the front passenger side window. On the hinge side of passenger door, should be wiring harness, probably has protective covering, pull the covering back to expose wire colors. Note the wire colors for battery and ground. Battery is voltage, use a test light, check both orange wires for voltage. You can use to testlight also to check ground, check both grounds. With test light connected to battery voltage, probe the ground wire, both of them, if the lite comes on, at least the ground is good enough to turn on the test light.

Power window (rear one) not working for toyota camry 2000


ok. First does the winow operate when controlled from the drivers door. If yes but not from the rear door then the rear door switch has come unplugged or the switch is faulty. Now if the window does not operate from either switch. Verify that there is voltage at the rear door switch, if so and then operate the switch and check for voltage reaching the window motor. If voltage is present the replace the motor

Front driverside power window


Remove the door panel, locate power window motor and unplug. With a test light or meter, check for voltage at the plug while pushing window switch. You will see voltage at one wire to ground for up and the other wire to ground for down. If you have voltage at the plug, replace motor. If no voltage, check switch and wiring. Switch is probable cause for no voltage at motor plug.
