If all windows are not working there could be an issue with the electrical system of your power window. Beneath the central control on the driver side door you could check if the cables are properly connected to the switches. If they are you can check if there is voltage passing through the wires. Others use a small 12v bulb to connect one end of the terminal to the car's chassis or ground to test for power or you can use a tester. If there are none flowing you may have a blown fuse. I am not sure if the central lock for the windows may cause this if it has gone bad.

Also a common issue when this happens are bad relays or have loosened up on their connections.

See if this helps. Thank you.

    this could mean a bad relay. These are the ones that switch the current to make your motor go one way and another

I have a 1995 ford windstar. The driver side power window stopped working in the up position. When I depress the switch to lower the window, I hear a clicking noise like a relay coming from under the dash...

The clicking noise doesn't mean anything , relay controls one touch down . Just means relay is probably working ! Take the door panel off an check power to the switch , motor . Watch this videos . Test the electrical circuit The Trainer 24 Power Window Troubleshooting

The motor or the switch or the regulator or maybe be a wiring problem .

My 1998 ford f150 4x4 has electrial problems. The dome light, power windows, wipers,electric door locks are not working. Any ideas

Hi, this might be caused by a blown fuse. Check all fuses as there are some systems integrated with others running from the same fuse. If all the fuses are fine you will need to look at the earth connections and power supplies to the systems.

Pass.side power window won't work.

First be sure the window lock in the drivers side master switch is not LOCKED. This will prevent the windows from being rolled down by any other switch. (p106+)

Usually windows operate off a RELAY - not a fuse... and all the windows work off the same power relay.

Your Relay Part Number is 41-5021.
Here is the electrical schematic for your windows - showing the relay is common to all windows.

CLICK HERE for a better pic.

If the relay is replaced - and/or tested good, You will need to remove the offending door's panel and verify the motor is getting 12VDC when you press the button for it to go down.

If there is 12VDC when you push the button, the motor is bad.

If there is NOT 12VDC when you push the button - the master switch or child lock bypass switch is faulty.

Click HERE for a PDF version of your owners manual

Under the ROADSIDE EMERGENCIES section (p.245) you will find a layout diagram of your fusebox.

P.248 instructs to pull DOWN on the fusepanel door to access... however your power window relay is located under the driver's side dash.

If the other windows work - there are 3 options to test/replace - in this order
1. Relay
2. Master Switch
3. Window motor.

2005 POntiac Grand Prix-All windows not working

Under the Hood there is a Fuse Relay Box that has Relays in it. There is a Relay in this for the Windows. Replace this Relay. If that does not work it very well could be the Motor on the door Making the Noise and you will need to replace the motor.
