Do all the window switches not work, or just one? I would probably suspect a bad switch, but a bad window motor, blown fuse, cracked wire in the door jamb could all be issues as well. Only checking it with a test light or meter will provide the answers you need.

The radio not working could be as simple a blown fuse. If both problems started at the same time, I would suspect something went wrong inside a wire loom (chafing, getting pinched, etc) and maybe caused a short that will have to be repaired before either will work. You will need a test light and wiring diagram for further investigation. If you are not up to that, I would take it to a reputable mechanic.

Jeanette: Do you have the drivers manual for your car. If so look in it for the fuse box and fuse location. It sounds like blown fuses.

Passenger window won't work using the driver side control switch


Open the window with the local button and keep the button pressed for 3 seconds after it has fully opened. Then close the window and keep the button pressed for 3 seconds after it has fully closed. This calibrates the position of the window which it lost when you changed the battery. Good luck

You have to reset the windows and sunroof after you change the battery. For windows open the driver half way and close the window up and hold the up switch for few seconds. If that don't work open the rear window from rear switch and that should work.

Delco radio in 95 blazer


With key in "on" position, but pickup not started, press the "SET" button and the "channel up" button (aka "TUNE +"). "SET" appears in radio window.

Now the "SEEK" button will increment hours and the "SCAN" button will increment minutes.

Once correct time is set, press "SET" button again to get out of clock set mode. "SET" will disappear from radio window.
