2002 Cadillac escalade driver side windows don't work but passenger windows do work. The drive side ones quit all of the sudden and also my radio doesn't turn off what is my problem? And how do I fix it?


Right side of the vehicle has a different power supply then left side . Two relay's . RAP #1 & RAP #2 . The RAP #1 relay supply's power to the radio an driver side power windows . I think maybe you have two different problems . The radio not turning off, maybe caused by the RAP relay having stuck contacts . Driver side windows not working , could have broken wire inside the flex boot from the body to the driver door .
Rap relay #1 is located in the left instrument panel fuse box .
Fuse Block -Left I/P
On the lower left side of the I/P
The RAP #1 relay is turned on by the BCM - body control module . Could have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored .
Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuit's use a wiring diagram an a DMM - digital multi-meter ? Pull the driver door panel off an check power an ground circuit's for the driver window switch . Free wiring diagrams here

2007 toyota tacoma started truck this morning windows all went down started driving now noticed no windows will work at aall on all doors.the doors power locks work but no power any of the windows on all...


There is a Power Window Relay labeled P/W Relay. Located under the hood, bottom right hand corner of the relay / fuse block. There is a 50A fuse feeding the PW relay. After the relay there are individual fuses for each window.

Loss of ground from the Drivers Door window switch bank could also disable the windows. The window switch should ground by your left foot, under the plastic somewhere.

2002 gmc envoy windows roll down and up by themselves


The power windows on your vehicle are controlled by an electronic control module , as are the power mirrors !
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
• Driver door module (DDM)
• Passenger door module (PDM)
• Body control module (BCM)
• LR power window switch
• RR power window switch
• Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
• Window lockout switch
• Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
• LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)
• RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)

Your best bet , take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

2000 Chevy Blazer Power windows work from drivers


Are you sure the side window lockout switch located on the drivers master switch isn't on? This will kill power to the other three switches.

If your sure its not on than the I would pull the left rear window switch. There will be two dark blue wires one of them should have power all the time. If neither have power than I would pull the drivers master switch and see if there is power at the dark green wires (one will only have power with the left rear window switch in the up position.

If those are good than check the dark blue wires. one will only have power with the drivers front window switch in the up position. the other should have power all the time. If there is power there than you have a broken wire somewhere. The first place I would look is in the rubber boot in between the drivers door and the body of the vehicle.

If there is no power that the switch is bad.

My mazda 3 power window switch not working on master switch,but the other are working.except on front left hand poer window switch


I have a 2005 Mazda 3. The driver's side power window won't go down...the other 3 windows do (from the left door power switch). When I try to open the driver's window, I hear a noise...maybe like a motor switch?

Window problem


Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).
