My power window will not work is there a fuse that controls all windows


There is a fuse for windows. However, if only one window is non operational, there is either a short specifically affecting that window or the motor for the window is broken.

How to repair the driver side window switch on 2000 oldsmobile bravada


If you can get the switch out without having to take the door's inner panel off, I suppose you could try a salvage yard switch. However, more likely it's not the switch but a problem with the motor-the driver's window is the most used on a car, so likely the first to wear out. Pull the inner panel off and with a spare battery and jumper wires, test the motor operation. Pull off the electrical connector at the motor and hook up the jumper wires-doesn't matter which direction-if nothing happens, reverse your jumper leads-check if motor moves both directions. If motor works now, it was the switch or the wiring from switch to motor. If motor is bad or noisy or slow moving, you will have to replace the motor. Not easy, but doable.

Passanger side window wont roll up from that switch only on master switch


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Is there a fuse for the drivers side window? the window wont go down. all other windows work



Hi there,

All power windows are controlled by the same fuse.

Therefore, the most logical problem will lie either with the driver's window 'switch' or the driver's window regulator 'motor'.

If you know how to remove the internal door panel to gain access to the 2-wire connector on the regulator motor, undo the connector and using suitable jumper wires, connect each plug wire to a spare 12v battery - this should operate the motor. Then, reverse the wires on the battery and the regulator motor should move the opposite way.

If the motor operates "continuously" in both directions when connected directly to battery power, then the fault lies in the driver's master window switch.

If the motor fails to move "continuously" (ie it stops part way) in either direction, then the motor on the window regulator is faulty and should be replaced with a known good motor.

Cheers,

My driver side window wasn't working so i replaced the switch but the driver side window still wont go down. Any info on how to repair my problem, thinking its the motor but can't find any videos...


remove your door panel, disconnect the motor plug, grab your car battery with 2 cables one in each terminal and connect them on the motor plug, one cable in each pin, be careful that the cables don´t touch each other. The polarity doesn't matter, cause if you change them they are going up or they will go down ok. If the window it's up and it doesn't move change the polarity and it should go down. If it works then it could be the switch or something electrical from the plug to the switch. If it does nothing then it´s probably that the window motor doesn't work anymore and you should cange the whole mecanism.

Drivers side window not working. I can manually move it up in down with my hand but the power window does not move when the switch is used. All other windows work. Drivers side makes a clicking/grinding...


IF there is a grinding noise then the motor is trying to move, so take out he unit and try to see if the motor works , if so the mechanism is faulty or the motor does not have power in the drive.
can be the driver switching the motor or the motor itself. Replace after testing the transistor drive.

you have to replace the window regulator reason why is because the cable ripped which would cause the motor to work without moving the window up or down .. regulator is the cable and the rails were the motor makes the woindow move up and down on. you have to replace it.
