If someone hard wired the ground, and everything is working, leave it alone. otherwise you will need to find out why that was done and correct the problem with the aid of a good diagram and some actual tracing with a test light or meter. Also, check the remainder of the circuits to make sure that the ground is the problem and not another wire.

All power windows don't work


Dealers-hmmph.
You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

1993 mustang conv all power winows and door locks quit working ?


Sounds like your ground part of the circuit is not working. Check in the door opening for broken wires-that's where they get stretched and break. Identify your ground for the windows that comes from the switch and goes into the cabin to a ground location-like behind the kick panel under the dash, maybe located there. You can use your multi-meter to check continuity of ground wire and also if the ground is good. Like this: your red lead to a wire or terminal that has power on it. Then connect your black lead to the ground wire terminal at the switch. If the meter shows voltage, then you know the ground is good. If the ground is not good, the meter won't register. See?

1993 Acura Legend 4 door. Why doesn't my rear windows work? The motors and regulators do work when connected straight to the battery.


if the windows work when hooking to battery, then check the switches and wiring. it may even be a bad ground. I worked on power window a few months ago, and it had a bad ground as not to work. try by running a wire from motor or ground connection to a bare spot on door. if the window works then you can either put in a screw or ground to something on door.

My 2001 olds aurora the driver side window works but the other windows do not how do you fix


hi, i once owned one of these vehicles, i had a problem similar, the body control module was the culprit. you should check the master switch first though, all of the windows get their power through the master switch(drivers) and if it has a bad circuit, the other window switches will not get power. i can't describe the exact power diagram but if you get a wiring schematic, try to power and ground the appropriate wires corresponding to each window motor from the master switch. if they work when powered manually, suspect the switch. if not, suspect the body control module. a little tip to help you when checking the motors, there will only be two wires to each motor, and during operation, power and ground are applied to each of the wires depending upon which way the motor is to be turned. swap power and ground to each of the wires going to the motors and you will get up one way, and down the other. you may want to have a shop diagnose, it can be hard sometime to diagnose window wiring problems.

I just swapped out the doors on my 88 gt mustang i am going from manual windows to power windows. The power locks and power windows will not work. i hooked up a jumper wire to the actuators and window...


These motors have power wires that go to them. they are grounded to the door, so I would go to the switch and check to see if you have a good ground to the switch, you may have to follow the harness back under the kick panel to find the ground, also check with an ohm meter

Passenger Window Problem


On the passenger door, look for a broken wire in the door opening.

So you found power on one of the two wires. That was with holding the switch in one position, either up or down, right? Try it again, now hold the switch in the opposite position as before, now the other wire that had no power the first time should now have power. If not, probably a break in the wiring, look in the door jamb. If not a broken wire in the passenger door, it could be in the driver's door.

You see, the power is reversible to the window motors. When power goes down one wire to the motor, the other wire serves as a ground. The ground path goes back to the driver's master switch, where the ground for all the windows originate. Ground wire from master switch carries power to ground somewhere inside the cabin. Since other windows work, your ground is good. but the pass. window is, or seems to be missing a wire. Check by looking for power on both wires, but the window switch has to be opposite from the first time for the second wire to have power. Only if both show power is the wiring good, but they wont both show power at the same time-the switch has to be in right position to show power.
I hope this is clear, post back if you don't understand.

Oh yes, use the ohmmeter function of your multi-meter to check the wires' integrity. Just don't have any power on any of the wires you are checking, but check between the pass. door and the driver's master. Check both wires that go to the passenger window. That should tell you if you have a break in the wiring.

1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4x4 all power windows not working


had same problem with 94. in the door jam there is a rubber boot that holds all the wires for your power windows and locks and stuff. remove the boot and check each of the wires in that harness to make sure they are not broke. that's what was wrong with mine on both doors. the wires break with repeated door openings.
