With the driver's door ajar . apply one or two windows to move with the switch and observe the dome light . does it dim slightly as you apply the switch. then you have power to the switch. if not look to the relays or fuses

Rear left window not working

You have a defective power window motor and regulator assembly. The regulator is pop riveted in so you must drive out the rivet center and then using a special rivet cutter bit cut the head off the rivets. You can use machine screws to put the new regulator in as long as they are short and don't interfere with the operation of the new regulator. I do not show the rear window regulator as being available in the aftermarket, you may have to buy it from Ford.

Where one of my wires on my dash goes to

You will need the wring diagrams for the car. But unless something doesn't work then don't worry about it, there are lots of wires and connectors that go nowhere. These are for accessories that where available but not ordered.

Hi Harlan.

I see that you mentioned a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan in your other question. I assume this question is about the same vehicle.

The checkup will start from the fuse and relay in the power distribution center. A way to test the relays is swapping two relays of the same kind to check if that makes any difference.
If relay and fuse are OK check the wiring to power distribution center, check the dimmer switch and the connection to BCM (the module under the dash).

I have uploaded relay map and wiring diagram at this link. Please click on the link. If necessary click on the picture again to enlarge.

The window switch on the drivers door to raise and lower the rear passenger is not working. I was able to lower the window but now it is stuck in the down position. Is there a way to override and roll up...

  • So if I understand you correct the drivers door switch is not working for the rear window.
  • Try using the the switch on the rear door for that window then.
  • The master switch is great to work all windows but the rear window switch should still work as well even if the master switch on the drivers door fails.
  • Now if both switches should don't work then it may not be a switch failure at all. this could be a wiring issue or a burnt window motor/regulator.
  • In this case you will nee some help as you are going to "help" the regulator out. Once you get it up I advise to let it be until repaired. You don't want to stress the track up to much before the whole assembly is replaced (should this be the problem).
  • So if both switches don't respond the your going to grab the window (one hand on each side of the window) as if your palms are touching and pull up at the same time the switched is being pushed up.
  • It may take a bit to get it but it will be fine.
  • If the window is down in the door (in the way down position) then get your fingers in there and grab the window and slowly pull up on it. Make sure the switch is being pushed to roll the window up at the same time.
  • Once you get it up a bit then take it the rest of the way as explained above.
  • I have had to do this on a few occasions and it works fine.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

All controls through the drivers side front control dont work. How can I get the window closed ?

If NONE of the windows work, you will have to scan your Body Control Module (BCM) for fault codes to determine what is causing the problem because your windows are controlled by the BCM.

If the driver's window works, but the others don't, check your window "lockout" switch on the drivers master switch to make sure you don't have the other windows locked out. Simply push the switch and try your windows again. If this does not work to get them working, then you will have to scan your BCM as above.

Brake lights don t work turn works lights work brake light does not eover window works

First check the 25 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. If that fuse is OK, contine troubleshooting below.

If the center brake light is working, check the 15 amp brake fuse in the cabin. If the center brake light is not working, the problem is probably the brake switch above the pedal. Take the connector off the pedal and use a big paper clip to connect the 2 terminals in the connector. If this turns the lights on, replace the switch. Let me know if you have questions.

In my rear tailights, the breaklight component is not functioning. i replaced them with brand new lights. the center breaklight located in the back window is still working. Cant figure out why they wont...

Have had this problem many time's here at my shop, if center brake light come's on which you said it does, fuse and relay are good, the problem is your turn signal switch cause the brake light circuit goes through the switch, the switch is bad even though the turn signal's still work's, good luck, hope this was evrey helpful.
