Master door switch opens driver door window but not 3 other windows, works rear view mirror, is module have to be programmed?


Do the other windows work from thier own switche's ? I would think this is a problem with the SBI - simple bus interface . Do you know anything about serial data communication networks ? When you use the driver door switch to open a passenger window ,the driver door module sends a message on the data network to the other door modules . I remember reading about a data network problem , windows wouldn't work ! Under the carpet behind the driver seat is a connection that corrodes an cause this . Has the carpet gotten wet ? Tan with white stripe wire .

Why do my interior lights flash when i open the driver door only and also my windows have stopped working as well?


Check if all of the windows (except the drivers window) work from the main switch, and from the window switches on each door. If the windows all work from the doors switches, you have a bad master (main) panel controlling the drivers door window. If the windows don't work from any switch, check for a fuse issue, or a pinched wire in the tube from the door hinge area to the door.

How do i fix power windows on 2001 chrysler sebring


if no door or window switches work in entire car start by checking FUSES , then by spraying compressed air into the switches on the drivers door panel whilst moving switches back and forth. then spray some WD40 or electronic componet cleaner into edges of switches whist moving switches hoping they come back to life. then pulling open drivers door rubber harness cover where it enters car. look for wires in the loom that are cracked and broken. this is likely.as wires bend each time door is opened. then remove drivers door panel and test then remove loom connector from door frame and use OHM /volt meter to find broken wires or switches in drivers door problems in drivers door. check for voltage at window motor first. . buy whole new door panel with wiring harness and switches at Pick n pull. if that does not work ..buy a haynes manual and look at wiring schematics. NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER BUY NEW PARTS.

My Drivers door window will not auto drop when i open the drivers door, but will operate normally by the window up and down switch?


If the driver's side window is supposed to drop auto-
matically,when you open the door.I'd suspect the
tiny switch on the lower section of the door,which
should also operate your interior lights,is either loose,
or not working properly. Open the door,and find the
little push button switch,and operate it manually with
your finger. If the window operates properly,the switch
isn't making full contact with the door jamb.If it does
not work at all,it might just be bad,and need replacing. Good luck.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)
