When the window has reached the top position keep the window switch up for 15 sec,operate the window complete down and when down hold the window switch down for 15 sec test this after. all you are doing is to teach the control unit the limit stop and open position.

I have a 2006 dodge stratus and all my power Windows are not working. They first started acting up by stopping in the middle of rolling up or not rolling up at all. You could open and shut the driver door...

you might need to check for a broken wire in the loom/harness were the door opens and goes from the body of the car to the door. this is a common place for broken wires. the other window motors are feed by the drivers door switch so if it looses power the other windows will not work. and by you saying you could open the drivers door and they started working indicates this maybe were your problem is.

Diagnosing an electrical issue is never easy or cheap, sorry. When fuses blow, it is due to an improper flow of electrons. When relays go bad, it is due to overheating(which is often due to an improper flow of electrons). The BCM(Body Control Module) could be to blame... let us know how it works out =D

1995 Cutlass Ciera : Can check list to repairing power windows

the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor

Honda accord 2006 only driver window works the other three will not...power is going to them but there is a grounding issue cause when i press the window buttons to work them you hear a short ticking or...

It may be old parts. They get sticky and rusty sitting there and one day usually the windows go down and not up again. Sometimes if all break at once like 3 at once, like in the same day or so, I would say something else is wrong, but you have a 2006.... I have a 2005 with 130K miles from brand new and have to replace all my switches and arms. I do live at the ocean and this all broke there. faster in the rust issues here, just like bicycles in the outdoor carports do here also, unless you bring them inside. Power windows are tricky because the electrical has to be so perfect, and the relay switches seem to be a major short life span issue, and the arms and motor move a heavy load and everything has to be greased well enough for all those years. Without enough juice and well greased components, due to bad electrical connection and age, everything goes sticky, stuck, click, gone. Lot's of people just replace the switches first and the windows work, but these switches are carrying a dirty old load in the window motors.

None of the windows work! 2000 Intrigue

if no fuses are burnt and you have new switches installed then it going to be either bad motors or a broken wire in the harness to the driver door switch set.

Drivers electric window stuck in down position

actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up

RF power window not working properly on 2001 toyota highlander

There should be a relay. Probably located in the PDU box under the hood. If not the motor might be going bad.

My 1998 eclipse power windows dont work i tested the motors they work i changed the master switch still does not work all of the fuses are good and i changed the relaysand they still dont work

ok the motors work...check to make sure you have 12 volts leading to the switch, also check to make sure that the motors have a ground path... or in some cases a return path for the negative side of the motors, if yes then read on...can you manually crank the windows up or down from the inside? taking the motor out..and installing a bolt to make it hand turn-able...or getting a tool like pliers on it to make sure it isn't jammed with corrosion or a broken part?( for the sunroof had to install a bolt and manually crank it with a ratchet wrench make it open and close a couple of dozen times to loosen it up. i bought it after it had been in storage and it seized it works fine on auto yes i lubed it while opening and closing it) if that isnt the case...then you need to test the switch. take the switch out...put a meter on it and check for continuity when the switch is depressed...(should get a short). if the motors,relays,and fuses are good then those are the only ones left. bad grounds are the leading causes for electrical problems with cars due to corrosion.
