It is always the motor I have found. If it was a fuse neither vent would work.

Rear vent windows won't open


First you need to find out if there is power and ground at the switch if both won't work,if no power there then look for a blown fuse in PDC under hood. Check them all as it may be on a different circuit,also check wire harness from the door into A post going to under dash,over time with door opening and closing that harness has a tendency to break wires that may be the power to the switch or output to vent motors (inside the boot)

Rear window vents wont open 2003 expedition


The rear quarter windows have a common power source. Both should open or close in response to operation of the switch. You could have a bad switch or one of the motors could have failed

2001 Pontiac Montana rear power windows opened and now they are both not closeing. There is no fuse and I can't close my windows. Please help me.


Power for the rear quarter windows passes through the 10A PWR QTR VENT fuse in the fuse block. 12V is applied to the rearquarter window switch which controls the open and close operation of the windows. If the fuse checks OK, the window actuators and motors are all that's left

GENERAL PROCEDURES Rear Window Motor Initialization s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.
  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.

  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions.

I have a window problem first my passenger window(electric) started to stick then stopped working all together. then a week later my rear vent window stopped working then a month after that the other rear...


there are two circuit breaks for the windows... Chrysler calls them PTC's
additionally, the PTC's get their power from fuse #23 in the fuse box under the hood

Generally the PTC's do not fail, however, if a window is "binding" then that will cause the breaker to work extra hard and in the end will cause premature failure and/or the fuse to "blow"

Therefore check circuit breaker#8 and #9

SIDE WINDOW VENT WILL NOT CLOSE


The motor is probably bad, you can pull the end of the lever at the motor off and close the window then put it back on the motor to hold it closed.
