Question about Volvo XC70

2 Answers

I believe someone tried to jimmy a window in our XC70 and now none of the windows operate and neither does the sunroof. the owner's manual intructs me to let the car cycle (reboot?) because ther is no fuse or relay associated with the window opening mechanism. It does not work, I disconnected the battery as well, and the windows still don't budge. Help!!!

    Redhaze - the solution worked partially. All windows except the driver's side operate fully. the driver's side went down but now refuses to go back up. What could that be.

Could be the motor unplugged - damaged wire - or faulty master switch.
You will need to take the door panel off to assess the damage.

Where are the fuses foe the sunroof and windows?

Try the fuse- fuse in the kick pannel inside the car.. I believe it is the third fuse going towards the front of the car, bottom row. The fuse pannel I have labels it as GAUGE, I believe it was a red ten. This fuse controls both windows, sunroof, and the antenna.

2005 power window failurefo sport trac explorer

well lets start at the begining - if none of the windows are working take out your owners manual.
find the fuse and relay guide - look for the power window fuses, pull them out and check if they have been fused - like a light bulb burned out.
if so replace them with ones of the same ampage - the number printed on the fuse or ampage set in owners manual which ever is higher do NOT go over ampage in owners manual.
if fuses are ok look for the power windows relay - with engine off but key on have someone operate window switches and you listen and feel for relay clicking which means it is energizing.

Now with out any knowlege of how to use a volt ohm meter or understanding of DC electric it will be near impossable to instruct you on pulling the relays and testing them; test the drivers side window switch for power by taking the door panel off. testing the window motor for voltage going to it when the switch is in the up or down position and a common falure point in older cars the wires running from the door frame through to the door.
good luck

the driver side is the main source of power 4 the windows. you will need 2 replace the electrical board on the door for the windows. try running a wire from the battery to the fan on the positive. if the fan comes on check the relay. if not bad fan

What is wrong with passenger window 2004 volvo xc70

sometimes the window clips, or guides, can loosen. if you're not careful and keep operating the window, it could contact the window regulator arms and bend them. this will require window regulator replacement
