If all the windows does not work it might be the power window fuse. If it is only one of the windows that does not work, try to swop the switches, if that does not work it might be the window motor that packed up

Rear left power window in not working with driver's switch(main switch) and not even with left rear switch(automatically), manually working with left rear window switch, can any one help me out with t

if your sw at the window works and the main one won't then the wire between must be bad. Test the wire for continuity between the switches. probably should disconnect the wire from the switches before doing this.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?

Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

No power sometimes it works drivers door electric windows

what you can do to save some money.
first check if you can open and close the windows from each door using the contacts situated on the respective door.
If yes, than you can do as I did.
Take the main power windows switch out from the driver windows. Try to spray inside of the contact some WD40 and play with the buttons for a while.
Usually there is a lot of dirt and corrosion, and contacts are not working properly.
So you can clean the main switch using wd40 and it might work.On mine worked with no problem. Now I have all the windows working from the drivers switch.
good luck.

Have you tried replacing the master window switch? Just because the other windows work doesnt mean that switch for that window is good.

The main switch is controled by the drivers door main unit.....i had to use a forward force on my windows switch for it to replaced the whole unit, you could find those on ebay cheap if local auto parts is expensive

Power windows and driversdoor powerlock will not work. the other 3 doorlocks work. whats wrong?

Probably bad master window switch in driver front door. Your description is vaque. If driver front door switch doesnt operate the other windows, but they all work from each of their switches, than start with the driver front door master switch. May be worth your time to check wiring in door jam before buying the switch.

Rear passenger window is stuck with about a quarter to half inch open. Will not go up or down.

First remove the paneling (of the door) apply electricity to the motor, it doesnt matter to witch side as they both will carry power from one time to another, if that works, try checking the main switch on the driver side door, if you can get a friend to loan you his while you check or you might have to buy one. Its either the main switch or the passengers side switch if the window goes up when direct juice is applied to it.

The windows in my mitubishi galant wont go up and i checked the fuses and none were broke

it may be your switch , if driver window , take the switch from another window and see if it works, if so, repalce the switch , if not driver window try the window from mail panel as well as the door it is on, if it doesnt work from either button , it is probably your window motor or regulator .If it works from the main driver console but not from the door itself, it is switch.

Elantra power windows work from door switches but fail from main

It was very srange, but all the contacts inside the switches of the main power window console (mounted in driver's door) were covered with soot.
I have disassembled the switch and cleaned the contacts. All functions well now.
The problem occured on a car that is used very rarely, that was most probably the reason of the sudden failure of the system.
Replacement of the main power windows switch would do the same but I have saved the expense this time. Hope the repair will last until I will sell the car.
