You've solved it yourself. The wires are on the verge of breaking and that's why it works when you move the wiring harness. Take it to a reputable Auto Electrician and he will repair it for you. Don't forget to get a quote of how much it is going to cost first. In fact you could get 3 quotes from different auto electricians and take your pick - after all YOU are the customer.
Good Luck

Power windows quit working ,all of them ,over night


Check the wiring harness on hinge side of driver door. The harness may have a protective rubber boot covering. Pull the boot back far enough to see wire colors. Voltage for power windows is a brown wire. Black wire is ground. Check them both, use a test lite.
Because the driver door is opened and closed so much, sometimes the wires break. There is also a power window circuit breaker.

Where are power switch for window control 03 Aztec


I would check the wiring harness going into the driver side door, on the hinge side. The wire harness probably has a protective rubber boot covering, see if you can move cover back so you can see wire colors. The yellow wire is voltage for power window master switch. Black wire is ground. The wire harness is flexed every time the driver door is opened or closed.

I looked at info for Pontiac aztek.

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.

Windows will not roll up or down


THERE CAN BE SEVERAL DIFFERENT ISSUES THAT WILL CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. 1. DID THEY ALL STOP WORKING AT THE SAME TIME? 2.IF THEY DID, I WOULD CHECK FOR A BROKEN WIRES IN THE WIRE HARNESS BETWEEN THE DRIVERS DOOR AND FENDER AREA. YOU CAN SEE THIS HARNESS WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. KEEP ONE FINGER ON THE WINDOW BUTTON GOING DOWN AND THE OTHER HAND ON THE WIRE HARNESS AND WIGGLE IT UP, DOWN, IN AND OUT. IF THE WINDOW MOVES THE HARNESS NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK TRY- 3. DEFECTIVE MASTER WINDOW SWITCH. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK TRY- 4. ASK THE DEALER IF THIS CAR HAS A GEM OR BODY CONTROL MODULE THAT HAS TO BE RELEARNED.

Power windows don't work on all 4 doors and power lock doesn't work on the driver door. 2004 jeep grand cherokee


On the driver side, the window/door lock module has the power lead either pulling away from the connection or has broke entirely. Another common cause is the wire harness between the door jam, this is the area that has a rubber boot covering the wires and from opening and closing the door, it creates a broken or loose connection over time. Open the driver side door, grab the rubber boot that the wires run thru, and move it around. Some times this will help create the connection and restore the power. If not, the door panel will need to be removed to inspect the wire connections.

Power windows do not work they would work sometimes if you opened the door in the right place


If the windows work by moving the door, there is a bad wirein the harness. You will have to remove the covering on the bundle going from the door post to the door and start searching. I don't know Kia wiring but power wires are usually red, pink, or orange. Start with those. Look for cracks, scorch marks or excess flexibility. Tape up the cracks and splice the others with connectors and heat shrink tube. Make sure your pull the wire harness so you can check the part that goes through the door and the door post.Holding the switch in the on position while you move individual wires could help determine which wire is the culprit,too. Plan on a couple of hours and happy hunting.

Drivers power window won't work. Is there a fuse?


If the driver's window doesn't work, but the other windows work, it wouldn't be a fues. Depending on how old the vehicle is the opening and shutting takes a toll on the harnesses. You might open the door and take you hand (while attempting to open the window) and jickle the wiring harness coming out of the door. If this works, you will need to take that harness apart and see which wire or wires are cracked. I would suggest soidering them rather than **** end connectors if this proves to be your problem. If not you will need to go into the door and test for power coming to the motor while engaging the switch...keep hands clear of all moving devices in door. Good luck.
