Im assumed the regulator inspected and not gummed up and the wire is not off track or looks like a bird nest; motors are good and tested along with the main driver doors switch, fuse and relay check out, are you getting power to the dash light when the key ignition is turn on? if yes, than you have a short somewhere, if no, check ignitions switch, its also work like a master switch. sometime ignition switch get worned and loose its contact. If there is power to the dash than you going to have to narrow it down. when the key is on position, check using a volt meter to see if you getting any power to the main switch if not that you problems. if you do than you will need to test the main/master switch to see if its sending any power to the regulator by, holding the master driver window down and test the power line to the front door regulator to see if there any power coming from the master switch. if yes than it a motor to the regulator is faulty, its not common for all motor to fail at the same time. hope that help a bit

I have a 1999 Ford F250 four door power stroke 7.3. All four power windows quit working at the same time. Motors and regulators are good but we have no power to the switches.

The master window switch could be the cause body control module could be the cause or wiring in the circuits two either master switch or body control module. A scan tool will be the easiest way to test these .

LR window won't go up,motor been changed & switched been tested with other switch which tested good.Is there a fuse for this window.

you need to test at drivers door master switch with a test light or volt meter to see if switch is sending voltage to that wire if switch is working and no voltage at door connector,slit open the rubber boot for that door and ck for broken wire in that area this is a prone area that flexes the wire when opening and closing the door causing wire to break

Rear window will not go down

This is a common problem window regulator rusts badly and binds, they need to be replace, also on cold freezing days window will stay up and dislodge from regulator this happens very random on summer people driving around and window will stay put, have you try pushing down on yours? if window tabs aren't broken a glass shop will re-attach (glue it back) a dealer wont fix it they replace it, but if you need a regulator have window runs get replace to. good luck

Power windows stopped working no warnings

It's probably gonna be your power window regulator.

2004 chevy malibu - all four power windows do not work?

We do not have access to any data, such as wiring diagrams

Windows usually only have a fuse & a circuit breaker

Since you have lost 3 or 4 at once, I would guess you do have
a bad master window switch.

The clicking on the driver side, could be another issue,such as
a broken window regulator

All three windows,except for the drivers window, suddenly stopped working. What can cause this?? Seems certain GM cars have a epidemic prblem with window regulators.

Check all fuses and relays, if they are all good then check the master power control switch inside the drivers door. The wiring harness could of worked lose or the switch is defective.

Is there a fuse for the drivers side window? the window wont go down. all other windows work

Hi there,

All power windows are controlled by the same fuse.

Therefore, the most logical problem will lie either with the driver's window 'switch' or the driver's window regulator 'motor'.

If you know how to remove the internal door panel to gain access to the 2-wire connector on the regulator motor, undo the connector and using suitable jumper wires, connect each plug wire to a spare 12v battery - this should operate the motor. Then, reverse the wires on the battery and the regulator motor should move the opposite way.

If the motor operates "continuously" in both directions when connected directly to battery power, then the fault lies in the driver's master window switch.

If the motor fails to move "continuously" (ie it stops part way) in either direction, then the motor on the window regulator is faulty and should be replaced with a known good motor.

All power windows stopped working on 2004 Dodge Stratus at the same time, what is the problem?

First check all of your fuses to make sure that they are good and also check the power window relay or power window circuit breaker. If they are all good the most likely cause will be the master window switch that is located on the drivers front door. If you had a schematics you could check to see if you are getting power feed into the master window switch. You should also check for proper ground connections. Hope this helps.
