That is a good sign that the window motors are going bad.A trick you can do is take the door panel off the one that doesn't work and you will see the window motor, Get lie a small hammer and tap on the motor while holding the switch up or down to see if it moves. they have a bad habit of sticking. if it does move then you will need motors.

Good Luck, And I hope this helps. Allen

Power windows, ac, and clock don't work


I don't see how the engine overheating could have been involved since all three components are on different circuits.
Unless something happened to a power source under the hood such as a fuseable link wire.
You will need a book to find the wiring diagrams to test the circuits.
Sometimes you can get the diagrams from the online auto parts stores such as auto zone.

I have a 2003 dodge neon..and the rear defroster doesn't work..it has a button for it..and it just shuts off and back windshield doesn't clear at all...even if I keep turning it back on it...


Yeah, I'd think it would have lines, too, unless some new way of doing it that I'm not aware of. Maybe the rear window was replaced with a window without the defrost option. There should be a small two wire connector coming out of the back shelf near lower driver's side of rear window. That would be the defrost connector to the window lines (that aren't there,lol).
Well, good luck with that! I think there are aftermarket kits for rear window defrost, though.

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

SECTION 501-11: Glass, Frames and Mechanisms 2001 Explorer Sport/Sport-Trac Workshop Manual
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. Turn the ignition to the OFF 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.

nitescot, What you can try is to open up the rubber boot running from the body of the vehicle to the door. The constant opening and closing of the door will sometimes cause the wires inside the boot to break. This is a common problem when it comes to power windows. Open the boot with a knife being careful not to damage the wires inside. Look for any broken wires. Repair as necessary. Good luck with this.

Your rear turn signal flashes fast because the front is not working. Most likely you have a burnt out bulb in the front. If your A/C compressor can be turned over by hand and doesn't lock up or make any clanking sounds it's probably alright. The compressor will not run if the system is low on refrigerant. If you're having problems with the A/C and heater controls, that would be the first ting to repair. It doesn't sound at all like any electrical problems.

Rear defogger doesn't work even though dash lite works


Couple of things to check - first look for any scratches through lines, a couple of scratches will not let power run from side to side. The other is -> with a test light or voltage meter -> put (+)cable of meter/light to small electrical connector that attached to your window and (-) cable to a good ground (metal) light will come on/meter should read voltage there.
