It's more then likely the motor on the windows if they're not going down at all. Now if they go down and back up again sometimes then it could just be that you need to replace the regulator. Either way, you can find good parts for your car at Rockauto.com that are inexpensive so you can avoid paying more then necessary at the auto shop.

Need to know how to fix the windows in the stereo in my 1996 Lincoln Continental.all the fuses are fine, I don't know what to do next


None of the windows work ? You say fuses are good , which fuses ? Did you pull them all out an look at them ? Did you check for power - battery voltage at the window switches ? There is a driver door module involved !
  • Power Windows Completely Inoperative
  • Supply open or shorted.
  • Ground open.
  • Window regulator control switch inoperative.
  • Circuits open or shorted.
  • Window regulator electric drive inoperative.
  • Driver door module.
  • PERFORM driver door module self test. Service DTCs. If no DTCs are retrieved, GO to Pinpoint Test C .
If you don't know electrical circuit testing suggest you take to a AES certified repair shop ! If you plan to do this anyway your going to need a wiring diagram , wiring harness layout , volt ohm meter !

Power windows not working


1 does the led's light up on the master window switch [drivers side] 2 when you rocker the drivers side down can you hear a audio click down under the steering wheel. the i/p fuse panel is down there where you rest your left foot.3 power is from battery saver relay to master ins. relay to one touch window relay. this is the one you should hear click. the back side of this fuse panel calls out the locations down there. the owners manule also helps some.4. if you take the interior door cover off remove the screw on extenstion on door lock and one screw under plastic button where you pull the door shut.arm rest support bracket. the rest is held in place with snap in plastic buttons [christmas trees like]. the door latch unlock should slide out of the opening when you slide it froward.there are 4 male/female electrical connections, 2 to the master door switch.one to the power/heated mirror, 1 to power locks. 5. don't unsnap them yet.with a test light you can check for battery voltage. on the master door switch the blue/black tracer wire should be hot[12 volt dc]. at all times. put one end in the backside and the other to a bolt or rivet on the door. the light should come on.next with one end on the blue/black tracer and one on white/black tracer rocker driver side up/down switch, the light should come on.there are only 13 wires on the master window switch 2black wires are ground, 2blue/black tracer[hot] 1 red/blue tracer should be [hot] when you unlock the window lock rocker switch.know the passanger and back seat switches should work. switch it to lock and they should only work from the driver side master switch.the 8 wires left are 2 for each window one up one down.try this with a friend it makes it easyer. good luck doug.

Hi,
The problem would be the power window switch assembly! That switch controls the power to ur window motors! If u are a tinkering man, try to borrow from any garage/friend w/ the same window switch and test it!
Or
Go to ur service center and have them check it for free... they always try the new switch... and you will know the main prob!

The drivers side electrical power window switch does not move drivers window up or down can be window intermittantly. all other window switches work properly.is there a fuse? I have replaced the whole...


if it works intermittanly then its not the fuse. In my opinion its 1 of 3 things. Either first the power connector going from the fuse to the window has a loose connection. 2 the switch itself has failed thus working intermittanly. 3 the motor is failing on the window. This should be the first 3 places you check but if you want to check the fuse its located in the high current fuse box in the engine compartment. An is D and is a 40a fuse. If you need further assistance please let me know, Thanks, Midwest-tek

BMW X5 Original Stuck Window


hi there

there are three things that would cause this problem

1. the window motor is bad
2. the fuse that controls the window is blown

3. most common is the window switch its self

this is the most common cause
if the motor was going out it would make a noise or go down very slow but going down is easier then up so thats what makes me think switch or fuse

I recently bought a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire SE for my grand daughter as a High School graduation gift. Now the power windows won't go up or down. What could cause this problem? Hoping it is something simple...


This is One with the Power Window SWITCH in the CENTER Console they Often Get Liquids SPILLED on them Causing them to Fail, I Would First Check for 12volts @ the Switch with KEY ON. With a Sure 12volts Going IN the Switch Check for 12 Volt going OUT, If Switch IS BAD there Will be NO 12volts Coming OUT With this Go on to Switch Replacement


REMOVAL PROCEDURE
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool in order to remove the power window switch bezel (1) from the console.
  2. Remove the electrical connection from the power window switch (2).
  3. With a flat-bladed tool release the power window switch (2) tabs, and remove the switch from the power window bezel (1) retainers.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE \

  1. Install the power window switch (2) into the power window switch bezel (1) until fully seated.
  2. Connect the electrical connector to the power window switch (2).
  3. Install the power window switch bezel (1) to the floor console.
((((>>>All of this is Assuming that All FUSES Related to And RELAYS Related to Windows Have Been Deemed GOOD & Funktional<<<<)))

My passenger front window rolled down now it will not go back up do not hear any sound from the motor in the door trying to check the fuse but i do not know which fuse it is i know where my fuse block is...


Does the switch work the other windows? if not the switch is broken. Although it may just be the window in question with a faulty switch
If the motor was broken theres usually (not always) noise involved.
Pry out the switch and use an electric meter to test it.
The fuse will normally control more than 1 window, so if its blown, they will all not work.
be careful trying to raise the glass again.
Hope that helps.
