SOURCE: i have a 2001 rodeo. the power windows all work

First check your fuse panel. Other than that...Perhaps moisture has gotten in the door panel and messed with the connection. I would take the panel off and investigate..make sure everything is plugged in.

SOURCE: 2006 I-280. Battery died, replaced the battery

I'll try to help. It sounds like the drivers window motor or drivers window control shorted and killed the battery. If you want to fix it yourself you should take off the negative battery cable before taking off the drivers' door panel.

Then look at the backside of the drivers' window control switch and see if anything is melted. It could have melted the lock button too!

Some vehicles have an electronic menu in the dash or information center. This is where the optionable controls for "honking locks" and "flashing security lights" is programmed. You might have to reset the controls.

If you do not have these fancier features check your fuse panel for burn outs. If you do not want to do it yourself go to a glass shop or dealer.

How do i fix the driver side window switch

The thing to do first is have the vehicle hooked up to a professional grade scan tool an have it checked for DTC'S in the driver door module , an to see if the scan tool will talk with the module !
Then if no codes are present check for battery power an good grounds at the module ! You have to take the door panel off the door to get at the module . I have one of these modules out in my tool box , I got it at the auto salvage yard . $10.00
In order to control window operations, as well as other door functions, door modules must be powered up. Battery voltage is supplied by the rear fuse block, through separate circuits, to each door module. Each door module is separately grounded through a ground stake. Additionally, the door modules use these power and ground supplies to provide voltage and ground to their associated window switch, and to provide voltage and ground for door lock operations. The front door modules also use these power and ground supplies to power the window express up sensors, and for outside rearview mirror operation .

96 blazer power windows dont work l can make them go up n down with a power probe the whole drivers door is a positive ground ??

Grounds are negative

Body is ground side of electrical system

Only the wires in a vehicle are positive, in reference
to ground or non wired side,IF you talking about measuring

Current is opposite
Electrons flow neg to pos

Your Spark Plugs (Spark- jumps) from the ground strap to the
center electrode (current flow)

What your saying is your putting battery voltage directly to or at
a switch terminal & the window motor is good,but not the switching
or wiring side of circuit

Would be nice to have the factory wiring book ,wouldn't it

I never walk to any vehicle without one, if I have a volt meter in
my hand for any reason

What else would cause the power windows to not work in a 2000 buick century other than the fuse and the switch

I have the same problem try this pull the swith out of the door panel. without disconecting on the bottom side of the connector i ran a long piece of wire from the neg batt terminal to the black wire the windows worked a broken or damaged ground seems to be common.the driver door i pull out the locking clip on the connector wich gave me better access to the black wire

All windows except the driver's side are not working.

First, if the driver's window is working, there is no need to waste your time looking for fuses. ALL of the windows are powered by the SAME fuse.

The first thing I recommend checking is the window "lock" switch on the master switch. If it is in the "lock" position, none of the other windows will work (it is designed to do that)

Other than that, you need to check for power and ground at all of the other door switches. The BLUE/BLACK wire at each of the switches should have battery voltage anytime the ignition switch is in the ON position. If they do not, the wire is broken between the splice near the driver's door and the right front door. Both the RED and the GREEN wires at each switch should have continuity to ground anytime the master switch is at rest with the "lock" switch in the unlock position (the lock switch breaks these grounds to "lock" the windows and prevent them from being operated).

I have a 1992 Camry, and suddenly none of the power windows or locks would work. I removed all three relays behind the fuse block (driver's side L kick panel) and swapped them around, disconnected and...

The driver door switch are thermistor and on hot days or deserts they fail use these it mostly the relay the time from 0 volt to battery is 0.2 seconds the relay is the whole power door control relaycansmo_16.gifcansmo_17.gifcansmo_18.gifcansmo_19.gif

I own a 2003 f-150 heritage edition The windows worked just fine this morning I go to role them up tonight they will not work. I checked every fuse none bad. They light up and locks and power mirror...

Check the power to the power window switch on the driver's side.

Std & SuperCab Engine compartment fuse panel, Fuse # 110 -> Accessory delay relay -> Light Blue w/ Black stripe wire.

If you do not have power at the light blue w/ black stripe wire with the key in the accy or run positions, next would be to pull the accessory delay relay from the cab fuse panel, and bench test it to make sure when power & ground are connected to the coil, that the normally open terminals close. Easy test, power & ground to terminal 85 & 86, ohm meter on terminals 30 & 87.


If the accessory delay relay bench tests good, check for continuity on terminal 87 to the light blue w/ black stripe wire at the window switch.
Another easy route is to install a jumper in the relay socket ( with the relay removed ) as shown in the diagram above, red line. This should have power at the power windows regardless of the key position. If not, the fuse is not good or the wire is broken, most likely in the rubber boot from the a pillar to the driver's door.

I have a 98 Windstar none of the power windows work. Door locks work. I checked fuses I have cleaned the switch contacts if i put power to motor it works.

OK, so looking at this logically, it would make sense that the window motors are not getting power....If the fuses are good, then where is the power failure?
Firs of all, the main power for the window motors comes from a 30 Amp circuit breaker in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box....not a fuse. This supplies power to the Delayed Accessory Relay located in the Instrument Panel Fuse Block, which in turn provides the power to the driver's door master window switch.
If I were working on this vehicle, I would check for battery voltage at connector Pin #6 (Blue/Black wire) at the driver's door master switch. If there is no power there, then I would check for power at the relay terminals. With the key in the RUN position there should be 2 of the Delayed Accessory Relay pins with battery voltage. If one of these is missing, then you will have to look toward the circuit breaker and the battery. (There is also the Generic Electronic Module and the Battery-Saver Relay involved in this.)

If there is power on two pins of the Delayed Accessory Relay , then the most likely cause of your problem would be that the Blue/Black wire is broken inside the umbilical where it goes between the body and the door.

If there is power at the Blue/Black wire at the driver's door master switch, then your problem is probably ground-related. The solid Black wire in pin #7 at the driver's door switch goes through the umbilical to ground # G202, which is located at the left side kick panel area under the dash. This wire could likely be broken inside the umbilical also.

1991 S-10 Chev Blazer Sport: All dash lights went out but fuse is good. The speeddometer would come and go then for months it worked, then today the whole dashlights went black. A short?

A short circuit is when any positive wiring touches any metal or bare wire that is grounded (to Neg Battery terminal). this would normally blow a fuse, and might burn some wires and give a burning pungent smell and maybe a little white smoke A Broken/OPEN circuit is when a wire is disconnected, wire broke or corroded so the wire doesn't make good contact. The instrumental panel is supposed to be grounded to the body/ Neg terminal on battery. a corroded ground wire could cause this. electricity has to complete a full circuit any disruption (fuses in Pos Wiring or any break of circuit in neg side wiring, did you ohm check fuse or a contuinity check, some times a bad fuse looks good to the eye . the dimmer switch could be bad, it's a cheap easy fix. do you or any previous owner live near the ocean, salt water causes a lot of corrosion problems in ground connections and dimmer switches . verify fuse good again as described , because you described a intermittent problem its probably the dimmer because a blown fuse can't repair it'self, but a corroded or wornout DIMMER SWITCH WILL MOST DEFINATELY, INTERMITTENTLY make a good connection causing the lights to work or fail spazmotically, so it is the most likely culprit.
