Most cars have an over-ride switch to stop all those windows from working. to keep kids from opening them. make sure that is not on or maybe that switch is bad and causing this. it is unusual for all three to go bad at the same time. to check you will need to remove the door panels to gain access to the window motor. i would remove the connector to the motor and get 12v power to that motor to check. if the motors works then suspect the switch. there will be two prongs at the motor that the connector contacts. one is positve and one is negative. if you reverse the positive and negative connection it makes the motor work the opposite way. be careful not to accidentally ground the positive. this can cause problems. if you need more details please get back to me. I've done this many times and am happy to help. good luck

Is there a fuse for the passanger window in the 1997 chev camero that needs to be checked before replacing the motor. If so where is it?

The window circuits on your 1997 Chevrolet Camaro are not protected by a fuse. They are protected by a self-resetting circuit breaker. BOTH windows are protected by the same circuit breaker, so if the other window works, there is nothing wrong with the circuit breaker.

However, the REST of the circuits should be checked before going out and buying a window motor. Both the LEFT and the RIGHT door switches or any of the wiring in-between can cause the passenger window to not work.

My 2003 Cadillac Deville power windows are not working correctly. I noticed last week my rear passenger window switch didn't work, but could open and close with driver switch. Now, drivers rear and front...

Hi! You may want to start spraying contact cleaners on the control switches. If these switches are seldomly used this issues happens. Try it and see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Rear passenger power window will go down, but won't come up?

either the glass has become disconnected from the regulator or the regulator has failed. you can buy new dorman regulator for less than a hundred bucks on ebay, and paying a glass shop about 50 bucks will get it installed for you. in the event the glass is just disconnected, it will still cost about 50 bucks to have a glass shop take the door apart and fix it for you. SLs went out 10 years ago so most likely a failed regulator.

Rear window switchs wont work but Drivers works all windows,

This may be a problem with Ford Expedition in which a class action suit should help resolve. I also had a 2001 and a 1997 expedition which had the same problems. I traded the 1997 in for the 2001 and later bought a replacement arm operator for the rt passenger rear side. i did not get a chance to install due to a recent accident in which I totaled the vehicle--quick fix for me:)
