Have you checked for voltage at the switch, if so try jumping the connectors in the switch harness , could be the motor itself, so run continuity checks on the wires first

Too, you can always bring power and ground to the motor. Typically, it is the moving parts that have the issue, in this case, most likely the motor itslef. If you apply power and ground one way, a motor will go one way. Apply the other way, and it will go the other way.
My favorite way of testing is with my thermistor ( fused jumper ).
The thermistor, with alligator clips, will get hot with a short or high current draw, and be ok. I would recommend that you have at least a fused jumper ( alligator clipped wires and same rated fuse that is in the circuit - typically no higher than 20 amps ) ( without fused wire test, you can fry your wires ) ( simple really, just the power coming from the battery with one wire, make sure to run it through a fuse firts, then to one side of the motor ) This bypasses all items, and I predict you will still have issue going up or down, so then that should narrow it down to most likely a motor.

Why doesn't my 2000 chevy blazer power windows and door locks and remote mirror doesnt work. Power window on passenger side does work


well, the first thing is to check the fuses and or relay for power windows.should be listed in your owners manual. if ok, then remove switch from drivers side window and check for power. if power to the switch then use a jumper wire from power side to motor side of switch. if window works then its the switch causing the problem. Good-day!

The windows on my crv wont work


at all stations?
all fuses, in both boxes. (did you read the operators guide to find them,
some cars have a circuit break (thermal) for windows,
and is located in the fuse box.
all this info is at alldata.com
ill look. ill respond , as you are a pro DIY person, can read schematics. if not , its just a guessing game.
IT IS a FUSE, not a breaker. but each motor in door has CB.
UNDER HOOD 40am Fuse #13
then fuse 23 underdash and fuse 8 same.
then the relay.same place.
and the relay is controlled by, master station (drivers)
the driver location doesnt need the relay to work.
the relay feeds power to all other window controls
so the master station is unique.
log in to alldata.com and see the pages on power windows.
here are some tid bits.
battery pull warning

Resetting the power window control unit is required after performing the following procedures: Disconnecting the battery, Removing the No. 6 (7.5 A) and/or the No. 23 (20 A) fuses from the under-dash fuse/relay box or disconnecting the driver's door wire harness.
and
window relearn/reset.
Control Unit Reset
  1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
  2. Move the driver's window all the way down by holding the driver's switch firmly down; when the window reaches the bottom, hold the driver's window switch firmly down for 2 seconds.
  3. Move the driver's window all the way up by holding the driver's switch firmly up; when the window reaches the top, hold the driver's window switch firmly up for 2 seconds.
  4. If the window does not work in AUTO, turn the ignition switch OFF and repeat the procedure.
  5. Check the window and power door lock operations

Driver side window quit working


Go in this order if you find a fault fix & retest.. Check fuses, check possible relay, check power & ground to switch, attempt to supply power to motor - if it doesnt work replace motor, if it does trace through the previous steps

All power windows and sunroof will not budge suddenly on neither the drivers master switch or any of the door window switches. Power locks DO work though. I replaced all 10 and 15 amp fuses in fuse box,...


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

Check the master window control panel on the driver's door. There is probably a lockout switch. It may have a window outline on one end and the same outline with an "X" over it on the other. Press the outline without the "X" and all your windows should work again. As silly as that sounds, a lot people hit that switch without knowing it. Also, if that switch(lockout) is faulty, none of the windows will work. That happens A LOT!!

1998 toyota camry driver side window switch will not run any windows but lock button still works


Hi,
Check first the power window fuse, located in the fuse box, if blown, replace it with the same amperage. If it still don't work, the problem will be the power window switch module. The switch is electronic and when it doesn't work, you have to replace it.
Better go to your dealer and let them assess that switch, they would try the new one to confirm if the switch is to be replace or not. that switch usually breaks down when caught in the rain or just got dirty.
Hope that solves your problem.
Thanks for using Fixya!

Driver side power window doesnt work


Its possible, check underhood fuse box, the position 6, 60AMP for Power Windows

Other details can find in the Ford-Explorer-Owners-Manual (page 187 and next)

If the fuse is OK, take off the trim panel to check the windows motor, windows switch and wires.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Windows wont go down or up


Check the switches for a clicking sound if you hear a clicking sound then the switches are fine. Does the driver side switch work for the windows? Check it for the click sound. Make sure it isnt a blown fuse. If you have replaced the fuse and you dont hear clicking sound it might be the switches and you can find them at a junk yard. If you have tried all these things and it still doesnt work you might need new window regulators and/or window motors or it might be a wiring problem.
