Check the wireing harness that goes from the door to the inside of the van,it will be covered with a rubber boot that you will likely have to cut to examine the wires.The problem is that after years of twisting everytime the door is opened and closed the wires will eventually break in two.Take of the rubber boot and then the cloth tape and look at each wire carefully and the repair all broken wires by using a splice type connector[they are called a b#tt connector but i can't use that word without it getting x'd out].

2000 dodge caravan fuse diagram.


If this an intermitent problem, couldn't be a fuse problem, I bet that this is a wires harnesses problem, some wire in bad condition or a window switch go to bad (can included the window motor in the inspection).

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it


The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

Problem with electric window passenger side peugeot 306 1998


Hi
Very common on the 306, the door wring from the inside of the door jar into the side of the dash board gets frayed and then the windows stop working or work intermitently, does the wiondo go up and down when the door is all the way open? try it and let me know.

Most likely it will be the wiring, please get back to me if you are unsure what I mean.

RR power window intermitantly works


You either have excessive dirt in the rubber channels that are slowing the window down, or, you have a bad window motor. Try spraying some 100% silicone spray into the tracks, beside the window, and raise/lower it. If that does not work, the positive coeffcient thermister in the motor is bad; ie replace the motor.

Power windows sticks. intermitantly stops working for awhile.


Have same problem passenger side window goes up, feels resistance, rolls down half way.  Had been able to hit door on driver side to get window to go up but now it just stays down.  Agree with gspotlight, hate this!  So not impressed by Infiniti.    Having the windows do this is as good as leaving me stranded.
