Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

1 Answer

I have a 1972 olds cutlass supreme convertible and recently the power windows will only work from the master switch on the driver door panel. The other three switches - passenger front and rears do not work. What might be the cause?

    Answer is acceptable, although I dso not know if it is the solution. I tried to continue the communication, but apparently it was only added as a comment in the block.

    I'm going to look around under the hood, but could you tell me where to look?

  • olds1972 Jun 02, 2010

    Can you direct me as to where it is located? At least the relative vicinity?

  • olds1972 Jun 07, 2010

    Sorry, but there is nothing under the hood related to fuses. I removed the 40 amp circuit breaker under the dash that pertains to power windows and all window switches ceased to function. I put it back in and the master panel continues to work.

    Some literature I read suggests other wiring points that may have come loose? Any hints regarding that?

    I did check the fuses in the block under the dash once before, and they all seemed good. I will give them closer scrutiny again. As for any fuses under the hood, I don;t know any exist. There is a main "relay" unit mounted on the center of the firewall near the top. Would it have anything to do with window power?

    There is a fuse box under the hood.. Trust me its there..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jun 03, 2010

    I am not quite sure exactly where ,, but its a black box,, with a lid that caps on,, no screws,, just lift all it will show up,, Check close to the battery..

1998 olds cutlass driver side window switches dont work except for the switch that controls the passenger side front door window that works but all others dont work, would that mean need a new switch or...

Do the individual door switches work their windows? If so, it would be the driver's side door switch, the master switch, that is bad.
The fact that one window works off the driver switch means that power for the windows is at least getting to the master switch, and that the ground for all power windows is good. If the other door switches work, it is just the master switch, not a wiring problem.

Power window module

We don't know why you changed the module, but the master switch in the driver's door is often the problem. Of course you could have a blown fuse too.
I would start there.

How do I remove the door panel on my 1996 Olds. Cutlass Suprene 2-door sedan??

If you have power windows and door locks, take a small flat-tip screw driver, and gently pry up the switches. Unplug them. If not power, The auto parts store have a window handle removal tool. Remove the handle. Then unscrew the door lock at the top right corner of the door. Unscrew the door handle. Screws are located under the handle. If you have the pull strap, remove the covers with a screw driver. covers are at both ends of the strap. The auto parts store also sells a door panel removal tool. put that between metal and plastic cover a gently pry. it will pop the clips loose. Take your time and be gentle. after popped loose. gently tap up from the bottom. this will get it to release the clip from the frame by the window. Hope this helps.

Power windows stopped working.

Likely a bad master switch (the main window switch located in the driver's door). All other switches seek ground through the master switch so the effect quite often is the master switch can cause loss of window power on other doors. Given that the driver's window has also now quit makes this switch even more suspect.
