These cars a famous for bad switches but first make sure wires are connected good at the switch on drivers door, then look at the wiring coming into the driver door this wiring sometimes breaks a wire or two. this wiring is located in the center of the door where the hinges are, there a rubber boot covering them pop boot out one side at a time and slide back as far as it will go and check wires closely for any split in half then do the same othe the other end of the boot.

Are you checkn the FUSES ? If you can hear any click when press the switch, its possible that you have bad contact with the switch or wires loss.

Test it and tell us news.

I have a 1996 Audi A4 and the driver's side rear window does not go up or down. I have replaced the motor and still nothing. It stopped working on one day. There was no failing before it stoppe


defective window switch or broken wire, did you test the power to the window motor when you changed the motor?? start there, unplug the motor and test for power when you use the switch, then up by the switch test for power into, and coming out of the switch, if the switch gets power but no power coming out ten its the switch. if the switch has power coming out but not at motor,then its a broken wire.

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

Power windows: passenger window does not go up or down, checked the fuses under the steering wheel column on the driver side and the passenger side. switched the fuses from the side that doesn't work...


Switching Fuses proved nothing

Don't have a volt meter ?

Did you check out any of the window switches ?

If not the switch, then door panel comes off & you
test the motor

Power window drivers side doesn"t work


You will need to replace the window motor, it kinda like a starter motor when starting to go out will not have enough power, same with the window motor, brushes are worn.Also could blow a fuse, asking for to much voltage to work.

Wher is the power window relay for 1996 s-10 truck


Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.

Try checking the fuse for the power windows, if its good the motor that moves the window up and down located inside the door could be bad.

Power window not working


it sounds by the motor clicking that your power window motor is shot.....If you jump 12 volts to the terminals on the motor does it work?.................if it does you can at least get it up.......if you put the power to it and it goes down reverse the wires on the terminals and it will go up.But it sounds to me like you need a new one.
hope this helps!..............Good luck!

1996 honda civic lx passanger power window problem


I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!
