Ive installed alot of after market stereo equipment in these types of vehicles, usually to get to the switches you have to remove the door panel, and unscrew the two retaining screws that hold the switches in place, disconnect the wire bundle from the switches, press the retaining tabs on the side of each switch and push them out of the holder. As far as the cover that covers the switches it usually just pops off as it is being held in place with a positive retention spring tab. Before attemping to push out make sure there arent any retaining screws that hold the switch cover in place. Hope this helps.

All power windows not working 2008 saturn outlook ?

Which of these does your vehicle have ?
Power Windows Description and Operation (W/O AXC/AXE)
Power Windows Description and Operation (RPO AXC/AXE)

Do you know what a RPO code is ?

Need to know which one because one is basic an the other has electronic modules involved , driver door module , BCM - body control module , passanger door module etc..... Both power window circuit's use a circuit breaker an not a fuse . Would not think that being the problem . Broken wire's inside the flex boot from the body to the door maybe.

Power Windows Malfunction (AXC/AXE)

The front and rear power windows are controlled by the driver door module (DDM) and front passenger door module (PDM). The DDM and PDM each contain power window switches that are integrated into the module. The DDM contains the master power window switches that control all power window operations. The power window switch contained in the PDM controls the front passenger window operation only.
When the driver power window switch is activated to a desired position, the DDM examines the request and checks for messages from other vehicle control modules prohibiting window movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the DDM will send a serial data message to the driver door window motor to move the window to the desired position.
When the DDM receives a request to operate the right side passenger windows from the master switch, a serial data message is sent to the PDM. The PDM examines the request and checks for messages from other vehicle control modules prohibiting the window movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the PDM will send a serial data message to the appropriate window motor to move the window as requested.
When the DDM receives a request to operate a rear window from the master switch, a serial data message is sent to the BCM. The BCM examines the request and checks for messages from other vehicle control modules prohibiting the window movement. If no prohibitive messages have been received, the BCM will send a serial data message to the appropriate rear window switch which will command the window motor as requested.

Power Windows Malfunction (Except AXC/AXE)
Circuit/System Description
The power window system will operate any time the ignition is in the ACC or RUN position. The power window system will also operate whenever the body control module (BCM) is in the retained accessory power (RAP) mode. The driver power window switch contains individual window switches for each of the power windows. All windows may be controlled up and down from the driver master control. The individual passenger power window switches will only control the up and down operation of their respective power window.
Each power window contains a reversible power window motor. The direction the window travels is dependent upon the polarity of the supply voltage. By reversing polarity of the supply voltage the window motor will move up or down. Each power window motor is internally circuit breaker protected.
Battery voltage is supplied to each power window switch through the accessory voltage supply circuit. The power window switch also receives a constant ground source. The power window motor control circuits are connected to ground through the normally closed up and down contacts of the power window switch. When the power switch is placed in the down position, the power window motor down control circuit is switched to 12 volts and is applied to the down side of the power window motor. Since the other side of the power motor is connected to ground through the normally closed contacts of the up switch, the window travels down. By placing the power window switch in the up position, the polarity of the power window motor is reversed and the window travels up.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?

Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

How to troubleshoot power window problems

Easy its probably the plastic tread that the window motor moves to raise or lower your window or its the window thread is also inside the door. Only way to determine it is move door panel screws, handles, switches then pry the clips out to remove panel. you can see what is wrong/broke and fix.

Hi Mike i have a 2001 olds aurora with both rear doors and windows out of commission. Seems like neither is getting any power the windows don't go up or down and my keyless remote will not unlock or...

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

2003 F250 Power Windows won't work

check fuses 35 & 41 (10 amp, red).
it also shows an accesory delay relay in the fuse panel.
And fuse 601? 30 amp.

make sure you don't have lock-out on driver switch panel activated.

Power Window System
Features and Operation
NOTE: The accessory delay feature will allow power window operation up to 10 minutes after the ignition is off or until a door is opened.
If equipped with power windows, the window control switch (14529):
  • will operate the power windows only when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
  • is located on each front door trim panel, and Crew Cab and Excursion rear door trim panel.
  • may be used to raise or lower the driver side, passenger side and rear windows from the LF control on the driver side, or the passenger window from the passenger switch.
  • includes a one-touch down (OTD) feature for the driver door window.
  • can partially lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is depressed half way (first detent).
  • will completely lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is fully depressed and then released (second detent).
Power Window System — Modes of Operation
There are two modes of operation for the power window system.
Manual Mode
When the LH window control switch is pressed to the first down position, the window will move down until one of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is no longer in the first down position.
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the OTD position, causing the windows to enter auto mode.
Auto Mode
Auto mode provides the OTD feature. The OTD feature is activated when the LH window control switch, for the LH window, is pressed to the second down position.
Auto mode will be terminated when any of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The LH window control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the DOWN position (first detent) or OTD position (second detent).
  • Note: Delayed accessory feature must be active.
The OTD feature is controlled by the window control switch.

Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Circuitry.
  • LF window control switch.
  • Accessory delay relay.

Driver side window is off track and stuck about 75% closed

If your power window motor is not moving up or down at all inside the door panel, you will need a new motor.
If your window is stuck and will not move, it is the motor - it is bad.
If your window falls down into the door panel, the window is off track.
Replacing a window motor is an easy fix, get another one from an auto parts store and replace it.
Good luck!
