Question about 1987 Chrysler New Yorker
HI. There are several areas of concern here. I will list them below:
1. Power window control module(located on the drivers side door rest panel). You will need to remove the module and check all the wiring connections on the back of the device for separated connections are broken wire contacts. There may be connectivity issues at the location. If the other windows work, but the drivers side dose not, this will indicate that either the module has failed, or the driver side motor has failed.
2. Driver side door power window motor/regulator set up and linkage rail structure. You will need to remove the entire door panel to access these parts. The regulator and motor are two devices that work together to power the window glass up and down, when commanded by the control module. If the motor has experience some sort of circuit failure, it will not advance the regulator and rail structure up and down, as commanded. The motor can be tested for continuity with a multimeter. Use the two terminals for testing purposes. If the motor fails the test, replace it. I would also advise to check to be sure that the linkages are not jammed. Make sure that the structure is able to be manually moved without any resistance. Check all linking rails for cracks and missing parts. This is highly unlikely, but inspect the rail assembly just to be safe.
3. Related Fuse link. The power doors main circuit has a fuse that is basically a circuit protector. if this fuse burns out, it will kill the normal functions of the module. If all windows are not responding to the commands, check the fuse to be sure that it has not failed. Simply, replace the fuse, if so.

Hi my name is Allen!
There is a ground wire that breaks between the door and the body, its inside of the rubber protector. If you peel the rubber from the door side you will find the ground wire broken.
NOTE: do not try to repair the wire at the break, because it will break again because of it bending at that location.
REPAIR: remove the kick panel trim and run a new wire from the inside out to the break, this will repair it for a long time. You must solder and heatshrink the wires together to keep moisture out of the repairs.
For further assistance contact me at FixYa!

I'll try to help. It sounds like the drivers window motor or drivers window control shorted and killed the battery. If you want to fix it yourself you should take off the negative battery cable before taking off the drivers' door panel.
Then look at the backside of the drivers' window control switch and see if anything is melted. It could have melted the lock button too!
Some vehicles have an electronic menu in the dash or information center. This is where the optionable controls for "honking locks" and "flashing security lights" is programmed. You might have to reset the controls.
If you do not have these fancier features check your fuse panel for burn outs. If you do not want to do it yourself go to a glass shop or dealer.

SOURCE: power windows do not operate
Hi, the power wire coming through the door hinge is probably broken inside the insulation. Pull the boot open and check the larger wires for discontinuity. It might be easier to find the break if you try to work the windows while messing with the wires one at a time.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

The DDM contains four power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the two front windows have three positions UP, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only two positions, UP and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a Class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has two positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The two rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a Class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.
You need a scan tool to diagnose these systems
Power Window Inoperative - Driver Door
Did you perform the Door Systems Diagnostic System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Door Systems
Operate the driver power window in the UP and DOWN directions.
Does the driver power window operate properly?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3
