Hi if you have replaced the regulator and the switch then their can only be really to problems left you either have faulty wire connections or bad not working motor, now i would say as you have changed the reg and switch i would double check all the wires are fitted correctly and not loose or fallen out.

How ever the most likely cause of the problem is going to be with the motor itself i would go out and buy a new motor and fit it and see if it works it should do unless you have bad connections if after buying the new motor it still dont work then you can take the new motor back and you then know you have a bad connection.

if you have a multimeter you can check to see if you have any voltage at the motor, the chances are you have but the motor itself has packed up, their is nothing else it can be, try pressing the down button whilst somebody pushes the window down just to rule out it being stuck, but from my experiance the problem is going to be with the motor

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance

    hi they have seperate power sources the passenger has its own power feed, can you hear any clicking at all from the passenger side when you use the driver side switch, usually if both sides dont work its the regulater or motor at fault if it was just the passenger side then it would be the switch at fault but as the fault is with both sides then this points towards power not getting to motor which would mean regulator faulty, if you have no power coming from the reg then i would say you have got a faulty reg as you have replaced this and the switch so the only part left not working should be the motor but if you have got no power going to the motor then this points back to the regulator you know the switch is not at fault as both the driver and passenger side is not working then this rules out switch being the fault.

    the next this i would check is trace the wires through the door and check they are connected properly, buy the door hinge this is where wires can break as they tend to fray when door is opened and closed a lot so check here for any breaks, you need to check the continuity of the wires to ensure you have got no break in the wire. failing that it does point to the regualtor again so double check if you have power at motor or not if its not getting to the motor then its either damages wire or reg faulty their isnt much else it can be, double check all wires then send the reg you just bought back and say its faulty it cant be much else

    I found I do have power at the window motor connection. I was not testing properly. Taking "new regulator out" and asking for a replacement. Thanks again.

  • paul proctor Aug 24, 2010

    if you have power at the motor but the motors not moving then its this that needs replacing the motor is the last part in the circuit so if you have power coming from the regulator and power at the motor but if the motor is not turning then its the motor that needs replacing so i would send the new parts back and replace the motor.

    let me know if you think any different

2003 gmc envoy Windows fuse


Are all windows not working ? Two separate circuit breakers left & right . Both in rear fuse box . Fuse Block - Rear Beneath the left rear seat
Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from body to doors.
Do you know about electronic control modules ?
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger door module (PDM)


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
LR power window switch


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)


The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 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 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 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 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 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.

Where is the power window relay located in a 2002 mercury villager?


Principles of Operation
The driver power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the master window/door lock/unlock switch (and its integrated "auto down" module). Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The driver power window regulator motor is a reversible motor that is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The passenger power window regulator motor is controlled directly by the passenger power window switch and can also be controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. Power is supplied to the power window relay and the master window/door lock/unlock switch, and the passenger power window switch when the SEC/timer module grounds the coil side of the power window relay. The SEC/timer module will ground this relay when the ignition is in the ON position and will remain energized for approximately 15 minutes or until the driver or passenger door is opened.
The passenger power window regulator motor is a reversible motor, which is operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to lower the window, and then reversing polarity on those leads to raise the window.
The power rear quarter glass is also directly controlled by the master window/door lock/unlock switch. The power rear quarter glass power latches also utilize reversible motors. The power rear quarter glass power latches are operated by applying power and ground to the motor leads to open the window, and then reversing polarity on those same leads to close the window.

Do you know what electronic control modules are ?
Power Windows System Components
The following components are used to control the power windows:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Front Door Module (PDM)
• LH Rear Door Module (LRDM)
• RH Rear Door Module (RRDM)
• Driver Door Switch Assembly (DDSA)
• RH Front Power Window Switch
• LH Rear Power Window Switch
• RH Rear Power Window Switch
• LH Front Power Window Motor
• RH Front Power Window Motor
• LH Rear Power Window Motor
• RH Rear Power Window Motor
• PWR WDO 30 Amp Circuit Breaker
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door power window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally on its associated door. The driver door power window can only be operated from the driver door window switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA).
When the driver door module (DDM) receives a window switch request from the DDSA, the DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation to occur. If the status information is correct, the DDM, either supplies power and ground to its associated window motor, or, if the request is for one of the passenger windows, sends a command via the power door serial data circuit to the passenger door module (PDM, LRDM, or RRDM) controlling the window. The passenger door module (PDM, LRDM, or RRDM) controlling the window then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.
When one of the local window switches mounted on one of the passenger doors is operated, the associated door module examines the request and checks to see if there are any messages from the DDM prohibiting the movement. If conditions are correct, and no prohibitive messages have been received from the DDM, the associated door module then supplies power and ground to its associated window motor to move the window as requested.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to diagnose this . Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ? DTC B3377, B3382, B3387, B3392, B3397, B3452, B3457, B3462, B3467, B3472, B3477, B3482, B3517, or B3522.
Hooking up a factory scan tool checking codes and seeing if the door modules communicate .

I need to replace my passenger sideview mirror for a 2003 Pontiac Aztek. How much should this cost to replace?


I just purchased the window at a scrapyard for 86.00 ... upon trying to install I found my window regulator had broken also! This is the peice that holds ur window to the electric motor to roll up and down. The regulators come with the whole motor assembly and aren't sold seperately... costing me another 107.00 plus tax .
