Try fuse's first. If all is good the most common problem is the rubber boot between the drivers door and the door post which has the wires running through it, cut it open with a razor blade and take it out. You will find broken wires there. Disconnect the battery , solder the broken wires together matching the proper colours together. tape them all up one by one and then all together. Reconnect battery and try windows now. Good luck hope this helps.

All - driver - passenger - front an back ? Look for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door ,driver side !

Power Windows Operation
Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The DDM receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. 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.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.
Windows Power and Ground
The windows are powered by discreet power and ground circuits. These circuits are in the same dedicated connector as the window motor drive circuits.

PWR/WDO 30 amp circuit breaker located in the rear fuse box ,DRVMDL fuse 10amp located in the same rear fuse box . This power the driver door module (computer )

The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door. The driver door module (DDM) is the master control for the door lock system but the rear integration module (RIM) contains the program that determines when the lock functions are permitted.
The exterior key cylinders are wired to either the DDM or the passenger door module (PDM), depending on the location of the key cylinder. The interior lock switches are wired to the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) and the PDM. The DDSA and the PDM send the lock switch requests to the DDM over the simple bus interface (SBI) serial data circuit. The DDM then sends the lock requests to the RIM over the Class 2 serial data circuits.
The door lock operation modes are controlled by the rear integration module (RIM). The RIM examines the requested function from the DDM, or the remote function actuator (RFA), as well as the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The RIM determines if a locking function is permitted, and commands the DDM to perform the function permitted. The DDM then sends commands to the rest of the door modules via the SBI to implement the selected locking function.
All programmable modes of lock system operation are stored in the RIM. The RIM checks the lock function program selected against the lock requests, the transmission selection and ignition key switch condition to determine if the requested function is permitted. If the requested function is permitted, the RIM then commands the DDM to perform the lock function over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The DDM commands the individual door modules to perform the lock function over the SBI serial data circuit.


GOOD luck your going to need it !

Power window


Make sure it's not the switches, over the years I have replaced far more power window switches than I ever have fuses.
Try and remove the switches and then check with a multimeter or a simple bulb and two wires rigged up to see if you have power at the switches.

If window will not roll up it can be caused by a problem with the mechanism, no power getting to motor, bad switch, bad motor, fuse issue.

Passenger Power Window Switches Do Not Function


All the wiring for all the windows flow through the master switch...both power and ground. So the problem is most likely a bad master switch or a broken wire in the hinge area of the driver's door. Get a wiring diagram and check for power and ground coming to the switch. If so, then the switch is most likely bad. Read this post http://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/window-goes-up-but-not-down/

I have a 2010 Toyota Camry with a front passenger window problem. The window goes up and comes right back down sometimes when I push the button to roll the window up. The window will finally stay up...


Hello Susan..... What you are experiencing is the jam protection function: During automatic
closing operation, the window stops and opens half way if something gets caught
between the window and window frame. If the window receives a strong impact,
this function may work even if nothing is caught.

If the power window does not operate automatically or the jam protection function does not operate correctly, you should normalize the power window
To normalize the power window:
1. Push down the power window switch and lower the windows fully.
2. Pull up the switch until the windows close and hold the switch for a second. Make sure that the window open and close automatically. If the power windows cannot be operated properly, have it
checked by your dealer.

What color are power wirers that control the left power window contols on my 2000 ford taraus.


Principles of Operation
Power Window Control
The one-touch down (OTD) power window function allows the driver door window glass to completely lower with one button press. The driver window control switch is hardwired to the generic electronic module (GEM) and door window regulator and motor. When the GEM senses a one-touch down request from the driver window control switch, the GEM supplies a ground to the OTD Relay coil. The OTD relay then provides power to the driver window regulator motor, lowering the window. The OTD feature will function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position. The OTD feature also operates while the ignition is OFF and the accessory delay time-out period has not expired

These function through a control module called a BCM, check the fuses first if ok then have the BCM tested for function.
