The interior door panel will have to come off on the door that is not working. While operating the switch test for power at the window motor. If you have power there the motor is no good, if you don't it's the switch. Hope this helps

SOURCE: my mazda 3 power window

It's funny, I have the same problem; after looking around carefully, I noticed that the light of the window-switch in the problematic door (front passanger) wasn't going on when the others were, and in the master switch in the driver side, it also wasn't on.
Still gotta figure out what's wrong, though.

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.

Location of the power window relay in a 1998 cadillac eldorado


http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams !
Left Front Power Window Switch
The battery voltage is applied from the WINDOWS circuit breaker through CKT 42 (RED) to the accessory time delay relay. The accessory time delay relay supplies voltage through CKT 70 (PNK) to the left front power window switch under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The retained accessory power (RAP) is active.

When an UP switch on the left front power window switch is operated, the battery voltage is applied to the power window motor. The power window motor is grounded through the DOWN contacts of the left front power window switch to G204. The motor runs in order to drive the power window up. When a DOWN switch in the left front power window switch is operated, the battery voltage is applied to the power window motor in the opposite direction. The power window motor is grounded through the UP contacts in the left front power window switch to G204. The motor runs in order to drive the power window down.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

2003 nissan maxima power window does not work and power doors


I'm assuming that you have taken the window motor and regulator loose from the window track? How do you know for sure the motor and regulator are good? If your sure then the problem is probably the window needs to be adjusted in it's track..a binding problem. And the power locks sounds like faulty servos at whichever door isn't working. Sometimes you can take the servos off and spray them w/ wd-40 or liquid wrench and free them up.

Front power windows quit working


More than likely it is the switch on the driver door panel. The seals on these switches break down after time and can leak water when you open the door in the rain. This causes corosion in the switch contacts and leads to failure. Since the front widows are the ones that are used the most frequently, they are usually the first to fail.
It isn't difficult to change with simple tools. You will need to take the inside door panel off to get to the switch mounting screws and to disconnect the wiring harness from the switch. All of the window switches come out as one unit. Replacement switch assemblies are available from many after market sources.

2000 Chevy Blazer Power windows work from drivers


Are you sure the side window lockout switch located on the drivers master switch isn't on? This will kill power to the other three switches.

If your sure its not on than the I would pull the left rear window switch. There will be two dark blue wires one of them should have power all the time. If neither have power than I would pull the drivers master switch and see if there is power at the dark green wires (one will only have power with the left rear window switch in the up position.

If those are good than check the dark blue wires. one will only have power with the drivers front window switch in the up position. the other should have power all the time. If there is power there than you have a broken wire somewhere. The first place I would look is in the rubber boot in between the drivers door and the body of the vehicle.

If there is no power that the switch is bad.

I have a 2005 Mazda 3. The driver's side power window won't go down...the other 3 windows do (from the left door power switch). When I try to open the driver's window, I hear a noise...maybe like a motor switch?
