Hi, I'm trying to diagnose a non-working front passenger side power window switch on a 2008 Escalade. Only the lock/unlock function works. The window, mirror and mirror turn signal don't.

Yes they run a wire loom that has wires that are not used in some models. One thing you need to check is the wire loom because it flexes every time the door opens and closes and wires can break .Also you may want to go to autozone website and make a free account, you can put in the year make and model and look for the free repair guides for wire diagrams.

2000 le sabre, power windows, door locks, side mirrors, not working all of a sudden

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 windows dont work

There is a circuit breaker for power windows .
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
Driver Door Switch (DDS)

Passenger Door Switch (PDS)

Body Control Module (BCM)

Rear door power window switches

Power window motors in each of the doors

PWR WDO Circuit Breaker

Power Window System Controls
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 driver master control switches are integrated into the DDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the DDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the DDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist and during window motor operation the DDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation.
The DDS controls the passenger window by a serial message to the PDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the PDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the PDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist, and during window motor operation the PDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation. (Scan tool support is available for this system
Check this circuit breaker
RETAINED ACCSRY PRW BRKR 30 amp. located in the left instrument panel fuse box . if the breaker is good check power B+ at the drivers door switch . connector 1 terminal b yellow wire . Sometimes the wires inside the rubber boot coming from body to door break .

Power windiws will not work

So no windows work? Is the window safety lock off? . What year and model? Some power windows have fuses, some have relays, and some (most) have circuit breakers which automatically reset.
One thing all have in common is that the driver's door switch is called the master switch. From the (?circuit breaker?), and with the key on, one hot wire will come into the master switch connector- it is only hot in on or run. And the ground for the power windows starts at this switch and goes back into the cabin to a nearby ground. If no windows work and no liquid was just recently spilled on the master switch, you need to check for broken wires in the door opening. The multi-wire harness in the door opening may be covered by a rubber boot-peel it back or take it off and check the wiring. The ground wire is usually black. A wiring diagram would indicate the color of the power wire. If you have a voltmeter or test light, and can get at the connector for the master switch, turn the key to on and probe all terminals in the connector. There should be one hot wire to the connector for the windows. If you have it, and it is not for the locks or some other function, then possibly the master switch is bad or the ground wire is broke or not connected.
On some vehicles, the master switch can be removed from the door panel to get at the connector. On others, the door panel has to be removed first to get at the switch and connector.

I don't know liter size of engine? May not matter. You see the power window circuit breaker, not only check the circuit breaker, check the circuit for voltage, use a test light. The circuit goes hot with key on.
You can also check wiring harness on hinge side of driver door. When trying to operate window, the tan wire is voltage and black wire is ground. Sometimes those wires break because you open and close the driver door so much.

89 Camry passenger power window not working

I just solved this same problem on my 1989 Camry. The problem was a broken wire somewhere in the door or rubber boot, running between the master switch in the drivers door and the connector (E1, 10-pin blue connector) in the left kick panel. Put one lead of your ohm meter on the pin with the GRN/WHT wire (green with a white stripe) on connector E1, and the other lead of your meter on the same color wire at the master switch connector. If your problem is the same as mine you'll find this wire is broken (no continuity). Try some of the other wires in the same way to ensure you have the right wire bundle. The fun part was fishing a new 16 gauge wire through the boot. I used a fiberglass wire pulling rod from Harbor Freight tools, pulled a heavy string through, tied the new wire to it, and pulled it through. Tip: Pull in some extra wires at the same time; I found another broken wire that stopped my left rear window from working also. I cut the wires near each connector and crimped on **** connectors to splice in my new wires. Works great. Good luck -- Mark

98 beetle windows work with key no power attheswitches

Maybe everyone is as befuddled as me! What kind of system lowers a window with a door key? This is a new one on me.
Usually, power windows have a circuit breaker, rather than a fuse in the circuit.
If you pull off the master switch on the driver's door, on the connector there, you should have one hot wire to the switch with key on in the ignition. You say no power to switches:is that because the switches don't work, or have you verified no power on any wire to the masterswitch?
If you do have a hot wire at the masterswitch, then likely you have a bad masterswitch, or the ground for the power windows may be loose, but that doesn't seem likely if you got the window to roll down with the key. If you don't have a hot wire to the masterswitch with key on, then you need to check the wiring going into the door. Maybe a wire got broke there.
Good luck.

I want to remove passenger side rear door panel because window is down and won't stay up


Here is a little information on how window regulator works. Also step by step instruccions on how to remove and install the window glass.

Door Glass & Regulator Power Windows
Diagnosis & Testing
When the rear window lockout feature is enabled, the circuit is open and no voltage is supplied to the rear window switches. When the feature is not enabled, the circuit is connected to battery positive voltage. If this circuit is shorted to ground when the lockout feature is not enabled, the PWR WDO circuit breaker may cycle continuously OFF/ON until, either the lockout switch is pressed to open the circuit, or the circuit breaker is permanently damaged. All windows may be partially or totally inoperative while the fault is present.
Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the system. Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom. Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions.
Removal & Installation
Window Motor & Regulator
  1. Position window approximately half way down in the door.
  2. Remove the interior trim panel.
  3. Remove the water deflector.
  4. Tape the window to door frame to prevent it from moving.
  5. Remove the three front door window regulator motor screws.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window regulator motor.
  7. Remove front side door window regulator motor.
  8. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Window Switch
  1. Remove the front door pull cup screws and pull cup from the front door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the front door power window control switch.
  3. Remove the front door window control switch using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

  1. Remove the rear door pull cup from the rear door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the power window control switch.
  3. Remove the rear door window control switch from the pull cup using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the power window control switch to release the power window control switch retainer.
  4. Remove the power window control switch from the rear door pull cup.

2007 Dodge Dakota power widow intermittent

Find yourself wiring diagrams an test the electrical circuits . Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? How to take the door panels off an check power an ground circuits to the switches ? If not , your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop. You probably don't know what serial data network is ?
The B+ power for the door locks & power windows comes from a circuit breaker ,not a fuse . Circuit breakers very really fail .
You probably have broken wire inside the rubber flex boot from the body to the driver door .
