    i have the same problem with my 01 aurora. The only windows that work are the drivers and the sun roof.

    We had the rear passenger side window repaired because it wouldn't raise and lower. Then the front passenger side window stopped working, and today the rear window on the driver's side stopped working. This really feels like a problem. We paid $800 for the first window repair.

    Yes, i have tested all of the fuses and no the windows will not go up or down with either switch.

A bit late to the party, but perhaps I can help. GM went to a cable-operated system of window regulator in the late 1990's, saving space and money. Both ends are anchored into a block in the middle that attaches to the bottom of the window regulator, so when the cable winds in one direction, the window goes up, and vice-versa. This block is a composite material, and, over time, it breaks, releasing one end of the cable. You have to replace the window regulator when this happens, and some models have the motor built into the regulator assembly. As with most other GM parts, the regulator costs GM about $12, but it's going to cost you about 40 times that at list price. Combine this with the two hours of labor required to change out the part, and you have an $800 repair bill.

These units aren't repairable under normal conditions, partly because they are put together under tension and the metal parts are then welded together. So, rebuilts are not available.

1998 Rav 4 power windows.. Front Passenger window will not roll up from master or passenger side. No noise, need new motor

Each system is bad. The windows need regulators(they come with motors) the radio probably died(check fuse). And the mirror switch is bad(Since you still have power to the drivers window).

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?

Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

Passenger electric window

Hi Ethel101
I think that what has happened with your vehicle, is that the master (driver control) switch has become defective....If you have a friend who is good with electronics you may be able to ask for help in getting it fixed....otherwise a new unit is needed.

Best regards
