Question about 1989 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Power windows don't work

All power windows stopped working all of a suden All 4 windows do not work. Removed switch assy. from drivers door and disassembled, finding contacts burned badly. Previous owner had wire running from battery to switch, evidently to operate windows. Disconnected that wire, ordered new switch assy, installed and windows still do not operate. Haynes manual (very vague) shows a power main relay and a 30a power circuit breaker but I cannot find the location to check these (wire colors depicted in manual are wrong too). The power door lock switch did not work on the old switch either but it now works. I live in the south and am burning up. Anyone got some good troubleshooting steps / solutions for me?

Power window doesn't work

The window motors don't have brushes to replace,
you should see & feel that,as your inside the door

You remove the regulator assy & motor together,
then the motor

You will have bolts to remove & possibly rivets to
drill out

1998 Buick Regal the windows stopped working on all 4 doors. Ocasionally I would press the widow switch and they would work. I replaced the main switch on the drivers door and they still don't wor

ALL the windows share a common ground, this could be your problem. The ground wire originates at the driver's switch and goes back through the harness to the door, and into the cabin where I think the black ground wire may ground on a frame or bracket in the left kick panel. Just after it comes in from the door. You'd have to look behind the kick panel (foot well) covering to look for the ground screw. There could be a couple other ground wires there too. Or take your meter and check the integrity of the ground wire at the switch. Either use the ohm function or do a voltage drop test to check the ground.

Passenger side power window stopped working. other windows work. cant find fuse. help?

If all the other windows work, you don't have a fuse problem. You have a power switch problem that starts at the drivers door. Go live and I can walk you through it.

Power windows suddenly stopped working on all 4 doors. Been like that for 2 days. Don't see a fuse for the windows. Made sure that wires were completely in place in the plug on the doors. Still...

the power windows are on a circuit breaker.

Sounds like the drivers master switch might be bad. If you have a test light and/or a volt meter I would be happy to give you some info on figuring it out.

Can't find power window reset switch on a 2001 sebring

Theres no reset switch,test the motor if all window are not working then check all your fuses.even the ones under the hood, most times the windows stop working its due to a bad window motor or the driver door window control switch, pop switch iut and check the connections.

The power windows just quit working. I have replaced the circuit breaker (30A), removed the door panel and checked the power to the window switch unit. I get 12 volts to the switch unit. It's all four...

If there is power to the switch, the switch is the point of failure. You can verify by checking for power at the window motors when the switch is pressed. It is also possible that there is a faulty ground connection from the switch, but this is unlikely. 99% chance replacing the switch assy. will solve the problem.
