Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

1998 Stratus -> power windows quit.

Power windows do not operate. Check circuit breaker/fuse in the dash; drivers side and it appears okiedokie ( .2 ohms ). Pulled the fuse and connected a DVM and I don't have power to either side of the fuse socket. Power is going into the computer and fuse assembly ( 12.5ish ).

I found the connection to the window motors and I can see that the up/down buttons indeed work while looking at an Ohm meter.

Ideas?

Schematic of that fuse box would be great.

thanks

What you need to do is use a method we refer to as back feeding. Going back to the fuse that has no power across it. Leave the fuse installed, and then using a long jumper wire, commect one end to a known 12 volt power source and the with the other end of the wire, tap one end of the fuse. If there is no spark, and the fuse does not blow, leave the test wire connected to the fuse and operate the power window switch in question. If the window now operates, begin to check back towards the switch to diagnoss the loss of power.

This is the fuse panel cover for a 1999 1500 Chevy Silverado which fuse controls the driver side window switch


The picture is too dark. Usually the power windows, all of them, are protected by a 25 or 30 amp circuit breaker. It is usually found in the instrument panel fuse block, under the dash on the driver's side. The circuit breaker is a matchbook size "fuse", usually silver colored. A circuit breaker automatically resets if it gets tripped by like a short.

If you pull off the master switch, the driver's side switch, you should have one hot wire with key on. The power wire and the ground for the windows are both in the driver's master switch. This is where you begin testing the power windows if none are working. Check for a hot wire, and check the ground wire- use a multi-meter.

I have a saturn ion 06 coupe, neither of my windows are working! I have checked the fuse replaced both motord\regulators and the switches. They're still not working!! Plz help


Please do these check and let me know.

Diagnostic Fault Information

Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure.

Circuit/System Description

The power window system will operate any time the ignition is the ACC or RUN position. The power window system will also operate whenever the body control module (BCM) is in retained accessory power (RAP) mode. The driver power window switch contains individual window switches for each of power windows. All windows may be controlled up and down from the driver power window switch. The individual passenger power window switches will only control the up and down operation of their respective power window.
Each power window contains a reversible power window motor. The direction the window travels is dependent upon the polarity of the supply voltage. By reversing polarity of the supply voltage the window motor will move up or down. Each power window motor is internally circuit breaker protected.
Battery voltage is supplied to the power window switch through the accessory voltage supply circuit. The power window switch also receives a constant ground source. The power window motor control circuits are connected to ground through the normally closed up and down contacts of the power window switch. When the power switch is placed in the down position, the power window motor down control circuit is switched to 12 volts and is applied to the down side of the power window motor. Since the other side of the power motor is connected to ground through the normally closed contacts of the up switch, the window travels down. By placing the power window switch in the up position, the polarity of the power window motor is reversed and the window travels up.

Where is the power windows fuse and what size is it


depends,
some cars yes, others a circuit breaker under dash.
why ask size?
open the operators guide , its there. (google for it if lost)
see power wind. fuse. there it is , and size.
if all fuses on car are not bad, then why look for it.
if no fuse box fuse exists, then there IS a breaker preventing all fires in this circuit.

06 DODGE STRATUS WINDOWS INOP, NO POWER TO FUSE OR CIRCUIT BREAKER


If no power to the fuse panel for that fuse and circuit breaker, you may have a maxi-fuse burnt out in the power distribution box by or near the battery. Check all your fuses under the hood.

Check the main fuse box next to the battery, # 8 max fuse powers IGN MAIN 2 Ignition Switch to Fuses (I/P): BCM PRGRM, FRT HVAC LOW/MED BLWR, FRT WPR/WSHR, HVAC/DRL, MALL/RADIO/DIC, PWR QRT VENT, RR HVAC, RR WPR/WSHR, SWC ACCY & PWR WDO Circuit Breaker.

#3 circuit breaker is the front window breaker, try swapping it out with another breaker beside it and thats located in the side dash panel also.

The common cause of failed power window function is the switch on the doors going bad from dirt. Does the power window on the passenger side go down with the passenger side switch?? if it does then its a bad drivers side and and try cleaning the switch with electrical contact cleaner. 95% of the time this will save you from buying a new switch.

Hi, 2008 328xi coupe, the power window buttons on driver's door stopped working, is there a fuse?


The window operate on a circuit breaker type fuse, fi the window are working with the other buttons then its not a power loss problem, the circuit breaker hardly ever fails, also sometimes if the master switch which is the driver door switch, fails then you may not be able to operate the other windows with the other switches but not always the case, also theres a module that controls the winows, i would remove the door switch and make sure the connection is good, these switches often go bad from getting wet,just to be on the safe side there may be a fuse for the window module if that goes theen glass will not work, theres a fuse box on the right side of the dash and then there one in the truck on the right side i would check all the fuses, they sometimes use power from another system so check all fuses, good luck,

A circuit breaker does not blow, it just trips. In the distribution box # 4 is the breaker for the power windows. The power windows have a relay that may be defective especially if you hear no click.
