Check the fuse first, each power window has it own circuit as they draw a lot of power. You owners manual will have a fuse chart and where they are. If the fuse is OK, try and pry out the switch, or in some Pontiac's they come out with part of the panel. Check to see if the wires are connected or that they are not damaged. If they are OK, get a switch from another window and hook it up to the bad one. If this works then you need a new window switch.

Why doesn't my 2000 chevy blazer power windows and door locks and remote mirror doesnt work. Power window on passenger side does work


well, the first thing is to check the fuses and or relay for power windows.should be listed in your owners manual. if ok, then remove switch from drivers side window and check for power. if power to the switch then use a jumper wire from power side to motor side of switch. if window works then its the switch causing the problem. Good-day!

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

Driver side window stopped working


most of the time driver side windows switch be the first switch to wear out.try removing window switch work switch while moving the wires see if window try to go up, if yes, window switch broken.if switch not broken check see if power going to window motor when you work the switch you need a test light or digital volt meter to check to see if power going to power window motor.if power going to power window motor, either window binding or power window motor faulty. make sure driver side window master switch not locked out.if no make sure all the other power windows work if not you have blowed fuse.

Window problem


Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).

Windo motors wont work


The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.

2002 drand am power windows only work from drivers switches. is this a relay problem and how do i check. thanks


Check the drivers side switch for the feed wire to the other windows. Is it getting power. If it isn't you need a new driver side switch, if it is check the passenger switchs to find out if power is getting to any of them. If power is getting to one of them but not passing threw the switch replace the switch, this is the one that would be next in line after the drivers side. Also did you check the drivers side window lock?
