You have to remove the inner door panel, to acess the
power window motor and the plug.

You need an owners manual to find the fuse

2001 olds aurora, no power to passenger side window modules..plugged them into driverside doors they work.. also tried pass. side window motors on d.s and they work fine, any idea on what wire is power....

If the driver window works, the 30A PWR WDO CB and the 10A DRVMDL fuse in the rear fuse block must be OK. The passenger window gets power from the 10A PASS MDL fuse and that should be checked. The rear windows get power from the 10A RRDR MDL fuse and that, too, should be checked. The same circuit breaker and fuses protect the door locks so replacement of the burned out fuses should clear up your problem

Replaced window switch on 02 prizm and now none of the windows work nor the sunroof. any ideas?

Check the fuses for the windows and sunroof. Good chance you blew them when plugging or unplugging them. If not the fuse, then recheck the plug for a good connection.

I think my window motor has gone bad on my drivers side window on my 1989 GMC Suburban 5.7 liter. I need help on trying to fix it and where do i even begin?

I would begin by checking the fuse for the window. Switch with another fuse, as those are breaker type and a failure is not detectable by looking at it. Then remove window switch and check for power in and out of switch. If power is present, jump the connectors in the wiring plug and see if the window works or you hear the motor in the window hum. (replace switch if window works) If switch works and you get no motor movement, replace the window motor. Usually the window will begin to go up and down very slowly before they go completely out, so that is the symptom. To replace the motor, remove inside door panel and unbolt old motor, replace and rebolt, reverse disassembly. Good videos on for that procedure on most vehicles.......Mike

Electric windows not working on driver side door

three things to check is
1) check you fuse pretty sure its not that but its the easiest to check and rule out .
2) take you door panel off and unplug you two connecting wires to the window motor get a test light and make sure you are getting power to the window motor if you are your window motor is bad.
3) if not power is going to the window motor then it could be a relay or you drivers window switch.

I have a 1997 ford explorer, and it has power seats and power windows.and the windows and seats will not move.all of the fuses have been checked and are good.

If the fuses are checked ok then there is a possibility that either driver door side main switch or the window regulator or the window motor is gone faulty.
If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Driver side power window doesnt work

Its possible, check underhood fuse box, the position 6, 60AMP for Power Windows

Other details can find in the Ford-Explorer-Owners-Manual (page 187 and next)

If the fuse is OK, take off the trim panel to check the windows motor, windows switch and wires.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

1998 Stratus -> power windows quit.

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.
