Sure, but you need to figure out why they are breaking. Is there enough slack at the boot? If not, maybe you need to splice in some extra wire. I would solder the connections and then tape them well with electrical tape. I have included diagrams below. Make sure you pull out the fuse before doing the work. What other questions do you have?

    Good job. Did you get the diagrams I sent? For some reason, FixYa has changed all the diagrams I uploaded. I need to report the bug, but can you tell me if you saw the right diagrams previously?

My passenger side window will not roll up or down?

I usually want to look at wiring harness on hinge side of passenger door. Probably has a protective rubber boot, try to pull it back far enough to see wire colors, check the proper wire colors for voltage and ground.
If you want us to look up wiring diagram, we need year--make--model.
At the moment, I can't rule out window motor?

03 aurora were is power windows fuse

No fuse, there is a circuit breaker in rear fuse box. The rear fuse box seems to be under the rear seat cushion.
An easier way might be to check wire harness on hinge side of driver door. Probably has a protective rubber boot covering, pull the covering back far enough to check proper wire color. Orange wire is voltage for power windows, hot all the time. Use a test light to probe that wire for voltage. If voltage, the CB isn't the problem. You also need ground, black wire.
Sometimes those wires may break because you open and shut the driver door so much.

The passenger front window got stuck down and would not roll back up. the first thing I did was got another regulator/motor (one unit). plugged in the unit, turned car on. YES it works, bolted down

You have broken wires running between the door and the car's body in the boot if you pull it back to the rubber boot you will see the wires broke fix this in your problems would go away

What is year--make--model? You may have a wiring harness on hinge side of passenger door. Probably has a protective rubber boot covering, Pull the rubber boot back so you can access the proper wire color for voltage and ground. I can't look up the proper wiring diagram w/o knowing which vehicle you have?

Passenger side rear window will not goup,I have had both front wiring harness replaced,pulled rubber boot back it looks like and orange and gray wire are broke,cost me 200.00+ on each front window part was...

If you have already identified the broken wire, get a piece of shrink tubing and slide it on one end, put the wire ends back together and solder them. slide the shrink tube over the repair and heat it up (usually a lighter works fine just don't melt it). After it's working again, send me the extra money
(only kidding) If you aren't good at soldering, practice on another piece of scrap wire before you try it.

I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. The passenger side front window goes down but will not go back up.

almost all the time it's the switch. The passenger side has two switches will the window go up with the switch on the passenger door? If it does it might not go down with the passenger door switch. Down with the master and up with the passenger switch is common. If it works like this both switches are good and you have a brocken wire. The wire can be found with a test light hooked to ground and then hooked to power. It requires that both switches be popoed up out of the door panel. ( pry up at the rear of the switch, then it pulls reaward and up) With both switches up look to see which wires are the same color. put the test lights point into the back of the plug right next to the wire. with the key on work the switch. it will light in one direction. go to that same colored wire in the other switch plug and work the switch the same way. If the light comes on the same its good. then check the other wire. the wire that doesn't work is broke. I'll even tell you where it's broke at!? Right inside the boot in the drivers side door hindge area. Unhook the boot and pusit back till you can see the wires ( theres a bunch and find the one thats the same color) pull on it and it'll come free as it's broke find both ends and connect them ( Oh thats right it'll break again for the same reason it broke the first time ) So add a peice of wire ( Hopefully the same color but it's not required) make the connections and then get in the kick panel and find the wire and pull the repair though then with the door panel out of the way pull ithought there too and you have a new wire where it bends and it'll stay fixed for awhile

open the rear door ,at the hinge you will find a rubber boot, pull the boot back and you will find that 1 or 2 of the wires have broken, repair with extra wiring to stop cable stretching.

The pass front window and the two rear windows do not work

open door and pull back rubber boot in door jam and look for broken wires. this is the most common cause for this. look real good because they could look good and be broke in half so tug on them and seperate them from eachother. if not then you will need to check the mater switch to see if the window lock is faulty.

do you have a test light?

Power windows, door locks and mirrors inop.

Sounds familiar - I pulled the rubber boot back and found the black wire was broken. I stripped the wires and put on a couple bullet connectors (terminators) and all is good. Just wish I would have seen this post before I took the door panel off... Oh well...
