You have a power supply problem ,most likly the main board will have to be replaced, My best advice is to call out an authorized Sylvania dealer because if you make a mistake on what board is bad, they will not take it back. Play it safe. Good Luck

Location of fuse for power windows

Probably not fuse but more likely switch or wiring. If failure occurs from switch in driver's door, try switch in the door where window is not working. If it works from there, driver's switch is bad or wiring in door hinge area has a break which comes and goes.

How do i fix this, i turn my game on the nintendo five seconds later this thing comes up it says an error occurred

Look at the console lights around the power button. If the lights go all red or there are just a couple lit then you need to have unit fixed. I have fixed this problem a couple times myself but the fix does not last long.

My 89 suburban tailgate window will not go down with either toggle switch or key. Have had different problems in past, such as intermittently window goes up but not down especially in warm weather, and...

sounds like a problem with the motor. I would check to see if there is power at the motor and how much if there is than try applying power directly to the motor and see if it will work.

Passenger side power window inop. Possibly a switch, fuse? Can I fix myself? What parts are required? Thanks

Try removing the door panel, and then feeding direct power to the motor using two wires connected to power (positive) and ground (negative). Connecting the wires one way will make the motor move the window up, and reversing the connection will make the window go down. If the motor works ok when you do this, then you have a wiring or switch issue, likely a switch. If the motor doesn't work with direct power and ground, then you have identified the problem. Good Luck!
