Question about Baby Gear
I can't get my windows to go up or down. power is reaching the relay also reaching the switches i think but I do know that it is almost impossible for electric window moters to burn out at once. how can i get the windows to go up they have been down all winter
My passenger window would go down, but not up. It turned out there was a broken wire that went from the driver's door to the passenger door. It probably broke in the rubber flex thing that goes from the car body to the driver's door. I bypassed the wire with a jumper from the harness in the door to the continuation of the harness on the floor under the door sill on the driver's side. The jumper wire comes out of the armrest and loops around near the hinge area to the floor.

My passenger window would go down, but not up. It turned out to be a broken wire, probably in the flex rubber housing that goes from the car body to the driver's door and contains all the wires that go to/from the driver's door.
I bypassed it with a wire that goes from the harness inside the driver's door to the continuation of the harness inside the car at a point point somewhere near/under the door sill of the driver's door. This harness continues to the passenger door.
So I have an orange wire coming out of the armrest and looping to the floor. Not pretty, but it gets the job done. It is looped out of the way sufficiently to not be a problem. The only other choice is to try to do surgery on the rubber housing that supposedly protects all the wires that go from the body to the door. The bypass seemed easier.

What you could do is remove the door card and bypass the switch and put the windows up the windows work from the drivers door ie all the power goes through the window switch first then to all other switches like a set of jump leads also check were the wires go to the door you might have a broken wire check the colour of the power and trace it back from the fuse board to the drivers switch
