HAVE YOU CHECKED FUSES?

Sorry I should have mentioned the fuses were the first thing that was checked. It seems odd that all four would stop working at the same time. Any ideas? I could take the door apart but dont know what im looking for.

LOOKS LIKE 2 FUSES ASSOCIATED TO THIS, "56" AND "57", BOTH ARE "25 AMP". THE EZist THING TO DO IS PULL 'EM SEVERAL TIMES AND REINSERT. AS ON MY JEEPS, SOMETIMES MILD CORROSION GETS ON THE TIPS OF FUSES AND THEIR SOCKETS. JUST GETTING THEM IN MOTION WILL SOMETIMES SCRAPE IT OFF, AND THINGS WILL WORK AGAIN!

EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE CHECKED THEM--SOMETIMES JUST SWAPPING OUT FOR DIFFERENT/ OR NEW ONES MIGHT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. LIKE I SAID, WE'RE DOIN' THE EZ/ EZist STUFF 1ST!

WITH A TEST LIGHT, WHILE THE FUSES ARE REMOVED. AND WITH THE "KEY ON" LETS SEE IF ONE SIDE OF THE FUSE SOCKET IS "HOT", THIS WILL INSURE THERE IS NOT A POWER PROBLEM, PRIOR TO THE FUSE.A INEXPENSIVE TEST LIGHT OR A VOLTMETER CAN BE USED (I MIGHT CAN TALK YOU THRU THIS, IF YOU ARE LOST!)

DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THE ABOVE. CAN YOU DO THIS?

I DID FIND YOU A DIAGRAM (THERE WERE 2 ONE WAS "NO PWR REAR WINDOWS" THIS ONE IS W/ PWR WINDOWS). LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A "RELAY". SAD THING IS, IT'S BEHIND THE DRIVERS DOOR PANEL. IT IS A "ONE TOUCH", I GATHER THAT YOU TOUCH IT, AND THE WINDOW(S) GO THRU THE MOTIONS WITHOUT "HANGING ON TO THE BUTTON CONSTANTLY". FEATURES THAT MY 2 JEEPS, WILL NEVER HAVE A PROBLEM WITH!

I'M GONNA SUBMIT THIS MUCH, AND GO LOOK FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON GETTING INTO THE DRIVERS DOOR PANEL

BEAR WITH ME. IMMA TRYIN'!

RESPOND, WITH ANY INFO,

I HOPE TO BE BACK SOON WITH MORE INFO. BEFORE YOU DESTROY YOUR DOOR!

You were so helpful I truly appreciate it. Im not good with computers not sure how I ended up with a duplicate post, and im not sure if you read my other post but I fixed the power windows. I took the door apart to find the windows not connected, I had the power mirror changed and the mechanic didnt hook up the windows when he put everything back together! Needless to say I wont be going back to him for any work! Thnx again for everything, I have bookmarked you in case I need help in future, and its a Ford, so im sure I will lol.
