Hi, I was recently working on my stereo and when I put the door panels back on the windows and locks dont work! My keyless entry still works to lock/unlock the doors. I know its not the window lock feature, because I already checked. I'm nearly positive that everything electrical got plugged back in securely. Im at a loss here? I checked the fuses, but there's no fuse for windows or locks! HELP!

Are you sure none of the door panel screws went thru any of the wires?Did you ever recheck your work if this started from you taking the door panels off?

There's only three sceews per door panel and they aren't in a place were they could puncture anything. I've rechecked my work and during the process of installation of my stereo I put the panels on several times and the windows and locks worked. Could I have blown a fuse or something?

If the remote can work the door locks, it is not likely that you blew a fuse but system has many control modules and there is no harm checking them over.

You would need a test light or DVOM to continue from here if you are to diagnose the problem.

Driver side junction block on lower side of dash there is a 30 amp fuse labeled power fuse. That should have power to both sides see if it does?Lets start there.

Update. The drivers side has window, lock, and side view mirror controls. The mirror controls work, but nothing else does. I'm gonna have to buy a multimeter to check the fuse. Unless there's a other way to check it? I'm not super car sauvvy.

Its best to get a multimeter there pretty cheap. We need to check to make sure there is power to both sides of the fuse not just that the fuse is good.
