Okay, 30 amp fuse under steering wheel was blown so I replaced it. All windows and locks work except for driver window. Now I checked voltage at the plug that goes into the switches and I have 3 wires having 12v. I’m assuming I should have 4? I used multi-meter and found to have continuity from the kick panel to the Sam plug in the door on all but the red and I believe blue which are the colors of the wires that go into window motor. Is it possible both those wires happen to be cut in between the kick panel and plug are am I missing something?

Welcome to 2CarPros.

First, the green and red wires going to the left front (driver's) window will only have power based on the direction selected. See picture 1. Red is for down, and the green is up.

What I have done is attach the entire wiring schematic for you to review. I had to break it into two different pics for it to fit, but you will see all the wires and colors to help guide you. Also, I did overlap the pics so you can follow one to the next.

Take a look through it and let me know exactly which wires you are checking and what you are finding.

Take care,
Joe
