Instant problem. No warning or suggestion of pending problem.
The electric windows quit working, along with the speedmeter/odometer. I don't know if it could be related, but the transmission isn't shifting as it should.
Thanks very much -
Jerry

Couple of years ago rear left side power window stopped working. Since it was fully closed I didn't bother much. Now the rear right side stopped working, and window won't roll up!

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Can you hear the window motor trying to run when hitting switch? If not they are probably failing one by one. If so then remove door panel and inspect the window to see whats its doing when motor is engaged.

My windows don't work anymore. When I press the window controls the reverse (R) light comes on. To make matters worse when I turn my car on and turn the headlights on I cannot put the car in gear (it's locked). When I turn off the headlights then I'm able to put it in gear. While driving I turn the headlights on and the transmission gears down to first and will not shift to second gear also all the lights on the dashboard goes dim. What could be the problem? Please help!

First check the fuses for each circuit. Also, you didn't say if they won't work at all, or just when you try to control them with the driver's controls. (Do the switches on the other doors work)

Because if the other switches work, then it's probably your door switch is bad, or the wiring that runs through the door to the switch has a break in it.

Hi, I have a problem with my driver side window switch, I can lock all the doors and I can stop all the other windows from opening with the lock feature. All the other windows open and close on there own but I can't open my window or any of the other windows from the master switch. I thought it was the master switch so I changed it and good thing it was burnt on the inside I bought an after market replacement and it works the door locks and the window lock, my old burnt out switch did the same things. Can you help?

Hi danie2u,

The last part of your question is rather confusing.

Do you mean to say the new master switch also cannot operate the other windows?

The master switch can be used to stop current supply from going to the other windows but operating them is a separate circuit.

Since you said the old master switch was burnt, you need to check the wires and connectors.

You need to check for a separate fuse for the driver door window.

Hi and thanks for you quick response. I'm sorry for not explaning myself better, but yes the new master switch I put in doesn't work any of the windows just the door locks and it stops the other windows from opening if I push the lock window feature. You said I might need to check a separate fuse, can you tell which one and where it is located. I know I said my old master switch was burnt but this didnt effect any of the wires it just burnt on the inside

My back right window wont roll up and the other 4 including the sunroof wont work either. Is it a fuse that has gone bad? It is a year 1995

Hi crast,

Problem could be due to a bad fuse, ( POWER FUSE 30 A) or power main relay, both located at relay box on left side of instrument panel.

Other possible causes would be a faulty master switch or wiring circuit.

Check the fuse and relay first.
