I do have a test light but ihave not tried this because I was thinking there was more to it because of the locks not working on both sides also.
About the locks, if I use my remote buttons they work to lock/unlock, and if I use a key from the outside, I can lock or unlock all doors.
I will have to check this power wire at a later time.
Can this post remain open until I can get it checked?
I am not sure on how this works.
Ok, on the passenger side switch there should be a yellow wire. I would like to know how many volts you have on that wire key on. Thanks
OK, that window should be rocking then! not giving you trouble.
Now on the master switch drivers side,I am seeing 2 browns ans a tan. I need to make sure you tested the right brown wire but I have no number for it. On one diagram it is showing the wire as yellow. If you see a yellow going to that switch I would like to have you test it for power with the key on.I don't mean to make you chase your tail here but I need to know if we have any power at all going in there. The 14 volts on the yellow wire passenger side, tells me the breaker and wiring are good to the passenger side. The driver side shares the same power wire, so if we have no power, we have a break in the wire some place.This is why it is important to make sure we have no power headed into the main switch. It could also affect the other switch. Hope this all makes sense!
OK, here is what I think. I think that it could be a bad ground. It would affect both windows. I haven't checked on the rear or the power locks yet, but they may have the same ground. This would explain the trouble with the passenger side. you saw 14 volts,but it is probably less going to the motorthemain ground for these is on the passenger side piller between the door and the sliding door. At the base. You should check it and loosen and retighten the ground. I may have become corroded and has continuity, but not enough.
I have to sign off for the night, but I will be back around 7 eastern time.
I have noticed corrosion on the face of the contact plate for the slider door that connects the slider to the electrical circuit.
Could this be the issue?
OK good I'll probably tear into the pillar this weekend and I can let you know if that helps or fixes the problem.
You bet! I really do want to know. It is really quite a process over the web like this
