Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX im happy to offer you assistance today.
First the passenger window front would not work from the drivers control panel, now nothing works except the drivers window.
I see, from the description i strongly suspect you are having an issue with just the window switch itself.
We have reset the circuit breaker, but not results
All the power for the other windows runs through that master switch in the drivers door. The other windows dont work from their own door switches either, correct?
Tha definately points to the switch on the drivers door. I would replace it. If youd like me to walk you through how to test it and be sure, i can find a wiing diagram for you. Prob take me about 10-15 mins.
That would be great, thank you.
great, ill be right back.
ok, the diagram is two parts here... if you look on the first one you'll see the driver window switch.
what you can do, is get the switch removed from the door panel (may need remove entire panel from door, only a few screws and some plastic clips retain it) and leave the switch plugged into the wiring for your test.
using a voltmeter or testlight, whichever you choose check for power at the wires ill list for you here. Im reading the diagram as im typing so stay wth me a minute. : )
you should have 12 volts at the red with yellow color, and green with yellow wires (at that main switch) when trying to roll down the rear windows. If you do not find volts, or test light doesnt light up at these wires with the vehicle key on, and trying to using the part of the driver door switch for the rear windows, the switch is faulty.
If you get lost, just follow the wire colors on the diagram. Or come back and send me a msg. : )
Be sure to let me know how it turns out for you either way. I really think you just have a worn out switch in that drivers door.
Terrific. Do you know the part number for the switch if I need to replace it? Do you think a used switch would work, or should I get a new one?
Id be comfortable with a used switch, if the salvage yard or seller offers a 30 day warranty or so.
As long as its guaranteed to be good when your buying it.
Great, I will give it a go and let you know!
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX!
