Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question.

Have him access the lite blue/black wire at pin 17 of the of the Smart Junction Box and check it for battery power with the connector still plugged into the box. If power is present out of the SJB, service the lite blue/black wire for an open circuit to the switch. The most likely area of an open wire would be between the vehicle body and the driver door where the loom flexes with each opening and closing of the driver's door. Have him pull the boot back and have a look at the harness.If there is no output of power on the LB/BK wire, the SJB will need replacement.

I hope this works as I put another $100 into my car yesterday and a month ago he replaced the transmission, starter, waterpump. and money is tight and I'm stressed out!!! I will keep you posted.

HI RON


I HAD MY SON IN LAW LOOK AT MY WINDOWS AND HE FOUND A WIRE THAT WAS BAD AND FIXED IT AND NOW I HAVE 3 WINDOWS THAT WORK BUT THE DRIVERS DOOR STILL DOES NOT WORK. HE SAID TO ASK YOU, BUT HE SAID THE MOTOR IN THE DRIVERS DOOR IS BAD AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACE. WHEN I CALLED A PLACE THEY ASK ME IS IF NEED THE REGULATOR.


WHAT EVER THAT IS...LOL DO I NEED THAT ALSO. THANKS


HOPE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL AND SAFE HALLOWEEN! BRENDA

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
If the regulator is okay you should be able to purchase the window motor separately Brenda.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


HOW WOULD I KNOW IF THE REGULATOR IS BAD?

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
If it was bad it would show some signs of being broke, its most likely not if the motor is bad.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


OK I WILL LET HIM KNOW. HE IS NOW WORKING 12 HOUR DAYS ON THE NIGHT SHIFT AND NOT OFF UNTIL TUESDAY AGAIN. WILL KEEP YOU POST. THANKS AGAIN...YOU ARE AMAZING AT YOUR JOB. BRENDA
