Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer!My name is***** am a ASE master technician and i will be happy to assist you with your window concern. I will be asking you a series of questions to give you the best possible hep that i can. Is the passenger front window the only window that does not work?

yes sir
Expert:  Derek Werner replied 10 months ago.
Ok no problem, it is very likely that a wire is broken at one of the front door to body harnesses. You will need to check both the passenger front door and drivers front door for a broken wire or wires. Pull back on the black rubber boot that covers the wire harness and inspect for any broken or bare wires. This is a very common spot for the wires to break. If no broken wires are found i can help test the wiring for the windows. If you could kindly rate my service it would be very appreciated so i can receive credit, i will continue to work with you even after rated. I get notifications about any other questions you may have. I only strive for excellent service, Thank you for being a great customer.Derek W

i went thru 5 steps of pinpoint test. im not getting grnd i guess
Expert:  Derek Werner replied 10 months ago.
I would physically look at the wires this is a common problem. If you ohm test the wires the test will pass even if the wire is corroded. all there needs to be is one strand of wire still connected for the ohm test to pass.
