can you provide any guidance on how to get the part out? There is not an obvious release point.
Hi Tim. I got the fuse out (there was a release). As it turns out, all of the relays are the same. I replaced the power window relay and the windows still do not work.
Also, I verified that none of the power window switches in the vehicle currently work.
will do. I likely won't be able to test it this afternoon.
Are there any other diagnostics that I can collect in the meantime?
thats helpful. thanks.
This is the follow up to our conversation debugging why the four power windows on my Isuzu trooper wont work.
I got a volt meter and set it to 9 volts (it did not have a 12v setting). I tested the top and bottom pair of slots where the relay is inserted. The top two slots read "5" volts. The bottom two slots read -13 volts.
okay. I am now the proud owner of a auto circuit tester.
I tested two adjacent relay points and found power in both. I also swapped the relays to ensure that both relays work. (the relay adjacent to the power window relay controls the fan to the heating/cooling system. I confirmed that it works with both relays and the power windows do not work with either relay.)
one last question before I further disassemble my car. (Btw, thanks for your help; this is far more support than I expect for $15.)
I have previsously replaced the driver's side power window switch (~8 yrs ago). If I recall correctly, when the driver's side switch when bad, the other windows still worked.
Does this help with your diagnosis?
