Howdy from Tennessee, I'm Chris aka Moose. Glad you've come here and are willing to let us at Just Answer assist you. May I get the first name of the person I am helping?

No power meaning you have removed the door panel and used a volt-ohm meter to test and confirm?

Would wiring diagrams also help?

Garyno meaning that the windows and lock do not work on drivers door.the lights on the window switch are flashingthis happened after i changed the battery they were working before i changed it
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Thanks for those details, Gary, sorry you are experiencing this frustrating electrical issue.

Would you be able to perform some wiring tests?

Do you have a scan tool to see if there are codes?

Remove both battery cables, and hold the cable ends together for one minute to reset all modules. Does that help?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i can do electrical test. i have scan tool and there are no codes.if i remove both ends and hold them together will this cause any damage??
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Super, here are the diagrams we will be using https://www.dropbox.com/s/kdtxwnxss3k2orh/93windows.pdf?dl=0

Resetting modules does not damage them.

After doing so, try this calibration https://www.dropbox.com/s/v4bmmzd2ru2nz39/pinchprogram.pdf?dl=0

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do i know if it has pinch protection??
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

You would just do the calibration and see if it resolves the concern or not.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok so take the battery loose first ?
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

That is correct, do the reset first.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
This did not help
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Thanks for trying the reset and calibration. Next, we need to wire test in the door. Can you test the power and ground to the door module?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
even with the car turned off and no key in the ignition the lights on the window switch still flash
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Will you be able to do some electrical testing?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
have you seen this before?
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, Gary

I have seen electrical issues like yours and diagnosed those.

Next, we need to wire test in the door. Can you test the power and ground to the door module?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i will not be able to test today can i get back to you tomorrow ? send me the next 3 or 4 steps that i can try tomorrow i am running out of light.
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Sure, we can continue tomorrow. The next steps can go either way depending on the results of the module's wiring inputs.

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok what is next?
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

I need to know the results of the wire tests.

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok lets say the power is good and ground is good to module what is next?
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Nest you would connect a scan tool and see if there are codes stored in the module.

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
there are no codesi have already done the scan with no codes
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Using your scan tool and looking at the door module data, does it show the door window switches being pressed?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no i dont think it will
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

That means your tool is likely not able to even access this module to diagnose it. A scan tool with this ability is about $800 for a cheap one.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that tool is not for me cant afford that lolwhat bothers me the most is all of this worked before i changed the batteryliterally used all of the components on the door right before the battery changeshould i pull fuse due to flashing lights will not run down my battery??
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, you will need to diable the power while not using the vehicle to prevent a battery draw.

Since a couple of days have passed with no response, I am going to try and provide an answer. Please respond when you can, with the information asked prior, then I can help better. I cannot be as accurate and thorough as I would like in my answer, so I will keep it short and sweet for now.

I believe the failure is going to be a faulty door module or there is a wiring break in the door jam wire harness loom.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed if not please press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know. Moose
