Did they both stop working at the same time?
Do you have a meter and test light so I can walk you through some testing?

they both stopped at the same time. yes I have a meter and test light. Problem is, I can't do it now. Can you tell me what to do. Then if I have a question can I call/text you back?
Dodge Mechanic: Mazda Ed, Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
Since they stopped at the same time I want you to remove the master window switch. Use your test light from the black (ground) wire to the tan(power) wire and see if it lights up with the key in run.
If it does not then see if you aren’t getting power or aren’t getting ground.

It is getting power. When I put the switch back together it would work a few times. Then quit. So I bent the prongs slightly. That seems to fix it.
What about the breaks on left rear grabbing on quick stops?
Dodge Mechanic: Mazda Ed, Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
Is it front disc and rear drum brakes or 4 wheel disc?Do you have ABS?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Front disk
Back drum
Yes it has ABS
Dodge Mechanic: Mazda Ed, Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
It’s possible that the drum itself is warped which would cause a grabbing condition on quick hard application of the brakes. You can test this by swapping the drums from side to side or install new drums.
