Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

the windows will not operate from ANY switch? or just the master?

your window system is computerized and is wired differently than older hard wired windows,

did BOTH rear windows stop at EXACTLY the same time or at different times?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Same time
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

what about the other question i asked?

do the rear switches work

do you hear ANYTHING from the windows

Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

i am trying to determine if this is a wiring problem OR a switch problem

what is your skill level can you read and follow a wiring diagram?

do you have a test light and a digital volt meter to do some testing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I'm thinking it's a fuse problem but I've been trying to find the fuse on diagrams 4 hours and I can't find the fuse on any of the fuse diagrams they have some fuse boxes that don't give diagrams
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

like i said THERE IS NO FUSE it's a fully computerized window system, there is likely a bad switch or broken wire

Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

in a fully computerized system there is a computer in the door that has INTERNAL circuit breakers this eliminating fuses, we have gotten away from a bunch of fuses to protect circuits and allow computers to perform this function, on many areas of the car or truck

Front window work doors lock OK from the front panel rear windows wont work from the front panel or the back panel
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

when we do use a fuse or in the case of a power lock system or power window system we use 1 circuit breaker tor ALL windows or locks no need or sense in fusing all teh motors when 1 will do just fine,

you're looking at a wiring repair MOST LIKELY

Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

since the fronts work fine that eliminates the master switch since it feeds all the windows front and rear and leaves a broken wire or corroded connector in the body

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

if you have the skills this is LIKELY an ALL LABOR repair and will usually cost between 3 and 4 hours time at the shop you choose, maybe more or less depending on what is actually found, HOWEVER if you do NOT have teh skills to read a wiring diagram or th etools to properly test teh circuitry and make good repairs then it's best to go to a pro
