Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds like the shop may not have had the electrical experience to diagnose the problem if they said every ting was fine yet couldn't find the problem. The engine light won't come on for anything except a failure in the powertrain, power locks and windows can't turn the engine light on.

Are the locks and windows not working from just the master switch? Do they work from their individual switches?

Do you know what fault codes are setting in the engine controller?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he didn't give any fault codes, and I knew that the pwr locks &win should not cause that. But they don't come on from any switch, only when he jumped them to see would they go up & down.

Do you have a big chain parts store such as Autozone? Most will read fault codes for free.

I do have a big chain
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Are you able to have the codes read from the engine controller and let me know what is found?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If there is no check engine light they will not look to check electrical problems, I tried that first at auto zone. If you have no idea whats going on its fine, but I don't want to keep going back to the things I already know
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

The problem will take in depth electrical testing either way.

You said that the engine light was on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but its not after the mechanic went through his system check
