Hello my name name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When operating the window motor, the power and ground is suppose to be reverse polarity. Do you have a Volt Meter?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I do, using a test light the polarity dose not change, stays grounded

Is the Passenger window the only one that does not work?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

At the Passenger Window switch, does the White Wire with the Red Stripe have power?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
all the other windows operate properly
I see on the wiring diagram the bcm has something to do with the windows
The drivers window is separate of the other three. What dose the bcm do ???
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
the white wire with the stripe is ignition hot
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
oh you said passenger side, never tried that, but that same wire is hot on drivers side.

Yes.. I want to see if the Passenger window switch is getting power.. The power from the main switch goes through the passenger switch.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I will have to try that in the AM and let you know, but the passenger window works at drivers switch, but never tried it at the passenger switch itself. I just bought this thing used to fix up for a friend, has a lot of electronic gremlins.
I also have problem with spedo not working, sets abs codes for rear wheel speed sensors, test drove with scanner hooked up and both rear wheel speed sensors show 0 MPH front work properly, has fault code for steering wheel angel sensor. Any ideas on those ????? Any help would be greatly appreciated !!!!

Is it the driver or passenger window that is not working? I thought it was the passenger side?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No its the drivers side front only. all others work

Ugh!.. I asked if it was the passenger in the beginning.. thought you said yes. So I was thinking this whole time is was the Passenger..

The White wire with the Red Stripe, and check the Blue wire to the Master window switch

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

I am thinking the Blue wire may not have power..

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The blue wire in the larger plug or the smaller plug ??

Small plug

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No power there, when I check the wires get nothing, the center wire in that plug, cycles door locks, but no voltage at all in that connector.

Are you checking with the key in the ON position?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Is that the wire from the BCM ??

Then you will need to ohm check that blue wire from the master window switch to the BCM. If it's good, then you have a bad BCM. If its bad, then you may want to run your own wire.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

That Blue wire comes directly from the BCM and is for the Drivers window motor operation only

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
That should be supplying 12v ??

Yes.. Battery Voltage

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

Can you read a wiring diagram?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Somewhat, not a expert at it but I saw that the power windows were separate on the BCM, could I run 12v to that blue wire to get it to work ???

You could cause more damage to the BCM. The BCM controls Window Operation, Lock Operation, Starting, Alarm and other things. You don't want to damage the BCM. But if you want to supply a 12v source as a test, you can do that.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

I can share the wiring diagram with you if you like?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
OK ill check the circuit first, If you have the info that would be fine. Any idea on the other problems I mentioned earlier ??

At this point, it is either a broken wire, a Door harness connector issue or the BCM. Let me get you the info .. 1 min
