ok thanks
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

theres only one fuse. it goes the the power window relay which controls all the windows through the master panel on the drivers door panel which branches out to the other windows.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
that is interesting. does that fuse also govern the drivers window, power locks, and rear windshield wiper?
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

no it does not. but the same body control module that it powers up from controls all of that.

heres a couple prints for you to browse

Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

ill be back on in about an hour. i have to get to my shop

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
the images are helpful, but that doesn't seem to make sense bc only the passenger (front & back) windows don't work.
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

do the windows work with the drivers control panel switches? or do they work with the individual switches at each door? or not?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
only the driver's window works. the passenger windows will not respond to the individual switches or the master switch on the driver's door.
Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

ok. then since the master control everything basically, you will need to remove the master panel at the drivers door. back probe the connector the have the outputs to those 2 doors and see if you are getting power to those wires. if you are, then the panel will need replaced. if you arent then we need to figure out if its the wiring to the panel or the body ecu.
