Can't operate electric window on driver's side door


The door panel will have to come off. check for a bad motor or wiring to motor, or a bad drivers side switch. check the fuses first! and is the drivers side window locked on drivers side, just push the unlock window from the master controls on drivers side to see if it works. on my car, the drivers side window would not work. I accidentally hit the window lock with my arm. God-Bless!

Only the drivers window works, first it was the real ones and now the pass. won't work at the door switch


Could be individual switches or the rear may have child safety locks on them--the clue will be usually you cannot open rear doors from inside the vehicle---it (the child locks) will in many cases stop rear windows from working----consult the owner manual or look at inside of rear doors for the slide switch at each door under and near the rear of the armrest.

Power windows not working


1 does the led's light up on the master window switch [drivers side] 2 when you rocker the drivers side down can you hear a audio click down under the steering wheel. the i/p fuse panel is down there where you rest your left foot.3 power is from battery saver relay to master ins. relay to one touch window relay. this is the one you should hear click. the back side of this fuse panel calls out the locations down there. the owners manule also helps some.4. if you take the interior door cover off remove the screw on extenstion on door lock and one screw under plastic button where you pull the door shut.arm rest support bracket. the rest is held in place with snap in plastic buttons [christmas trees like]. the door latch unlock should slide out of the opening when you slide it froward.there are 4 male/female electrical connections, 2 to the master door switch.one to the power/heated mirror, 1 to power locks. 5. don't unsnap them yet.with a test light you can check for battery voltage. on the master door switch the blue/black tracer wire should be hot[12 volt dc]. at all times. put one end in the backside and the other to a bolt or rivet on the door. the light should come on.next with one end on the blue/black tracer and one on white/black tracer rocker driver side up/down switch, the light should come on.there are only 13 wires on the master window switch 2black wires are ground, 2blue/black tracer[hot] 1 red/blue tracer should be [hot] when you unlock the window lock rocker switch.know the passanger and back seat switches should work. switch it to lock and they should only work from the driver side master switch.the 8 wires left are 2 for each window one up one down.try this with a friend it makes it easyer. good luck doug.

1993 Bighorn Passenger window not working


There could be a lock controller somewhere that is not working.
I don't have a wiring diagram for your truck.

Generally, the power window motors are grounded thru the doors, or the switches provide ground. In your case the motors are probably grounded thru the doors.
The master switch "overrides" the door switch so you have extra wires that do the same thing. The E wire probably gives the door switch power and the A and C are up and down. The B and D are override circuits from the master that bypass the door switch.
Sometimes the motor is grounded thru the switch then thru the door.

Power windows locks and mirrors


Sounds like the master switch is not plugged in properly, this is the switch in the driver's door.

All windows except the driver's side are not working.


First, if the driver's window is working, there is no need to waste your time looking for fuses. ALL of the windows are powered by the SAME fuse.

The first thing I recommend checking is the window "lock" switch on the master switch. If it is in the "lock" position, none of the other windows will work (it is designed to do that)

Other than that, you need to check for power and ground at all of the other door switches. The BLUE/BLACK wire at each of the switches should have battery voltage anytime the ignition switch is in the ON position. If they do not, the wire is broken between the splice near the driver's door and the right front door. Both the RED and the GREEN wires at each switch should have continuity to ground anytime the master switch is at rest with the "lock" switch in the unlock position (the lock switch breaks these grounds to "lock" the windows and prevent them from being operated).

2005 Murano windows open by themselves


I had that happen too and found out that if you hold the unlock button down on your FOB for about 4-5 seconds then it will roll down the front windows. It's actually a feature, not a problem. You may have accidentally mashed something up against the FOB while it was in your pocket and you were within range of the car. That's what I did. Freaked me out the first time I walked out in the driveway and both front windows were down and I know I didn't leave them open.
