SOURCE: Front power windows work intermittently, fuses are good and has a new main control switch.

Has the window motor been replaced? This is a classic symptom of defective window motor. Next time this happens hit the door panel, if the window starts working again that confirms the problem is the motor. This is not fool proof but in most cases the motor will restart, hit the panel down low a few times.

No power to power windows

Have you actually checked for power at the driver's master switch?
I don't think there would be a window relay, there is probably a power window circuit breaker in the instrument panel fuse box.
If no windows work, pull the master switch out and check for one hot wire with key on. If none, check for broken wires in driver's door opening. Your ground for the windows will be in that group of wires too. Both must work for windows to operate. If you have power and good ground at the master switch, and no windows work, probably a bad master switch.

Power windows relay

There is none. Power windows come from a circuit breaker in the fuse panel. If no windows work, look for a hot wire to the driver's window master switch, with key on. It may be a violet wire, and the ground for the windows originates at the master switch and runs back into the cabin to a nearby ground. Check for broken wires in the door opening. Likely either the power wire or the ground may be broken, and need splicing back together. If the wires are good and you have power to the switch and the ground is good, it is possible that the master switch may be bad.

1990 Corolla. None of Power windows operate from master switch at driver's door, or from local switches at each door itself. Cannot find fuse labeled for power windows (ie PW). All fuses read good

Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

The most common cause of this issue is a bad master switch on the driver side door. Another common cause is a broken power wire that powers up the master switch. CHeck the wries on the connector of the master switch with a 12 vlt DC testlight, with the key on. If you have power, the wire is good, and the switch is probably bad.

My power windows dont work

First I would check the fuses if there good then make sure you have power to the switch.You can check that with a test light on the main connector to the door.If you have power to the switch Then make sure that the master lock for the windows is off.Then if that doesn't work check for continuity across the switch.The main thing I would check are the fuses and the master window lock first if none of the windows are working.

None of the power windows work.No local or master controls work.

start by checking fuses, then relays. if the main switch goes on driver's door goes out then none of them will work.... i would recommend a new switch not a used one.

Cost of repairning windows

Hi there,

Well if none of your windows work more then likely it is a master window switch witch would be the one big switch on your drivers front door. Have you tried using the switch on the other doors to see if any of the windows work? If none of the switches work try checking the fuses and relay's first. A fuse or relay is easy and less then $20 for the part and you can do yourself just read the fuse box to locate the part. If you need a master switch call a junk yard the switch can be less then $80 there just pay someone a few dollars to install it. If the problem only related to single window then it sounds like the window motors are bad. On average, the price of a reconditioned window motor (check O'reilly or Autozone) installed on that car is about $150-$200 per window. Please post comments if you need more help or information.........

Good Luck!!
