Default black box inside drivers door

Hi my name is Tim, and I am a victim of bad regulators.

I opened up my driver'* door, and found the black box that all the electricals plug into.
Is this a control module??

I have already replaced the master switch, it helped for a short time, now I'm back to square 1. The window went down one day at work and wouldn't go back up.

I took apart the door and I noticed the black box was quite loose. I basically just tightened up the nuts and presto it started working again.

Now however I am back to square 1 again. Is it the motor or what?? I have my power mirrors, but no windows. Why won't the passenger window go down??

I can hear a faint click when I try to operate the windows, but that'* it.

I did a search but really didn't find anything helpful. The windows are all up so it'* no big deal but it does perplex me.

Thanks,

Tim

Tim, the faint click indicates that the control modules are powered up which is a good thing. When you hear the faint click, the control module is switching power & ground to raise or lower the window. Check the 30a ckt bkr for the pwr windows is not tripped in the rear fuse block.

Tim.. Looks like Archon is pointing you in the direction that this is a bad window regulator. Within the thread he linked you to, should be instructions for a low cost, home done fix.

Tim, I assumed that none of your pwr windows operated. My mistake, disregard my previous post about the 30a bkr.
