Well, I took the ground bus apart as stated in the tech article, and they were as clean and without corosion since the day it came off the assembly line. Both sides were fine. Inexplicably, I now have driver side front and rear operation, not passenger side. What should I check for now?

If the driver'* control works, but not the others, it'* likely the connector or switch in your door. You can get it out of there without pulling the door panel. Gently pry it out and reseat the connector a couple times.

If that doesn't work, go to the wrecker and get a replacement switch, or post here in WANTED.

All 4 doors and windows go through the driver'* master switch. They won't work if it doesn't.

Bring it over to Austin, I'll fix it.

It sounds as though you might have 2 bad window motors. It does happen as my van'* pass window was working fine when i got it and now it'* dead. I have a new motor, but haven't installed it.

You know I will take you up on that. I have to take my daughter to Texas State for the fall semester (Bobcat Dad). Please drop me a PM and I will give you my number. I am at my wits end with these windows.

I don't see anyone chiming in on my problem with my power windows not working. I was content with the three windows not working, but then the drivers side stopped working today, so I had to tackle the problem. Can anyone tell me how the circuit breaker works? My guess is I have a bad circuit breaker. I couldn't find one at any of the auto part stores, so I am going to have to go to the dealer.

If the breaker goes bad..remove it and it should reset in a few minutes.

Having not needed to deal with window issues yet..I'm somewhat unsure what to have you do.

Do any of the windows operate from their individual switches?

It appears power is distributed to the master and all doors from the one relay/fuse. Therefore if you have power at one..you should have power at all.
