Default Stupid question about windows..UPDATE

By any chance are the fuses for the power windows split for the left side and right side? I haven't even checked them yet which is why I am throwing it out there...but both my passenger side windows do not go down. It'* been that way since Saturday. I just fixed one problem this weekend and now another one follows...

I'm thinking this must be a simple problem...

Closest diagram I found is for a 94 SSE. It shows all windows protected by the same 30 amp circuit breaker.

Edit - Did you try using the switches on each of the passenger side doors. Do all the switches feel like they're returning to the center position?

I figured it was one fuse. It'* weird why the two right ones do not work now The passenger rear window didn't work one day a long time ago, but it started working again a day later. Never had a problem again until Saturday, now both do not work

I guess it'* not a big deal. Still frustrating though.

Just want to make sure you saw that I edited my post. See if all the window switches are returning to the center position.

I'll try that tomorrow. I was going to try the other switches on the way home from work but traffic was hell and I got distracted. If they do not return to center what should I do? ( I do know that the switches on the driver'* switch panel all return to center)

if a switch dosent have contact (it could be the drivers or the passengers) the window wont go down....it could be as simple as the switch

Pete..pull you drivers master swtich and clean the contacts on the bottom. Most likely that'* the issue. Could also be the two switches in each door.

Checked this AM, all switches return to center, and when I hit the switches to move the windows down I can hear a slight 'tap' or 'click' from the doors. Still just a bad connection?

No...it'* more work now..the click would be the relay under the dash.. Do you think the motors are trying to work?

I didn't see your earlier post saying to clean the master switch connectors...but yeah, I hear a faint click which would normally lead me to believe the switch is fine. I don't remember if I heard the click from the switches on those two doors though, just the master. The motors better not be dead...if this was my driver'* window I swear I'd break the damn thing out of spite.
