You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

SOURCE: Windows won't work

Your power feed to the window switch panel is a big wire loom that goes through the driver door. Check the connection at the door jamb. I've seen the plug slowly come apart just from the door opening and closing. You should have a power window fuse at the fuse block under the dash as well. The power to all the windows goes to the main switch at the driver door first then goes to the rest of the windows. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: broken wire in drivers door for power windows

Yes. You can remove the inside door panel fairly easily. There should be several (2-6) plastic covers or cap (behind door handle, where the door is covered with the dash, as well as other hiding spots). Remove these cap and the screws/bolts behind them. After you have found and removed all of the screws/bolts you should be able to lift up and the door panel and remove it. it may be a little tough, but DO NOT force it, you may have missed one of the screw/bolts, look again. When you get the door panel off, be careful that you don't rip the wires from your electric controls (pwr windows/locks).

Why my passenger window don't work ?

If neitrher the driver's door master switch nor the passenger door window switch wont operate the window, and the lock-out button is not on, then likely the passenger door inner panel has to come off to investigate. But first, check the wiring going into the passenger door for a broken wire. Also check the wiring coming out of the driver's door. If you see nothing wrong, pull off the passenger door panel and check for any wires loose from the window switch down to the motor. You can hotwire the window motor with a spare battery set beside the door there, to verify the motor is bad. If it is bad, you have to remove the glass, then remove the window regulator with motor attached, in order to replace the motor.

1998 Buick Regal the windows stopped working on all 4 doors. Ocasionally I would press the widow switch and they would work. I replaced the main switch on the drivers door and they still don't wor

ALL the windows share a common ground, this could be your problem. The ground wire originates at the driver's switch and goes back through the harness to the door, and into the cabin where I think the black ground wire may ground on a frame or bracket in the left kick panel. Just after it comes in from the door. You'd have to look behind the kick panel (foot well) covering to look for the ground screw. There could be a couple other ground wires there too. Or take your meter and check the integrity of the ground wire at the switch. Either use the ohm function or do a voltage drop test to check the ground.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 2500, the passenger window switches don't work

Not uncommon, the master window switch on the driver's door goes wonky. Mine had same problem (2003 1500 4.7L long cab) and simply replacing the master switch fixed both bad passenger switch intermittent problems. Easy swap, cheap at the dealer.

I need to know the power source for the driverside master window control unit. is it afuse or relay? and where is it and its not in the fusebox underdash---driverside

Hello: The power source is a circuit breaker located in the fuse box under the driver side dash. There are 2 circuit breakers (about 1 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. The top one is for the windows, swap the two breakers, If the windows work then you have a bad breaker. If windows don't work the remove the window switch assembly from the door. on the back side of the window switch assembly you will have a heavy pink wire, that is power to the windows. with a test light check to see if you have power. If you don't the it could be a broken wire where the wire comes from the body to the door. If no broken wire then it could be a burnt fusible link that comes off the starter. ALSO BELOW the window circuit breaker is a black connector that supplies power to the windows, the trunk release and the sunroof if equipped. This information straight out of a 1988 CADILLAC service manual. Check that black connector for burnt wires and make sure its plugged in tight. Do any of the windows work from the individual switches in the door.

Doors wont lock. Windows won't work. Car thinks the door is locked because when I open the hood alarm goes off. Security light is flashing when doors are closed. Locks don't engage when driving...

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door. Could be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released. It could also be the body control module.

Drivers side window won't go up or down

Solution will be:

1. Fuse (if there's a fuse that controls only that window...unlikely)
2. Switch. (if the switch on the door in question nor the driver's side control wont work, it's not the switch.)
3. Motor (this is the hardest of the 3 to fix, and it probably the most likely cause)

If it's the motor, I would try to find one from a junk yard and then pay somoene reputable to put it on. Buying it at the junk yard will save you some cash, but paying someone to install it will be well worth the avoided headaches! There's just not much room to work within a door panel and I've spent hours replacing one on my 2003 Mercury Mountaineer.

Good luck!

Check for a 40 amp blown fuse for the BCM this controls those 2 unit. If this checks ok disconnect the BCM module and plug back in this will reset it the BCM is located under the Drivers side kick panel against the firewall. If it work after the BCM reset replace the BCM it will work only temporaraly.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!
