1999 Isuzu Amigo (two door model) Problem: The master switch panel operates the driver door window down, but not up. Is this typically a problem with the switch unit, or is there a remote relay involved. I took the membrane switch unit apart and cleaned it. No change. I was able to get the window up by applying power directly to the motor power connector. Note: I am a trained electro-mechanical technician. Any history on what fails with this master PCB type switch assembly? I do not have a powe

2002 suburban, replaced window regulator and window worked fine for about a week now the window when the switch is activated to move down and in auto down mode it goes all the way down and the motor doesn't stop , it continues to make noise like the motor is still activated. You have to bump the switch to de activate it. When used out of auto mode it goes up and down fine but I'm concerned that the motor or drive system is damaged from staying on at the bottom

My 1992 Grand marquis windshield wipers park in the up position when I shut them off. Is this a control switch or motor problem? During delay operation they pause in the down position. I replaced the motor with a used motor - the problem remains.

Windshield wipers won't operate except when the "wash" button is pushed. The switch has been tested, found good, but replaced anyway and it still doesn't work. The fuse and relay are OK. The wiper motor will operate when a jumper wire is attached to either the low speed or high speed hot wire. This is to say that the problem is that no current is reaching the wiper motor. Is there a wiper control module of some sort?


Yes it is called the body control module and is notorious for going bad, don't try to save any money buying it in a junkyard since these modules are PART number specific to each van. The dealer will have to flash it which means you will spend about 9 ... 1996 Dodge Caravan

The driver's side power seat in our Lincoln Town Car is in the full back position and will not move. The problem started as a ratching sound in the motor and the seat moving in jerks rather than the normal smooth operation. The switch was working because the seat was trying to move. The fuse is also good. After reading several of the previoius posts for this same problem it sounds like I need to remove the seat and power seat transmisssion. How can I get instructions on how to do this?

Power window does not operate driver's side front and rear windows. I believe the switch in the door panel is not working. We were able to crank the motor down (by hand) when the window was down so it would raise to it full position. I would like to run a jumper through the electrical plugs bypassing the switch but I don't know which leads to connect. If I remember correctly, there were 4 top rows and 4 bottom rows in the plug.

The electric window,on the passenger side, in my 91 Firebird is not going up or down. i tested for conductivity and the switch seems to be working. I think the motor is damaged (i know that the fuses are fine) how could I remove or replace the motor? Also i noticed broken glass in the bottom of the door, assuming that the window was replaced could it be hooked up incorrectly and how could i fix this? any ideas of other issues causing this problem?

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport with electric windows, the drivers side window is down and will not go back up. Is there a way to check the switch and the motor to see if they are working? Could it be a fuse? I have no problem operating the passenger window from the drivers control switch.

I have recently converted my suburban's NP246 AutoCrap to a manual shift NP261HD. I am using the existing button to activate the front axle for now but I want to wire a solo switch and light. My Problem. The Actuator has 4 pins. Two grounds. One 12v and one 5v. How do I convert this to a basic switch? Is the power constant to the motor when off and constant when on? I am guessing the 12v retracts the actuator and the 5v releases it. I do know the actuator stays locked into whatever position it i

I have a 1988 930 turbo. The left hand power window will only operate down wards when activated. With the switch in the off position (both LHS and RHS slave) the power window motor over heats.

My 2003 Ford Focus SE with Ztec 2.0 idles really poorly when the motor reaches full operating temperature. I have replaced the plugs and wires, there does not seem to be any vacuum leaks. The check engine light goes on and off from time to time. The only code that can be found is p1780 tcs- out of self test range- torque converter lock out switch. Could that be causing the rough idle? Someone told me maybe it is the onboard computer causing the problem. What do you think?
