Diagnosis & Testing

Specific to:

Any diagnosis of the power window system should begin with the use of the scan tool. For information on the use of the scan tool, refer to the appropriate Diagnostic Service Manual.

The diagnosis found here applies only to the driver power window switches. If the problem being diagnosed is an inoperative power window switch illumination lamp, but the power window switch operates as designed, replace the faulty door power window switch.

For complete circuit diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2.  
  3. Remove the driver power window switch from the door trim panel.
  4.  
  5. Check the driver door power window switch continuity.

  1. Remove door trim panel.

  3. Connect positive (+) lead from a test battery to either of the two motor terminals.
  4.  
  5. Connect negative (-) lead from test battery to remaining motor terminal.
  6.  
  7. The motor should now rotate in one direction to either move window up or down.
    1. If window happens to already be in full UP position and motor is connected so as to move it in UP direction no movement will be observed.
    2.  
    3. Likewise, motor connected to move window in DOWN direction no movement will be observed if window is already in full DOWN position.
    4.  
    5. Reverse battery leads and window should now move. If window does not move, replace motor.
    6.  

  8.  
  9. If window moved completely up or down, the test leads should be reversed one more time to complete a full window travel inspection.
  10.  
  11. If window does not move, check to make sure that it is free.
  12.  
  13. It is necessary that the window be free to slide up and down in the glass channels. If the window is not free to move up and down, the window lift motor will not be able to move the glass.
  14.  
  15. To determine if the glass is free, disconnect the regulator from the glass lift plate. Remove the two attaching screws, and slide the window up and down by hand.
