Power Window System



Diagnosis & Testing

Perform the following inspections/tests:



Ensure that the battery is fully charged.
 
Ensure that the battery cables are clean and tight.
 
Inspect for any open fuses.
 
Ensure that the grounds are clean, tight, and in the correct location.
 
Inspect the easily accessible systems or the visible system components for obvious damage or conditions that could cause the concern. This would include checking to ensure that all connections/connectors are fully seated and secured.
 
Inspect for aftermarket devices that could affect the operation of the system.
 
Search for applicable service bulletins.

    NOTE
    Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
