Power Window System

Print

The power windows can be operated only when the ignition switch is in the ON position. Operation of the windows is controlled by the main switch located in the master control panel, on the armrest of the driver's door. When the main switch is OFF, only the driver's door window can be opened and closed. When the main switch is ON, all door windows can be opened and closed by the driver, using the appropriate switch in the master control panel. The passenger windows can be opened by depressing the switch located on each passenger door panel.
