Q: Back power windows not working

asked by on

Looking at the wiring diagram for you vehicle, it looks like the problem is probably in the driver’s master switch. The only thing the back windows share is a common ground through this switch. It’s also possible (though unlikely) that both rear power window motors failed independently. A trained professional, such as a one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose your rear windows to have them working them.
