Q: Power windows won't operate

asked by on

The driver's window and rear passenger's side window won't operate.

You could have a bad master switch or both motors are bad. Either one is common on this vehicle since it is over 10 years old. I recommend having a qualified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, determine why your windows are not working. Both window motors will need to be checked to see if the window switch is sending power to their respective motors.
