  • I think 1 fuse works for all your windows. either they all work or none do (if it's the fuse). If only one doesn't work it could be. The window is frozen shut (heat the car up. eventaully it should let go). The motor has burned out (i've never seen this happen) or a wire to the motor has broken or the connector on that wire is corroded (this is possible as water can get into the door when it rains/snows especially if the gaskets are bad. To test the motor you can run it off the battery with no fuse in the line ... If nothing happens then it's bad. These motors aren't worth rebuilding. You can buy a new motor or get another used one from a junk yard. If I were you I would check the fuse first then I would open the door and check the connections(a dummy light will determine if electricity is getting to the motor when you move the switch.
  • I would check your fuse box to see if something has blown. But the most likely cause is that the electric motor has burned out. These are located in the door and are relatively easy to replace. You just need to take off the inner door lining and replace the unit. It is normally the unplug the old one, plug in the new one. If not, you may need to get some wire connectors and connect about 3-4 wires. You can find Electric Window Motor from any auto shops motor or go to a wreckers and get some. Please Note - If all 3 windows have stopped working all at the same time, then I would get the wiring checked over by an auto electrician which can be costly.

  • Please don't tell me it is an Alero or Grand-Am. the car regulator's in these were made cheap and can be expensive.
