Power Window Issue

Asked by Mar 01, 2017 at 10:05 PM about the 2012 Mitsubishi Galant ES

Question type: General

Today I noticed something a little different with my driver side down power
window switch.  The Passenger Side Back window will no longer open.  The
Passenger side front window will roll down sometimes but I have to have
driver side door open to roll it back up.  Now here's where it gets very
weird, the back door driver side window has no problem rolling down or up
but when I roll that window up the Passenger Side front window will roll
down.  Can anyone please try to explain what could be going on please.  I
have no idea and two friends that are DIY Mechanics so to speak can't
figure out what could be causing this

pull the switch in you arm rest and make sure no bare wires are shorting over to another window. if plastic is melted just get another switch

Phil_Deez2 I have replaced the switch and it didn't seem to do anything at all. Same issues. I have pulled out all 4 switches and nothing seems to be faulty with the wires at all. No rips, tears or melting by any means that I can see. Just not really sure where to go next if you could point me in a new direction that would be great. About a week ago the fuse relay in the engine quit for the power windows, replaced that and nothing changed with the switch either.

make sure you find the correct fuse in the fuse panel...no way all the windows could fail at the same time. could be more than one fuse too.
