Without looking at it I believe it is probably inside the front door. Remove the switch on the passenger front door (switch assembly and check for current to the window switch itself. A jumper supplies power from the front to back.

Windows do not work from either switch


OK. If I am reading correctly the drivers side door switches will raise and lower all the windows, front and back. But not of the individual door switches, passenger side and read doors, will not raise or lower their respective window, right? First, make sure there is not a child safety lockout engaged preventing the windows from being opened from their switch. If that is OK, then the problem is power going to the master switch on the drivers side front door is not supplying power to the other windows. When that occurs the problem is most often in the drivers side door (if fuses are good). To trace the problem you will need a volt meter to test the current when the switch is engaged, a # 2 philips head screwderver to remove the drivers side door panel, and a person who knows how to use both.

Chantley, did you find an answer? I have the same problem. Thanks! Jefrf
