Questions and Answers

Dodge Durango Rear power Windows

Q. I have 2000 Dodge Durango, 5.2 liter engine, with about 35,000 miles on it. Recently, both rear power windows stopped working at the same time. I looked in both fuse blocks, interior and engine, and could not find a fuse for the power windows, but I checked each one anyway and none looked blown. Do you know if these windows are fused separately?

Neither the master window control, or individual window controls, work. The front windows work just fine. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Michael

A. Putting aside the possibility that both rear power window motors went bad at the same time, that leaves the drivers power window switch as the only possibility. Here is the wiring diagram for the power window circuit.

Using an ohmmeter, here is how to check the drivers door switch. Disconnect the battery negative cable. Remove the power window switch unit from the door trim panel and unplug the wire harness connector from the switch unit.

NOTE: Because this switch contains active electronic elements for the Auto-down feature, this switch function cannot be checked with a continuity test. If the problem being diagnosed involves this function, reconnect the switch to its wire harness connector, connect the battery negative cable and turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Back probe the wire harness connector cavity for switch pin number 8 and check for the proper switch output while actuating the switch. With the switch in the Up position, there should be continuity to ground at pin 8. With the switch in the Down position, there should be battery voltage at pin 8.
