    QuestionQuestion on power window inop

    Hi guys, drivers side rear window is totally dead (in up position thank God), doesn't work from either the drivers panel or the door itself.

    I went through the Tech Tips, not much on Seville specifically but my Google-fu apparently stinks. All the other windows work fine, I went to put down all the windows (usually do for a minute to get the 9 billion degrees of Florida heat out of the car to help the A/C work a little quicker) and this one just died. No sound or anything. All the other works fine so I doubt it's something as easy as a fuse huh? I figure all windows would be tied to one fuse and the owners manual pretty much hinted at that.

    I realize you can't diagnose anything, but I'm figuring on removing the door panel and taking a look this Saturday and just wanted to know any tips/tricks or potential things to look for.

    Again, sorry for asking a question that you've probably answered and I just can't find it in Tech Tips but as always, any help is greatly appreciated.

    I would check the wiring from the jamb to the door, sometimes they chaf/break.

    First thing i would try would be another switch.
    You can get the whole panel cheap.
    I have replaced/worked on just about every drivers door switch panel we have.
