Power window issues (no, not the reset problem)

I've read countless threads and other websites but not finding any solutions that don't involve the reset procedure (which yes I've tried that too). My power windows on my 2006 6 3.0 are operating sporadically. Previously only the driver rear would open (using both power switches). I disconnected the battery and did the reset procedure attempt on every window but only the passenger front window would open . Today now the rear driver decided to start opening too. I haven't been able to open the drivers front window in many months despite attempts to reset and checking the fuse. Many months ago I could open every window except the drivers front.



I'm assuming my next step would be to replace the master switch module on the drivers door - are there electrical components in there that would prevent windows from working even from their own switches? Or any other suggestions to resolve this?


Thanks!

I'm not sure if the master has any effect on the individual switches but my initial guess would be 'no.'

Have you noticed any other sporadic electrical nuances? It could be that a ground or something has come undone/loose and you're getting the odd behavior from that.

When you say you tried every window, was that from the master switch or from each individual door switch?
Question is, when a window doesn't work from the master switch, does the individual switch work? If yes, then you master switch could be bad, otherwise is a bad connection to whatever feeds the window circuit. I'd start by the fuse box and relays.

No other electrical issues with the car - it's been a great car!

I do try from all the individual door switches. I do believe the door switches and master switch are synced - both work or both do not work. Is there more than one fuse that feeds the windows? I only found one but did I miss any others?

It is not the fuse. Fuses don't come back to life if they are burnt.
Check the connections feeding that fuse/circuit.

Well it ended up being simply stuck windows. Took the door panels off, removed the motor, and gave it a spin. Dropped the window a little by hand, put it back up, reinstalled the motor, and tada it works!

So if anybody finds this thread in the future and you hear clicking from your door when trying to lower your windows...they just might be stuck.
