Electric Window issue Sign In

Passenger front electric window has stopped working, replaced switch but it still isn't working. Can one switch in the master panel stop working while the others continue to work? Mazda 6 2009 model.

Yes, they can but what makes you think it's a switch problem at all?

Test the thing. Can be done at the switch you didn't need.

Simple dumb test is get into a totally dark, quiet spot (garage or plain night) best engine off, power to it enabled, push for "up" while incan bulb overhead light is on watch for it to dim or not. Noise of a struggle points to needing a motor built into regulator test again last wires to it,

That test is an all-time fav of mine. I do that before bringing out tools or off my location (road calls) etc.

Now that means (to me) no draw of current to that motor. It could still be stupid like a bad plug inside door so time to take panel off.

Can you reach with a 12v power supply to just that plug? I'll never know if or what type of a plastic cover if there or paper is OE but comes off there are holes inside metal of doors to get at stuff - some a real pest to reach.

Regulator if when called for is probably riveted in but still a test if you see the body of the motor on that door. Hit it with like a socket extension and hammer don't bust it a strong love tap. Test for the motor taking power again UP dim that light!

If yes try down just a tad it can't be trusted yet if all the way down be prepared to have an open window till fixed.

Look now for availability/price of those and any wait time to get it.

Motor alone is now rare no doubt sealed for working on it alone or sending just it out for repair they are crimped usually not bolted together.

What happens is they get wet if only dew and not used is worse on door motor things.

Used door who know what it was exposed to before taking a whole door no doubt.

Who's issue is this. If a body shop paid to fix the damage and within time they should be and let them deal with where they got the door,

Good luck DIY if you do or what to expect from a shop,

Tom

Stop patting yourself on the back for a moment. All that proves is there is current draw on the other three. It doesn't tell you anything about "why".

It can still be wiring, motor or either switch. Nothing has been isolated yet.

Unsaid in my massive missives: This works, with no special anything folks who come here don't have is clear. I did say to right to the wires without a car involved at all is pretty f*cking sure - NOTHING IS SURE, Tom
