The commonest cause for electrical faults in cars is the 'short circuit' which typically is caused by the so-called 'clashes' in the wiring system. Unless you are professionally qualified in the field of auto vehicle wiring (or mechantronics), you are advised against attempting to carry out auto electrical repairs on faults emanating from 'short circuits.' Getting things wrong here could, in the worst case scenario, see your car up in fire!
Replacing a Faulty Switch: Locate the window switch panel. This is the button used to operate your window. It is almost always on the door, however, they are rarely found on the center console. Remove the window switch panel. Be careful not to scratch up the door panel while removing the window switch, as it often requires prying. Using a shop rag or piece of cardboard under your prying tool can help. Unplug the wiring connectors from the switch. You will need to test these connectors to make sure that they are providing the appropriate 12 volts to your switch.
If your vehicle is showing symptoms such as dim lighting, "dragging" during engine starts, or frequent dead batteries, then the charging system may be at fault. Although it may seem obvious, the first item to test is the battery itself. A defective battery in an otherwise healthy electrical system can cause any of the above mentioned symptoms. Testing the battery is a simple procedure, and can performed quickly by most auto parts stores, repair shops, dealers, and even some large department stores.
Use your multi-meter to probe each connector. Set the multi-meter for DC volts and put the prongs of your multi-meter into the connector. It should read 12 volts. Check the wiring on any switch that has a low voltage reading. Tighten any loose connections, and clear away any corrosion. Test another switch. Take a switch from another door and plug it into the connectors on the malfunctioning door. If you are able to operate your window using this switch, then the original is bad and will need to be replaced. Buy a new switch. Contact your dealership or favorite parts store and get a new window switch. Install the new window switch. This can be done by plugging the connectors into the switch and popping the switch back into the door panel.
