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 belt tension is correct, then the next item to check is the alternator itself. You now have two choices - you can test the alternator yourself with a simple test using a voltmeter, or you can have the test performed by a professional. If you choose to do the test yourself, then you will need a DC voltmeter, or a multimeter. Such a unit can be purchased at most auto supply stores, hardware stores, department stores, home improvement stores, etc.
