Alright, here’s a doozy/head spinner/hangover in the making: I just moved to Bloomington, Indiana and the very first weekend here I broke the left rear power window regular and possibly motor in her 2004 Grand Prix. I figured, not a problem. I ordered a brand new out of box power window regulator for the left rear, installed it, but when it came to connecting it to the cabling I noticed its dead in the water. The front driver’s switch won’t work, nor will the left rear switch work. I tried every other switch in the car. Everything else is working fine except for the button on the driver’s switch that controls the left rear and the left rear switch itself.
That said, I’m in a bit of a pickle. I have this brand new part that isn’t working. Is it possible I have a wiring failure? Is it a fuse issue? Or, worst case, do I have two bad switches (this seems the least likely).
Any advice or fun poking at my misfortune would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Things I’ve already tried
-Going in to a Napa to see if they’d help diagnose. The guy just told me it sounds like a fuse issue. Is it possible that a fuse would go bad and only cause an issue for one window?
-Checking all cabling to make sure it’s connected correctly.
