Intermittent electrical problem

I was noticing this morning, that my left front and right rear windows didn’t work. Also each of my two side mirrors would only adjust to the left but not to the right. When I try to do the non-working windows the dome light would dim a little bit when I push the button, but no sound or anything.

This is an intermittent problem. They usually work, but sometimes they don’t.

Look at the wires between the door and the body. That is a common source for this type of issue.

update: When I got in the car this afternoon, everything worked except for the driver’s window.

Check the wires as they go between the car and the door.
