Red face Windows Switches Inopearble

So, I've had the windows switch in/out, and disconnected/reconnected several times painting the center dash bezel, and replacing the VAC control bezel.
Now, this last time, the window switches for the 2005 Dream Cruiser vert do not want to work.

I have searched the fuse diagrams under the hood and dash.....but, nothing labeled for the "window switch".
The only thing close that I could find researching old threads was this....

Pwr Windows/Blower Fan/Back-up lights/Rear Window Defogger/Air Bag Light

Everything else near the dash, lights, wipers, HVAC controls...all work fine.
Any thoughts???

Frank,

I'm up in Virginia right now and don't have my Owners Manual for reference but I believe there's a relay (one of two) that are on top of the fuses in the interior fuse box and it's labeled "Power Windows". They are silver (at least in mine) so check that.

As CREWZIN says, the power windows are protected by a large silver plug-in circuit breaker at the (likely) top left of the dash fuse-block.
Could also possibly be fuse #3 (40 amp) in the PDC.

Check Interior fuse panel 'Circuit Breaker No. 2 (20A)',on the top left.....There should also be a 'Spare' next to it on the top right(maybe not).

Thanks Crewzin and Santah,
Yes, there is one silver breaker at the top of the fuse box.
2 Problems....I 1) have no spare.....and 2) the fuse looks OK, as it is a black opaque plastic.
I don't see any way to tell if it is bad.

Randy,
Thanks for the diagram.
Just like mine!

Not to worry....you can't insult this idiot!


Yup! Had it in & out twice.
I may try it again with some dielectric grease.

Unhappy Re: Windows Switches Inopearble

WHY ME?????

So, all the fuses look good.
I go back and pop out the switch panel and.....

Holy Crap!
The switch has come apart!
Obviously the problem.

But, the case and cover are part way off and jammed, with the switch poles leaning sideways!!!

When I do get this thing apart, I am going to need someone to tell me what hole numbers the contact blades should be coming out of!

I can assume that the poles/spades should be straight up vertically.
But, that may be assuming too much.









WHY MEEEEEEE????

Ouch!Looks like at least 2 of the spades might need a little soldering.
