Power Window Problems..

hey has anyone had any window problems? i got a 99 altima gxe and the windows arent working which i heard are common. when i put the window lock on the driver side window works fine. when i take the window lock off the windows only move an inch and than stop and i can hear a click under the dash. when it click i can move another inch and than stops. first i thought it was the motor so i changed the passenger side and did the same thing. than i figured it was the window relay that i found under the dash cause it was getting hot and it would click every few seconds so i replaced that from the dealership and did the same thing. so im thinkin its the whole unit the relay connects too or i heard a loose wire somewhere. has anyone had this problem before? how hard would it be to change the whole unit that connects to the relay? anyone help please thanks!

It sounds like an current overload that is tripping the main circuit breaker which protects the power window circuit. According to the schematics, it seems like the problem is coming from the driver's side master control switch assembly. The assembly cannot be fix, as far as I know, so you're need to replace it entirely. There are new ones cheap on eBay. You won't have to pull the door panel apart since the switch assembly pops right out. And it's like a 5 minute job. There's a YouTube and a couple of threads around here on how to replace it. Good luck.

Ok so got my replacement switch sat. looked a little different than the one I had but still plugged in the same way so I hooked it up and nothing.. still doesn't work right, nothing changed. so I'm assuming there's a loose wire or connection somewhere but don't know where to start, heard the driver door wires get wet and stuff but idk. anyone know what I should do??

Sorry to hear that didn't fix it. Do you know how to use a multimeter so we can run a few tests?

We need it to do some resistance and voltage checks on the wiring.
