What is a Power Window Switch and where is it Located?
Your vehicle’s power window switch is a main component to your power window system. Today, almost all vehicles are equipped with windows powered by the magic of electricity instead of windows that have to be operated manually with the use of crank handles. This makes raising and lowering windows as easy as pushing this switch. When engaged, the power window switch sends an electric current to the window motor, which is attached to the window regulator, activating it. In turn, the electric motor then powers a series of gears that lends motion to the linkage of the window regulator, which actually lifts the window glass up and down according to the direction that is indicated by the operation of the window switch.
Individual power window switches are found on the door panel armrests of each door, and they each control the movement of the window for the specific door they are located on. The master power window switch, which controls all of the windows in the vehicle, is commonly located on the driver side door panel armrest, but in some vehicles it is mounted on the center console.
Power Window Switch Failure
While typically quite durable and reliable, window switches are subject to general wear over time because of the fact that power windows are used so frequently, leading them to break. Excess moisture from leaving your car or truck’s windows open may also cause the switch to become defective. Some symptoms of a bad power window switch include intermittent operation or, no operation of the power window from the switch at all.
