    Wow. Didn't even know this was a thing! I've had the batteries disconnected for hours at a time... and the windows worked just fine before this.

    I'll try that after work tonight.

    And just so ya'll don't think that I'm a complete & total moron:
    So far I have done my own installs on the TRD PRO grille w/ Raptor lights,
    OGE split dual battery system,
    PowerTrays w/ BlueSeas fuse block & power blocks,
    BlueSeas Below Deck power panel in the rear bed (with the wiring running up to the PowerTrays.)
    Hardwired the Blackvue 900s-2CH camera system, with B124 battery and PMP.
    AND... I was about to start the install on the SwitchPros SP9100.

    But this window thing is kicking my ass!

    I need to be thankful that the window isn't rolling DOWN, instead of isn't rolling UP.

    Thanks. I actually did not check fuses... because the window does roll down using the passenger-side button, and I wrenched my back the last time I got under there, and my thinking was that if it were the fuse that blew, the window wouldn't work at all. Right?

    Now I'm wondering...

    Just re-read your original post. All windows work but only 3 from the drivers side panel? If so it's not a fuse. Still sounds like the connection in the drivers door arm panel to me.

    I remember reading this awhile back, but can’t find it. Did anyone have an issue with the drivers side light coming on when locking the door, but not when unlocking the door?

    No time to deal with it tonight; have online meetings with our overseas teams.

    Maybe tomorrow.

    Thanks for all the suggestions from everyone!

    You guys are GENIUSES!

    The above, with the video below, helped to fix both problems--at the same time!!! It seems to make a difference that you have to run each window through a full open & close cycle (4 seconds each way) --using the switch at each window--beginning with the driver's window.

    The passenger window now works again, from the driver-side button... AND the auto-open/auto-close works again as well.

    I wish I could buy you all a beer!

    Thank you!

    This place is the best . I never would have guessed that. I was thinking a damaged wire in the door as well. Nice job guys.

    Totally! Me too! I was ready to rip apart the door, and the boot between the door and the truck...

    Not in a million years would I have thought that it could be something like this.

    Thank you very much for those instructions! I would have never considered that it could be something like that.

    In the myriad of parts installations I've done over the last few weeks (OGE split dual battery kit, PowerTrays kit, etc.) I've disconnected the truck batteries for long periods (6+ hours at a time) and never had a problem.

    No problem. And yeah, it's strange. As I mentioned I've never had to do it on my truck. Only ever had to do it once on my other car out of probably 100 times disconnecting the battery. On the other hand, I did a dashcam hardwire on my brother's Subaru and had to do the re-learn for the windows and rear hatch after one disconnect. :confused:

    Did you cut a small piece off of the base?? It won’t seat flush if not cut. Also, make sure your wires are not in the way.
