    Three out of four (all except driver's) power windows don't work. I suspect a fuse. Where is that fuse? Thanks in advance.

    Car electrical systems have had some changes over the years. My first thought would be more the communication lines between the computer in your driver's window switch and the body ECU. The body ECU might even have some trouble codes for you that would help narrow the possibilities.

    Both questions ("is there a fuse common to the other three windows but not the driver's" and "which wires are the communication circuit") will have answers in the wiring diagram (accessed the same way as the repair manual, more info).

    I assume you've checked the lock-out-other-windows switch on the driver's door?

    Hot damn, the lockout button was the culprit. I've had the car for 6 years and never noticed that. Thanks so much. I just finished pulling the battery and replacing a bad cell and was like what NOW? Thanks again.

    I literally had my mouse over the Post Reply button before it occurred to me to mention that possibility. :D
