    Hi everyone, I wonder if I could get some help from the experts!

    The drivers side rear electric window has stopped working. All the other windows work fine.
    On the driver window control there is a faint green light on all the other windows switches except for this one. There is no light on the window switch on the rear drivers side door either.

    Does anyone know what might be the cause of this? Is it the motor or something else?

    Thanks,
    James

    does it work from the drivers switch, or the passenger door switch?

    likely a burned out motor. you can test it by removing the interior panel and putting 12v to it.

    Thanks - I will try 12v on the motor.
    Could it be the fuse if its just one window and the other four are ok?

    Always check fuses first...always. Driver's access switch to RR window "also" not being illuminated "suggests" looking at that switch next, because the rear switch comes after in the logic control.

    Included "US" WDM to help.

    if the fuse is good, I would try to back probe the left rear power switch to see if there is power going through it. Do it on the Master switch first, then the rear switch itself.
