The drivers side unit on the door was replaced once - the unit that controls all the automatic door locks and all the power windows - and it stopped working about 6 months ago. I cannot open the windows at all. I replaced the fuse, but still doesn't work. Thinking it may be the unit again, a switch under the unit, or a faulty wire in between the door.
Driver's side front power window failed. Buy a new one at an autoparts store and replace yourself. Not hard and will save you bucks (find out how to disassemble interior trim and replace unit online).
