PostSubject: Front windows and mirrors wont move!!!   Front windows and mirrors wont move!!! I_icon_minitimeApril 9th 2014, 9:25 am

So i just picked up my 300C knowing there was an issue with the front windows (wont go down) and mirrors (wont move) using the driver side door switches. I can lower the rear windows using the master switch. I can lower the front passenger window using the driver side door switch.

I pulled off the door panel and verified everything is plugged in but still no luck. This leads me to believe it is a switch issue. I have gone ahead and ordered the master switch or mirror switch to swap them out. Mean while does anybody have any ideas i could try or something to check before the switches arrive?

if you have a DMM (digital multimeter). You can do some power and resistance checks to confirm that you have power going to the switch and if the switch is making contact and things.

Try the plug by the door jamb toward the front they are known to lose connection.

Yeah, use the multimeter and see if there is power, I DO know like said, the looms in the jams go bad from moving so much, I had a similar issue with my trunk on my other Charger, a wire broke in the loom from the body to the trunk so the button wouldnt open the trunk, could be a switch as well, I've seen that as well

that seems strange that its the switch... usually, to keep costs low, they just use the same switches in nearly all the cars. Did you check things out with the multimeter? if not, you might get the switch and be back to square one.

well i tried to figure this out with multimeter but not sure what i am looking for. If anyone knows what their doing i could sure use the help.

By the way this turns out to be more than just windows.

From master switch:
cant move front left or right window
cant move either mirror
memory seats dont work
driver door lock will not go up/down

I switched out the master switch, mirror switch and memory module in the door.

youll want to take voltage readings or resistance readings from the switches... ensure you have 12v going into the switch, then see if you get the 12 volts at the motor or out of the switch. You can also check the switch action by use of resistance, an open switch will show O.L, while a closed or made switch will be 0.0 or whatever. Check ground connections too... a bad ground could cause this stuff to not work either.
