    Default 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan power window problem

    Hi Does anyone know where to find a power window relay or a fuse for
    the power windows on a 1997 Grand Caravan? It does not show in the
    book or any of the manuals that I have found. My passenger side window
    will not go up or down from either switch, so before I start replacing
    those expensive parts I would check a fuse. Can anyone help with this?

    Default 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan power window problem

    My drivers side van window will go half way down and won't go back up. There
    is a tiny thermistor wired in series that limits current thru the cheap
    chinese motor in case a kid leans on the switch. I bridged the thermistor
    with a very low ohm resistor and now the motor works fine.
    Many times the window will stop working because the thermistor heats up, but
    letting the thing cool for 5 minutes and trying again may get it going .

    well if the other window goes up and down on the drivers side you just
    checked the breaker. It feeds the same side.
    More then likely the motor is worn out on the passenger side, remove the
    door panel and check for a good ground and 12 volts. If you tap on the motor
    while the window switch is pushed, the window may start to work.
