Look at where the Door joins the body, some cars have a large molex connector rather than a continual wire harness going into door. Check to make sure its fitting together properly and snapped shut. When these start coming apart options controlled from the door start to quit one at a time usually.

I don't think they changed out your door wiring harness. I had the same problem on my 09 (it was on the K07 recall list) After much searching, I purchased the K07 recall wiring kit, CBJ1K072AA Door Wiring Harness Package (with power windows express up/down feature / sales code JSC). With no express up/down the number changes to xxxxxxxx1AA . These are readily available online at a big discount as "old stock". I paid under $30 plus shipping. You get both sides. Taking the inner door panel off can be a bit of a chore but my local body shop installed it for $50. They now work perfectly.

Michael had the best answer and I run into broken wires is the rubber boot between the body and door. Especially dodge products.

Battery trick worked for me but need to disconnect the negative ground to kill power not the posive. I did the positive and found accessors still had power i. Work under5 the hood not at the battery

I disconnected the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes & it worked like a charm. Good thing too because my wife didn't want to drive to work on a cold morning with the window half open.

On my 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan sxt, the Wiindow Module went bad. The driver side window switches, locks, and mirrors did not work. First I replaced the driver side control, still didn't work, then traced it back to this window control module. Have to take the door panel off to get to it

Tried the battery disconnect and it didn't work. Replaced the switch and still no go. Seemed to be related to the key fob. Help...

Help.... Having the same issue. First it was the mirror control and front windows control on driver windows. Now the driver control doesn't work at all. Also both back window controls won't work either. The only window control that works is the front passenger window and only from the passenger control. TIA

Oh forgot to add that we tried the battery reset but no luck.

I drove around for 6 months with the driver side window not working. only rear windows worked from driver side. all other windows worked by the individual switch. I could not be bothered to fix the POS that I have driven for over 8 years and only a 150K on it. then today for some reason the driver side window was all the way down and would not go back up. read comments above and disconnected negative from battery for 5 minutes and it worked !! thanks !! Steve/Toronto

Battery thing didn’t work for me. Shoot! Any other suggestions gurus? ;) Phil-Beamsville

My 2008 dodge grand carvan nothing works from the switch on driver side but back windows open just fine help me
