They do have fuses but with the age of yours it's probably about time for the motor to need replaced. If it's the motor some times you can get lucky by removing the interior door covering then the three 10 mm bolts holding the motor in place, work it over to the small opening in door frame and lightly tap on motor with plyers or something similar as you press the window switch. Sometimes this will get the motors back working. Done this to wife's eclipse and hers has kept working for over a year now.

Wouldn't hurt to check the relay as well. If there is a "like" one in the fuse/relay block,, you could try temporarily swapping to see if the relay is the issue before tearing the door panel off? Just a thought..

Thank you dandyoun. And thank you mark, the picture will help alot!

When I taped the motor on my 2006 Mitsu Galant, that worked. Taking the door off is the worse part for me. Thanks for tips.
