Dizzy Saturn Astra four electric windows don't work

Hi everyone! I'm new here and I own a Saturn Astra 2008 and I have a problem. There it is:

My four eletric windows don't work. I cheked the fuse and it's all right so i'm pretty sure it's a cable or a connection somewhere that is damaged. So I would like to know where to chek if I want to verify the connections between my fuse box and the place where the cables split to go to the four different windows.


Thanks!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Their is (2) 25 amp fuses in the rear fuse block.
Each of the window motor have logic built in them.
The switches or the rear fuse block send a signal (may be a pull up or down signal) to the required circuit.

Codes should be checked in the rear fuse block (module), This requires Saturn Astra software in the Tech-2 or Tech-2 Win.

Did all the window fail at the SAME time?
Was their any other repairs being done at the time of failure.
Dose it have a sunroof and is working?
Did you try all of the switches.
This car may also have all windows open by holding the unlock button on the transmitter, dose it work?

Thanks for your answer!

Nothing works. The four windows don't work. They stoped working at the same time and no there weren't any repair being done at the time. It dosen't have a sunroof. Yes I tried every switch and no holding the unlock button on the transmitter doesn't work.

What do you think I should do?

After thinking about a little, If this problem came to me to fix the next step for me would be check for codes in all modules. With the scan tool connected I would also check if the windows can be control with the scan tool. Then I would likely test the different circuits at the drivers door switch. (power, ground and control circuits to the other motors. depending on what I have already found I may check for broken wires in the driver's door jam.

If you take it to a shop for diagnostics be sure they have Saturn Astra software in the Tech-2 or Tech-2 Win as required Or you may end up paying them for something they can't test.
Don't swap modules with bone yard part, some can't be changed without SPS programming before and after changing the part including before removing from donor vehicle.

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Saturn Astra four electric windows don't work

Hi Max and other committed members,
I'm having the same problem as Max + the Sunroof (my Astra has one). The windows are working intermittently, i.e. for a few days they might work, and then not work at all for a few more days, all at once (including sunroof). The LED light on the window switches (driver, front and rear passenger are on or off depending if the window is working or not), but for the sunroof, the LED is always on, even when the latter doesn't work.
  • It's not a fuse problem, otherwise it wouldn't work sometimes,
  • I don't think it's a wire problem, which wire affects all 4 windows + Sunroof,
  • Could be indirectly related to central locking module, since the latter impacts all for windows+sunroof when locking unlocking,
  • It's not a one window problem, all 4 + sunroof are affected,
  • I'm suspecting a relay problem, but I don't know how to confirm it, and if/when done, what to change/order/replace
Any help is appreciated

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

A common problem with the Astra is failure of the rear-driver's-side power window. I think that was a wiring defect which was somewhat painful to repair.

Do a search as it might be related and help you troubleshoot. . .

Mine has evidence of a repair on the loom going from the body into the door. I also found a receipt to 'check the repair of rear door harness'

I saw photos of the problem on other Astras and it looked like the wires were partially cut through the insulation.

Can you link the photos and posts you found most useful?

Lots of discussion in the above thread about broken wires between door and body. I had to "redo" mine in the rear driver's door 3 years ago
