Window Problem

I'm having a problem with all of my windows except for the drivers side window and the sunroof (those work fine). It's just all of the passenger windows. When I try to roll them down, I just hear a "click". What could be causing them not to work?

I have searched for this, but I didn't find my exact problem.

Did you check the wires in the rubber boot going into drivers door,they have a habit of fraying and cracking,knocking out power to multiple things at once.

This. Either there is a pinched wire or two, or the switch itself is bad.

then more than likely it is the switch on the drivers door.

Take a close look in the rubber boots in all the doors. This is a common problem and its better to make sure before you go buying switches or regulators.

If that's not the problem then it probably is the switch.

There are many threads here that go into great detail about this exact problem. There are YouTube videos also that will show you how to fix it.
