ive been readin threw alot of ur posts and i see u have alot of knowledge on the 00-05 impala...
Anyways.my question is this..and yes its a problem..or i wouldnt need ur help..
shortly after i installed my projector headlights, i installed a cd player and sound systems as well..about 2 weeks between....then about 3 weeks after both was installed..1 day..out of knowhere, my windows dont roll down..not one window.....but heres the weird thing...of course i checked every fuse and relay, then replaced the main switch..still didnt roll down..so i took the whole system back out.and put factory back in..so when i did that, still not work..
Now, if i turn the headlight switch all the way down( you know to dim inside lights) and then press the driver window button..u can hear the motor..only when lights are dimmed inside...if u manually turn that dimmer back all the way up., no sound.and if the dimmer is up..the power mirrors wont work either, cuz its wired in same harness...so i took a continuety tester and found the brown and the purple wire are positive..so i took a battery and pos. wire and touched the brown and purple. and the window rolls down.(from an external power source)
so my question is,, y is this , what could have caused this..or is there any in put u can help me with..
to be honest this is the only flaw of my car..(knock on wood)
Sounds to me like something is drawing a lot of battery while the car is on. You can try to find which system the draw is in by removing different fuses while the car is on, and seeing if the problem goes away. Just make sure when you do remove a fuse that you know what it is for, and know that it won't screw up your vehicle.
The windows are powered by the RAP relay in the left side fusebox, and protected by a circuit breaker which I believe is on the back side of the fusebox.
When the key is ON, you should be getting voltage at the Yellow wire on the six-pin connector on the master window switch. Do you have voltage here?
If not, try swapping an identical relay from the underhood fusebox and see if it works.
Your other items are more than likely unrelated to this problem, s**t just happens sometimes no matter what you touch.
