Ok so I know the windows are always issues but I have a little different issue. I bought a camaro and the pass window did not work. The next day the driver door went out. So I buy 2 new window motors and put them both in... always fun. Both windows work great. I go to work next day windows go up and down perfect. Halfway to work I go to roll windows back down and they don't work... at all, like it has no power to switch... neither side with neither button will work.... any advice would be appreciated

Did the wiring clusters come loose?

1) cluster to the switches
2) wires going into window motor

Passenger side switch doesn't work either... they both quit same time... that would be highly unlikely for both to come loose... thanks for the response though maybe I did a poor job explaining...

On your driver side, the wires on the cluster goes to both switches.
Do you mean the switches in both the driver door and passenger door don't work? Or just the driver/passenger switch in only the drivers door?

On neither door... yeah if I actually reach over and push switch on pass door its does not work... my next step is changing the 30amp breaker... btw the mirror switch still works if that helps anyone

Replace the regulators. Your gonna have an electrical fire upping the breaker amperage. I'd check for power and ground first, but I'm already pretty sure you need regulators. All F bodies do, and everyone goes the super-duper-pain-in-the-ass route of just replacing the motor.

the shoebox method was a breeze replacing the motor
