Default windows not working!?

hey everyone, so all of the sudden the 4 windows will not work.. They are all rolled up and have not worked since I have been home although the sunroof still works.. Today on the way home from omaha, I was playing with the switch and the pass. window rolled down about a half an inch and stopped working, so now its stuck there and its supposed to rain tonight

any suggestions? The fuse looks good. I honestly have no idea where to look

I have the same issue. All 4 windows simply stopped working yesterday. I replaced the fuse but to know avail. The sunroof and rear window works, just not any of the doors regardless of which switch it is.

I had to replace my master window switch awhile back when I first got the truck, but it was only the driver side that went bad. So the switches dont work on any of the doors?

None of them work. It seems to me that the master switch on the drivers side door could affect all of the windows due to the master lockout located on the switch. This is the button that locks access to the window except for the driver.

How much was the switch?

Hey James. idk if you have tried yet but take you door panel off and spray the switches down with some contact cleaner.
