You would need to take off the door panel in order to remove it. I've included an auto repair video in "related links" down below that will show you exactly what needs to be done to replace it on your 2000 Volkswagen Passat. Hope this helps you out.

no power on the power windows switch

sounds like you need to replace power window master switch

it could be that your relay is stuck on. your passat windows can be lowered or raised when car is off.

You will more than likely be needing to change the power window motor in the door. It sounds like the switch is ok. This would be the next step

more than likely you will have to replace the drivers side master switch

Sometimes it is the switch.

The bcm that controls power windows, locks and doors is located on the driverside floor.

Power windows are protected by an automatic resetting circuit breaker.

To get your power windows to work in your 1994 Astro Van, first remove the interior door panel. Now you can access the actuator, the window switch, and the window motor. Replace the broken part in order to make the windows work again.

Check master switch If burnt or black spots or broken replace ,Check power lead wire (usually red) for cracks ,wear,etc..Replace if needed .Make sure good connect from power lead to switch.Also make sure other connections are good ,including ground connection

did you mean power locks? for windows and doors? If so....check the wiring (from circuit breaker close to the fuse box) and replace switch if needed

Try removing the main window switch on the driver's side. All the switches are connected to that switch. If that switch has gone bad then you need to replace it. Also check the fuse to the power windows. Might have gone bad.

Allright with a voltimitter check your switchs so when you roll them up or down you have power to the switch if not its your door switch. if you do have power check if you have power to your motor. there is no relay switch theres only fuses.

First, check that the window lock switch is not pressed. It is on the drivers door next to the four power window switches, it has a little picture of a door and window on it with an X through it. If the switch is pressed, only the driver can open and shut the windows, the switches on the other doors will not work. If the windows won't work at all, not even from the driver's door, make sure the fuse for the power windows is good. Replace it if you don't know how to check it, fuses are cheap.

Do you mean the main switch by the driver or the switch on the door itself?

You may have a short in the power window switch.

Your switch could be worn out you would have to replace the rocker to the switch or replace the whole window switch console.

Do you mean for the door or the main switch on the driver's side? The main switch is very easy to replace... not sure about the door switches.

Fuse panel. Location is listed in your owner's manual. If all your power windows are not working, like my 90 Passat, I had to replace the window relay (control module) located under the rear back seat. There are two black boxes there, it is the larger box. At the dealer they wanted over $200 but I went to a wrecking yard and picked it up for under $20.
