Default none of my windows work

Ok so today i went to roll down the window and it went down a little and stopped. Now none of the windows work at all. I have a 2004 slt quad cab. I checked fuses. None bad. I dont see any relays for windows. I went to auto parts store and bought new master switch for drivers door. Didnt fix problem. Tried taking apart to fix lockout switch. Did not fix. The windows dont work from any switch at all. Please help.

did you check the fuses? also double check the relay to see if its working. try swapping from another circuit to see if the relay is bad.

The window switches in out 3rd gen Rams are fairly simple. The switch runs to the cluster, then the cluster activates the motor and wham.... you've got power windows. If you've gone through all the steps to make sure there is not power to any of the motors, then I'm afraid the only thing left would be a bad cluster. They're not that expensive, and not that hard to R&R. See if you can find a used cluster and swap it out. I'm thinking that will fix your window issue.

Ok what is this cluster you are talking about? Is there a specific fuse or relay for the windows?

Instrument cluster. There is a fuse, but no relay. All control goes through the instrument cluster. On my truck, it's a 40 amp fuse, # 9. Should be the same on yours.

I had a trace on the circuit board go bad where it connected to the lockout switch. I resoldered it and all my windows were operational again.
