    i was wondering if anyone knows how to get to the rear power window switch for an '86 K5. i put the key in and turn it, but nothing happens. i have heard that is not broken, but just that the ground for the switch is off. im not sure what the problem is. but i can't get to it to figure it out!

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif I think the motor pulls a ground from the case, not a wire, so I don't think you have a ground issue. Did you check the fuse?

    Does the window go up or down at all? Do you hear anything when you turn the key....what does it do when you push the button on the dash?

    the interior switch works but the key on the reat of the truck doesn't do anything at all. the window does even sound like it wants to move

    Sounds like you need to take the key part out of the tailgate, take it apart and clean the contact points, they are just like 60's style points in a dist. clean the contact points and reassemble, should work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
