Question '93 NX2000 BOTH power windows intermittent

The windows in our NX usually operate normally, including the lock and 'auto down' functions.

Periodically however, they both stop working and will not go up or down.

Any idea what might cause this?

I actually have the ginormous 1993 Nissan Sentra/NX service manual, but I don't recall seeing anything called a 'switch pack'. What is it?

Default Power window amplifier

In another thread here on IN someone posted a schematic that showed a 'window amplifier'. I'd never heard of such a thing.

I'll have to take another look at the service manual.

my former camry had switch issues. if one of the door switches wasnt working, the window would not operate from the master switch until the bad switch on the door got replaced.

Thanks -- in this case though, both windows do not work.

The switch pack would be the master window switches on the drivers door. Nothing but wearable moving parts there.

Gotcha.

Well, good news and bad news. I just went out to see if I can access the switch pack without removing the door panel -- it looks like I can.

The good news is, I tried the window switches and they worked -- both doors.

The bad news is, now I can't troubleshoot the problem.

I'll have to wait for the windows to fail again. There is quite a bit that is common to both.

I suppose that even though the windows are currently working, I could check resistance of the switch contacts.

when the window in my former pathfinder would only go down but not up, I took the motor out of the door, removed the metal cover, cleaned it out and wiped the coil down and reinstalled it and it was fine afterwards.

those switches arent much but a copper contact with a spring between the plastic button and the contact. you could try some electronics contact cleaner. just insert that little tube in there and give it a squirt while working the buttons. it cant hurt.
