    Electric Windows.

    Hi everyone, the electric windows on my Zaf have both stopped working, i checked the fuse under the dash and it isnt broken, i dont think it is a problem with the motors that open and close the widows because the problem occured with both of the windows at the same time and prior to this they were both working fine. Do any of you guys have any idea what the problem maybe? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.......

    What year is the car?
    Do your switches still light up?
    Do your electric mirrors still work?

    I'm assuming here that you only have front electric windows by your description.
    For both windows to stop working at the same time it has to be something common. All that can be is a power supply.
    The motors should all get a permanent supply via fuse 20 30Amp &switches all get the same ignition feed via fuse 15 7.5Amp.
    Check these two fuses, by replacement if neccessary, & report back.

    Time to get the multimeter out & check some voltages.
    Go to the drivers door multiplug & check for permanent power on pin 2 (red wire) & ignition power on pin 12 (black wire) of the plug.
    If either voltage is missing check the appropriate wiring in the door loom for breaks.
