    I have only had this beast for 4 months, and this forum may make me keep it for 10 more years. I have an 03 EB 4WD. The rear vent windows do nothing. Any idea where to start?

    Fuse or bad motors would be a good start. If the fuse is good, put a multimeter on the motor connectors and see if they get power when switched on. If so, bad motors. If not, a short in the wiring or switch.

    Especially if they haven't been opened for a long time.

    Thanks for all of the ideas! I will check it on Sat, as long as it is over 30 degrees!

    I just bought an 2003 EB. Its a stupid question, but how do these windows open? Are they power or manual?

    They are motorized
    If yours aren't working check fuse #22 with a meter
    Also check your owners manual for the location of the switch

    I checked the manual again. Looks like the switch is next to the moon roof switch. Thanks!!!

    You could trade it in for a EB model
