I have the same problem try this pull the swith out of the door panel. without disconecting on the bottom side of the connector i ran a long piece of wire from the neg batt terminal to the black wire the windows worked a broken or damaged ground seems to be common.the driver door i pull out the locking clip on the connector wich gave me better access to the black wire
You most likely have a bad window lift motor or MORE LIKELY a broken window regulator. The door must be disassembled to replace either or both of these. It could also be a bad window control switch or a broken wire in the door-jamb area. Please note that EITHER of the switches for the passenger window (the driver's control switch or the one on the passenger door) can cause BOTH of the switches to not work to move the passenger window. In this case, electrical diagnosis must be performed to locate the cause of the problem.
Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.
Remove the door panel. You will see the motor, remove the thre star screws, then remove the motor. Remove the motor cap which is held on by one screw. you will see three plastic plugs, remove these and replace with new ones or ball barrings if defective. Pack with grease when reinstalling. Now if it is not the motor then you have a defective regulator. Start by removing the pens holding in the regulator using a hammer and a punch, then drill out the aluminum rivits using 1/4 inch drill. Replace these with 1/4 bolds and lock nuts. Punch out and remove the aluminum holding in the glass, replace these also with 1/4 bolts and lock nuts. If one is going bad then likely all of them will follow. Purchase the regulators and motors if defective on on line,much cheaper. It will take you about 4 hours to replace the first motor and window reglator.
It could be the fuse, does it go down? If not chk. fuse, if fuse ok, see if you can help it down by pushing down on window wile working switch, and also same wile trying to go up, if it don't work or if its slow chanses are the motor is tired and needs replaced or its lost power like bad switch or broken wire. there is also a chanse it came off the track in witch case the door panel will have to be removed.
