Rocker switches with a center 'off' aren't hard to find.  They are normally mounted in a rectangular hole (similar to that on a cheap drip coffee machine) but have either single pole contacts (switches one wire to one or the other to a common contact- SPDT) or double pole that has two separate sets of contacts isolated from each other - DPDT. If you want to see the electrical symbol for these;
Go down to the description  Intermediate switch 4-way switch This will show you how to connect for your windows. 
When you look for these parts, you must make sure that the alternating positions are spring loaded and that the center (rest) position is OFF.
Check with local Radio Shack or
I suggest RS first since it would be person-person so you can describe what you need.
Ask for Double Pole - Double Throw - Center OFF

Why wont the power windows in my 2004 Mitsubishi eclipse rs work?

If this problem has to do with just one window , then the windows motor has to be replaced . If all of the windows don't work , check the power cable or the fuses : there is a fuse box under the hood .

The power window electric motor is going bad. It's a common sign when it works for a little while, sometimes, that the electric lift motor needs to be replaced.

I bought a 1994 ford mustang v 6 and the power windows dont work you press the button and i hear a noise then i have to press down or pull up to get the windows up or down and the power seat doesnt work...

Two unrelated problems. If you can hear the window motor running, but you have to manually pull the window up or down, it needs a window regulator. Check the fuse for the power seat. If its good, you can the connector at the motor under the seat to see if its getting power.

1997 RS pwr window DS.......rolls up and down

I had the same problem with the pwr window PS recently. Took it to the Chevy dealer and they replaced the window motor and said that there was a short in the window motor (cost $270). It worked fine for two weeks... Now, suddently, there is no power to neither windows, the radio nor the IP dimmer. I am guessing I have now the short on the DS motor window.
