Could be the master switch because the drivers window is mostly used, or the window motor/regulator. same reason. Easy to check with a volt/ohm meter. You'll need wiring/pin outs for electrical.

I have no idea why the window only goes down.

Michael, Inside the window switch are copper contacts that do wear,corrode and become defective. the switch still could be defective even though it works for going down.
Test the switch with a DVOM or test light.
You can google search your particular vehicle for more info on diagnosing power window problems.

Toyota 2007 avalon rear defroster not working. Mirror defrost is working. What is wrong?

First check all fuses, second check for 12v power at the connector to th rear window, a test light or volt meter on dc voltage,if there is power use an ohm meter to check the window grid with the power connector disconnected.if open the connection is either open or bad. if there was no power at the connector check the power from switch all the way back to the window

Check engine light is on and stays on. also rightside window doesn't roll up or down and the right mirror doesn't work.

Regarding your check engine light, you'll need to hook the car up to a scanner to find out what codes are stored in memory to see what's the problem. As for your window and mirror, it sounds like it's the (SAM / computer) in your f/r door. Anyone with the mercedes benz computer (Star diagnostic system) would be able to further diagnose this issue for you before changing the wrong part. If you're in the NY area I'd be happy to diagnose this for you.

The driver side power window and power mirror is not working. Would this be a bad fuse or possibly a bad electric motor? I pulled the fuse panel, but I don't see anything for the power windows. Any...

well being that the power mirror and window both get power from the same source aka one lead wire i would check to make sure the wire is not damaged from door opening and closing ect.
also there is a fuse somewere for power windows but typically bothh would not work if fuse issue howerver check your power window relay if that is not the issue either a wire came out of the fuse box for driver side door power and or the wire is damaged

if it helps please leave a good thumbs up

Electric windows will not operate. fuses seem fine.

Try Taking a voltage reading with a multi amp at the switch,then check the plug at the connection end to the motor. If you have a 12 volt power supply you can check the motors to see if they work ok .

Power window not working

it sounds by the motor clicking that your power window motor is shot.....If you jump 12 volts to the terminals on the motor does it work?.................if it does you can at least get it up.......if you put the power to it and it goes down reverse the wires on the terminals and it will go up.But it sounds to me like you need a new one.
hope this helps!..............Good luck!
