I"d look for a short in the door harness. Has the car been in an accident? Does the car have an alarm system? Has the car been flood damaged? Chip

I have a 2004 Chevy venture passenger window won't go up or down what could it be

Have you tried the drivers door "passenger door window switch" and the passenger "door window switch" to try and roll the passenger window up?When you do try to roll it up make sure the vehicle is running as you want the most voltage to the window motor.If both door switches would not roll the window up,try the following.
With the engine running hit the up window switch on the passenger door just as you give the door a HARD FIRM RAP.The window should roll up.It may take a few tries.DO NOT roll the window back down until you have changed or dissembled the window motor for a good cleaning.Also,check for broken wires at the door hinge area on both the drivers and passenger sides,pull each wire firmly looking for a broken wire.

The rear passenger window will not roll up.

Soundls like your window motor went bad. Could also be window regulator or just a bad wiring conection. Take off door pannel and check the connections and the motor. Hope that helps

The driver window will not go up OR down.

If the motor runs as you push the switch and keeps running till you stop the drive in the motor or the regulater has broken. You can try to manully close the window and then push the switch to see if it'll ingage. Opening the door by removing the door panel, work the switch to see what's not working. If you haven't worked on the interanl or car doors before at least get a manul to see the procedure and refer to the pictures as you can break it still further or hurt yourself inside the door.. Auto parts stores online sales catalogs will show you what the parts look like and how much they cost. Many Volvo's aren't covered very well at parts stores and you may have to get replacemnt patys on ebay to get a reasonable price. wreaking yards are spotty as these days they have to crush cars soon after they get them per enviromental laws.

Power window rolls down fine, but will not roll up, motor works but window does not move with out assistance, what is wrong?

the glass channels are dry, get a can of silicone spray lube from the auto parts store and spray it into the glass channels until it runs out the botton drain of the door, cover platic parts with a rag as the silicone can discolor them, run the window up and down to ditribute the lube, this should cure the problem

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and the drivers side back window rolled down and will not roll back up now. Any ideas? I have ordered a new motor but waiting for it to get here, any ideas why I...

Pull off door panel and jump power to motor to test. If it doesnt work you bought the right part. Then disconnect motor and work regulator up by hand then wedge regulator in spots to keep glass up till part arrives.

1999 Dodge Durango driver side window does not roll up nor down.

Remove the door panel and find the window motor Unplug it and using a separate car battery run cables directly to the window motor When you switch the polarity the motor will either bring the window up or down or if noting happened change the window motor and window regulator assembly.

2002 Nissan Altima windows roll down by themselves w/no key in

You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.

Grand Cherokee Ltd, '96 - serious electrics issue

look up schematics for the auto lock system for your model. 
get a highlighter.
trace the lines from the actual lock motor to the PCM (powertrain control module) note all objects you come into contact with when using the highlighter. the circuit should not be that complicated. if you are not familiar with circuits, find someone who is. 
write them down.  the components.
take your findings to your nearest, knowledgeable, experienced technician and get him to test each component. you will find your problem.
the window problem, i would go right to the motor. it sounds like your are getting a short to ground somewhere in the motor, or near it. take the door panel off and look at the motor for anything abnormal.
