Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus
Cant find the power window relay switch windows wont work at all
There is no relay for the windows, if all windows aren't working, check the fuse (#2). It could also be a faulty windows on/off switch on the drivers side.

SOURCE: windows dont work
First I would check the fuse, if it is burned then it means there is a short in the system. It must be found and repaired before you can continue to check the rest of the power window system. If the fuse is burned, I would first suspect the power window switch,the power window relay, and last but not the least, the electric. motor. 1 time out of 100,000 or more times a wire if chafed or rubbing causing a short.
Most likely this is the case from what you tell me. Get yourself if you don't have a voltmeter or, just a 12 volt test lamp. First remove the door cover screws, door handle, locks etc., also remove the screws in the door switch drivers side. Then on the bottom of the door using a wide flat head screw driver gently pop the plastic tabs out so it don't look hacked. If your using a test light, connect one end, most of the time it's an alligator clip, connect it to a good ground, the door cross brace itself is a good ground and make sure it does not have paint on it. Touch the end of the light to the positive side of the battery to make sure the test light works OK. Connect the the light/lamp end to all the connections on the bottom of the power window switch ( drivers side ), one switch at a time, pushing the switch on and off to make sure all switches have power to both sides when button is pushed, if the test light lights while pressed on, then the switch's are good. If the switch tests good then I would have no problem buying a power window relay. Your Drivers side switch controls all windows that's why you check the power to that switch only. I would change the relay first if the fuse is OK because it's common to be the relay but, one never knows. I hope this is not too confusing but, it beats paying $$$$$$$$ to a dealer or repair shop if you can fix it yourself. And I have a feeling this is a easy fix. Good luck with your repair....tommyjg

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:
1. Sit in vehicle
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is openned
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button held
5. SLAM door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, usually the first try works!
NOW, for the naysayers that says you must replace power window motors etc, at $$$ cost because the above fix does not work, or is not long lasting fix, or less than a "professional fix".... Well then, when the window fails to operate again, apply same fix again at that time.
I have fixed my van this way numerous times (usually once a year), and to all I recommend this fix too, likewise do the same.

I'm assuming that when you try to control the right side passenger window the lights dim a little. If this is the case, the motor for the window is more than likely faulty and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy or inexpensive fix. You should have a certified Dodge mechanic diagnose the problem just in case there isn't something obstructing the movement of the window. If it needs replacemnt, the replacemnt motor new is more than likely over $200 plus labor.You may want to live with it depending upon you financial situation.
Sorry it's not good news.
