2003 Alero passenger window

My 2003 Alero has a problem with the passenger window. You can put the window up and down just fine from the passenger side but you can only put it down from the driver side. When I try to put it up from the driver side I hear a faint click and sometimes the window will move up a fraction of an inch but that is it.

I would be very suspicious of the drivers master swich. If the window works fine on the other side it's an easy assumption that the window motor and regulator are operative. The switches are usually fairly inexpensive (less then 100.00 ) and easy to install

The passenger window on my 2003 alero keeps coming off track when i roll it down how can i fix this

It sounds like something is bent out of place! Have you watched it go up and down with the panel off? Shake on the tracks to see if one is loose! There are bolts on the bottom that hold them in place!

My passenger side window will not go down and now also my power driver seat doesn't go back. It only moves forward.

I had this on my 2000 gm van and I had a small fire under the passenger door jamb. This was helped to put it out because there was no seal and always wet to help put out the fire. LOL!!!

The passenger window won't go up or down. all those work great and it did too -no noise

If there is no motor noise in either the up or down direction, then I would look at both of the switches next. The master (driver's door switch) and the door switch are both required for the window to operate. After that, inside the door is a door module that could have a loose connection or be bad.

Power window passenger side not working even from driver side is there a fuse for that

Generally there is one fuse for the entire window system. It is possible your problem is a dirty or defective switch on the drivers side. I believe power for the passenger side comes through this switch. I cleaned mine over a year ago, using WD40 and it has been working fine since.
