The motor window is working fine. It is probably the up/down switch that is malfunctioning. They are usually easy to remove and most parts houses have them or can order them.

Passenger rear window will go down wont go up


Sounds like the switch has gone faulty, try swopping the switch with the other side window, if the problem goes with the switch, replace it. To test the window motor, remove door panel unplug motor, then with fly leads from a battery probe the socket, then reverse the probe wires, should get the motor to operate in both directions.

2003 gmc envoy Windows fuse


Are all windows not working ? Two separate circuit breakers left & right . Both in rear fuse box . Fuse Block - Rear Beneath the left rear seat
Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from body to doors.
Do you know about electronic control modules ?
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger door module (PDM)


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
LR power window switch


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)


The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.

Please do these check and let me know.

Diagnostic Fault Information

Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure.

Circuit/System Description

The power window system will operate any time the ignition is the ACC or RUN position. The power window system will also operate whenever the body control module (BCM) is in retained accessory power (RAP) mode. The driver power window switch contains individual window switches for each of power windows. All windows may be controlled up and down from the driver power window switch. The individual passenger power window switches will only control the up and down operation of their respective power window.
Each power window contains a reversible power window motor. The direction the window travels is dependent upon the polarity of the supply voltage. By reversing polarity of the supply voltage the window motor will move up or down. Each power window motor is internally circuit breaker protected.
Battery voltage is supplied to the power window switch through the accessory voltage supply circuit. The power window switch also receives a constant ground source. The power window motor control circuits are connected to ground through the normally closed up and down contacts of the power window switch. When the power switch is placed in the down position, the power window motor down control circuit is switched to 12 volts and is applied to the down side of the power window motor. Since the other side of the power motor is connected to ground through the normally closed contacts of the up switch, the window travels down. By placing the power window switch in the up position, the polarity of the power window motor is reversed and the window travels up.

Passenger power window put it down about 6 inches,would not go back up by either side switch. Took the door panel off and wiring is ok.


COULD BE A COUPLE OF THINGS, THE EASY THING TO DO IS TO GET A GOOD 12V BATTERY AND MAKE SOME LONG JUMPER WIRES,THEN UNPLUG THE WIRE HARNESS THAT GOES TO THE WINDOW REGULATOR OR MOTOR.NOW GET THE WIRES AND ATTACH TO BATTERY POSITIVE ,NEG,AND CAREFULLY TOUCH LEADS GOING INTO MOTOR ,YOU CAN REVERSE THEM FOR WINDOW DIRECTION.IF IT GOES UP AND DOWN WITH NO PROBLEM THEN YOU CAN ELIMINATE THE MOTOR,AND LOOK SOME WHERE ELSE....THE MOTOR MAYBE HEATING UP AND ONLY GOING DOWN A BIT THEN QUITS.OR THE SWITCH IS BROKEN .AND WONT GO UP.

There is a wiring harness on hinge side of passenger door correct, take a look at the wiring colors. Hope you can read it. At the window switch, the outside wire on either side is voltage or ground depending on which direction, up or down, reversing motor. You don't need the window switch for testing, you should be able to operate from driver door master switch. If you get the wires reversed, the only thing that will happen is, up will be down and down will be up, if that happens, reverse the wires. Just my opinion.
At the window switch, top middle wire is lockout, so only the driver can operate the windows.

2000 Kia Sportage EX, power passenger window will go down but not up. Is the only fix to replace the motor or are there other possible solutions?


It is a wiring issue very possibly. I have the same vehicle and took the door panel off to check the regulator motor. When I jumpered the motor directly to a battery it would run the window both up and down (by reversing battery polarity), so there must be a control wire issue. Also, the master control on the driver's side would allow the winder to go down but not up too. A common issue is the wire that controls the up position to break between the driver's door and the passenger door.

Reverse your test light connector, connect it to power so you can check for ground at window motor, flip switch up or down should have ground at both wire's while flipping switch to up or down, more then likely your not going to have ground at the up position, do same test at harness before passenger door switch if no ground master switch bad.

The right window doesn't go down?


you can take the door pannel off and unplug the wiring to the window motor. take a test light and check for power wile you try to roll the window down.if you have power and a good ground going to it then you have a bad window motor. you can pick up a window regulator and motor at any local junk yard for a lot less than the parts store or the dealer

99 chevy blazer lt front passenger window will not work up or down. from either driver switch or passenger switch


Hi: If other windows work then it can't be FUSE. I would take off the door panel and use a 12 volt test light to see if power is getting to the front passenger door motor (make sure power control switches are attached, key on position). If power... then hot wire the window motor using a 12 volt battery to see if it works. Hook + and - wires from battery directly to the motor, reverse them to make motor go up or down. To remove door panel pop electrical control up for the front and lift out then disconnect plugs. Use 7 MM socket to remove 2 screws under where handle is located. A Phillips screw driver removes the door handle cover. Pull on door panel to pop off, whole process takes under 5 minutes. If motor works and no power to motor from drivers door then there is a broken wire in circuit or the drivers control unit is not working. NEXT... disconnect drivers door control unit and check to see which brass terminals have power (key on position), note them... then put 12 volt power from battery to a terminal from plug that was attached to the passenger door motor, using your test light check drivers door plug to see if there is power to any terminals you DID NOT MARK as having power, if power then you know the circuit is good, do this with both wires from passenger door motor plug. (A circuit tester can be used as well). If continuity then the problem is in the drivers door control unit. If no continuity then a break in the wires to the passenger door, breaks usually occur between the body A pillar and where the wires go to the door as it flexes there every time the door opens or closes. Hope this helps, rate so I know if it is worth my while helping out on here.. thanks...
