Driver side window switch will not only open driver window

It will open the rest of them.  Is there a way I can trouble shoot this or fix a short?  Could it be a fuse that would would affect only the driver side window but not the rest from the same control?  Thank you

It sounds to me like its probably the driver switch is either bad or worn out...best solution is buy the whole regulator

If they go down but not up. Replace the master switch on the drivers door. 3 don't usually die at they same tie unless it is that switch.

1998 Rav 4 power windows.. Front Passenger window will not roll up from master or passenger side. No noise, need new motor


Each system is bad. The windows need regulators(they come with motors) the radio probably died(check fuse). And the mirror switch is bad(Since you still have power to the drivers window).

I have a 1999 BMW 328iS. Windows don't work! Have done a lot to troubleshoot the problem! What next?


It might be a coincidence with the sun roof, but all makes and models of cars have window and door lock problems with age. Two things happen as a car ages. In most cases, the drivers door opens and closes more often than the rest of the doors, also your more likely to leave the drivers window open and it rains in on the controls. The majority of the time, it's the wiring at the door hedge that bends back and forth & breaks when you get in and out of your vehicle. Everyone's situation is different depending on use/mileage.
Example: Delivery driver, miles 50k window/door lock problem.
Highway daily driver 150k miles with no problems.

You can sometime check this your self. Turn on your ignition where the windows should work. "engine does not have to start" Sit in the drivers seat, hold down the window up/down button while moving the door in question to open & close. If the window tries to move at any time, the wires are wore in half. This does not always work, but I have had great luck trouble shooting electrical door problems using this method. If you have doors with no wires, clean the contact points. Hatchbacks & minivans use this system. Hope this helps.

How to repair Power Window Switch on front Driver's side. Window will go down, but not up. Plus now, front window on passenger side sometimes doesn't respond.


The reason that they go down but not up is because they are usually binding in the track inside the door. You can remove the door panel and grease it with silicone grease to fix the problem. Usually its not the switch, but if you press it too much the switch will get burned out because it overheats inside from the current. If you remove the door panels, you should be able to switch the left and right switches to trouble shoot the switches. If you switch them and the right one goes down now, then you know the old right switch is bad.

Driver power window will not roll back up


A quick way to check if the motor or switch is the problem is to perform this test, at night operate the window switch with the door open, if the dome light dims slightly most likely the window motor is defective or the regulator is jammed, if no dim is observed then the switch is most likely the problem, very quick and easy to do.
