Re: Drivers side window power went out
Possible switch problem, and or wiring at door hinge area. All that switch does as far as power to your window goes, is provide it one way for up, and reverses polarity for down. the reason I say wiring, is quite often the harness where the door hinges, gets bent back & forth so much with opening & closing the drivers door especially, that it will sometimes wear through & cause problems.

was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)
Hello: Check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood, drivers side also check the fuses in the trunk fuse panel on the drivers side. If the tail light fuse is open that will keep the instrument lights out also.
Try pressing down till connects with window bracket, then try up & down. Good luck, Actuall sounds like you need to clenn the window motor plug-in's with some wd/40 next This is located in the driver side door pannel.good luck to ya. .
there may be a couple of screws that hold the door handle assembly to the door if so remove them so you can lift it up, if not it may be that you have to push back on the inside door handle assembly to remove the top of the are where the switches are located. You will have to get this loose and lifted to access the switch.
Each window has it's own little motor which pushes the window up and down in a track. you will have to have that motor replaced, but I recommend that you replace the entire power window assembly which means that you will get a new motor and a new track. This is a 30 minute job and should cost about 200 dollars
no. the drivers switch is the MASTER switch and not like the others. if the window goes up but not down, most likely the switch. get inside the car and open the door, as you are holing the window switch down, slam the door shut a few times, sometimes this will "jar" the window motor loose if it is stuck. if it works ok now, the window motor is jamming and will need replacement. another trick is to carefully watch the dome light as you are working the switch, if you push the switch down, and the dome light dims "slightly", the switch is good and the motor is stuck.
