Automatic Up for power window not working

Passenger side window works with either switch to go down or up while holding the switch. Automatic down works just fine as well, but when you close the passenger side door it will not push up to seal like it should. Also when you try to use the auto up portion of the switch it will not work. Fully push the switch down works as it should and the window goes completely down. Pull the switch up and it will only work as long as you hold the switch. Drivers side works as it should in both directions. Any idea's as to where to begin?

    If it was the switch then it would only effect 1 switch no? I don't
    think that both switches would go out at once. Not totally out of the
    question but still unlikely. Also considering the auto down feature is
    still working I don't think it would be the relay since they are just
    reversing the polarity of the voltage.

    Okay problem has been fixed! It was really a simple fix that worked.
    The window apparently has a calibration built into some sort of memory.
    I did further research and found a manual located at This
    told me to run the recalibration based on the window would not go
    completely up when closing the door. I ran the window all the way down
    held the switch for 2 seconds and ran it all the way up and held the
    switch for 2 seconds. The window now works as it should.

    I had the same problem. I followed ur instructions and it worked perfect. Thanks

    I have a similar problem but the calibration steps did not solve the problem. My window will run all the way up and then drop to about 1/4 the way up and stop. I have disconnected the battery for an hour and tried recalibration several times. Not an ideal condition in South Dakota in February.

    all window motors and switches are good driver side window will not work using switch, and truck does not want to start unless you move the (automatic trans) gear shift around and the gages on the instrument cluster will move then it will start like a broken wire

There are relays that keep power to the window motor until it is all the way sounds like there is a problem with that relay or the switch itself
hope this helps.....Good luck!

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not

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)

2005 Chrysler T&C passenger side window went down and won't come up. All other automatic windows and door locks work fine - don't hear any motor sound / buzz / etc. when either driver side or passenger...

If the window had not been slow in it's action before it stopped working I'm guessing you only have a connection problem. I would remove the door panel and using a multimeter check the hot wire to see if power is reaching the switch. If it is check the connection on the motor. If power is reaching the motor through the switch you have a faulty motor. If at any point of testing there is no power backtrack the power wire to find where the break is. (it's usually in the door jam)

Passenger power window stopped working???

some times the window regulators on toyotas need to be resett if they get jammed or they are interupted when operating ... an easy way to reset the regulator in toyotas is to disconnect the passenger regulator or switch wait 5 minutes the reconnect and using the passenger switch hold it up for 20 seconds and then down all the way holding it down when it stops for another 20 seconds. then check that the drivers side is now working and reset

Power Window on passenger side not working

It either needs a new window motor or switch. To tell which, you can open the door, have the ignition in the on positon or running, hold up or down on the window switch (whichever way it needs to go), and slam the door pretty hard while holding the switch. If the window works, it needs a motor/regulator assembly. If not, look at wiring or switch. If you can hear the motor running, and nothing happens, you need a motor/regulator assembly.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window

The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.
