Passenger side window will not go down

The window was going up and down a week ago. I loaned the vehicle to my daughter. She called me today and said that the window will not go down. She says that she tried the driver and passenger window control. Is it possible that she could have inadvertantly locked the window control. Does this vehicle even have a power window lock?

    I have found that by lubricating the window track with silicon spray, the window works fine. it seem that the weather stripping gets sticky. I have had to put my hand on the window and push down as i press the switch to get the window down but after the track was lubricated...voila...window works flawlessly

I fixed the window problem by helping the window go down while the switch was engaged and then lubricating the track with silicon may be something as simple as that, so before you replace switches aqnd the regulator, try the simple repair first

I had the same issue,so I took the power switches out on both doors and cleaned them with Q-tips and fingernail polish remover and now the work great. YOU will see dirt and other stuff of the metal switches, very easy to do and use a butter knife to pot out the switches holders.

Hi my name is Allen!
The problem you are having is a common problem with all Dodge Caravan's. But before we get into that lets make sure the child safety switch is not pressed downward on the drivers window switch if your vehicle has it. If that was not the problem then you will need a "Window Regulator" which you must get from the Dealership. If you need further assistance you may contact me through FixYa!

Passenger side power window does not work

We had this problem and just actually fixed it today. Had tried a passenger side door switch but that didn't help. We ended up buying and replacing the drivers side door switch and that solved the problem of our passenger side window not going up or down. The driver side switch is a one piece unit available from the dealer and it controls both driver and passenger side windows.

Since you didn't mention that the window was moving slower before it stopped moving at all, it sounds as though you have corrosion on the wondow controller in the driver side door. If qualified, take the door panel off, remove the plug and clean the contacts. If that doesn't work, I suggest buying the switch controller and installing it. Shouldn't have an issue after that. The drivers side door could cause the issue with the passenger door in some vehilces, but I cannot find any information stating that it should in your vehicle.

Passenger side power window will not go down.

The van could have a lockout feature (some came with it and some don't have it) and it should be referenced in the owners manual. It will be on the driver's side master panel (the one with all the switches) problem is, I have no info on how to unlock it. Does the window work with the passenger switch or from the master panel? There are separate circuit breakers on each window to keep one from taking both out. With key on accessory, (the radio should come on) try moving the passenger window switch back and forth 3 - 5 times quickly to see if that unlocks it.

Odds are she hit the switches in some combination and put the lockout into effect. I'd take it to a dealer and have one of the salesmen show you how to unlock it. Since they aren't selling cars these days, it will give them something to do.

Passenger window will not go up or down

I had the same problem a few years ago except my window was stuck up. There is a cable inside the door that controls the window (not sure what it's called). Anyway, that cable was broken so the motor was working but not the window. Take the door panel off and you should be able to see the cable and if it's still attached correctly.
