Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

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!

How can I tell what the problem is with a front, passenger window which is stuck down?

you can put it up manually by taking the door apart to get to the mechanical parts inside the door. (go to youtube it will help you to not destroy points where the clips hold the door innards in..)

My daughter has destroyed a number of automatic window switches, interestingly in the same direction. window goes down, not back up. From constantly rocking the switch towards the back of the vehicle. Replace the switch and I bet everything will be fine... (you'll still have to remove the inside door panels so that video look up with still be needed) I got all my switches from china on ebay and have had excellent results each time... cheap too, honda wanted $125, and I got mine for like $13 delivered...took a week, so you may need to go in and put the window up in the meantime...

The rear windows on my 2000 chevy tahoe won't work. i can hear power in the buttons when i press them but they don't move.

Hello -

The motors for your car's power windows may be failing and will need to be replaced. I've personally experienced the same problem, more than once, with a different auto make and model.

Or, the window glass may have come off the track which holds it.

Unless you can do the work yourself, you will eventually need to take your car to a reputable auto mechanic and have the work done. It is not inexpensive, by the way.

The information here may help you remediate the problems temporarity:
Ignore the auto loan ads. :)

Best wishes.

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

Instrument Cluster Problem

The dealer is just going to replace the cluster because they don't have the ability to fix it.
My suggestion is to get a used one from a wrecker. Note that if the odometer is included, you may need to document actual mileage for future reference..
