I had a similar problem in my old 89 Supra. The passanger side window would go down but not up. I bought a new motor but found the new motor had the same problem. After some googling I found that it could be the switch metal contact under the plastic switch. Took the plastic switch out and found the metal contact was corroded. I took some fine sand paper and sanded the contact down and Violla! the window started working again. In my case it wasn't the motor just a dirty switch.

Looking for wiring diagram for drivers side window switch for a proton savvy 2006 my window goes down not .wanting to by pass switch via linking the correct connections on cable plug .then if it works...

Not familiar with this car, but first you have to find the power wire to the switch-that will be one end of your jumper wire. Use a test light clipped to ground, turn key to on, and probe all the wire cavities till you find the hot wire to switch. Now pull out on the electrical connector and see if you can see the two wires going down to driver's door motor. Then see where they connect to the connector. When you touch the jumper wire end to one, it will be for either up or down, and the other motor wire when connected to hot jumper wire will be the opposite, either down or up.
If window is all the way up, jumping hot to up side will make no noise, and cause nothing. So you try the other motor wire to see if motor makes window go down. See, you have to jump hot wire to both to verify the motor works or not.

Override power window switch

Try the switch on the pass side door. Otherwise you need to remove the drivers door panel, access the switch, print a wiring diagram and jump power to the window motor with a jumper wire.

The driver side window rolled by itself and now won't go up but the other windows work fine

The drivers window is different than the other windows as it's has an auto down feature. This feature is in the power window master switch. This switch sometimes can be aquired at an auto prts store or they can order it, Of couse the dealer can get you one too but it wight cost more. If you just what to close the window you can find the wires going from the switch to the window motor and put power and ground on them and rool the window back up. This might be easier said then done if your not used to working on things. The power window switch pries up out of the door panel by putting a flat blade tool in the frount edge between the edge of the switch and the pannel pushing towards the swich and then after the catch is depressed prying up and the switch will come out. The master switch has all the pairs of motor wires for all the moters and a power and a ground wire. The power wire is only on with the key in the on position. The wires are yellow and brown and the power can come off of jumper wires from jumper cables or even a jump box. connect the wires positive one one neg on the other one way is up and the other way is down. If it goes the wrong way just reverse the way the wires are connected and it sould go the other way if you have troble with this you can remove the door panel and find the power window motors wire as they'res a plug in the wire and just connect the wires backwards and push the button to go down and it'll go up. Makes replaceing the switch sound easier but I've fixed many of them this way and then just let the wire unplugged so it can'nt be rooled down by accident.

1996 suzuki sidekick, power windows and door locks do not operate BUT doors will lock with remote. what could cause this, where do i look??

Your actual switches may have gotten wet, or have gone bad. You will need a jumper wire to test the switches. Remove the switch for each window and lock. Using the jumper wire, see if the each window will go up and down by jumping out each set of contacts. (Make the jumper take the place of the switch) Replace any window or lock switch that operates using the jumper, but doesn't work with the switch.

1989 chev celebrity window went down need to get back up how do I bypass / jump switch

take off the interior door panel and locate the window motor. if it is the drivers front window it has two wires going to it. One is a brown wire the other is Dark Blue. Provide battery pos to one wire and battery ground to the other. If window motor does not go up switch the jumper wires to reverse the window motor.

There is no power to window switch is ok but won;nt roll down driver side or passanger side need to no how to get driver side window down antil i get fixed

Remove the door panel, and use two jumper wires to the window motor. One wire goes to a good, non-painted surface on the metal body of the van, for a good ground. The other wire goes to a 12 volt source. Touch the two wires of the window motor with the two jumper wires.

Tries to go up? Switch the jumper wires around, and try again.

Windows will work only from driver side controls

I solved the issue by taking the switch apart and soldering a jumper across the contacts for the window lock. Even though the window lock is no longer wife is happy she can roll down here window.
