Hello, yesterday I rolled down the driver window and won't come up, when I press the switch to go up, nothing happens, but when I press to go down I can here the relay in the door switch going on and off. When I got home I removed the panel and applied 12V directly to the motor, the window came up easily. But now I wont go down or up. So I know that the motor is good and I am thinking If its not the master switch console that is the problem.
Anyone have an idea what the problem might be, before I take it to the garage. Thank You

well windows are usually pretty simple. It could be the window switch, the regulator bound up, or the motor itself went out. try jiggling the switch, actuate the switch over and over..see if you get any movement. sometimes smacking the side panel will jolt the motor. If that doesn't work i usually take off the door panel, try supplying the motor power, if that works that tells me the switch is bad. if the motor doesnt do anything even with 12volts supplied, then that tells us the motor is bad. if you hear the motor work but its grinding and nothing happens, the regulator is bad. Let me know if you have questions, i can help you further
it could be a bad driver door master switch or bad window motors, the best way to pin point the problem is to remove the door panel off every door that doesnt work and then test for power and ground while hitting the switch, if it has power and ground then motor is no good,start there, another option is to test for power and ground at the switches,
Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.
Sounds to me like you have a bad power window relay. Start by checking the power supply to the relay. Should the relay be bad replace and the window movement should be restored. If this doesn't take care of the problem you may need to replace the master switch in the driver door. The master switch allows all the other switches to do their job. If it malfunctions none of the windows will work. Hope this info helps, good luck!!!
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.
