Power is good, make sure you have ground on both sides when you use the switch.
I'm guessing per your description, you will not have a ground on one side of the switch.

The switch reverses polarity when you push the button for up or down.
Let me know,
Regards,

Fiesta Mark 6 passenger window power to switch ok and power to moter ok goes up but will not come down when on the car . If you take out the moter and check it on a bench it goes up and down


When you bench it, the is no toque applied to the motor. That's why it works. There is a built in heat sink in them. Gets hot, cuts off. It takes more torque to push it up. Replace it. Might want to replace the regulator also.

I have a ford territory 2006. Passenger side power window goes down but will not go up.


Not necessarily. If the window has limit switches at top and bottom, then the bottom switch needs reset because when you push the up button there's no power put to the motor because it thinks the window isn't all the way down. Check for limit switch at bottom and reset it to go lower.

My 2005 chevrolet cavalier window will go down but not up only on driver's side what do you think the problem is. i can not hear the motor humming when it does this


at the switch verify you have power one side of the switch is up the other side is down. If you have power for down you probably have power for up the contacts get dirty but you have more than one, one switch in the central cluster and one on the door try them both. this will indicate the bad one one of the tricks i use is. Apply power the the regulator watch the function then switch the power. is it slillm only goes down its the regulator

Sounds like your drivers side window regulator motor gear is bad as far as the other windows drivers door switch is most likely bad if you dont have experience working on electrical or have never taken apart a door panel I would recommend seeing a mechanic. To check the switch you have to disassemble passenger door panel accesa the window regulator motor disconnect the weatherpack connect hook up multimeter and test for power while having an assistant push the window switch down

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)

POWER WINDOWS NOT WORKING & POWER WINDOW/REGULATOR ISSUES


It can be issue with motor itself. If it's not going up, then how its working down. But still it feels like weak window motor or is issue with power window switch. Get the voltage tested at switch and motor. Also try another working window motor at not working window side.

You remove the regulator & then the motor from it

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine


Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.
