Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Replaced motor and switch,i have power to switch just doesnt go up or down...
When a window switch is not being used, it has the ground circuit on both sides. Then when you move it to up or down, you apply power to one side of the motor. Thats how the motor is able to run in both directions.
So you should have power on one side or the other when you move the switch. Have you checked it for power and ground ?

SOURCE: electrical, wiring ?
you better test these two switches to be sure they are bad, as well as the motor. if you have an old battery that is sufficient to operate the motor alone for testing. test each switch with a continuity tester --- if they are both bad you probably have a wiring problem --- make sure there is nothing binding the window mechanism.

If you go direct to motor with jumpers, it should work, then reverse wires on motor to change direction. Don't forget to check wire loom in drivers door jamb, by hinges for a break, or bent/cracked/damaged wire(s) as well. That's a known bad spot for wire problems due to door opening & closing all the time, and wears out wires in there.

SOURCE: Passanger window wont go down
its very common for the contacts in the window switch to go bad no more than it cost to fix just get one and yes its common for the regulator and motor to go bad your problems in the switch

There is no seperate relay that controls the up function for your vehicle.
I would suspect a power switch as the root cause of failure, as the window runs down as designed.
