You're lucky it moves at all! The most common is for there to be gunk in the window switch. If you feel adventurous, it is easily possible to disassemble the switch and clean it up. Gently pry the surrounding trim up that holds the drivers master switches. There are spring clips at the front and rear that hold it in. You will see that it contains 4 identical switches. Gently pry out the drivers switch and unplug it from the harness. When you have the switch by itself, you will see the rocker is held on and pivots on two small pins on either side. Read carefully: When you do the following, be somewhere you can find small flying parts...not in the yard! With a small screwdriver, ever so gently pry the top hinge off of the pivot pin. When you do this, a tiny spring can fly off so go slowly! You'll probably see a mass of crud down in the guts of the switch and 2 silver BB's.Clean it all out w/ a solvent such as brake cleaner spray, replace the 2 BB's and spring and clip the top of the swtch back onto the pivots.
If this is more than you want to do, you can either buy a new switch or swap w/ a back window switch that works.

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.
