Question about Cars & Trucks
The passenger switch doesn't work but the driver side switch for the passenger window does work. need advice?
You may want to check your fuses ,,but sounds like a bad window motor or a lose connection to the window motor ,,if all other windows are working ,,no need to check the fuses

Most likely cause is the drivers side switch has faulty contacts inside it ,try some switch cleaner but low hope for this but ?? have known it to work

I had the same problem with my driver side window, so I just replaced the power window motor. It took less than an hour, cost about $35 or $40 and it works perfectly now.

If you have already replaced the passenger side switch and it still doesnt work its a good chance that there is a pinched wire in the door itself. However usually it wont work from the drivers side either. But I still suggest looking there first.

the switches need cleaning ,they have contacts in them that get dirty you can spray contact cleaner on them or use emery paper to file them, they are not to hard to pull apart

the drivers door switch is most likely bad, they get used the most and wear out first, the connector on the back of switch may have come loose and not making good electrical contact, remove switch and check connector and if still not working need new switch, the windows are all on same circuit and either all work or none work so not fuse. extremely rare is a short in wired but not likely.

SOURCE: Looking for wiring diagram for
You'll need to pull the door panel and check for power and ground at the 2 wire connector located near the window motor (there should be a dark blue wire and a brown wire). With a test light there should be power on one of the two wires at any time. If there is power on both wires with the switch in the up position than the switch is bad. If the only wire powered up in the up position is the dark blue wire than try tapping the motor while holding the switch in the up position. If it starts to work than the motor is bad.
On a side note check for power with all the connectors plugged in. You can also jump the connections at the motor. Supply a ground to the brown wire and supply power to the dark blue wire and the window should go up.
