    tried to move the window by hand but it doesnt move u . do u think that it off the track?

    if the motor runs and window doesn't move the regulator is the most likely cause. can you physically move the window by hand?

The regulator is most likely broke from the motor. you can take off the door panel fairly easily, and look inside to be sure before ordering parts. some of those use teflon balls to commutate the motor to the regulator, and they just get eaten up over time. i have in the past replaced those teflons balls with ball bearings of the same size without any more trouble. those windows are hard to knock off track, and if it is not moving by brute force i would say the problem is either where the motor connects to the regulator or the regulator itself. hope this helps... dustang

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.

You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

Front electric windows will no longer go up or down.

The electric windows will not go up or down.Its controlled by the motor.If the motor is faulty/ short it will not let the window work.The motor gets power from switch( window switch).If the switch is short, then it can also be the issue.Both are 12 volt part.It has to be checked by meter to confirm, the problem.If both checks out ok, then in that case, the Fuse are to be checked in fuse box under dash. -------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Sounds like you need a window motor. Try hitting in center of door trim panel to see if you can get it to work if so replace motor.

2000 Grand AM GT front passenger window isn't working.

Not 100% on yours whether all separate fuse or just one main, but it should be marked in fuse panel, or underside of cover, and check power distribution box under hood normally close to battery for fuse also.

Driverside elecric window wont go down.could it be the switch or a fuse.2000 grand voyager

If all the other windows work then it will not be the fuse (sorry) and i would say the motor will normally freeze up before the switch will stop working for just one window.

If you are up to taking the panel off and unpluging the motor you could check to see if the motor is getting power with a simple test light grounded to the car body and tested on each wire as you push the switch up and down.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Electrical issues.

the button that pushed in when you close the door could be bad its literally like a $10 part and plugs in and is only held in with one screw. My interior lights used to flash on and off and i replaced that and now good as new, but you would need to figure out which door is doing it by pushing the button in manually
