Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
At first the driver side window on my 2006 dodge stratus would not roll down now none of my windows do
First I would check the fuse, if it is burned then it means there is a short in the system. It must be found and repaired before you can continue to check the rest of the power window system. If the fuse is burned, I would first suspect the power window switch,the power window relay, and last but not the least, the electric. motor. 1 time out of 100,000 or more times a wire if chafed or rubbing causing a short.
Most likely this is the case from what you tell me. Get yourself if you don't have a voltmeter or, just a 12 volt test lamp. First remove the door cover screws, door handle, locks etc., also remove the screws in the door switch drivers side. Then on the bottom of the door using a wide flat head screw driver gently pop the plastic tabs out so it don't look hacked. If your using a test light, connect one end, most of the time it's an alligator clip, connect it to a good ground, the door cross brace itself is a good ground and make sure it does not have paint on it. Touch the end of the light to the positive side of the battery to make sure the test light works OK. Connect the the light/lamp end to all the connections on the bottom of the power window switch ( drivers side ), one switch at a time, pushing the switch on and off to make sure all switches have power to both sides when button is pushed, if the test light lights while pressed on, then the switch's are good. If the switch tests good then I would have no problem buying a power window relay. Your Drivers side switch controls all windows that's why you check the power to that switch only. I would change the relay first if the fuse is OK because it's common to be the relay but, one never knows. I hope this is not too confusing but, it beats paying $$$$$$$$ to a dealer or repair shop if you can fix it yourself. And I have a feeling this is a easy fix. Good luck with your repair....tommyjg

If you have checked the fuses or circuit breakers, and nothing is wrong, you may have to remove the switch and try cleaning it with some electical cleaner. If you use a test light on the switch to make sure you have power there, that will help narrow it down, too. If cleaning it doesn't help, you may need a new switch.

SOURCE: windows will not work
I had the same problem with my '04 SXT only it wouldn't roll up. I held the switch and slammed the door and it worked. Not sure how long or how many times this is going to work, but it works for now.

check for power at that window motor plug behind door panel while operating window switch. No power? replace window switch. Have power? replace motor.
