Re: passenger side power window not going all the way up;...
It is all controlled by a pcm. Most likely it lost it's synchronization. There is a hall effect sensor inside the window motor to let pcm know position of window. There should be 2 detents in your switch 1 being manually up the other express up. If you hold the button all the way down it is the express mode. Try holding it in the 1st detent and see if it goes all the way up. If it does when window is all the way up hold the switch in that position for approximately 10 seconds and will resynch. your window express mode. then try window operation If it does not go all the way up at all there is most likely a mechanical issue. Hopefully I have been helpful

Check the main fuse box next to the battery, # 8 max fuse powers IGN MAIN 2 Ignition
Switch to Fuses (I/P): BCM PRGRM, FRT HVAC LOW/MED BLWR, FRT WPR/WSHR,
HVAC/DRL, MALL/RADIO/DIC, PWR QRT VENT, RR HVAC, RR WPR/WSHR, SWC ACCY
& PWR WDO Circuit Breaker.
#3 circuit breaker is the front window breaker, try swapping it out with another breaker beside it and thats located in the side dash panel also.
The common cause of failed power window function is the switch on the doors going bad from dirt. Does the power window on the passenger side go down with the passenger side switch?? if it does then its a bad drivers side and and try cleaning the switch with electrical contact cleaner. 95% of the time this will save you from buying a new switch.
Drivers side on the side of the dash. When you open the drivers door you will see it on the side ,it will be position # 15 and its a circut breaker which means if the drivers side works the passenger one will as well.. They both use the same circut breaker. I suggest checking the wires in the rubber boot between the passenger door and the body in the door jamb area the wires are light blue and the other is tan if my memory serves me correctly. good luck
REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL TO GET TO THE WINDOW MOTOR. REMOVE THE CONNECTOR ON THE MOTOR. LOOP A TEST LIGHT FROM BOTH TERMINALS. WITH THE KEY ON AND BOTH SWITCHES IN PLACE, CHECK TO OPERATION OF THE SWITCHES. IF THE LIGHT COMES ON IN BOTH DIRECTION THE WINDOW MOTOR IS BAD.
THERE IS A CIRCUIT BREAKER BUILT INTO THE WINDOW MOTOR. SOMETIME HITTING THE MOTOR WITH MAKE THE CIRCUIT BREAKER RESET BUT THE MOTOR WONT LAST LONG DOING THAT.
ALSO TRY PULLING DOWN ON THE WINDOW WHILE TRYING THE SWITCHES. THE WINDOW COULD JUST BE STUCK. THIS HAPPENED TO ME.
double check the fuses, etc first to see if anything blew. there should be circut breakers to check as well (consult your manual). have someone look at your wiring to make sure it hasn't corroded inside the doors.
Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.
Can you hear the moter or do interior lights dim when pressing button? If so remove door panel and lubricate tracks and rolers using lithium grease lube only the tracks that do not come in contact with glass.
Check the connections at the switch and at the moter with a volt meter if there is power than time for a new moter. no power than check at drivers side switch. If no power there and fuse is ok you have a open in wires and will have to trace entire circut
