If the other windows work, the problem is not a fuse. The window regulator and window motor each could be bad. A glass shop can remove the door panel and replace the parts in about an hour. If you want to do it yourself, the salvage yards have the motors. But the left and right motors are not the same. The window regulator is plastic and old plastic is not reliable. If you are good with tools you need to take off the door panel, electric switches, speaker, and block the window up with wood and a clamp so you can get the motor out. The regulator takes a little patience to replace. By the time you are done you will have spent at least 4 hours chasing and replacing parts yourself.

Fix windows they wont go down any more,, fuses look ok

There can be several reasons. When you say you "fixed" the windows, it makes me wonder what was wrong with them before you started. The part inside the door is usually a window regulator. It has teeth to be moved by the gear on the electric window motor. The position of the regulator teeth is suppose to match the position of the window. If you imagine setting the window 1/2 open, then that is as far as the window will rise when the electric window motor cranks. The electric motor gear will only travel so many turns for each cycle of the motor switch.

Mixing motors on the wrong side of the car is something else that can go wrong if you change W motors. The W motors are not the same from front to front or rear to rear. They are often compatible diagonally (right front to left rear) (left front to right rear).

Finally, you can have a switch box for the auto up/auto down feature inside the door panels. You need to check for power at the W motor and then backtrack.

My 2004 lincoln navigator is giving tire pressure monitoring system fault and front of driver side is extreeme low and take long time to rise.what to do?

OK, the tpms is a separate issue from the front drivers' side being low and takes some time to rise.

The shock or strut may be leaking in the front.

I would check to see if the ride leveling has something to do with the tpms error showing up.

Also, check that all tire pressures are even around all 4 wheels.

Just replaced passenger front window on the 2001 v70. Do not remember if window stops an inch down or does it go all the way down?

I am not exactly sure on this model but most of the time the power windows on the front doors go down all the way. I would check the right passenger side door if it goes all the way down, then most likely the drivers side door should also. Usually the rear windows go down and stop an inch from being all the way down. Some cars are set up to lower the front windows only an inch then by pressing the window down button again, they will continue to roll all the way down.

2004 Grand Cherokee pasenger power window will not go up or down. Motor runs in short bursts when either side button is pressed.

Sounds like you need a new window motor, or perhaps the window is binding in the tracks. The short bursts you describe sound like the motor is drawing too much current, some systems have current limiting built in for detecting auto up and down limits. If the current rises too high from a bad motor or binding tracks, the system thinks the window is all the way down or up and shuts off.
