The window tracks may be worn and need to be replaced. You may get away with buying a dry silicon lubricant spray and with the tube nozzle, spray the silicon down on the side of the window tracks. That's where the glass window edge meets the door frame and down in the door. Keep me posted and this should help.

Drivers side power windows go down but not up.

Try replacing the switch. Sometimes the switch contacts on one side will wear out. You can use a multi meter to see if you have continuity through the switch. If you have it, then the window motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

Toyota corolla side window

The driver switch is called the master switch. When replacing this unit you need to perform what's called a ( relearn ). Turn the ignition switch to position 2 so that the dash lights come on. Then hold the window switch in the down position and keep holding it down for 10 seconds after the window is all the way down. Then make the window go fully up and hold the bottom up for 10 seconds after the window closes . Sometimes you my need to do this a few times to make it relearn . This performed properly should give you full operation of the windows. FYI. This may need to be done on every door. . This will also need to be done if you replace a window regulator of any door or door windows you replace.
Hope this helps. Mr Toofix

Driver side switch sticks/broken. Driver window

1. Seek a replacement switch via a local salvage yard.
2. Look in a Haynes manual ($20) for direct directions as to how to remove and replace it.

If the switch is simply sticking you can clean it using CRC QD Electronic Cleaner. Use the straw to shoot the cleaner in the gaps between the switch and face plate and then work the switch. (TEST A SMALL AMOUNT FIRST with a rag - this stuff can on occasion melt some plastics) better to know before you completely melt the button.

My lincoln drivers side window sticks sometimes can i clean the switch?

Had the same problem with power windows sticking, either the motor is old and getting weak, or, a quick check fix is that as the weatherstripping gets old around the window it dries out and gets hard, the window when it slides will tend to stick on the weatherstripping, try cleaning the weatherstripping around the window with alcohol, then soak the weatherstripping with armor-all, or some spray silicone lube, you will probably have to do this from time to time, otherwise you can replace the weatherstripping..

My drivers side electric window won't work

Hi Hawkeye1973

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.

If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.

You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.

Very best regards
