1994 Dodge Caravan driver's door window won't go up. Pushing the switch to go down works so there is power to the switch and motor, but it won't go up. Need to know how to remove door trim to complete switch troubleshooting. Thanks.

Start by removing the plastic insert at the door handle. This can be pried out with a screw driver, remove the door handle, prior out the plastic tabs, remove the screws there will be approximately four or five screws, lift the panel up and pull awar from the door. Remove the door regulator, you do this by using a punch and pundh out the rivets, then you drill out the aluminum holding in the glass using 1/4 inch drill bit, remove the door regulator and check for damage, you also need to remove the door motor and take it apart. The door motor will have three plastic plugs in the motor remove these, you can purchase new plugs at any auto store for $8.51, howevwer I would recommend you replace with ball bearings which can be purchased for $.64 cents each at any hardware store, pack the motor with wheel bearing grease and replace. You will need 1/4 inch bolts and lock washweer and nuts to replace the door regulator. Normally the switch will not be the problem. I would recommend you replace all the door regulators and rebuild all the motors. If one is going bad the others will follow. Expect to take allday to complete the job. Door regulators can be purchased on line for around $18 to 30 dollars. Good luck.

Own a 1996 Dodge Caravan. Power window doesn't work on drivers side, nor for the rear side windows. Replaced the power window switch and this did not solve the problem. The only window that works is...

nitescot, What you can try is to open up the rubber boot running from the body of the vehicle to the door. The constant opening and closing of the door will sometimes cause the wires inside the boot to break. This is a common problem when it comes to power windows. Open the boot with a knife being careful not to damage the wires inside. Look for any broken wires. Repair as necessary. Good luck with this.

I have a 2000 dodge caravan sport. My rear windows will not open. I have changed the switch and they opened (the front windows work just fine and the door locks too) but the rear window will not close...

sounds more like the wiring in drivers door faulty- worked to open after you changed it - but won't close it now- remove door panel- unplug and replug switch and try it- could be as simple as that

2002 power window dodge caravan pass side window wont go up or down. works w/ the main dr side control. where would the fuse be for this component? any other thoughts to fix this cheaply

The only problem with this vehicle is that it needs a new window switch on the passenger side door.If the main switch on the drivers door works and the one on the door that the window won't go up on won't work it replace the switch on that door they all work on the same fuse.

My 1994 dodge grand caravan all of a sudden the dash display continually now says "door ajar", when all doors are closed. I think its the sliding door, but its obviously completely closed/not sticking...

When the doors close on a 1994 model they usually make contact with a switch. The switch should be visible on the body of the vehicle, check all of your switches and clean or replace as neccessary.
