IF YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE POWER VENT WINDOW.IT MAY BE HYPER EXTENDED LIKE A KNEE OR ELBOW.TRY TAKING A SCREWDRIVER FROM THE OUTSIDE AND PUSHING THE HINGE INWARD JUST ENOUGH TO LET THE MOTOR WORK IT CLOSED.IF THE MOTOR ITSELF ISN'T WORKING PUSH THE HINGE JUST PAST CENTER THEN USE YOUR HAND TO CLOSE THE WINDOW PUSHING IT CLOSED WERE THE MOUNT IS UNTIL YOU CAN GET A NEW MOTOR.HOPE THIS HELPS

Add my "Thank You!" as this fix worked for me, too. My motor must be going bad as it works to open and close it as long as I don't go to fully open, but once the over-center locks the motor won't close it. I've ordered a new motor on-line and there is a youtube video on how to replace it which appears to be pretty easy. But this fix will keep my interior dry until the replacement arrives! Thanks!

Also want to chime in to say that I tried the screwdriver fix, too, and although I was very afraid I was breaking the hinge arm with the screwdriver (I had to push with considerable force and thought I heard something crack!), this did allow me to get it to bend, and then I was able to manually push the window closed. However, I'm now afraid to test the automatic button, for fear of the window getting stuck open again. And now I have a much bigger problem, as the heat in my van has apparently decided to stop working, and it's mid-October here in the Northeast, and I have to drive even further north into the mountains tonight. Grrrrrrrrrrrr. (Or should I say, "Brrrrrrrr"????). It is truly always SOMEthing. :-(

I just have to chime in here and say THIS WORKED for me! I simply observed the working window to see how the opening mechanism works. Once I saw that I knew what to push on for the stuck window and I was able to make the "joint bend" just a tad and once I did when I tried the switch again it worked.

THANK YOU!!!

The 30A fuse J11 in the totally integrated power module (TIPM) protects the driver side power sliding door module. The 40A fuse J3 in the totally integrated power module (TIPM) protects the left rear door module. If these two fuses are good, the modules may be defective.

Please refer to the owners manual under the fuse section.
You state that the rear window is slow, this is not a fuse issue.
Possibly a motor going bad but try lubricating the window channel with a dry silicone spray
