I would check the overhead buttons there are two one opens the door, and the other beside it that shows the van crossed out, disables the electric sliding door feature. try playing with that, Also remember, that vehicle must be in PARK for the electric sliding door to open. Make sure the power lock on that door is working, and check the child safety lock when you have it open by the doors catch. Hope that Helps You.

If you are having a motor problem in your passenger-side door, it would be less costly if you went to a junk yard that has a door that matches your particular car and buy it. You'll spend less money that way. You may have to paint the door eventually, but at least you won't have to spend a fortune on replacing the motor. The choice is yours.

Passenger side window fell down and wont go back up. Motor seems to be running. Might be off the track. Dont have an owners manual and not sure how to get to the window.

replace the door!! No "just kidding" you realy need a manual, but, other wise, you must remove the door pannel each door is different, but the pannel must come off, then you can get to the track, you will have to see why the window is not functioning because several things can be wrong. you will have to find the bad parts and repair or replace them... go slow and take your time.
dont be afraid of messing up. Ive gone to the junk yard before and looked for a car like mine that had the door apart all ready and looked it over and studied it before i took mine apart.
some times you can practice on one at the junk yard !!!
Not much help sorry! good luck!

I can't get my driver side window to go up

Figure out whether it is power (button) or manual (crank). go to ebay and search for "new window regulator 99 dodge ram". buy one and take it and the dodge to an auto glass shop, found in yellow pages, and pay them 60 bucks to remove the old one and put the new one in..

The driver side window button does not roll the window up or down, but the other windows work fine. Could the problem be in the button or the motor?

Its the window switch. I stopped getting "clicking" action on my driver side/driver window button, so I switched it with one from a back window (meaning I couldnt roll down the back one from the driver side control anymore. This was temporary. I went to the junk yard and of 12 98/99 devilles, all of them had the switch pulled already. It is a pretty common problem I guess. New aftermarket cost around $80. All you need is a screwdriver to get at it, plug in the new one and you are fine.

I have save problem, the plastic fasteners that hold the cable get brittle and breaks, when this happens, the cable gets twisted and keeps coming off. .This is a Dealer or Junk Yard item, I went to a Pick a Part and for $30 got the whole elevator. Took door panel off, removed fastening screws, armed the whole thing on a table, slide it in, hook windows' 2 screws and that was it.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

Power window on driver side does not open either side of windows.. do I need a main switch on driver side. or do I need both switches for both windows

First: Does the passenger side switch open the window. If so it is probably the master switch on the drivers door. On most of those the driver side is a master switch meaning one unit with 4 switches. Its very easy and cheap if you can find one at a junk yard just swap it out. You should be able to pry out the switch from the door panel and then click out the switch and plug in the new one.

My passenger window won't go up from their button or mine and sometimes the drivers side doesn't go up

I have dealt with this on an Oldsmobile Silhouette...basically the same car. First thing to check is the fuse for the Power Windows, located in the fuse panel inside the cabin (open the passenger side door and it should be on the end of the dashboard). If the fuse is good, there is a strong possibility it is the switch. An ideal situation would be to test to figure out which one is bad, if you have another van of the same family (Olds Silhouette, Chevy Venture). If you can't, the options are to get both switches and replace both, or go to a junkyard and try what you can, or hit a dealership and have them diagnose, but not fix, the problem. Replacing the window switch is cake.

My passenger side window on my 2005 taurus sel. will go down, but the motor doesnt make a noise, nor does the winow go up when i hit the down button on eather door.

Check the windows switch on driver side. Most of the time if driver side switch goes bad it effects everything to work properly. There's really no way to test the switch unless you have volt meter tester, switch are 40 bucks new and 10-15 used at juck yard. If your driver door switch working fine than check you regulator and motors. to get to it you will have to take the door apart and its painful and not easy task but if little mechanical incline with proper tolls, you do fine. Before you tear into the door, check or replace the door switch first, 99% of the time it solved the problems, assuming the window motor is working. hope that help..good luck!

1999 Pontiac Montana passenger sliding door stopped working.

Verify the wiring harness which passes under plastic step & carpet at front passenger side. This wiring harness goes from the firewall to the pillar on the right side and some have crimped connectors in them to act as junction between two or more wires (ususlly the 12volt feed), which deteriorate with time, especially with Salt & Water. Then the electric sliding door stops working and even driver the electric seat can loose power.
