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.

Most common problems is the main driver switch, they tend to go bad over time from wear and loose its contact. I would began replace or test the main master windows switch first before tearing into the door. the switch is fairly cheap on ebay or a junk yard. If the master switch is good, than you will have to open up the panel and inspect the track and regulator, rearly the window motor fail, the most common part fail is the regulator wires gets mangle up and become a bird nest or worned out pulley causing the window not to roll down and caused the motor to lock up. if the regulator is good than it will be the motor.

If it does not make any noise, or sound like its getting any power, most likely its the switch.

SOURCE: 2005 Chrysler Town & Country. Passenger side window problem.

HAVEK 1005 sounds right on track.... but also try this, usually works well for non functional power windows, specially Caravans.

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

NOW, for the naysayers that says you must replace power window motors etc, at $$$ cost because the above fix does not work, or is not long lasting fix, or less than a "professional fix".... Well then, when the window fails to operate again, apply same fix again at that time.

I have fixed my van this way numerous times (usually once a year), and to all local friends I recommend this fix too, likewise do the same and are happy with the solution.

SOURCE: passenger side power window does not go down

Electric window motor seized. Those motors have internal copper brushes that usually lock after time. Some times a quik test is to get to the motor and tap it with a wrench while pressing the switch to get it unseized. ( Not a fix ! ... still needs replaced ).

SOURCE: How to repair Power Window Switch on front

The reason that they go down but not up is because they are usually binding in the track inside the door. You can remove the door panel and grease it with silicone grease to fix the problem. Usually its not the switch, but if you press it too much the switch will get burned out because it overheats inside from the current. If you remove the door panels, you should be able to switch the left and right switches to trouble shoot the switches. If you switch them and the right one goes down now, then you know the old right switch is bad.

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

My passenger window on my 2004 chevy malibu will not go up. both switches from the driver's side and the passenger's side "up" switch does not work


i believe that there is also a window switch on the drivers side that has a x marked on it, if so, push in this button, it could be in the position to prevent your passenger window from going up or down. this i believe is a safety factor, from the corporation. if after checking the button that i mentioned, and if the window still doesn't work, then check your fuses and relays, under the hood, in a black box, located on the drivers side.
