Honda element no power to either window

Since you have power, once in a while, the fuse must be good. Sounds more like a faulty ground connection. Check all body ground connections on the doors and under dash. Therein lies your problem. When something electrical goes south on me, I ALWAYS check grounds FIRST. That's normally always the answer.

Auto electric problem

ill pretend its just one window.
the drivers.
1-do check fuses.
2: check for 12vdc at motor while hitting up.
if 12v missing,(voltmeter tool) the switch or wires to it are bad.
track backwards, for 12v.
if the 12v is good, the motor slient its dead.
if the 12v at motor is good, and motor groans, the window is jammed.
remove motor and turn action by hand, if jammed find the cause.
some times the motor is bad and is just weak,
we prove that by checking the window, for free movement
if free, and motor cant left it the motor is weak and bad.
very common that, 1 winding in armeture is toast,

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not

was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

Electrical problems?

Reads like it is a problem for an auto electrician or someone with access to the vehicles wiring diagram - presumably at some point two circuits are crossing. More likely if it is a modern car, it maybe a bit of computerised hardware that needs a fix or replacement.

I have a 2000 maxima gle. The power window on the driver side went down two thirds of the way and will not go back up. When I try with the switch the window will go up about two inches and the goes back...

This can be due to the friction or misalignment of the glass moving channel. So if the channel was off the frame or the motor was misaligned there will be too much friction of the motor and so will not take the load to wind up or down. Please assist with your hand to see if the glass moves up or down while the switch is activated. If so the motor and the window assembly settings must be taken out and reset or the channel must be changed.

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine

Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.

Driver side power window only moves up a little bit at a time

Yes there is a problem with ur window motor. You should have an auto electrician to check it out. There are alot of things that can wrong with the motor though. If u want, u can remove the motor and connect it directly to the battery and observe how it operates. If it operates the saem way when winding up, it might need repairing or replacing
