Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My driver window switches are INOP, and i can't pass NJ inspection without the driver window working...The passenger windows will only go up or down in 2 inch increments, sometimes they work fine!?...any ideas?
Sounds to me like you may have a either a bad switch or a bad ground for the widows when a mechanic looks at this problems we check grounds first before replacng any parts also check power wires to the switch make sure there true battery voltage there. hope ths helps Thunder boltz

Did you try checking the wiring in the rubber boot between the front door and the body? That's typically what causes strange electrical behavior in the power windows. The wires eventually break after so many open and shut cycles of the door, and the wire fatigues or possibly pulls away. What you have to do is see if you are getting battery voltage to the window motor, if so then question the motor or connections, if not...start with the switch for battery voltage. Unfortunately, this is not going to be a fast resolution. Jetta electrical problems are very very common. Also, these vehicles are known for the plastic clips breaking down over time, mostly from summer heat and eventually wearout or break, this may be what is wrong with the passenger side.

Check your fuses under the drivers side steering wheel. Look for the one that says "pwr windows" Pull it out and see if it is burned out. Replace it with the correct number fuse. Have the window motor checked out by removing the door panel and checking to see if the switches are applying power to the motor and reversing the current polarity. I would start out by replacing the drivers side window control switch with one from the local junkyard or click on the link below to order one from ebay.

Hello. Each window has it's own little motor. The driver's window is always the first to go. If you want to replace the motor yourself, just get the driver's door power window assembly from your auto parts store. The assembly includes the motor already mounted to the track so it is a quick fix.
If you are not into doing these jobs yourself contact any body shop or even an autoelectric shop and to get your best price. Regards, Joe
