Sounds like the window switch or the wiring going to the window motor has a short. There could be a pinched, or shorted to ground power wire from the switch to the motor.

Window won't go up

Watch the dome light as you push the button, if it dims slightly, the motor may be bad, if it does not dim, the switch may be bad, keep fiddling with the switch if the light does not dim. You have to watch it very carefully.

My left side power window won't go up on my 1997 F 150

Either your window motor is bad or master switch. do this,push on the switch that has the bad window and very carefully see if dome light dims in vehicle while pushing switch like there is a load in the electrical system. if it dims you know your circuit is good and window motor is bad. if nothing happens,like no sign of electrical load,your circuit has a problem,most commonly window switch is bad. you should hear a relay clicking when pushing switch if switch is good. hope it helps

Headlights dim signifigantly when power windows roll up or down

This should never happen if everything is normal. It sounds like your alternator is bad also have your battery tested. These parts are about six years old and that is when they usually fail. Check your fan belt is tight and not falling apart.

Window problems

Sometimes it's a bad regulator, sometimes they just stick in the run channel from a lack of use. Open the drivers door, turn the key on with the engine off and look at the dome light while pressing the window buttons. If the light dims slightly, the window motor is getting power. If it is just stuck, you can smack the center of the door panel with the side of your fist while pushing down on the button to jar it loose. Then lube the run channels and work the window a few times up and down. Sometimes you have to remove the door panel and smack the motor with a hammer to get it moving. The odds of all 3 regulators being bad at the same time is slim. Hope this helps.

I have a 94 Cadillac Deville and the driver's side window won't roll down. All other windows work. What could this be?

most likely the motor inside the door that operates the window has failed, U can test this in a simple way I have used for years, in a shaded area or in the evening press the down button of the window switch with the door open if the dome light dims ever so slightly the motor is no good, if it doesn't dim then the switch is the problem

2006 dodge gran caravan driver's side power window doesn't work

The power window control panel just snaps in place. Usually, a small thin blade screw driver can be inserted at the edge of the panel, and the panel can be lifted up.
The switch is a sealed unit and it is very difficult to "jump".
If your dash lights dim, when the button is pressed, this may indicate a significant power draw. It most likely would be that the motor is bad.

Passenger side power window wont roll up

The problem may be in the wiring which if you pull up the carpet on the front passenger side by removing the door floor trim and lifting the carpet you will see the wiring underneath. Probably laying in water or has been. Look for splices in the wiring which will have corroded. Repair the wiring then check the fuse.
Another problem may be in the motor found inside the door. The brushes may have worn out. If so you need to replace the motor. Ususally the drivers side will fail first since it is the most used.

Power windows

Try to only roll one at a time up or down if you push more than 1 button at a time it will put a strain on the battery also try getting your battery tested to see if a cell is out. good luck!
