It is a wiring issue very possibly. I have the same vehicle and took the door panel off to check the regulator motor. When I jumpered the motor directly to a battery it would run the window both up and down (by reversing battery polarity), so there must be a control wire issue. Also, the master control on the driver's side would allow the winder to go down but not up too. A common issue is the wire that controls the up position to break between the driver's door and the passenger door.

My 2005 kia spectrum passenger front window goes down but not up.i have replaced motor and no luck. what should i do?

You only replace a motor if it quits

It is a DC Motor & will run in either direction

Did you apply power to the old motor or replace
a perfectly good motor?

If it goes down & not up,wouldn't you conclude that
the switch is bad, in the up position?

Replaced blower motor in my 2001 kia sportage ex, fan only works on high. Any suggestions?

It could be the blower motor resistor, the high position feeds full 12 volt power directly to the blower motor. All lower settings route through the blower motor resistor. It is usually located under the passenger side dash, not far from the blower motor. Two screws secure it to the heater box.

My passenger rear window will go down but not up and its a 2002 kia sportage...where to start

Thru much testing we have found this problem to be relative to the lock out at the master switch. Have not figured it exactly but when the master switch for the rear passenger window is held in the up position the rear works just fine up and down. The only wire diff on that side is the lock out. Still testing, may be that wire shorted to the body or the master switch may just be bad or wired incorrectly.

No voltage on 2000 kia sportage drivers side power window

the switch on the passenger door is defective, replace it, the fact it (the window) works from the drivers door confirms this is the correct solution.
