Passenger side front window does not go up or down when either the passenger side window button is pushed or the driver side button for the passenger window is pushed. Also, I am sure I will probably have to pull the door cover to get to the problem if it is what I am thinking it is. How does the door cover come off? Thanks Mike
Yea your right on that one, but to be sure test the regulator connector with a test light to be sure their is power getting to the motor. to remove the panel their will be a few screws around the panel and some snap clips on the back side of it, disconnect any connectors and be careful with the plastic clip for the door handle.

I repaired one of these recently, Remove the button assembly. On the back of the button there will be some small holes, spray in a quality switch cleaner or WD40. If that does not cure it you can strip the switch down to the contacts then clean it using a cotton bud. If the switch rattles when you shake it then the contacts have broken inside.
It sounds like everything else and the wiring is okay, only that button on the driver's switch is not working. I would try a new switch, if you see nothing wrong with the electrical plug for it when you take it off. If that down wire was broken somewhere from the driver switch to the passenger door, I don't think the driver's switch would work for it either way, up or down. And same, neither would the passenger switch work. I think the button for down is not making contact somehow, and right in the switch.
The problem is that you probably have pushe dhte rear window button thinking it wasthe front window button. Have you ever pushed the rear window button thinking it was the front and then push harder. Inside the switch ther are little plastic pins. Open the switch and turn the little pns around and you should e fine. you cna e-mail me if you like and I can tell youhow to fix it...firstname.lastname@example.org
vice grip? you're lucky you didn't shatter the window.
So only the passenger front window is out based on what you're describing. Or are you trying to say all the passenger windows are out? (you have three passenger windows)
I am going with just the front passenger being out and that neither the switch on the driver's door or the switch on the front passenger door work to control the window. It's rare that both switches would die at the same time, so that rules that out. Now you said you pushed the button and the window does not move, if you don't hear a sound at all, odds are the motor is toast, if you do hear a sound, then the regulator may be stripped or broken.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be
able to remove the motor which will be secured down by a few bolts
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.
Krischen, Same problem appeared on my car, and sometimes it helps if you shut the passenger door at the same time as pushing the button to make the window go up, but mostly it's not something you can fix. They just wear out like most other things on this car
