    Hello, so the switches aren't the same, but i had a friend take a look at the window and he discovered the cable wire needs to be replaced.. he said the switches are fine but the cable wire was tangled up..where do i go to get a cable wire? or do i need to have it professionally put on?

Hi, i take it their electric windows, if they are then if the drivers side and passenger side window switch is the same then you can swap them over just to do the window up then swap them back so as you can get the window up, then your going to need to go out and buy a new switch.

if the switches are not the same then the only real option you have is to buy another switch to operate the window with as this is the only way you can get it up without risk of shorting the motor out by crossing wires together.

if the switch are the same then you just pry them up with flat screwdriver and pull them out then un-clip the wires and swap them over, if how ever when you do this it still dont work then this would then point towards the motor packing up and this would mean taking the door card/panel off to replace.

let me know if the switches are the same and what happens when you swap them over ok

    No problem mate, let me know how you get on or if you need any further assistance ok

    If you can see the break then all you need to do is solder the wire back together and use electrical tape to make sure it dont short, you cant just buy the wire as it comes with the window regulator unit so fixing the wire would be your cheapest option, you could even cut the wire out and solder in a new piece of wire. this will be easy to do and will save you time and money

Yesterday I had the passenger's side window motor

Disconnecting the battery will cause this. It happened on my Mazda 6 and there should be instructions in your manual.
It will be something like this:

1. Turn ignition switch to "on" position.
2. Open passenger window completely from passenger side window switch.
3. Close passenger window completely from passenger side window switch, and hold switch for an additional 2 seconds.
4. Turn ignition back to "lock" position.
