You may have a broken power wire & it is usually in the driver's side door wiring harness at the flex point. Peal back the outer casing to expose the wires & repair any broken or frayed wires. You can solder & tape or use heat shrink if you have a heat gun. Good luck!

The window switch on the drivers door to raise and lower the rear passenger is not working. I was able to lower the window but now it is stuck in the down position. Is there a way to override and roll up...

  • So if I understand you correct the drivers door switch is not working for the rear window.
  • Try using the the switch on the rear door for that window then.
  • The master switch is great to work all windows but the rear window switch should still work as well even if the master switch on the drivers door fails.
  • Now if both switches should don't work then it may not be a switch failure at all. this could be a wiring issue or a burnt window motor/regulator.
  • In this case you will nee some help as you are going to "help" the regulator out. Once you get it up I advise to let it be until repaired. You don't want to stress the track up to much before the whole assembly is replaced (should this be the problem).
  • So if both switches don't respond the your going to grab the window (one hand on each side of the window) as if your palms are touching and pull up at the same time the switched is being pushed up.
  • It may take a bit to get it but it will be fine.
  • If the window is down in the door (in the way down position) then get your fingers in there and grab the window and slowly pull up on it. Make sure the switch is being pushed to roll the window up at the same time.
  • Once you get it up a bit then take it the rest of the way as explained above.
  • I have had to do this on a few occasions and it works fine.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

1998 VW Jetta GLS Manual Trans. The driver side power window won't roll down. From the same switch the front passenger window won't up but will roll down. The passenger side switch works fine; passanger...

If you have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.

Driver power window button will not work to close window

check to see if the weather strip around the window has bulged together and is stopping the window. If so, try to strisghten out rubber strip while also moving switch to up.

Need to know where the ground for the power window circuit is.

If the Windows work good from the other doors, You need to replace the Switches on the Driver Side Door. Once they are worn like this they have a Hard time Operating to Full Capacity.
