To quick test this to determine if the power window switch is working, keep the door open and watch the interior light carefully, press the window switch up and see if the interior light slightly flickers, if so the switch is making the trip to the power window regulator and the regulator needs to be replaced, however more times then none the power window switch is the culprit.
There is really and unfortunately no quick fix, except for a hopeful hammer blow to the side of the power window regulator motor.
No i am not kidding, as unprofessional as it may sound, if the switch is good and the problem is within the power regulator motor, a sharp, swift, but not too hard blow to the power window regulator can sometimes wake up the motor(possibly rust formation etc. from rain and dampness) and a good spraying of WD 40, however, if this doesnot work you will need to order the appropriate part from Auto Zone or the like , also when you have the door panel off check the supply wiring harness coming through the door near the front body hinges for any breaks etc.(usually encapsulated in a rubber conduit) and also inspect for any loose or broken connections to the circuitry inside the door.
Happy Motoring!!

    Sorry I wanted to add to the quick fix category that if the window switch is the culprit and you are not near a parts store to swap it out, pull the switch and with a test light determine which connector is the power feed, then determine which connector is for the power up, with a jumper wire simply jump the two and this should at least close your window till you get to a parts store for a replacement switch, don't be surprisede if you have to purchase the whole drivers side power window station as some are one piece.

Window wont raise


If its automatic, and all other windows raise with the button panel on the drivers door, then your problem is the motor within the door that raises or lowers the window. Easy quick fix.

If manual, the window probably got stuck and is jammed up within the door and needs to be bumped or put back on the track.

Power windows will not roll down or up


If your other switches don't work, and the master is not locked, you need a new master as it is keeping the others from working.

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down


Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.
