At the passenger switch its the Dark Blue and Brown wires.At the Master switch its the Light Blue and Tan wires. But I think your problem is a bad Master Switch

    I changed the master switch so I'll try by-passing the circuit with your solution.

  • Ted Schore Sep 03, 2010

    so you had already replaced the switch? that would have been good info to share. If I read your post correctly it would not go up with either switch, only down.

    I have the same problem,put in a new switch,still will go down but not up, no change. Will Go up if I jump power to the blue and brown wires. Is there a relay or module somewhere? Whats next?

  • Ted Schore Sep 29, 2010

    OK, which switch, the left (master) or the right? If it goes down, the wires are obviously good. So its a switch problem. The YELLOW wire supplies power to both switches. There are no relays, modules ect. Replace the RIGHT WINDOW SWITCH

    After some cracker smashed my window and getting it replaced at Speedy glass I could no longer do up the window. It worked when I left Speedy glass then the wifes friend opened the window and would no longer close. I used the jumper method and worked perfect. Thanks for the guidance. Scott

Rear windows won't go down

You also have Circuit Breakers for your windows, Or your Master Switch ,You can Test the Driver Control Switch or the rear switches by removing the Switches and using the connector Plug and a Jump wire try jumping accross the wires,if they go up or down you could have a Bad Switch,if nothing moves more than likely your Window Motor is bad. BUT first CHECK your Circuit Breakers ,It could be Labeled as accessery Relay or circuit Breaker.

Rear windows on 2003 Montana won't close, now that they're open. Is there 2 motor, one for each window. I;ve looked at the switch & all appears okay if it's the motor(s) are they easy to...

If the lockout switch on drivers door is "OFF"... Window fuse's and relay's may be up under passenger side dash or behind glove box.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes thats all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exsists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

The passenger window will go down but not up got a new motor for it tried it same result

Pop the switch Panel out. Then pop the wire block off the switch you will see holes with metal in it. Take 2 paper clips and connect the brown and black wire. Then the dark blue and yellow wire. Window will go up. Then just get a new switch

2001 montana passenger window wont go up cam i apply power to wire to at least get the window to go back up

You can certainly try.

With the switch unplugged on the passenger front door you can use a jumper wire from the yellow wire (power supply to the switch) and the dark blue wire. Then ground the brown wire. The window should go up. If it doesn't check power on the yellow wire. If there is no power try running a wire directly from the battery.

If it still doesn't go up the window motor may be bad. You can try tapping it with a screw driver and see if it goes up.

It is also possible that the window regulator is broken. If that the case than there is nothing you can do besides mechanically remove the window from the regulator and tape the window in the closed position until the regulator can be replaced.

Replacing passenger side mirror

If you are replacing the entire mirror assembly you have to remove the door panel.

First remove the switch plate by prying upward at the rear of the switch plate and unhook the connectors. Then remove the two armrest screws. The door panel then has to be pryed away from the door to release the clips. They don't give up easily so yo may have to force it a bit. Once the clips are loose pull up on the panel to remove it from the window reveal molding. The mirror is held on with three 10mm nuts. remove those and unhook the wiring from in the door. Install is reverse of removal.

Good Luck
