This can happen if car sits without being used for awhile. Take door panels off and spray the heck out of the electric window motor, with "PB Blaster", then while pushing window switch up and down, tap the motor lightly with a hammer. Do this to the switches too. the PB Blaster gets inside and cleans the contacts of the switches and the motor armature. If the windows start to work, spray the motors again, while rolling the windows up and down. If none of this works, the motors probably need replaced. Also after fixing window operation, be sure to put some type of greese in the metal tracks (not the black side window, channels) silver ones below the window, where the plastic guides of the regulator, ride,. White lithium greese is best to use.

Driver's window switch not working. Feels different. How do I trouble shoot to tell what I need to repair/replace? Can I use the window switch on the passenger door to replace driver's window switch?

Replace switch. Passenger switch
is not wired the same, will not re-
place the drivers side switch. You
can check for continuity if you have
a meter that has voltage, resistance
readings on it. With the switch pushed
to the on position put a red or black
wire to each prong . If the meter
stays at zero or does not move
the switch is bad.

2008 Kia Amanti power seat is not working on the drivers side, passenger side works

You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

1998 Rav 4 power windows.. Front Passenger window will not roll up from master or passenger side. No noise, need new motor

Each system is bad. The windows need regulators(they come with motors) the radio probably died(check fuse). And the mirror switch is bad(Since you still have power to the drivers window).
