You need a new Window Regulator. Save a headache and buy it from the dealer.

SOURCE: drivers side window has fallen down moter runs but

I have lost my manual. The service dept. won't show me where the location of the fuse box is, under the dash. Once in a while I blow a fuse from the lighter.(used for my cell charger). I know that it's an easy replacement, but don't know exactly where it is.
Also, I was looking into purchasing a "Car Md", & was told to plug into the OBD2 output, but, I also, don't know where that is. Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: My drivers side window only goes down 1

if the noise is crunchy then the cable is frayed and needs replacing, if the noise is just a humming then either the motor is too weak and needs replacing or the mechanism is out of alignment and needs resetting.
if the window is loose try wiggling the window as you press the button, if you can make the mindow fully descend like this then its definately the alignment, this can be sorted by taking off the door panel and loosening the bollton bolts of the window guide, aligning them so the window is firmly bun not tighlt held, then tighten the bolts and test the window, you may need to try a slightly looser setting or slightly tighter setting to get the best performance out of the window, oiling the moving parts of the window mechanism cant do any harm, just dont get oil on the window itself or it will smear for weeks...

Fiesta Mark 6 passenger window power to switch ok and power to moter ok goes up but will not come down when on the car . If you take out the moter and check it on a bench it goes up and down

When you bench it, the is no toque applied to the motor. That's why it works. There is a built in heat sink in them. Gets hot, cuts off. It takes more torque to push it up. Replace it. Might want to replace the regulator also.

Passanger window stopped in the up position, a month later the driver window did the same thing. Today I shut the door and driver window went down and now stuck. Switch or moters?

I would say switch. How about the passenger side window switch itself?
I have an 05 Accord coupe and so far so good, but for what it's worth my
son's Mazda 3 driver side window was stalling now and then and I was
actually able to clean the switch contacts with alcohol. Heard Honda
sometimes has trouble addressing window problems, so there may be
other components involved here.

On my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8, the driver door control for the rear passenger side window does not work up or down, but the window control on the rear passenger side door works to make the window go...

Check wiring harness in between door and body, most likley there is a broken wire in this harness.
To get the window up you will need to remove the panel and apply a power and ground direcly to the moter connector. if it does not go up then reverse the polarity

380 ES Mitsubishi 2006 model door window control

It possably isnt the switch it maybe the motor itself if you open the door panel and disconect the moter run 2 wires to the main battery becarefull because when you do this the motor may or may not work if the window goes up or down when you do this then your moter is good if not replace motor otherwise switch your wires from one switch to anouther that you know is good and try to see if it works then your switch may be bad.. do to the drivers window being used the most the switch or motor will go bad sooner then the others

1994 Camry wagon, passenger side electric window.(front seat)

Can you hear the moter or do interior lights dim when pressing button? If so remove door panel and lubricate tracks and rolers using lithium grease lube only the tracks that do not come in contact with glass.

Check the connections at the switch and at the moter with a volt meter if there is power than time for a new moter. no power than check at drivers side switch. If no power there and fuse is ok you have a open in wires and will have to trace entire circut
