Drivers window We put the drivers side power window down today and now we can't get it to go back up. The passenger side window still works fine. How can I at least temporarily get the window back up?

I had that problem and found that the real problem was that there was too much friction between the window and the frame. I used WD40 on a cloth to rub the black rubber around the frame and now the window goes up and down without a problem.

I had the same problem with a silhouette 2004 that I bought... my husband just wrenched it up. Then I took it to Krieger's in Muscatine, Iowa (they are / were a dealership for Olds) and their estimate for a new window motor was $995, so I decided not to have them do it and took it to a local body shop, it took about three days for the part and only cost about $200. After finding out that Krieger's was going to charge nearly $1000 for the repair and I had ALREADY spent $3,000 with them to get other things done on it, I decided I didn't need the window... Then I pulled up to the bank and couldn't get out of the door to make a deposit and decided to look to a body shop. Thank goodness I did that because I soon realized that I really needed that thing to go up and down.
Good luck.

Tried it today and none of the windows work from master switch on drivers side except ft passenger window, which went down but will not go back up.


You can't put up the front passenger window with it's own switch ? Did you check the POWER WINDOW RELAY in the instrument panel fuse / relay box ? An you checked POWER fuse 30amp same fuse box ? All window switches have direct power from power window relay !

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

Power window


Sounds like a passenger switch malfunction.

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

Passenger side window will not go back up


No.The drivers master power switch is probably bad.YOu will have to perform a test on the three other switches on the master. Check for power and ground when you push each putton.If the master switch fails the test you need a new master switch.

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.
