I have a 2004 Chevy venture passenger window won't go up or down what could it be

Have you tried the drivers door "passenger door window switch" and the passenger "door window switch" to try and roll the passenger window up?When you do try to roll it up make sure the vehicle is running as you want the most voltage to the window motor.If both door switches would not roll the window up,try the following.
With the engine running hit the up window switch on the passenger door just as you give the door a HARD FIRM RAP.The window should roll up.It may take a few tries.DO NOT roll the window back down until you have changed or dissembled the window motor for a good cleaning.Also,check for broken wires at the door hinge area on both the drivers and passenger sides,pull each wire firmly looking for a broken wire.

My rear windows on my 2004 DHS do not come down

I have had to replace all of my window regulators in my '04 Deville. Can get them online for 40-60 bucks each, without the motor. It verify it is the regulator and not the motor, simply try to push the window down (without power). If it goes down (careful not to lower it completely), then push back up, and get online and order one. They are position specific, i.e. left drivers or right rear. The door panels are very simple to remove, but can be challenging to install. Check out youtube. There are some good video showing just how to get to it. It takes me about 20 minutes to do one.

Now if the problem is not the regulator, you can still easily remove the panel to gain access to the switches and their plugs. Use a volt meter to check for voltage. Also, as you stated "windows" will not go down, is this with just the drivers controls or each individual rear switch as well?

The most common problem on the '04 Deville is the regulators. Typical cheap junk design from GM, has a plastic connector to attach the regulating cables to. They simply break. Had they spent an additional nickel and used metal, thee would not be a problem. Good luck!

Drivers window goes down but won't go up electric windows

you have a bad window motor it doesnt have the power to push the window back up the reason it will go down is becasue the weight of the window helps push itself down but the motor is to weak to push the window back up replace the window motor and you will be all set

Have a 97 chevy venture. The driver side window rolls down but won't roll back up.

I guess you mean goes down when you press the electric button down and theres no sound orpower to go back up if you pust the button for down again it'll try to go down, but not up. If this is the case the window switch has failed, as long it's the window in the drivers door.

Passenger power window powers down not up

If you can do it, run a jumper from the drivers door to the passenger door. Unplug both motors. try to run the passengers door off the drivers switch to rule out the motor. I don't think it is because the motor is dc. But this is the common point. Please mark this as helpful or fixya. Shuold you have anymore problems, I used to be a mobile mechanic electircian. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Chevy Venture power windows- 2003

It is possible that it is the fuse but if so something caused the fuse to blow. It may be in the wiring which if you pull up the carpet by removing the door floor trim and lifting the carpet you will see the wiring underneath. Probably laying in water. Look for splices in the wiring which will have corroded. Repair the wiring then replace the fuse.
Another problem may be in the motors found inside the doors. The brushes may have worn out. If so you need to replace the motors. Unlikely that both motors failed at the same time though.
Usually the drivers door first since it is the most used.
