It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.

SOURCE: drivers side window switch not working on 2005

the drivers door switch is most likely bad, they get used the most and wear out first, the connector on the back of switch may have come loose and not making good electrical contact, remove switch and check connector and if still not working need new switch, the windows are all on same circuit and either all work or none work so not fuse. extremely rare is a short in wired but not likely.

SOURCE: How to repair Power Window Switch on front

The reason that they go down but not up is because they are usually binding in the track inside the door. You can remove the door panel and grease it with silicone grease to fix the problem. Usually its not the switch, but if you press it too much the switch will get burned out because it overheats inside from the current. If you remove the door panels, you should be able to switch the left and right switches to trouble shoot the switches. If you switch them and the right one goes down now, then you know the old right switch is bad.

SOURCE: driver side power window switch not working with

From the inside of the car pull out the handle that opens the door and remove the screw/s. The take off the entire door panel by taking a flat blade screwdriver and prying up along the perimeter of the panel. Usually 5 or 6 plastic snap in screws hold the panel in place. Unplug the switch panel.

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the window motor. Google window motor and vehicle type to find less expensive aftermarket motors.

Windows work some times other times when they dont sometimes opening the passenger side door and shuting then they work other times it dosent work and when they dont on the drivers side the light in side...


It seems your switch or the electrical connection to it is going bad. You should open up the door panel and use a multimeter to test the switch. You can by a replacement at the auto parts store ( autozone or oreilly) if it has gone bad but sometimes they are expensive. You could also check the wiring to the switch. It travels from under the dash, through the door. My guess is that if it's loose, it's where the door hinges. Look for frayed wires.

Open the drivers side door and see if you can peel back the covering on the wires going into the door. Sometimes from opening and closing the door so much 1 or more of the wires break or rub bear and contact each other or something else. Check if all the wires are good.

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it


The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

Front windows only work sometimes


I had a problem like this on both driver side windows. They started off going up slower and slower until eventually they wouldn't go up at all. When pressing the switch, I could still hear the motor, but the window wouldn't work. The solution was to replace the regulators.

I have a 2001 rodeo. the power windows all work from each window if you hit that particular switch at the window, they work. the drivers side window also rolls down. but the 3 other switches at the drivers...


First check your fuse panel. Other than that...Perhaps moisture has gotten in the door panel and messed with the connection. I would take the panel off and investigate..make sure everything is plugged in.

Drivers side window power went out


I had this exact problem with my Park Avenue and it was the switch in the drivers door. I bought a switch at a junkyard for $5.00.
