The problem is that it seems as if the window has become ajar and will no longer go up, going down it still works, just need a manual to see if the regulator or motor has gonr bad, or maybe have to replace the motor, but what they want to charger is over $600.00 at the dealership...

All the other windows work ? Not a fuse , one fuse powers all the windows . Test for B+ voltage at the switch an the window regulator would be the proper diagnostic procedure . Do you own a volt meter ? know how to read a wiring diagram ? how to do basic automotive electrical testing . The Faint click you hear is probably a relay , which means the GEM - genaric electronic modual is energizing the window relay . The windows are computer controlled .
The GEM will activate the OTD Relay until one of the following conditions is met:
The LF regulator control switch is pushed to the UP position.
The LF regulator control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the down position (first detent) or one touch down (OTD) position (second detent).
Seven seconds have elapsed since the OTD was initiated.
A window regulator electric drive stall condition is detected on the one touch down sense line inputs.
The UP window operation is not controlled by the GEM. The feature is activated when the delayed accessory is active and the LF window regulator control switch is pressed to the UP position. The switch provides delayed accessory power to one side of the motor and ground to the other side through the one touch down relay. The one touch down relay is not active when the LF regulator control switch is in the UP position.
Passenger windows may be raised or lowered using the LF master control switches or the appropriate passenger window switch. Passenger window switches receive power when the delayed accessory relay is active and the LF remote lock-out switch is in the UNLOCK position. When in the LOCK-OUT position, the passenger windows are deactivated.
The GEM controls manual down and auto down window movement with the down window relay. The relay is activated by applying ground directly to one side of the down window relay coil, and deactivated by removing the ground signal.
The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the power moon roof. The delayed accessory feature is active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the LF and RF doors are closed.
The GEM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:
the LF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
the RF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
10 minutes have elapsed since the ignition switch was changed from ACC or RUN to the OFF/LOCK position.
LF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
RF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both the RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on the RUN/ACC input).
Ignition switch OFF/LOCK position (absence of battery potential on the RUN, RUN/ACC, and START inputs).
I located the switch and cleaned up underneath it as well as a shot of WD40. 1st open the door. 2nd manually close the latch with a screw driver. Look for the white tab in the top of the latch. You can only see it when the door is open and the latch is closed. To test, start the vehicle and if the switch is not working correctly the door ajar will go on. Use a small screw driver and push the white tab up and let it fall back down. It should move very easily and doesn't need to go up much. The tab is the bottom of the switch. I used a tooth pick to get up under the switch and clean anything that was possibly stopping the switch from coming down all the way. Once I clean it I used the WD40 with a nozzle to lubricate it blow any remaining junk out from under the latch. This seems to have corrected the problem.
Check door switch connection and operation. If the door switch is part of the door lock mechanism, within the door itself, then remove door panel, disconnect the mechanism's electrical connector and re-check that the interior light no longer comes on with that door ajar. If it doesn't, then you likely have a faulty door lock mechanism, which you will have to replace. This faulty switch will also have the affect on your random central locking function.
This is not likely connected to the engine performance issue.
On most vehicles now days the dome light and door ajar is controled by a switch on the latch itself instead of a button inside the door jamb.
But given your windows don't go down as well you should check the connection and harness for the drivers door (drivers door has the master windw switch and it is needed for the other windows to work regardless).
Some later dashes have a plastic panel on the side (where the door panel would meet up to it) and you can remove that panel. They are usually held on with some metal clips that should just pull out, if no screws are seen.
If there are no panels on the side then maybe the one near your knees comes off.
Anyway, there should be the connections for the electrical inside the door.
Could also very well be a break in that harness going into the door.
closing the door is putting pressure on the door glides,, check to see if the door jam is pushing on a misaligned door window frame,, if it is,, you need to realign the doors upper part that houses the window,, this is often caused by someone simply leaning or hanging on the window frame while talking to someone,,
If you checked the fuses and they are fine, try this. With the key on and the window button down or up, open and close the door holding in the up or down position. If the window moves, there is a wire(s) are broken in the wire harness that goes from the door jam to the door. This is a common problem that we find with window and door operating problems. You may find 1 bad or broken wire, or 4-5 broken wires. Let us know if this help you find a repair, for this concern. Craig
