It sounds alot like you may have the wiring plug in backwards. Here is the line of thought. Your switch is a 2 way switch with 2 options up and down. One switch position is on for up and one position is on for down. So what this means is if the wiring is backwards, you are giving the down wires the ON signal when the up switch is pushed and you are giving the up wires ON when down side of the switch is pushed.

I know it is a pain to pull the door apart and test, but the switch does not really know what way is up and down, this is handled by pulsing power to certain wires via the switch. I would advise taking the door apart and checking the positioning of the connector plug into the switch, making sure it is correctly in place.

Please post back if you need anything further or there are any new developments,

Brian

Drivers door window does not roll up


you will more than likely have to change out the window regulator . these are gable drive and bind up in the motor area .
to test remove door panel and use a battery charger . There is 2 wires that goto the window motor . touch negative to one side and positive to other side . It will either go up or down . reverse the cables it will go the opposite way.

If it goes up and down fine then its your window Switch.
If it doesn't its your Regulator

How to replace drivers side window on a1999 chevy tahoe


1 Open the door, place the blade of the screwdriver behind the lock switch on the door panel and pop it out of the door panel. Repeat this process for the trim panel around the power window switches and the interior door handle, pulling both of those pieces off of the door.
2
Unbolt the door panel from the door using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. There are bolts behind the door lock and in the corners of the panel. If this is a front-door panel, pull off the triangular panel that covers the mirror bolts using your hands. Then lift the door panel up towards the top of the door, and then pull it off the door.
3
Plug in the window switches again to the harness on the door. Roll the window down halfway until you can see the bolts that clamp the window in place through the access holes. There are two 10mm bolts that clamp the window to the window track, and there are access holes that allow you to unbolt those clamps using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Unbolt the clamps at this point
.4
Pull up the rear of the window--the section toward the back of the Tahoe--and tilt the window up so that it is oriented perpendicular to its normal position. Pull the window out of the door panel, tilting it in towards the interior of the vehicle.
5
Slide the replacement window in place in the same manner you pulled out the stock window. Tilt the window back into the clamps, then loosely tighten the clamps in place. Roll the window up and down a few times to make sure it fits correctly, then tighten down the clamps on the window using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.
6
Reassemble the door panel in the reverse order of dis assembly.

02 explorer how to get drivers side window back up switch is broken


Remove the master switch from the driver front door. Unplug the master switch. Find the white/black wire and the tan/light blue wire (they should be right next to each other and pins 7 and 8 in the connector. Use a jumper wire to supply power to one of those wires and ground to the other. If the window goes down reverse the polarity of the jumper wires (switch the power and ground to the wires).

Window's will not go up or down. I've checked the fues and the relay. how can I find another door switch


Hello,
Have you pulled another door switch from another window from your truck to see if it is the switch? If it is not the master panel (front driver side panel) that has gone bad then try to use the master panel to function the window in question. You want to make sure it is the switch before just replacing it because there is a regulator/motor that powers the window up and down that can just go bad out of nowhere too. You pull the door panel to replace the regulator/motor should this be the case. However if you are dead set on getting the switch you may want to try a salvage yard to save some money. If you want a new one then you may have to go to the dealership to get this item. They are easy enough to replace. There are two screws on top of the switch that you need to remove. The you take a flathead screw driver and gently pry the switch panel up. Then there is a connector that pops off and you reverse to replace.

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry and the power window on the passenger side has gone down, under power. Then nothing would happen when I would pulled up on the switch on the driver side main switch and the also...


more than likely one of the switches are bad (down side of switch works but up side of switch dont) being as the switches are wired together if one goes bad other one won't work either take the switch out one of back doors should be same as front passenger door put rear switch in front passenger door if works then u know front door switch is bad if it doesn't then drivers door switch is bad
u replaced window regulator Did that come with motor too??? if not check to see if motor is good
there is two wires going to motor cut isolation back on wires and using some jumper wires attach one wire to positive terminal of a 12 volt battery attach other wire to negative terminal of battery window should move up or down reverse connections and window should move other way

2000 Saturn SL2 driver's side electric window. Motor works - but window does not go up and down, or goes part way, or goes crooked. What is the fix and steps to accomplish it "? . Also best method to...


Fore remove the door panel in a SL2, you have to take off the door handle. You have to disengage the door locking mechanism from the door handle, then unscrew the panel and take it off.

The door handle unhinges from the locks and from the window controls. If your windows are electric, just unsnap the cord attached and leave it hanging out.

You may have to work with the door handle as it won't come out of the slot very easily and you don't have a lot of room. A flat bladed screwdriver with a long metal piece should work to unsnap it.

Power window motor replacement. window in down position


Normal 0 Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locateand remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they maybe hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, thendisconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snapin clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as closeto, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the doorpanel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from thedoor. Once you gain access to the interior of the door, you can remove your window regulator and re-position it, or replace it so it works.
Install in reverse.
