    I have exactly the same problem. The window will go up but not down. If I disconnect the battery, and reconnect, it will go down - but if you stop, it won't go down any more. But, it will always go up. It seems like it has to go all the way to the top before it will even think about going down again. I think my problem is the GEM (generic electronic module), or a sticky regulator - pulling more current than expected. It seems as though the GEM can sense the amount of current, and does some type of lockout function.

SOURCE: 92 F150 power window and locks

try taking apart and cleanig all contacts first. make sure you are getting power to switch. Sounds more switches are going bad. They usually last about 5 to 7 years before they start going out.

SOURCE: power window on XC90 wont stay up on 'auto-up'??

Put the window down all the way and then hold the switch up, hold it until the window closes all the way up, and continue to hold it for about 10 sec. after the window is closed. Try this a few times, but if this does not work you will will probably have to take it to the dealer. They will have to do this for you with the Volvo computer scanner, this is covered under warranty if you are still with in by millage if not they will charge around 50 dollars.

SOURCE: only front passenger power window won't work.

Yes it could. Some cars have a fuse for each window. Check your fuse boxes ( diagrams of what fuse powers which circut should be on the back of the fuse box cover) to see if that is the case. Replace fuse if appropriate.

Rear passenger window goes down with the switch but won,t go up, also from the driver main panel the window won,t go down but will work on the up button


Sounds like you have issue with the push button controls for the window. I really don't think I had to say it. If you remove the door panels and check it out you may find, rust broke wires, bad connection some simple problems which need a better visual look. If a window goes down but not up. It should not be a fuse, relay or power issue unless the connection is a problem.

2009 impala driver side power seat won't move up/down, makes whirring sound when attempted. Moves forward backward. Passenger seat works properly.


Before you do any of the expensive things disconnect and reconnect the wiring to the seat I had the same exact problem with my 2009 Chevy Impala and was ready to take it to the dealer when I disconnected the power cables to it and reconnected them I found that one of the Harnesses was loose and the problem was solved

Your window won't work for one of 3 reasons, 1. fuse is blown 2. Window switch is bad 3. Window motor is bad. To get the window up, Take off door panel remove window mechanism(metal piece with teeth on it) from motor and then you can push window up(window will not stay up unless you duct tape it or reconnect to motor.

Take off the door panel and disconnect the two wire plug one is brown the other is orange. Take two jumper wires and run them to a battery. If it goes down then switch the wires on the battery and it will go up. If it does not move then the window motor is shot and will need to be replaced.
