Question about 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD
The driver side power window is not going up or down. When the switch is activated it does not cause the interior lights to dim (i.e. does not appear to be drawing power). I do here a clicking type noise that sounds like it is coming from the switch. I do not here anything coming from the motor and did not here any strange noises before it stopped working. My questions are: 1) does this sound like a switch issue to you? 2)how do I test to see if the switch is the problem if it is likely 3) Do I need to remove the entire door panel to replace the switch?
Thanks for all your Help. Mike
It sounds like a motor problem and the motor is the most likely, usualy it is just stuck, if you can open the doorpanel and tap on the motor while driving the switch should solve the problem. and the switch should be able to pry out without demoumting the panel.

Passenger Door Module (PDM)
Body Control Module (BCM)
RR power window switch
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
Window lockout switch
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left windows)
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right windows)
The DDM contains four power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the two front windows have three positions UP, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only two positions, UP and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a Class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has two positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The two rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a Class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.
