Venture pass window not going up i manually got it up and switch works to get it back down but not going up ruled out bad switch by taking 1 outta my friends rig and tested it that way could it be a broke...

There could be a few causes:

1) A bad window regulator or motor. It is entirely possible for a motor or regulator to fail, but usually they fail completely (meaning the window wouldn't go up OR down).

2) Broken wires or a bad connector. This will have to be traced out manually.

3) A defective driver's master window switch. Your driver's window master switch is part of the circuit for your passenger window motor/switch. If you have a friend with the same exact vehicle, I would suggest trying to swap the driver's master window switch, and see if that helps.

Otherwise, you'll have to check for proper power/ground at the passenger window motor, the two wires should switch polarity depending upon which way you press the window switch. Just make sure that when the switch is pressed "up", one wire has 'power', the other is grounded. Then press "down" on the switch- the one with 'power' will now be grounded, the one that was grounded will now have 'power'. If this is all OK, you're going to have to trace it back through the system until you find the issue.

I have a ford windstar 2003, the power windows some times work. When a try open the driver's window there is a rely sound baut nothing happen. If i try to open the passanger or rear windows only...

I'd take the inner door panel off, and disconnect the two heavy wires that feed the window motor. Put a digital multi-meter positive lead on one wire, and the negative on the other wire, and press the button to put the window down (you'll have to have the main switch control plugged in to test this). You should see your meter read +12v or so when you push the button one way, and -12V when you push the button the other way. If you are getting power (consistently) then your motor may be bad, or the window regulator needs greased.

Passanger window doesn't go up or down. Is there something I could check, or are both windows powered by the same fuse? Drivers side works.

The same fuse powers all the windows. You either have a bad switch, power window motor or a broken wire. You could try jumping the switch out. If that works you know the switch is bad. If it doesn't then the door panel would have to be removed and power checked at the connector. If you have power but no window operation then the window motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If you have no power at the window motor with the switch jumped then you have a broken wire, most likely in the door jam.

My wiper motor started working intermittently. Then it quit all together. I had a new switch put in and it still did not work. I then had a wiper motor put in and it worked for 2 weeks. It quit working...

It's probably a bad ground, clean the plug or drill a screw into the frame and connect it with a wire and another screw into the actual wiper box where it won't interfere with the motor.

Rear passanger window motor works but window will not go up!

Does the switch move the window in either direction? If not you have to test for voltage going through the switch to the motor.
OR you can test you motor direct by putting power and ground to the motoe to see if it responds.If the motor is bad you have to remove the whole thing,then put the regulator andmotor ina vice drill out the ribbits and remove the motor and install with the small nuts and bolts supplied with a new motor.
