u have a defective electric window motor so no override will work, u must take the door apart and replace the defective electric windowe lift motor.

I have a 99 Kia Sportage that had the exact same problem. You can fix the switches without having to spend ANY money to replace them! You first have to remove the door panel. Disconnect the wires going to the switch and then remove the switch from the panel. Remove all the screws from the botoom of the switch, including the ones holding the metal clips. Then carefully pry each side upwards from the locking tabs and pull the switch apart. BE CAREFUL not to lose the little metal rockers inside the switch! Now all you have to do is clean all the contacts and rockers with a brass wire brush, or fine sanpaper, (or even a good ink eraser will work). Then put the switch back together, reinstall it, and test it out! You'll be back in business and didn't spend a dime! I did this with my 98 Ford Windstar, too.

my car just did the same thing... my brother in law used a pair of pliers to open it then the wire just needed tightened. only took him a couple mins.

Thru much testing we have found this problem to be relative to the lock out at the master switch. Have not figured it exactly but when the master switch for the rear passenger window is held in the up position the rear works just fine up and down. The only wire diff on that side is the lock out. Still testing, may be that wire shorted to the body or the master switch may just be bad or wired incorrectly.
