Damned Window.

Hey everyone, I have a little question...

My effin passenger's side window will NOT go up. It's stuck down.

What in the world could possibly be wrong w. it? A new switch? Any ideas?

It could be a bad arm inside the door.

Start with the cheapest thing that could possibly have gone wrong. Check the wires first. See if anythings disconnected or bare. Check to see if they have power going to them. If that's not it, then check the switch. If that's not it then check the motor. If that isn't the probaly then it's a mechanical probaly with the window arms probably. If none of these things work, then just get a new door.

That's not necessary. see if there is some code for it. a window component will be cheaper than a new door.

Have you checked the fuse maybe it has blown or something. do that before throwing your door away and getting a new one.

I think that it has something to do w. the switch. Cuz before it blew you had to push REALLY hard to get it to go up or down.

I had the passenger(and drivers side) worked on about four times during warranty and every window component has been replaced at some point or another. After the last time the passenger window was working slower and as of two weeks ago the passenger window does not work at all. I haven't had the time to check wiring, but I am hopping that it is the problem

Hmm..start with the simplest like others have mentioned, maybe you could try prying off the connector and spraying it with electrical contact cleaner.. and check the connector on the window motor(*has the RD/YE & YE/RD wires*)..man after hearing some of these stories the A1 Electric power windows that i just installed sound a little reassuring.. hope you get it all fixed up!
