How can you get a faulty power window up on a 1994 Chevy Corsica if the window is no longer working and you can not pull it up by hand?

Depends on if it's the regulator (window mechanics) or if it's electrical (window motor, wiring etc.).

If you KNOW the regulator is okay (that means the window would move up and down if the electrical components have power) then it's really simple.

Remove the door panel, and any backing marterial. Unhook the regulator cable from the power window motor (could be as simple as just pulling it out) and jam that end into a 3/8ths cordless drill. Set the drill on forward and let'r fly. The drill can take the place of an inoperative power window motor.

If it's the regulator and you're asking this question, best to seek help of a bodyshop.

Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to add a new answer. I had the same problem with the window on my Corsica. Try slamming the door really hard, and then try to roll up the window. You may have to do this a few times to get it to work. If you get it rolled up, my suggestion is to not roll it down all the way next time. If you try to pull up on the window, don't do it too hard. You could break the glass is you put too much pressure on it. I eventually went to a salvage yard and found a Corsica of the same color as mine a replaced the door. Good luck.

cANNOT GET THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW UP, IT IS PARTWAY DOWN AND HAVE TRIED SPRAYING CLEANER IN IT, NO GO. WHAT DO I DO? The switch, or relay, for that window is faulty, or worn out (since drivers window is most used). Replace it.

Remove the inside door panel of your 1994 Chevrolet Corsica. Remove the window motor wiring harness. Remove the window motor linkage. Remove the window motor retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new window motor.

Bad fuse, bad relay, faulty switch, faulty wiring, bad window motor, window coming off the track... this is something which requires diagnosis in order the narrow down the cause.

Probably the switch or faulty wiring.
