Ok we all know this system is run by a 12v electrical motor powered by your battery. First you have to establish if this is mechanical or electrical. With your ignition key on but the car not started hit your window switch and listen for the motor to run. If you can hear this then your problem is mechanical and will require you to remove the door panel and physically inspect the system after you have removed the weather stripping which I highly recommend you replace when done. Many times the mechanical issue is caused by weather and can be fixed with some lubricating spray and manually moving your window around until it becomes free. If the problem is electrical first check your fuses to make sure they are still working and if so take a 12guage or 14guage wire and hook it directly to the positive terminal of the battery. Take the other end and hook it to the power side of the motor for your window. If it comes alive then you have to replace the switch. If not then you have to replace the motor. Make sure to test the new motor in the same way before you put the weather stripping back on to ensure you don't need a new switch as well. Hope this helps. I have to do this to my 98 Aurora today.

Why will my passenger power window in my 2004 dodge neon not go down?

I'm currently having the same issue and from what I've gathered over the past week online, it's one of two things. Either the window switch/connection is faulty OR the regulator. Mine happens to be the switch because the driver side switch for the passenger window works fine. Now my problem is if the passenger and driver switch mechanisms are interchangeable when purchasing?

Why would your driver's side window suddenly go down all on it's own on a 1993 Explorer Sport while the switch operates the passenger's side window just fine?

The question is: Is this the drivers window switch but it opens the passenger side's window? Who was driving or in the driver's seat. You may have spilled enough beer on the arm rest that leaked into the switch and created a corrosive electrical connection for the window motor/

First, check to see if you hear anything when you try the window switch, if nothing and the other window works probably the window switch. Could also be the motor but try the switch first, it's a lot cheaper.
