      check the wires that run inside the rubber boot between the door hinges, i had the same problem after taking the boot off and inspecting the wires 2 had snapped. must of just happened over the years of opening and closing.

      other than that just take off the door skin and get power straight to the motor see if it still works.

        power direct to the window is the first diagnostic test, positive and negative in one config will make it go up, swap the wires and itll go down..

          just thought i'd chime in because although my power windows work they go up and down really slow and even slower without the motor running.

          dodgy regulator?

                Just to bring this up again I am having similar trouble.

                Passenger switch operates the window intermittently. Driver side passenger switch will open it but not close it unless I keep the button held down for about 30 seconds. Drivers window works fine.

                Also my sunroof is being temperamental as well. Sometimes works sometimes it doesn't.

                I pulled everything apart today and went nuts with contact cleaner. Also used a screw driver to try scrape all the terminals a bit even though they all look fine. This hasn't made much difference.

                Any suggestions anyone?

                    When you said you pulled everything apart, did you take the switches apart?
                    no just removed the switch unit from the bezel. I tried to pull them apart but I started cracking the plastic so I gave up.

                      You will find it's probably the switch contacts need cleaning.

                        Ill have to give it another crack. Though both the sunroof and passenger window worked flawlessly today lol. Tomorrow they will both be stuffed again probably.

                          having the same problem... did anyone come up with anything? My passenger window only works if i power the plug directly tried different switches which i know work but still nothing. Does the passenger side window get its power from the drivers side?

                            my window is stuck down, the motor i believe is getting power to it because when i activate the switch up or down i can hear a click from within my door.... rooted motor?
