Driver's power window stuck in up position. We have removed door panel to check wiring, motor etc. Is there any way to tell if it is the switch or the motor? The wiring seems ok.

    This is a common failure and requires the replacement of the Power Window regulator assembly which takes about an hour to perform.

    I just purchased a 2003 Chrysler T&C and the passenger side window was not functioning and the drivers side was intermittent. I ordered a new LH window regulator assembly. When I was about to install it I decided to take a look inside the motor of the existing window regulator. When I opened it up I saw an accumulation of motor brush dust. Especially between the brush contacts on the rotor. I turned the rotor to "unscrew" it from the assembly and thoroughly cleaned it. I added a little oil and lube and reassembled it and now the window works fine. I did the same thing to the drivers side regulator motor and now it too works just like it should. I still have a regulator assembly that I'm not sure what to do with. It is much easier to get to the two motor casing screws if you remove the three regulator mounting bolts/rivets or other type of fastener, that aren't usually very easy to take out. This is easier than replacing the whole regulator unit, not to mention considerably less expensive. If more detailed information is desired, let me know.
