The driver's window suddenly stopped working. The switch justs makes a click sound when I try to put the window down. All of the other PWs work fine. This just happened after my wife ran over a dead deer. Not sure if that event is related to the window problem.
How do I test and replace the driver's side power window switch on my 2004 carav on 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

u may have a window motor issue. ck pwr to window motor 1st b4 replacing anything. the switches normally snap into door panel,pry up easy with a plastic wedge as to not scratch anything
Thanks. I pulled the switch panel out and disconnected the wires and put back in, then When I slammed the door shut, the window went down and wouldn't go back up. So, I held the button up and continued to slam the door and the window eventually went up in stages..I guess the window motor bushings are bad? Is there a way to test the motor or just replace the bushings?

Did your wife drift left over the deer? I doubt it. Take the panel off and find out if there is power going to the power window motor when you switch it...if there is no power = bad switch...if there is power = bad motor.
