Rear drivers side window stopped working, replaced the motor, still not working. Got a new master switch, now the front switch won't work at all for that window, and the switch on that door will only put the window down, not up.

all windows stopped working. replaced fuse/circuit once and this fixed the issue. About 3 months later stopped working. When trying the driver side front, can hear motor working
First, a few years ago, my driver side window stopped working. Got it repaired. Believe it was the motor. I have a lot of "sticky spittle" from my trees. Anyway, the rest of the Windows also quit. It was quite expensive to get them fixed. So lately i have alot of that spittle again I try to keep it washed off...now my driver window has acted up again. This time it wasn't a dragging sensation. It was just intermittent stop while goin up. Down was no problem. I tried to just leave it up but my reaction is to open it first thing when I get in. We've had triple digital weather lately. So i quit pushing the button about 1 inch down. Then it stopped going up at all. Funny that my AC/heat vent directional adjust quit also. Started with the passenger temp heat/cool adjust sticking o cold. Now the air only comes out the top vents.
driver side window rolls down but when trying to roll it back up it will only go a short distance and then stop i either have to pull up on window while i opperate switch or wait for about 5 mins then try again for it to only roll up another short distance
Rear driver window will not raise. Already replaced the motor and regulator once about 4 years ago at about 105K
First it was my driver window regulator now my passanger window quit.
My brother slammed the passenger door shut one day and the window would not go down. After a few days looking up solutions I went outside and slammed the door shut again and the window now works perfectly. John Nowell
right rear window wont roll down anymore-didn't fix the problem
Driver-side window motor failed. Had it replaced.
My power window went out and it was 400 dollars to get fixed. I was not expecting it to be that much. My wires were bad but I had to buy a new motor, since the wires are connected to the motor.
The same ones keep going bad all the time. We have replaced the motors and still the same. We have two windows that don't work right now and it's frustrating. We had someone tell us it was the actuators that are bad. Never heard of them before but if it helps someone that's great.
havent had fixed yet. all 4 do not work. tried new switches didnt fix it, motors are good, thinking it is bad wiring...
Driver window off track had it fixed once months later back off track so I just keep it up.
