Drivers side window switches wont activate front drivers door or passenger door also wont activate power mirrors. But does still activate rear windows.
Driver side window went down and I tried to put the window back up and I get nothing
Passenger side window switch does not activate window motor. However, one can activate the window motor from the driver side switch.
The passager window was working on and off then started working fine and then the driver window stopped working and has not worked at all.
Driver side window won't go or down
Passenger side window switch does not activate window motor. However, one can activate the window motor from the driver side to fix
left rear power window stuck down
My drivers side power window lowers with the switch when automatically pressed but if I allow it to completely lower to an open position I will not be able to raise the window again until I remove the switch from the door panel switch module on the drivers door skin. I then can remove and replace the wired module from the back side of that switch where the harness is attached and it seems to make a connection sometimes and the window will raise through trial and error and a lot of clicking. The window switch kind of physically snaps like it is obstucted when attempting to activate it also. Based on this I have a bad motor or a bad switch. However, it IS still a problem! Thank you

Bought new 4/05. Two years ago drivers door window started having problems going back up when the weather gets cold. Have to wait a few minutes, try the switch, watch window move a little, repeat until the window is all the way up.
And how about the cheap coolant entension pipe from the lower radiator hose to the water pump. I've replaced that because the original rusted out. "Cheap" comes to mind on this set up.
The oil pan is rusting out and will need to be replaced within a year (I predict).
Had to replace the catalytic converter. Luckily it was still covered by the emissions warranty. Took them over a week to find one (seems to have been a cronic problem).
Window slowly went down and never went back up. Just happened.
driver's side door switch won't go up or down, power outside mirror, too. rear window switch works fine.
Driver side window went down, and stopped working.
Driver side window switch will only open the back passanger side window got new switch still the same can't lock or unlock form drivers door
Drivers side power window... First it was intermittent, then nothing. Motor worn out, weak I think . Because I took the door panel off and disassembled the motor, cleaned it and greased it but it's the brushes... poor contact and thus no movement. Need a new motor ! Damm.
Drivesr door, front two windows, the mirror adjust, the door locks don't work but, the rear windows work
Just purchased vehicle from dealer everything was fine and then next day drivers side window does not go down. I did notice a slight smell of burning wiring before it went out.
Driver side power door inoperable and the window will not roll down as well
Driver side window won't go down.
Mechanical failure of drivers side window about a month or two ago. Today the passenger window has failed. Really sick of dodge
Drivers window stopped working at 140,000 and the passenger side window stopped working at 160,000. I is very frustrating that they just all of a sudden stop working and is ridicously expensive to get fixed. Between the 2 it is close to being over half of what the van is worth!
