Power windows may stop working on Mitsubishi Galant

The power windows may fail, often related to moisture inside the door. Affected components will need to be replaced. If possible some type of moisture protection could be added to try and prevent repeat failures.

Still not fixed tried to replace window motor and that was not the problem. Wondering if it's the switch, the driver side switch will not work at all, the passenger side switch will only roll the window down but not up. Any help would be appreciated.

My drivers side window has lagged when operating up or down for the last year so that's normal for me, but I was surprised when my passenger window rolled up by itself. It worked fine after the first incident, then I get into my car and try to roll the windows down the other day and all of them did except for the passenger window. Sometimes it works when I keep pressing the switch, but as soon as it goes down and I try to move it up a little, it rolls all the way up and won't operate anymore. Don't see why there isn't a recall for this seeing as there are so many issues with this.
