How does the window switch work?

When the ignition switch is placed in the run, or accessory position, the window switches on the door are activated, normally through a power relay. Pressing the switch pulls electricity from the battery, through the relay and fuse block, and into the window motor. The is what causes the window to rise and fall on command.

What are the symptoms related to a bad window switch?

When a switch can not make contact and close the circuit, the window cannot be raised and lowered. If the switch on the driver's door will not raise or lower the window in question, but the switch on the corresponding door works just fine, this is a good indication that there is a switch failure. This works the other way around, as well. If the switch on the door does not cause the window to function, but the driver's switch does, that is an indication of a passenger door window switch failure.

Can I drive with a window switch problem?

Driving with a window switch is not likely to damage any other components, unless the window switch is constantly rolling one of the windows up or down. If the switch is constantly engaged, the corresponding window motor may become overworked and fail. Also, some vehicles will not turn off all accessories when the engine is off with the key removed, because the window switch is still being pressed. This can lead to security issues, theft, inability to raise or lower the corresponding window, and a dead battery.

How often do window switches need to be replaced?

Window switches are meant to last the life of the vehicle, based on the amount you are expected by the manufacturer to use it. This is intended, but frequent use, coffee spills, rain water, and dust collection take their tole on window switches. When they fail, which can be at any time, they become unable to transmit signal because of loss of contact. The more harsh their environment, the quicker failure is expected.
