Passenger side window goes down and not up, another electrical nightmare from Volvo. Cannot determine if the issue is in the master switch cluster or the passenger side switch assembly. Have two Volvos, both are Frankenstein electrical monsters. Drive train will never die, but the lousy cheap plastic pieces and the electrics are right out of hell. -
When the main window switch went out on my driver side I repeatedly would get my Sunroof and Windows stuck open then it would randomly work again. The solution I took as replacing it. I think it cost around $170. But its been almost 2 years ans they work just fine now. -

I was smelling a burning smell coming from somewhere couldn't pinpoint location till windows stopped working. Thinking it was a fuse looked under hood in fuse box and found out where burning smell was coming from.malfunctioning driver side window switch was causing my fuse panel to overheat and was starting to melt.long story short...took out fuse ordered another switch from switch doctor replaced it and problem was gone. -
The master power- window switch unit in the driver's door has the following problems --- it won't raise/lower the rear passenger-side windows. (But the switch in the rear passenger side door still works.) This has not been fixed. The whole unit needs replacement. Please advise me of the reported charges for parts and labor. -
