Power Windows May Stop Working on Dodge Grand Caravan

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or regulator. In some cases these items are replaced as a set. If not, diagnoses will be required to determine which is at fault.

Drivers side power window is intermittent. Sometimes have to wait a few minutes before the window will go back up.
The front passenger window just stopped working. Makes no noise just dead.
Passenger side window doesn't work.
driver's side windo will not roll down (a royal pain during hot days or going through drive through windows, either banking or fast food).
window rolls down and sticks.. will not roll back up.
Drivers side window just stopped working without any prior problems.
Passenger side window won't roll down with passenger side control. Driver side control will still roll window down.
We've had to replace the drivers side power window motor 3 times since we've owned our 2005 Grand Caravan! Its not a cheap fix, paid around $500 each time. We've owned it for 7.5 years.
driver side front passenger motor went out
Driver side window fails in low temps. Need to blow hot air on door panel for window to go up.
passenger window in the front does not go down haven't been able to find the problem until i read this
Driver's side power window would not go back up. Took in for checking and learned window motor needed to be replaced. Seems like this is a very common problem and one maybe Dodge should have done a recall on. Very frustrating!!!
driver side window went down and doesn't come up.
After opening driver side window , upon closing the same window, it may stop closing. If you wait for several minutes or even more, then it may close a little bit more. It eventually will close, bit by bit, after lots of attempts to close.
Goes down takes forever to go back up. I hate this van.
Down but won't come up from either switch makes no noise. Passenger switch clicks for up but not for down. disconnected passenger switch still will not work from drivers side
Driver side window intermittently will not open or close...mostly a problem with opening. I wait a minute and try again and (so far) it works as desired. It is annoying, but hasn't failed completely to date.
The window switch needs to be primed about 6 times before it will go up other times it goes up without a problem
Power window sometimes doesn't roll up all the way, have to wait, then try again, works intermittently.
Window motor died. Replacement also failed within 6 months.
