Button are loose on for the driver side window creating difficultly for putting the window back up when it is down. Front passenger window malfunctions and won't automatically go up when the button is pressed.
Driver's side window stopped working and was fixed by replacing the window regulator. It did NOT require replacing the power window motor.

Window switches stop working every once in a while but come back. I suspect moisture because switches often fail in humid conditions.
