I know a buddy of mines motor died in his door.

I pulled off the door panel, and pushed up the window from inside the panel.

Open the door up and push it up manually. Some motors will allow this, others wont.

If it is just the switch jerry rig it untill you can get a new one. :) pull the wires off of it and touch them togather to make it go up and then tape the ends so they dont shor tout or w/e and buy a new switch.

Bad Switch? Does it have 2 window switches on the same thing (one for passenger), if get a piece of wire and touch the lil metal contacts that move up and down when you press teh button together. I forget the exact prodcedure but it worked for me.

It's got four (it's the drivers door window)...the three other windows can be controlled by this switch, except on this door, the window can only go down (with ease)....just not up.

Do yours still function normally afterwards? I'm not afraid to do that...whenever you fix something you have that 'pullin' limit where you feel if you pull any harder something'll break; but if it worked for you, I'll try it.

<-- didnt read replies.

take your door panel off, find the + and - window motor wires. touch them to a battery, itll either roll up or down. reverse them for opposite direction.

that is unless your motor is shot

Did the same thing but I sat inside holding the switch up while my dad pulled it up...

Did you get this fixed? There is a way to do it with a battery charger but IDK exactly how to do it. You have to pull the panel off and conect it to something.

all a battery charger does is gove you a 12v source, you could jump power to the battery too. What kind of car is it?

Yeah I got the window up...I wasn't making progress 'cause I was trying to jump the two wires at the switch (and I would see sparks). Once I finally concluded the switch was bad, I just cut the wires and touched them together and the window went up (no sparks). Switch OEMs for about $100, eBays for about $30.
