I have same problem with the passanger window in the up position. I can press the buttom but nothing happens. I will press the down bottom as I use the back of my fist to tap the door handle and the window comes down.

I am having window problem with my car. It seems to me that my window works randomly. Yesterday My drive side window works but not my passanger side window. All my four window seems to work randomly. Works sometimes and does'nt work sometimes. I even change the window switch spending over $100. I guess that didn't solve the problem.
I don't know which window will work today.

Please Help Me

The window motor and travel arm apply a considerable pressure to the windows when they are closed. The window travel arm can sometimes cause the windows to get stuck in the closed position. Do you find this condition only when the windows are up ? If so, try this. While pressing the down switch of the offending window, hit the inside of the door panel just in front of the arm rest with your palm. This will probably free up the travel arm and allow the window to go down.
