Rear power windows not rolling up?

Postby Zen_master » Sun Jun 30, 2019 9:31 am

Just encountered an issue the other day. Rear windows on both passenger and driver side occasionally do not go up using driver seat control button. If you fidget with it they will eventually roll up. Here's the kicker, it does this only on occasion. Most of the time it works fine. But when they short out it's scary because I never know if this is the one time they'll be stuck down for good. Anyone familiar with this issue of intermittent inability to roll up the rear windows? Thanks

It sounds like poor or dirty contacts inside the driver's main switch. The usual fix would be to replace the switch, but some have had success in taking the switch apart and cleaning the contacts.

Thanks. Will look into this. Problem seems to pop up more or persist longer when the ambient temperature is on the high end (90+).

Are the dirty connections inside the switch i.e. between the black and white plastic, or on the bottom of the switch where it presumably plugs in?

Inside the switch. It's the actual switch contacts that I'm talking about.
