    Using the driver side control I try to power up and down my passenger side window, nothing happens. Then using the passenger side control the windo rolls up but not down. Any ideas?

    Others can probably shed more light on this topic than I can (this is one of the reasons I won't run PW in these trucks) but it *may* be the door switches themselves. You can take them apart and clean them easily, unless the pins that the wiring connects to break off, there is nothing to fail in them. (basically)

    If the window moves, but not with both switches, I'd suspect the switches, since its obviously getting power, at least in one direction. IIRC, ground is one wire for each switch (3 wires per window switch) so if it moves, it also shouldn't be a ground problem.
