    Hello, My passenger window quit working in the full up position. I ordered a new regulator, plugged it in before I took the old one out and the new one does not work either. Any ideas? Thanks, Alex 2001 Suburban

    i would check the tracks for any binds. then check all the wiring and make sure nothing has been exposed from either getting cut of from chaffing

    X2, also fuses might be a cause??

    I have checked all of the wiring that I can find for chaffes and I have jiggled them while activating the switch. Seems to be okay. Is there a fuse for the passenger window only? Could it be the switch that you press to put the window down? Neither switch will activate the window, driver side or passenger side. Thanks for any help. I am going to send the regulator back??!!

    I was actually asking about the fuse problem, thinking it might kick in an idea from someone else.. If you have a way to check to see if power is going to that window motor?? that would be your best bet. Since there is a chance that you might have a fried motor??
    Just trying to help. good luck.

    I have a switch on order for the passenger side. We will see if that works. Correct me if I ma wrong, but if I hooked the new regulator up and it did not work, then it is probably not the regulator that is bad. I am waiting to send it back till I find out for sure if it is the switch.

    Did you take the panel off yet?

    My passenger rear quit on me. Once I got the panel off I found it just came unplugged from the door switch.

    Just make for darn sure you don't have the child lock out switch on. Probably not the switch if you cant roll it down with the driver or passenger controls.

    Get a mulit meter(volt meter), $30 at an auto parts store, costs a bit but it is a very effective tool and can save you thousands down the road, trace back wiring to another connector, test your continuity, see if there is a break in the wire or shorted connector. Then check continuity on the switch in the powered positions. No continuity, no connection. Are there any relays that power each window individually?

    Just to add to the frustration...I have an intermittent issue with my passenger side window as well. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Any and all help appreciated. No fuses bad. I'm sure it's a connection thing either in the master switch in driver door or the relay, or the switch in the passenger door.

    i finally got the regulator replaced after I ordered a switch as well. It was the regulator. Thanks for all of the suggestions!!
