Have a 2007 Commander where the rear passenger window only goes down but not up.
The window switch at the driver side (the 4) 3 of them works, but not the one for the rear passenger window. I have taken the trim of the door on the rear passenger window, and the motor work fine. The window switch on the door work only down, not up...
What can be wrong here? could it be the power window swith at the driver side or?

Is it possible to get the window up by connecting external wires to the motor? Just to get it fixed by a mechanical?

If you can't move the window up by either the drivers door switch or the pass. door switch then it is very possible that you have a broken wire on the loom that goes to the drivers door as I think all of the power goes through there first and then to the other doors/windows but if you can verify power to the switch at the problem door for up I don't see why you could not jump the up side if you have the door panel off. The other thing you could try is with the key on, on the drivers door, hold the up switch for the pass. window and reach down and wiggle or move the flex tube that the wires go through into the drivers door, if it moves at all that is a good spot to look for a short or broken wire.

Thanks for your reply..
Done all that. tested checked, but nothing happens.
The strange thing is that when I tested the 2 cords that goes to the window motor, both gives power when I use the switch on the door.. (each way)
But window motor still only goes down... tested on a new motor, but it only goes down to..

There are 2 cords to the rear passenger window motor. If I use the window switch on the door , there are power in one of them when I pull it up, and power in the other one when I push it down..
Could close the window if i took a battery, and connect one + and one - cord from the battery to the window motor...

Do the switch give both + and - to the window motor?

So my conclusion might be.. the rear window motor works fine, so the switch. But only down..

Since I cant do anything from the panel on the driver door, it might be there the problem is located somewhere.. not the panel/switch, but the cords.. Since there are power on the window switch rear, can it be a cord into the driver door that might can be broken? do someone know if there is any -cord that have connection between the 2 panels/switches?

Anyone, any ideas? Am I on the right track?
