The switch that you push activates a relay and that relay may be bad.
The problem is to locate the relay! Look of a 1.5 inch square aluminum
box near the fuses. There may be several, all with the same number,
interchange them and you may get the window up.
Thanks guys. The window miraculously went up after another hour of playing.
Previously, I tried swapping all the switches and trying all of them...
nothing. Opening and shutting the door to jar the cables was the last thing
I tried. The motor has always had a much louder sound than the other
windows, so it might just be going out.
Question: does that relay control ONLY the left rear window? All of my
other windows work fine. Is it 1 relay per window?
The relay controls two windows... not one... in cross direction.
I suspect it is only the switches that needs to be disassembled to clean up
all the contacts inside it. Very common problem for oxidation to build up so
that you have problem closing a window.
It is not that hard of a job to disassemble and clean it up.
