dunno what car you have, but if it is a switch problem, try and hook up another working switch from the car?

Or call the RACV??

Re: Problem with power windows. URGENT HELP NEEDED.

Also, is the window catching on anything?
i have seen that happen on an EL, where the window caught on something (door trim or seal) and then would not go back up. It was a chilly drive from cooma during the snow season with the window stuck down!

All the dealer did was to widen the gap slightly and the window went straight up. It never had the problem again.

Thanks for ur advice guys. I fixed it temporarily by pulling out the passenger side switch and put the drivers' side one in there. SO obviously it is the switch thats F***** up.
Thanks anyway.
