I think my switch is bad. The passenger window is stuck down. Can I jumper that switch? I'm waiting on the new one to get here.

And the motor has been fine, all the sudden completely dead from both sides. The driver's side works.

You can always run twelve volts directly to the motor (a wire from each battery terminal of a 12 volt battery is easiest) if it doesn't go up the first time, then reverse the wires.

Just hit it with a pry bar and a hammer. Did it yesterday and worked like a charm

If the motor is dead with the window down remove the door panel, unbolt the motor from the door freeing up the window regulator gear. Pull up the window by hand and reinstall the motor. That will hold the glass up until you swap motors.

Good Luck

My passenger side acts up every now and then i was at a show last weekend i finally thought it went. I can usually tap the door with car running it will go up, it finally did when show was over i tried with car running window went up and has been fine since im sure it will f with me again. Must need that extra power with car running.

I took out and took apart both switches and they seem functionally fine except for a bit of corrosion on one. I didn't get a chance to reinstall and try them again after cleaning.
