ive gotta a problem with all my windows except the driver, the back windows have a tendancy to get the stuck, i will roll them down then they wont go back up, they will keep going down, but not up, sometimes they get stuck for an hour or 2, but sometimes its a few weeks and then it works again, what would be causiong this, it has happened on both my rear windows, also my front passenger window only rolls down with the master swicth, not the passenger one, but it will go up with the passenger switch what would be wrong with that one? some1 please let me know, because its a reall annoying problem, thanks

if you are sure, that your power window motors seems to be OK, (you can figure it out) then it could be possible, that you have an electrical problem !

Sounds like you have a technical problem with you Power master switch. Should you need to open the rear of the switch unit here are some tips...

The main circuit board is held into place by a cross-head self tapping screw. The switches are sealed units except for the auto switch. To gain access to this, there is a small cross-head screw holding a small circuit board in place.
Be VERY VERY CAREFUL by removing the auto-switch board. It has some locating points. It is very easy to break the board. This also happend to me, as I tried to repair it. Should the copper tracks be damaged, you can make another board without too much problem (I have heared this, but never tried). There is a white plastic body about 6mm wide that holds a 3 prong copper connector. This may require gentle bending back into shape, and may require cleaning. I have found out that cleaning switch surrounds with polish is not a good idea.
Hope this helps (good luck)

The rear and passenger switches are all wired to the master switch, if the correct connection is not found the others will not work ( I realized this as I was working on replacing some windows, I lowered a rear window and days later when I went to put the window back I had removed the master switch and I couldn't get the window to go back up. I was puzzled and scratched my head for quite a few minutes till I realized that I still had the master switch off, put it back in and the window went right back up!). However, if you are able to move them down but not up then I would think that the problem is in the wiring or motor of the specific window.

As others have noted it could be the motor starting to go, since the motor runs in two directions running a window down is easier than running it up which normally means the up direction gives out first. The non-master switches are pretty easy to test if you want to do that first.

Is Silicone best for window seals?

My driver's window motor is starting to go. It seemed to stick before opening, so I'm sure this was not good for the motor. Anyone else know if Silicone is the best for your window seals? Will it protect the rubber or make it wear out faster?
