Passenger Side Power Window Stopped Working

I have a 1998 GS
What do you guys think it could be? Neither switch works (driver's door or passenger's door), so it's not the switch. Do I need a new regulator and a motor? Somebody said that for there car the regulator comes with the motor, is that true for the mits? I don't hear any noise at all, so I don't think its jammed. Is there a seperate fuse for the passenger side window? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You need to check if the motor is getting power before you get a new regulator. Just go at it with a voltmeter and see what you get.

I'm embarassed. lol. Didn't realize when you lock the windows it just locks the passenger side ...
But it does go down and come up slow and squeeks, so that's why I figured it must have died. Didn't even think about the lock since the driver's side worked fine. How can I fix this? Not a huge deal in the winter, but if I need to roll it down to talk to somebody or something it'll be annoying if it squeeks all the way down real slow.

May just need some lubrication in the tracks. Clean all electrical contacts if dirty, and lube everything like pulleys, pivot points, etc. Or it could be the motor is dying.

Re: Passenger Side Power Window Stopped Working

I like to use white lithium grease spray down the rails every now and then when it gets slow.

Re: Passenger Side Power Window Stopped Working

Have you by chance recently taken off the door panels? I remember one time I forgot to plug the switch back in on the passenger side and both switches stopped working.
