I had a similar problem develop in my 90. First, the front passenger
side switch would not raise the window, only lower it. A couple months
later, the switch went out all together and the driver side switch for
the front passenger window would not raise or lower the window at all.
(of course, the window decided that it wanted to stay down just prior to
rain. I frantically had to tear the passenger side door apart to try to
find a way to get the damn thing up. Finally got it up by taking the
harness connector for the switch apart and crossing a couple of the wires.)
At first, I thought that both the driver and passenger side
switches for the front passenger side window were defective. Only the
passenger side switch, however, was actually bad. The circuit is set up
so that if the passenger side switch goes completely out, you can not
control the actuator motor with the drivers side switch. Weird, huh?
I found this out the hard way: took both door panels completely apart
and found only the passenger side switch to be bad.
