I had problems with my window switches on my 1984 Coupe GT and got a fix
from a member off of the list a couple of years ago.

Buy some Contact cleaner from Radio Shack called "Tuner Control", stock
number 64-4315 and spray it into the switches and work it a until the
windows start to move.  This cleans the carbon off and allows the
connnections to work.  I did this about two years ago and haven't had
the problem since with my window switches.  The bottle two years ago ran
about $9.50 and of course I still have most of the bottle left.
