Default Power window not working from driver'* control

Alright, I read the tech info article on power windows not working from the drivers controls if you open the switch *after* I did it by mistake...
One thing it doesn't cover is how to repair it.

The passenger side window comes down fine from the passenger'* seat control but not from the driver'* side...
Any suggestions?

I would suspect the switch itself... Have you tried both up and down?

Heh, Power windows are fun, My rear pass window only goes down from the drivers', and only goes up by the switch on the door.

when that happened to my dads bonneville i just cleaned the contacts under the switch that doesnt work and used a qtip with rubbing alcohol it was like just dirty but i would check that first. the other problem i had was that the plug contact to the window motor was loose and would not make good comtact i just took apart the door and bent out the contact on the plug and it made good when plug was inserted again.
