master window 1999 v70xc..Driver side window rolled

Customer Question

The master window switch on my 1999 V70XC developed bad habits. Driver side window rolled down but not back up. I took the switch out and apart. By pushing the brass contact down, I got it to roll up. In the meantime, I ordered a new one. Not here yet.

I rolled the passenger side rear window down today along with the sunroof. Neither will go back up by either the old master switch, the sunroof switch, or the passenger side window switch. Checked all fuses, and they are good. Pulled the master switch out again and tried to manually operate the up go. The master switch door lock does work so I do believe current is getting to the switch, but nothing else works on it.

I live at 7800 foot level in the Colorado Rockies so I really need the glass up and sunroof closed. Any ideas?

I already had figured that the new window switch would fix it. It hasn.t come yet, and my question is this.... can I get the window and sunroof closed manually while the window switch is in route?

ENES : You can when you jump sunroof Motor wires but problems when you do that problem people who done it sun roof moduel goes bad what cost around $300 you can try it but I would not recommend you better tape it. But is up to you
