Default Passenger window switch inoperative

My passenger window switch does not want to work at all. It is like I have the "window lock" on the driver's side on all the time (yes, I have tried cycling it many times). The window works fine when operated from the drivers side. I was just curious if this was a known problem, and which door should I start with? The "window lock" on the drivers side, the switch on the passenger side, or somewhere else?
Just another reason I wish I had waited for a GTS...

Thanks guys!

It could just be that the passenger side switch needs replacing.

I agree.
If the switch on the drivers side door will move the passenger window, but the switch on the passenger side won't work, then it's more than likely just the switch.

Sounds good. Surgery I will start there. The only other thing I was thinking it could be is the "window lock" stuck engaged.

I had the same problem on my 95 stang I took the switch out and cleaned the contacts and put dielectric grease on them and its been working like new. For some reason the right door window and door lock switch would work great and then they would start to fade I cleaned them more than once and they would work ok for awhile and then stop. My son told me to clean them again and this time put some dielectric grease on the contact points to keep them from corroding, this fixed the problem. I used 400 grit sandpaper folded it over and pulled it back and forth through the contact points untill they were clean and then greased them, (this should fix the switch).

Thanks much man! I was wondering if cleaning it was possible. Hopefully this will save me some $

Maybe this a 'vert only thing? Mine has a 5th button below the 4 window controls on the driver's side called "lock." It prevents the annoying passenger from playing with the window.

Today at actually got above freezing, so a brushed off the car and examined the window switch. Bingo! Cleaning didn't work, dielectric grease and all, but a slight tweaking of the frail copper bars did. Thanks very much all!

I have to resurrect this one folks.
Jury rigging the switch is like blowing on the old Nintendo cartridges. Their has to be another solution to this one because my mustang has the same problem and the switch rig did not work.
Heres the deal.
The passenger switch will not operate the passenger window, but the driver side will. The lock button is not the problem. This is an even wierder problem, because if I hold the driver side switch down the window will start down, then if some hits the passenger side switch, it will stop the window from moving. I replaced the passenger side switch so that is not the issue here. I am thinking that their may be a problem with some sort of relay.
Anyone have any ideas on this one?
