Hi folks my window on the passenger side only works when you press both buttons. Drivers switch and passenger switch dont know why any ideas fellas. Thanks for anything that might point me in the right direction.

Sounds like the switches are assembled wrong.

On the passenger side, the switches are apart of the circuit. If they are assembled wrong, you'll end up with a variety of issues.

Simply take both switches apart and put them back together like this:

Edit: I realized that if you don't know what you're looking at, the switch may appear assembled correctly, when it isn't.

The top side with the Numbers is your reference point. Make sure that the contacts are placed just like the picture.

The Curled under parts of the contact switch not only act as a spring, they are in constant contact with the negative, and transfer it to the Passenger window. Put them in backwards and you have the wrong current running to the window, and it won't work.

When you have an issue like yours, I believe it's because one switch is right, and the other is wrong.
