Power window issues

Sorry for my first post being needing help. I have a 2007 compass. The right front window will not roll up. I am a very experience auto collision tech (15 years). I did a quick test initially power to motor ok bad motor right..... The jeep says no. I have replaced motor regulator and switch on that door and still the same problem....... Angry face and such. Under more testing with meter on motor plug this time shows power and ground on down cycle but when shifted to up the ground goes dead. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Where are the other fuse/relay boxes located? Found the one under the hood.

Make sure all you ground straps a clean and have good ground. Being a 2007 corrosion has been an issue on harness etc on these poorly engineer FIAT vehicles. Is it only that door that has this problem (other work and at the normal speed up/down?).

How are they controlling it? grounding the circuit to activate the motor or power to the motor with the ground always there on that wire? If its looks like the ground try running a ground to the motor from a good source and see if it works they you'll know.

PS: The TIPM controls all of these and other circuits. There buss connections may be corroded or poor.

passenger power window won't go up.

had an issue with the passenger front window that would roll down under power but not roll up on a 2011 compass. Read everything i could find about what may be the problem. some said grounding issue... some said motor... one I read said they took it to a dealer and they disassembled it completely and checked grounds, switches, fuses, motors and everything else that it could be... they couldn't find anything... they put it back together and it worked. They didn't charge the customer (shocking) as they didn't do anything except take it apart and put it together. well I did the same thing. It would not roll up with either switch, on drivers door or passenger door. It is my understanding that the switches are wired in series. Therefore if the passenger door isn't making good contact, the drivers door switch wouldn't work either. anyway, i completely disassembled it and could not find anything wrong. so i hooked up the passenger door switch and shazam..... it worked like a champ. there had to be some corrosion on the connections of the plug. and taking it off and putting it on made connection again... that's my story and I'm sticking to it. At least it is fixed and it only cost me time.....

I'm having an issue with my 2010 jeep compass last year early December when I go the jeep the passenger window went down and never went back up the dealership said that they would fix but was never able to connect with a good since I am a single mom and work during the open hours and only have one car. I have been driving the jeep with no passenger window, yesterday my driver window decided to do the same thing and is stuck down. The dealership was able to get the window up and disconnect the power to the passenger door window switch. It's cold and I need to get this issue fixed. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue? I am wanting to do this on my own if anyone could give me some ideas to try that would be great. The fuses are good and I have not checked the power to the switch to the motor and vic a vera but will do that tomorrow. So if that does not work anything else I can try?
