Stratus Window Switch

    The power window switch that controls my front passenger side window (from
    the driver's side) on my '02 Stratus has stopped working.

    The window still works using the switch on the front passenger side door,
    and if the window is down, master switch on the driver's door will bring the
    window up.

    Are the individual switches on the driver's side replaceable? Or is it one
    single master unit that would have to be replaced? Car has a lotta miles
    and I'm not sure I'd want to spend a pile on repairs.

    Also, I know there's a screw in the bottom of the door's hand grip that has
    to come out to pull the trim off in order to access the switch. I could not
    seem to dislodge the panel and didn't want to force it. What's the
    procedure to access the master switches?

    Many thanks.

    I believe that the switches are all together in a cluster that must be
    replaced as a unit. Before you replace the switch, you may wish to
    spray some electrical contact cleaner into the switch. This worked for
    me when the switch stopped working on my 1998 Stratus.

    If you need another switch, you may wish to try a salvage yard. The
    2001 - 2006 did not change much, so the years may interchange. I
    checked to see if NAPA has one, and they only have one for the left-
    rear. A new one at the dealer will probably be more than you wish to

    The switch should be replaceable, but if the old one is illuminated, the
    new one probably will not be. An online Chrysler parts catalog should
    be able to find the part number.

    It is also possible the switch is just dirty and cleaning it (compressed
    air?) could do the trick. Did the switch get wet, perhaps if it rained
    with the window down? I would try spraying the hell out of the switch
    with compressed air before taking anything apart.

    I can't help you with the repair procedures because my repair
    instructions do not show detailed door instructions for the Stratus.
