The truck is killing me this month. Passenger power window died. No whining or grinding, just dead. Fuse is fine, driver's side window works fine, power locks work fine on both sides.Thoughtthe power lockshad died a few months ago, and one day it just "snapped" out of it and started working again.
My guess is:
1. window motoron pass side circuit breaker tripped,
2.window motor is shot or,
3.driver side power door/window switch has short - LEDs haven't worked in years, may also explain the "buggy" door lock problemI had. My understanding is the driver side acts as a master, and the pass side is a slave device. So if the driver's side is shot, the pass side won't work, correct?
1&3 obviously cheapest to fix. Anybody know what a "trim panel removal tool" is? Fancy name for a screwdriver or putty knife?
Making a list for the salvage yard...might pick up a Winstar electric fan set if they have one.

Trim panel removal tool - mine is a wide bent screwdriver (or narrow putty knife)with a slot in the middle for the nylon fasteners. I would suspect the drivers door power control set, the passenger side motor almost never wears out. Yours doesn't open from either side of the truck, right?

if its being real strbbron lift it up about a 1/4 in or so just so you can see between the switch panel and door panel there is 1 clip on the front and 2 on the back (or the other way around) if u use a blade screwdriver to push them in till come out easer
when i had to take mine out i was pissed off so i just grabed onto it and yanked and it came out no problem. about a year and a half ago my power locks shortd out they would work from the pass side but not the drivers side i checked everything replaced both switches (i now have one with auto window on the drivers side ) then about 3am i got an idea so i went out cut the wires that go to and from the drivers side to pass side hooked 2 new wires up and it worked so somwehrer between the drivers side and pass side there was a short in the wire so i just abandeds the wires and ran new ones so i dont think the pass side is compleatley a slave to the drivers side at least for the locks because tha pass side would lock both
