Default Pass window switch

Hi, i have a 2003 dodge ram reg cab. When I got it the power window switch on the passenger side worked, and then on the way home it started randomly working. Now it doesn't work at all and to roll it down I have to use the drivers side switch. Not a huge problem just annoying. I have read a lot about these on the crew cabs and with it being the lockout switch but being as I have a reg cab there isn't one. Any help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Sounds like a loose connection. Sometimes if you pull it out, check the prongs and plug it back in that'll do the trick.

I tried that. I pulled both sides off and checked and cleaned both connections. Could I have a faulty switch? Is there any way to test the switches or power?

Do you have a multi meter? You can check the switch by checking the resistance across the switch terminals. It should show infinite resistance (off the scale) with the switch in off position, and 0 resistance when the switch is operated. (ie. when it is pushed, there should be a complete circuit.)

I do have a volt meter, but what pins do you check? I wasn't sure of that. Thanks

I realized that the little green light on the pass side switch isn't lite up. I am very stumped at this point and any help would be appreciated. Thanks
