Passenger Power Window?

Odd fact ... passenger power window will not operate via passenger switch, EXCEPT when rains or foggy (seriously!). Works OK from driver's side. Window lock/unlock switch position, no change. Rarely haul backseaters, unsure if rear wins affected. Any clue how to fix (cuz I've no plans to relo to Seattle)?

One passenger window or all of them?

A logical guess is that you need to find the broken wire. Use your $6-12 Volts Ohms Multi-meter to test for wire continuity, good grounds, and 12 volts where it is needed.

Or the switch has a poor connection or a corroded circuit board and the moisture/cooler air is completing a path well enough to make the switch work. The VOM will be your friend. If you don't have one, well, go get one, or, make a trip to the local pull a part, find a doner switch and try it out on your truck. Swapping parts is a valid troubleshooting tecnique, but it can get expensive

Front pass off/on, sometimes both rear pass. All work via driver. Unemployed ... can't afford VOM/tester parts. Too bad one of y'all aren't closer to Poconos (PA) ...

I'm afraid you're going to need to replace the driver window switch pod. If you can't afford a $6 VOM i don't think you'll be able to replace that, either.
