    Default Rear window wont go up

    Hi all, I have a 53 plate vectra Elite, From the drivers window control I can send rear drivers window down but it wont switch back up, I have to press the switch at the rear, all the other windows work fine from all locations,

    Also If i send windows down using key fob then let go all stop bar the faulty one which carrys on down to its stop, however the keyfob will send it back up.

    Any ideas on what it could be and or cost to repair it?

    Thanks

    Locate, unplug and re-seat the control boxes and all switches for a start. I'll nip in TIS in a bit and find them unless anyone else is able to assist.

    could the problem be the front switch?? I took it off and opened it up only to find is was only a PCB and nothing mechanical, is there anyone local to nottinghamshire who has a spare I could try and possibly buy if it is the problem

    This was the problem, its a shock that this never shorted and torched the car, is it worth complaining to vauxhall about this the cars only 4 years old id expect this from a 20 year old car.
