3rd Generation Power Window Problem!!!!!!!

OK, this is really kicking my but. Let me start off:

95 Camry Coupe 4cyl 5spd

Main Problem- Right side window will not roll down

What I have notice:
+Master switch will let me roll up and down driver side window.
+Master switch will let me lock the doors
-Master switch will not let me roll down or up passenger window
-Master switch will not let me unlock the doors
-/+ Do not know if the window lock even works
+Passenger controls locks and unlocks
-Passenger controls will not roll up or down window

Tired Solution:

~Pick up another Master switch and swap it - nothing changed

~Pick up passenger power window regulator - I took the door apart to get to the plug so I can try the new regulator without fully taking the window out. The new one moved up just a little (not sure if it truly work right) and stop at as if the window would be in the close position. Now trying to roll down the window nothing.

What I noticed with both new & old passenger power window regulators:

+I hear and feel the motor click when I hit the control to roll up the window.

-Both will do nothing when I press the switch to roll down window

Conclusion
I do not know if its a electrical problem or should I try to buy another passenger control switch.

Input please!!!!
Thanks

I and others here, have had the problem of broken wires inside the rubber conduit that goes between the driver's side door and the body.

So check that wiring, seems to be a common problem.

I'm actually having the same problem. My passenger side window would sometimes roll up, but not down, sometimes down and not up. Sometimes, if I held the switch on the passenger side and the master switch, it would go up. Weirldly enought, the other day, the window went down all the way when I pushed the button, that window is not an express window, so it shouldn've stopped when I let go of the switch. The window wouldn't go up, so I reversed the polarity and it shot up. Right now I have the whole panel apart, debating whether to put a new switch on the passenger side since I got 12v everywhere but the switch. Dealership puts the switch at ~$54.

^+1 with Darkwish. It is almost always the wires. But not always. There are some easy checks that you can do with a multimeter (or a test light if you are creative) to isolate the problem.

DoctorJ did a great write up on this for the GEN 1/2. Most of it will apply to this car as well.
The essentials of Power Window System troubleshooting

Often, it's the loose screw between the steering wheel and the driver's seat that needs to be fixed first!

Talking

Well I finally fix my power window and lock problem. It was the WIRES! Two of them where broken between the rubber door jam sleeve. So I just re-wired them, wash the car and called it a night, or morning now since it 2:50am . Now I can finally fully detail my interior and do my tints.
