Car is a 1998 Corolla LE A/T

So here's the issue, I had all but one of my windows working fine but my dad as Mr. Handy Man wanted to make that all 4 windows. The window that wasn't working was the passenger side. It went down but wouldn't go up unless you made metal contact on the bottom of the switch. The motor was perfectly fine.

What he did was unplug my power window switch in the drivers side and plugged one in from a 7th gen corolla. The plug went right in but of course the switch was a different size in general. He successfully got the driver's window down and there it stood. :wtf:

From this point on, nothing worked. Whether it was this switch or the old one, window is stuck. Now here's the kicker, the power locks from the same switch work perfectly fine. And I'm guessing the sunroof is wired to the power windows since it isn't working either. :dunno:

We've checked all of the fuses all around the car, no luck there. The motors work fine, I've been using the power windows perfectly fine. What I'm starting to think now is that he knocked a cable loose or ungrounded the connection?

I need :help: ASAP. It's going to be 25 degrees tonight and snowing...

yes they share two fuses... 30a power and 10a guage. I suspect the 30a is open because your guages work?
Its located in the fuse box by your left knee. Its on the right side near the bottom. I believe its pink? It does not look like the other type of fuses. Its bigger and you cant really test it easily with a test light or meter like the other type.

you're awesome! replaced the 30a with one from a different car and it works flawlessly. it was actually broken, guess my dad never noticed. as for my passenger window, i have a new power window switch coming in the mail soon. thanks again! :thanks:
