Driver side window stopped working - in the down position, of course. Wiring looks intact; is it the door switch?


More likely the motor.You might try holding the switch in "up" while slamming the door shut(breakes corrosion loose at motor brushes)If this is a no-go,you'll have to pull the panel to see if you get 12v with a test light at the motor when the swich is activated.If not,back probe at the switch and try it there.

to fix 1996 ford taurus power window switch does not work on drivers side window


Ive seen this a few times. Try turning the key to position 2 (so your radio and accesories are on), then open the door. Hold the switch either up or down (the direction you want the window to go) and slam the door. It should work, usually this problem is caused by a loose contact in the power window motor. Once you perform the slam trick, it should work for awhile (my friends has lasted 3 years). Hope this helps!

2005 Chrysler Town & Country. Passenger side window problem.


HAVEK 1005 sounds right on track.... but also try this, usually works well for non functional power windows, specially Caravans.

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

NOW, for the naysayers that says you must replace power window motors etc, at $$$ cost because the above fix does not work, or is not long lasting fix, or less than a "professional fix".... Well then, when the window fails to operate again, apply same fix again at that time.

I have fixed my van this way numerous times (usually once a year), and to all local friends I recommend this fix too, likewise do the same and are happy with the solution.

2003 F-150 4X4 with extended cab: while driving, the engine sputters at about 45-55 mph. It acts as if the fuel/air mix is not right? Also, the power window on the passenger side will not roll up.


here is a trick to get the window back up. open the door with the key on. hold the switch in the up position and slam the door shut while holding the switch inthe up position this should jar the motor enough to get the window up. but you are going to need a new window motor eventually if this trick works for you
Please rate me
Thank you
