Drivers side window

Hi my drivers side window on my ford escort has got stuck. i put the window down and as it was put all the way down i heard a bit of a bang. i didnt think anything of it but as i went to put it up it wont work. i have had a look to see if it came of the runner but it hasnt. i checked the switch and there is no power running to it. My passenger side window runs of the same fuse as the drivers side does and that is fine so i am a bit lost. Any suggerstion to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated as it will cost my a fortune to take it to the garage thanks.

    I had a very similiar problem. It turned out that the window motor has an overheat sensor that will reset once it cooler but the main problem with mine was that the tracks were sticking and needed to be greased once they were greased everything works fine.

Window stuck down on 1994 ford explorer


while holding the switch in the up position, bang on the middle part of the door panel, if the motor is stuck then this will usually unstick it. but if motor is running then you will need a new window regulator.

My drivers side electric window won't work


Hi Hawkeye1973

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.

If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.

TULL FAMILY
You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.

Very best regards
