I have a 92 4Runner and I had same problem, went to a used lot and got the motor for $75 then it happened again almost a year later and my mechanic took all the panelling off, I went and got another motor yet it still wouldn't work, so wasn't the motor. I went back to yard where they put the switch in that controls it for $15. and thats what it was, and a lot simpler & cheaper to start from there first!

85 s10 Chevy blazer: back window and tailgate won't open


Very typical for the window motor to fail. The tailgate will not open when the window isn't rolled down. If there is voltage to the terminals of the window motor when you actuate the switch but the motor does not turn, replace the motor. Once you are able to roll the window down, the tailgate should open again.

My tailgate window is stuck in the downward position and the regulator is broken. Do I have buy tracks with the regulator? Help me


Hi there,

That really depends on what you mean by "broken".

Most electric window regulators have motors which can be replaced - is it just your motor not working, or the actual mech, cable?

If you just need a motor only (not the entire regulator mechanism), you may get away with just obtaining another motor, from your local automotive dismantler/wrecker.

The regulators can usually be removed fairly easily, if you know what you're doing.


Cheers,

Scott

2000 Freelander-window stuck in down after cable replace


Firstly check the wiring then motor is only working one way that means that the power is not being reversed to put it back up, switch the wires around from the switch if it go's back up then you know there is a wiring fault.

hope this helps

91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open


No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

Tailgate window doesnt work


It could be several things. Make sure the tailgate is latched all the way. The motor could be bad. remove the tailgate cover inside the truck. use a test light and have someone press the up and down button while checking for power at the motor wiring. If you have power going to motor on both sides ,the motor is bad. If you do not have power check for broken wiring or bad switches.

Replace motor on tailgate window on a 1987 ford bronco


You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.

If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.

Back door wont open and window wont go down


The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!
