With a test light, check that there is power at the switch plug. If the other windows can be operated from this switch, no need to test. More times the fault is still in the switch. Since they are not water proof and have many contacts, just a few drops will cause a bad connection. You can unplug the motor and run jumper wires to the contacts, ground an positve. Watch your fingers!!! Frankster016

That big coil spring is part of the window regulator, that spring help's the window motor raise the window, the regulator will also have to be replace, that spring goes at the pivit point on the regulator, where the gear part of the window motor bolt's to.

Drivers side front window

That is the window regulator. I have a 2000 G/A GT and both my front windows are broken due to GM using made-to-break parts. Dealership wants $400 each, and you can't just replace that little plastic piece, you have to replace all the guide wires too, I just propped my windows up with a board, they will fall constantly until you do. I tried wedging them, but that didn't work well. You can look for the entire regulator assembly online, but the $5 board worked great for me.

1996 honda civic lx passanger power window problem

I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!

I need help replacing window motor asap on passanger side of car

Is this for a rear view mirror motor? or a side window? If it is for a side window motor you need to carefully take apart the door panel - the control (switch) panel on the window door panel is the trickest to remove - if your not careful you can break the clips when trying to get this dislodged from the door panel - after that there are a series of cover plates that cover the screws for removing this panel - and then there is all wires for the electronic devices - rear view mirror and other windows
(if it is the drivers side) etc...
Note you will lock out your radio if you try and disconnect the battery to do this - so becareful you should not have to disconnect the battery to do this work -
once you get down to seeing the window glass you are almost there - you have to get the window all the way up and then remove the plastic splash guard poly sheet...

The motor mounts are difficult to get to - and watch out to not cut yourself -
also the window needs propped up when you take out the motor ...
