Have taken car into a dealer and have been advised that if battery has gone flat, the sensors will need resetting, to do this, disconnect freshly charged or replaced battery for two to three minutes, reconnect, turn key to position two and operate window. Hold button down and wait for click (window open), close window and hold button in close position until you hear the click. This should reset the sensors to open and close positions. Juddering maybe caused by build up of grime in slider, squirt some silicone based lubricant into window slider/guide, this should help. If none of this helps, it could mean that the motors need replacing.

Help both my front power windows on my 1999 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport are busted. First the passenger window started "skipping" when going down. It finally sounded like it fell off the track. I opened...

any mechanic will change the window regulators , sounds classic regulator failure , starts with a bit of juddering and then stops working , usually when window down (of course). there not that difficult to change yourself as your 30% there if you get the door panel off , keep me posted if you wish

No sound from speakers in 2000 GMC Yukon? Whats going on?

1 Disconnect the trucks negative battery cable.
  • 2 Unhook the clip for the door's manual window crank with a hooked tool behind the handle (or rub a rag behind the handle), or for a power window, pry off the window switch assembly from the door handle with a trim stick and disconnect its electrical connector.
  • 3 Pry off all small panels and bezels on or near the door with the trim stick, including the triangular panel on the mirror mount and the bezel surrounding the door handle.
  • 4 Unscrew and remove all of the mounting screws for the door's inner trim panel then pull the panel out to detach the clips. Disconnect all remaining electrical connectors on the door panel.
  • 5 Peel off the plastic water deflector sheet from the door.
  • 6 Press down on the speaker's upper mounting tab while grasping the speaker, then tilt the speaker out of the door frame and lift it off the tabs on the bottom. Disconnect the speaker's electrical connector.
  • Connect the replacement speaker to the electrical connector.
  • 8 Secure the speaker to the lower tabs and pivot it into the mounting hole, clipping it in place with the door's mounting tab.
  • 9 Press the plastic shield back into place on the door.
  • 10 Reconnect the trim panel onto the door, connecting all needed electrical connectors and engaging all its clips, then apply its mounting screws. Reconnect all smaller panels and bezels to the panel.
  • 11 Reinstall the window crank or control switch with its clip or electrical connector.
  • 12 Reconnect the black battery cable onto the negative terminal.

    The interior lights and the stereo wont turn on in my 2000 sunfire

    I have worked on multiple door, wiring harness's on GM's. Those blasted electric window motor windows love tojamb up. Or their window switches, (momentary contact switch) will stick in the "up" or the "down" position without your knopwledge, burning up the motors. Anyway, back to your question; I have had Multiple instances where the radio fails to operate & interior lights fail, whil I have the harness unplugged waiting on parts. Mostly on family memeber GM cars. But, It has hap0pened alot. Has there bee recent damage to the LH (passenger) door or electric motor control.????

    Electric window only goes down half way

    On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal. It sounds like the guide rails may be loose and snagging the window. Or your regulator may be broken (not likely)

    Front drivers side window misalignment

    Take the door panel off slowly because it's only held on with plastic clips. There is a plastic inner to the door, cut this carefully with a sharp knife, so you can repair with gaffer tape later. Lower the window, dont put your hands ANYWHERE near the movement at the moment. Now, slowly click the switch so the window goes up, dont press and hold, or it will go up all the way. (as you know) as the mecanised system goes up, it looks like a pair of scissors, watch where the window grabs, it will be plainly obvious, the window will start to judder. click the switch once moreto see where the scissor action is failing. Once you have found that, grease that area as much as possible. lower the window again, raise the window, if it sticks, lower it again and carry on until the grease works into the scissor action, don't try to actually take the window out, it's arder to get back in, start the engine (cos it does take a lot outof the battery) and just keep lowering and raising the window until the grease works in. Once that has been done, close the window up to the full height, tape the plastic back in place, because the door speaker could get damaged, and clip the door panel back in place. Job Done. Hope all goes well, let me know, regards, Dave

    Driver's window

    I have the same problem, its more than likely a sticking motor. I just punch the door panel below the window switch (where the motor is) and it works. You may have to bang it a few times but i have to do it about once a week on the front right or my car.
