Take the door panel back off and see if there maybe a bind in the actuator itself to the lock and if you cannot see it move and you have a 12volt tester and there is no power going to it it is very possible the actuator will have to be replaced and make sure to check all the fuses first to see if the one to the door is not blown

Seems like battery wont hold charge and door locks stopped working. both happened at same time. Are the door locks draining the battery somehow, or is this just a coincidence?


Possible just coincidence. The life expectancy of a battery is 5yrs. Anything over that could mean a bad battery. If battery is ok.. You need to do a parasitic draw test to check for a drain on the battery and circuits. If you are not famaliar with a volt/amp meter and electrical I would suggest having a pro take a look

The odds of both switches going bad at the same time is high, remove the door panel and tap on the window motor with a hammer, while trying the switches. I may have jammed up.

  2. Raise the window to half-up position and hold in place by inserting a rubber wedge door stops at the front and rear of the window between window and inner panel.
  3. Remove the rear guide channel and inner panel cam channel.
  4. Punch out the center pins of the regulator rivets; then drill out the rivets using a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) bit.
  5. Move the regulator rearward and disconnect wire harness from the motor (if equipped). Disengage the roller on the regulator lift arm from glass sash channel.
  6. Remove the regulator through the rear access hole.

Fig. 1: Front door window regulator mounting

CAUTION If electric motor removal from the regulator is required, the sector gear must be locked in position. The regulator lift arm is under tension from the counterbalance spring and could cause personal injury if the sector gear is not locked in position.
  1. Drill a hole through the regulator sector gear and backplate and install a bolt and nut to lock the sector gear in position.
  2. Using a 3 / 16 in. (5mm) bit, drill out the motor attaching rivets and remove the motor from the regulator.

Fig. 2: Locking the sector gear on the window regulator motor



To install:

  1. To install the motor to the regulator. Use a rivet tool, J-29022 or equivalent, and install 3 / 16 in. (5mm) rivets or 3 / 16 in. (5mm) nuts and bolts. Remove the bolt and nut used to secure the sector gear in position.
  2. Place the regulator through the rear access hole into the door inner panel. If the electric regulator is being installed, engage the wire connector to motor prior to installing the regulator to the inner panel.
  3. Locate the lift arm roller into the glass sash channel.
  4. Using rivet tool J-29022 or equivalent, rivet the regulator to the inner panel of the door using 1 / 4 in. (6mm) 1 / 2 in. (13mm) aluminum peel type rivets (part No. 9436175 or equivalent). If the rivet tool is not available, use the following nut and bolt method:
    1. Install U-clips on the regulator at the attaching locations. Be sure to install the clips with clinch nuts on the outboard side of the regulator.
    2. Locate the regulator in the door inner panel. If the electric regulator is being installed, connect the wire connector to the regulator motor.
    3. Locate the lift arm roller in the glass sash channel.
    4. Align the regulator with clinch nuts to holes in the inner panel.
    5. Attach the regulator (and motor) to the door inner panel with 1 / 4 -20 x 1 / 2 in. screws (part No. 9419723 or equivalent) into 1 / 4 in. (6mm) nuts with integral washers. Tighten the screw to 90-125 inch lbs. (10-14 Nm) torque.
  5. Install the inner panel cam channel and rear guide channel.
  6. Remove the rubber wedge door stops at the front and rear of the window between window and inner panel.
  7. Install the inner panel water deflector and the door trim panel.

I have a 1993 Ford Tempo and am having problems removing the motor from the door. I already have the door panel removed and the power disconnected from the motor.


remove the door panel and check to make sure the linkage to the lock assembly is still attached. I can't give an estimate because I don't know what is wrong at this point

are the locks manual or electric?i have seen most electric locks freeze up because of rust/.corrosion.the rubber accordian seal fails and moisture does it's job.there is no lubrication on the mechanism.it's basically a push pull magnet tube with a spiral grooved actuator rod.this is to assure no accidental vibration/jar induced movement.also means very difficult to budge when corroded.i have gotten a few to move by grabbing lock post with pliers and pulling hard.good luck!

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

WIndows don't work and I need to open up the door cover!


First try running the window switch to fully lower the window. Yeah, I know it's already down, but the regulator uses a push/pull cable that has detached from its connection to the window mount. It "pulls" the window up and "pushes" the window down. When detached from the window mount of the regulator, the window motor doesn't know when to quit turning, and so the cable has run all the way through the motor, certainly further than it should be run. If you're lucky, the end of the cable (the end that should normally be attached to the window attachment platform) is still at the motor and can re-mesh with the gears of the motor and allow the motor to pull it back in. When my regulator broke, the cable ran back into the far recesses of the door and tried to seek new paths. I suspect yours has run too far and "found" the latch/lock mechanism and jammed it. By "lowering the window" from the switch, the motor will hopefully pull the cable back out of the places it does not belong.

If that doesn't work to get your door open, you obviously cannot remove the inner door panel with the door shut. So find a used door (same year, model and door position) with the the same color interior at a junkyard. After purchasing the new inner door panel and the two door lock and latch push/pull rods (horizontal), you can cut away your existing panel knowing you have replacement parts on standby. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT THROUGH THE WINDOW and LOCK CONTROL ELECTRICAL WIRES! Start the cut across the sill, then pull away as you cut downward so you can see the wires. The predominant possibilities, in this case, are that the regulator cable is still jammed in the latch/lock mechanisms or that the glass rattled out of its track and jammed the latch/lock control rods or broken the plastic levers to which they are attached.

I imagine this advise is too late for you, but it may help someone else. Good luck!
