Window problems can be hard to find the cause. but for what you tell us here I would say that you most likely have a broken wire in the door jam where the hinges are. Wires are known to break in this areas it may be on the ground side that it has broke. If you have a hard time see any cuts in the wires then pull and feel the wires, they could be broken on the inside of the rubber where you can't see them.

Ford expedition drivers side window won't roll up

well windows are usually pretty simple. It could be the window switch, the regulator bound up, or the motor itself went out. try jiggling the switch, actuate the switch over and over..see if you get any movement. sometimes smacking the side panel will jolt the motor. If that doesn't work i usually take off the door panel, try supplying the motor power, if that works that tells me the switch is bad. if the motor doesnt do anything even with 12volts supplied, then that tells us the motor is bad. if you hear the motor work but its grinding and nothing happens, the regulator is bad. Let me know if you have questions, i can help you further

Window motor replacement

Rarely the motor goes bad, check the switch first, i bet it will be the regulator. The regulator is a track with cable of wires run on plastic pulley fail, causing the cable in the regular to become tangle up like a bird nest jaming up the motor causing it to lock up. If you hear some kind of noise or motor running when you use the switch but the window does not work then the switch is good, it will be the window regulator. Its easy to replace if you know what you doing, part will run you about 100 bucks new. check around with your local mechnics, do not get him to work on it while he's working at his shop/dealer bc of the shop hours they will chrage you. find one or ask him is he willing to do side work, and offer him 25-30 buck for installations. Its take about 30minute to install. look on ebay for the parts, will be alot cheaper.

Driver side front power window does not work, switch is good Either motor or regulator?

bad motor if it doesnt work at all....if the window works but is slow u need to replace the motor an regulator since a sticking window regulator will overheat the motor causing it to fail prematurely ..u dont want to pay for the repair twice plus it is easier to replace both parts at the same time since they r connected to each other

Passenger power window quit it a fuse or breaker or what? The drivers window works fine.

hi, if the drivers window works fine then this suggests the fuse is ok, if you can control the passenger window from the driver side and it dont work and the switch on the passenger side dont work the window then this would point towards either motor or regulator at fault, if the drivers side and passenger side switch are the same then you can swap the switches over all you need to do is pry them out and unclip the wires and swap them over this way you can test if its the switch at fault or the motor.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine

Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.

Vwpassat20006 1.9TDI, passenger side power window,keeps opening after it is closed from the drivers side, it can keep going up & down about halfway on Its own. Is there a "brain" printed circut...

the modules may need reset if that doesnt work it may need a module for the window motor to reset use switch run window up holding switch in up position until it has been up for 10 seconds then run down in the same manner do this for both front windows if this doesnt work you will need to take it where it can be scanned through the window modules usually vw dealer only has this capability unless you know someone with vagcom

My passenger side window on my 2005 taurus sel. will go down, but the motor doesnt make a noise, nor does the winow go up when i hit the down button on eather door.

Check the windows switch on driver side. Most of the time if driver side switch goes bad it effects everything to work properly. There's really no way to test the switch unless you have volt meter tester, switch are 40 bucks new and 10-15 used at juck yard. If your driver door switch working fine than check you regulator and motors. to get to it you will have to take the door apart and its painful and not easy task but if little mechanical incline with proper tolls, you do fine. Before you tear into the door, check or replace the door switch first, 99% of the time it solved the problems, assuming the window motor is working. hope that help..good luck!
