Re: power window drive side not working
THE DRIVERS SIDE SWITCH IS USED MORE THAN ANY OTHER CHANCES ARE ITS THE SWITCH YOU CAN CHECK IF MOTOR IS OK BY SIMPLY REMOVING WIRES OFF SWITCH AND TOUCHING TOGETHER TO SEE IF MOTOR IS OK OR MAYBE A WIRE HAS COME OFF THE MOTOR ITSELF HOPE THIS IS HELPFULL GLENN

It could be as simple as a blown fuse or 2, wiring, up/down switch. actuator(s) relay, window motor(s) etc. What is the year make and model of the vehicle? does this happen all the time or does it seem to work at all? Please include any troubleshooting info you have done so far. Sounds like this will be a quick fix once we identify the source of the problem. Please advise, Regards, -Tim
The window motors have over load protection inside and the motors are worn out and dragging causing them to shut off till they cool. Simple way to repair is to replace the motors.Any auto supply can get them for you and you can probably find a video on you tube on how to replace them.
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
If it is only 1 window,it is unlikely a fuse as it would control all windows and probably 1 or 2 more systems.The fuse box under the hood should not be an issue either since it is a very high power controller and is called a power distribution box.If the window has an option to be operated by more than one switch and does not work with either the motor is probably bad.If it is the driver window and has only a switch to control that particular window I can tell you a fairly simple way to determine what is wrong.If it is a different window which can be operated by 2 separate switches,I would say the window motor.If you would like more help or I did not get the scenario correct,please write back and I will get an auto link to your post and we'll figure it out.Good luck!

check with dealer first before doing anything ur vehicle should be under warranty---- check power to switch at door pop out switch and check for power if power and switch is good than problem lies with motor -either jammed, loose, or broken wire/connection or motor burnt out-need to remove door panel to access the window motor
The window motor has two wires to it. One is for UP & the other is for DOWN. If working one way & not the other, your motor is fine. Check the switch & wiring to resolve. It may be corroded or burnt contacts
