Question about 2008 Mazda Cx 7

Open Question

Power windows go down by themselves

After my daughter shuts off her mazda cx7 engine and goes into her office to work, Some time during the day her windows will be down part way when she returns to her car. It doesn't happen on daily basis just occasionally. It maybe 1 ormore of windows, she never knows.
It may be 3" or enough to stick an arm in the window. Thanks for any help you can be!

1. Turn ignition switch to "on" position.
2. Open passenger window completely from passenger side window switch.
3. Close passenger window completely from passenger side window switch, and hold switch for an additional 2 seconds.
4. Turn ignition back to "lock" position.

That's it. Works like a champ. And here you thought it was more than just a battery dying....I did.

you need to take it to your local dealer and raise a big fuss because this is a known problem and if you yell loud enough you should be able to get this fixed under warranty.

They're charging you for it? Since your car's only 2 years old, they should be covering it under warranty. Timing Chains don't break normally, and when they do, usually it's on a much older car. Mazda should be covering the costs for this under the power train warranty (which is good for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first)

SOURCE: Mazda MPV: how to raise power window manually?

Hi,
I just had this problem with my driver door window. I took the door panel off and discovered that the motor was burnt out by testing with a meter.

I called around and found a motor at a junkyard for $135 dollars! I didn't bother looking at the price for a new one yet. Budget is very tight right now.

Like you I just wanted a way to get the window up until I could get around to replacing the part.

You can find out what I did with pictures here.

This is for the front driver side window. I did the same for the rear passenger side window and the steps are fairly similar.

There are few less steps to getting the panel off, but it was a little trickier to get the panel back on. (The key was to pull the bottom out and start at the front: Lower the forward part of the panel over the top of the frame first - while pushing firmly at the top of the panel).

The steps for disengaging the motor and raising the window with the motor re-engaged are almost the same. The only differences are that the motor is in a different position in the frame. It's down near the bottom of the frame - and seemingly inaccessible at first glance.

However, if you disconnect the motor from the frame and let it dangle on the regulator wires, you can pull it all the way through to the other port in the frame. That way, it turns out that, it was even easier to work with than the driver window motor.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 Mazda CX7, Yesterday I got in my car to go to work & the check engine light came on. Now the car is just chugging along.


It could be a multitude of problems. You can probably try spark plugs and air filter (probably wouldn't hurt if you haven't changed them for a while), but you may still need to take it for service. Sometimes you can take it to an auto parts store (NAPA, O'Reilly, etc) or auto service center and they will check it with their computer.

Mazda cx7 engine noise


Does the engine have hydraulic lifters? If so air can get into the chamber under the lifter and cause lifter noise.

Diagnosis and repair requires removing the Valve Cover. A fairly easy job for your local shop.
