Pull the door panel off and youll see where the window motor is . it usually is reveted to the frame drill the revets out and youwill be able to pull the motor out. sometimes you can buy a rebuild kit for them. inside the motor there are three plastic peices the get eaten up the rebuild kit has these pieces and it is pretty easy to fix. if you hear the motor working but the windows dont go up of down you may be able to do this type of fix if not then you have to buy a knew motor

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

My driver side front window does not come down but the passanger side front and back and driver back do go up and down. Do i need to change the power window motor or is it the window regulator for driver...


regulator usually wears out and breaks or gets bound and burns up motor, change them both if available. Good sign of bad regulator is sloppy window in track, or window off track. I always replace them together if they are available. it is possible that you just need a switch, but most likely the reg/motor.

I replaced the driver's side window motor because


I don't know everything there is to know about window motors, but I have seen this before, both mine went out at the same time, not together but a couple weeks apart, like they were dated. Anyway, I replaced both motors, then both operators. Now they both work fine. I would hang on to the old motor, you never know, it might be good, You might have a bad switch on the door, I had to take my switches apart on my other truck and clean the contacts, got both motors working again, Hope this helps.

The window on the driver's side will not go up or down and will not stay up.


Need to check power to switch - then to window motor -- to do this you have to remove drivers door panel and use and test light with the ignition switch in the on postion. With test light connected to window motor, press switch up or down , if light comes on and motor does not - replace motor - if no power at motor replace switch..

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.

Pontiac Grand Prix Drivers side window won't go down


take the door panel off and see if your regulator is not stripped it is a cable regulator so the wire will be hanging if not try directly operating the motor at the motor and see if it moves up and down fairly easy and fast like new. if it does the problem is in the switch and will need to be replaced. the plug on the motor is a two wire plug and can be hooked up in either direction to make window go up and down.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window


The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.
