Power window on Dodge Ram 1500

The passinger side window fall down when door was closed. I heard a metal sound fall inside of door and glass window will not go up or down. Ive not looked into it yet,but Im thinking that the track that holds the window in place came off. Thats the metal sound that I heard and can be heard everytime the door is shout. My question is before I start to take door planel off and try to fix this, will I be able to fix the problem or will it take a pro to fix it?

No this is something you can do yourself what you need to buy first is a window motor and regulator this is the motor track system prety simple to fix but you need to pull the window up by hand and wedge it in place so it won't move till you are ready to reattach it to the new track

There is a stuck or defective window switch, either in the driver's controller or the passenger controller. This is not a fuse problem.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch

If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

I heard a rod fall or that is what it sounded like; the window ground a bit when closing it now the door will not open from either side

Sounds like somebody was breaking in. You have to get the door panel off so you can see what is going on in there. If the door is unlocked, maybe a slim jim will catch the handle and get it open. If the window motor is shot, or the gears, try pushing the window down by hand. if not try it with the switch. Get the window down and the door open, pull the panel, get the handles fixed and then the glass. Hope this helps.

Window on driver's side doesn't come down

a metallic grinding sound is probably the noise you hear. this indicates the need for a new (or salvage) window regulator (your window lift mechanism). I usually suggest a dealer part and get a local glass shop or your favorite mechanic to replace. If you've been inside a door panel, this may be your next project.

Pull out window crank and door handle, remove panel, remove plastic Nylon that's between metal and panel, crank the window down enough to see the arm and the part that connects with glass. Make sure the metal part inside the door that comes from an arm and attaches to glass is clean, from broken glass and the gap that attaches to window is clean,bend the new glass to make it fit inside the opening slide down the new glass from the top using opening guides, grave it from both sides standing in between and make land on top center of the part that graves the glass, put automotive glass silicone on center of that part,just at where graves the glass, let dry, put the plastic back the door panel the window crank with the "U" shaped lock washer and the door handle, I hope I was clear

Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!
