there should be a sensor on the door handel, so the minute you start pulling the body controll module drops the window through the regulator. an actuator unlocks and locks the door.

SOURCE: The partial glass drop function on my 2003 996 cab

hello there
Do you hear any funny noises when you try to roll the window down or up? If yes you will need to replace the window regulator.Here is part number
996 624 102 06
If the window rools up and down without any noise the regulator might be ok and you will need a micro switch for the door handle ,which controls the upper movement of the window.
part number
996 613 125 00
Of course the best is yo look behind the door panel and see....
i hope this will help you

2008 pontiac g6 drivers window, when handle is lifted the window does not drop the inch or so that it should.

The window indexing feature is used to lower the driver and passenger power windows approximately 4 mm when the door is opened. This is necessary to allow the top edge of the window to clear the window weather-strip. This feature will also raise the window to the fully seated position once the door is closed.
Is just the driver door not working ?
Observe the operation of the driver window and front passenger window while opening and closing their respective doors. The windows should index DOWN and UP when the doors are opened and closed.
? If either window does not index UP or DOWN, refer to Window Index Feature Malfunction.

Window Index Feature Malfunction
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw and Door Ajar Switch parameters while opening and closing the driver and passenger doors, the parameter should change from Door Closed to Door Ajar.
? If the parameter does not change when opening and closing the doors, refer to Door Ajar Indicator Malfunction .
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate window motor.
Ignition ON, with the door closed, test for greater than 10 volts between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
With the door open, test for less than 1 volt between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
If all circuits test normal, replace the window motor.

Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop (GM dealer )

2003 ford f-150 crew cab power window went down but will not come up i hear a clicking noise in fuse panel

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

The driver door power window is not working. How do I repair this?

Open door panel and check window motor connection. You will probably have to replace window motor. You could try checking fuses, but if the passenger's side is working then that is not the problem.

Porsche 2002 carerra cab driver side window does not go down

Obvious stuff. The key has to be in the ON position. Fuses should be located on left side near kick panel it might be third row all the way left side, 30 amp fuse. Will the window operate if you open the door a little? Maybe getting stuck in door seal. Top up or down it won't work?
After that you have to get in to the door and see if motor still good or if wiring is good.

2003 F-150 4X4 with extended cab: while driving, the engine sputters at about 45-55 mph. It acts as if the fuel/air mix is not right? Also, the power window on the passenger side will not roll up.

here is a trick to get the window back up. open the door with the key on. hold the switch in the up position and slam the door shut while holding the switch inthe up position this should jar the motor enough to get the window up. but you are going to need a new window motor eventually if this trick works for you
Please rate me
Thank you
