Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Electric window has stopped rolling up

Window was acting iffy. Would roll down, but had started to hesitate occasionally when rolling it up. Now it is stuck about 2/3 of the way up. We tapped the down button and it appears to still want to go that direction, but are afraid to try and toll it down and start over for fear it will be stuck completely unrolled. Help!

To get up pull on window with your hand while using switch in up position. if window is cocking to the side it is a bad window regulator. if it is just slow and then stopping probably a bad motor. it is harder to go up than down and this causes more pull on motor as it goes bad it will cause the breaker to heat up and trip so if you wait a few minutes you will see it tries to go up again.one quick way to check if motor is trying to work is to cut key on and watch your dome light when you work switch if it dims a little when you hit up button you know power is going to it. if not then possible switch problem.work you passenger window and look at light so you will see what i mean.

Remove the inner door panel and check and make sure the electrical connection is tight on the window motor.

Honda element no power to either window


Since you have power, once in a while, the fuse must be good. Sounds more like a faulty ground connection. Check all body ground connections on the doors and under dash. Therein lies your problem. When something electrical goes south on me, I ALWAYS check grounds FIRST. That's normally always the answer.

My passenger window will not roll down when cold but i the rest of my windows do roll down


Does it roll down when warm. If yes then you might have a faulty up down switch. If the window has stopped rolling down all the time it could be the switch or the window motor.

Probably a bad window switch on your driver's door panel. Replace it and you should be fine.

I would suspect the window switch on the door. Sounds like the down switch part off the switch may not be working. Before replacing the switch I would get some spray that is made to clean electrical contacts. Should have it at any auto parts store or even radio shack. Spray the electrical contacts on the switch and clean it up real good and see how it does.

The rear door driver side window on the Lexus ES300 will not open. The other windows are operating well.


I replace glass in cars for a living and I see this often. I also own an 02 ES300 which had the same problem. It's usually from lack of use that a rear doorglass stops working. The electric motor gets some corrosion in it and stops working. I repeatedly slapped the interior door panel while activating the switch that rolls the glass up or down. After about 5-10 minutes of this it started to work. If you get lucky like I did, make sure you roll the window up and down multiple times if you get it to work. Then remember to occasionally roll all the other windows up and down a few times every week or so to keep this from happening again. Good luck!

Battery Disconnect Window Reset Procedure: Roll window all the way down ( in first position), then roll window all the way up. When you reach the top, press and hold the switch down for 3-5 seconds. Roll window all the way down (again), press and hold the switch down for 3-5 seconds. The window should roll up and down normally. Repeat the same steps for ALL the window switches.

Driver's window


I have the same problem, its more than likely a sticking motor. I just punch the door panel below the window switch (where the motor is) and it works. You may have to bang it a few times but i have to do it about once a week on the front right or my car.
