I can open and close the driver's side window without any problem.

The first thing i would check is the master window switch, on the drivers door, the window lock circuit locks out the operation of the other three windows. the intermittent operation of the windows suggests a possible loose connection or contact.

hi it sounds like your controller is shorting out and burning the electrics, this can be quite bad as it doesnt always blow fuses and can cause car fires. An auto electrician would be able to fix quite easily or if you want to get a part from wreckers you will have to remove the door skin and everything should just unplug.

Hi! You may want to start spraying contact cleaners on the control switches. If these switches are seldomly used this issues happens. Try it and see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Driver door on a subaru forester 2003. window will not go up or down. window is still in the track and the motor is still working


Could be a bad regulator or a bad guide rail pinning the window

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you should be able to see what's restricting the window from moving

Driver's side window will not open or close automaticaly. Has to be pulled up and down by hand


Check the wiring and connectors supplying the driver-side window motor and also the fuses in case each window is fused seperately. The electric motor may have failed. When you operate the switch do you hear the motor working?

Driver's Side Window Won't Stay Up


As mentioned here, this worked for me on a 55 reg:

Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Then follow the calibrate instructions that can be found under "Windows" in the owner's manual. Took less than 5 minutes in all to fix.

My 2003 Forester driver side window wont work.


You need power window regulator as the cable of the regulator is out its place ,

  1. Remove the gusset cover.
  2. Pull up the inner door handle cover toward you to remove the upper hook. Pull down it to remove the lower hook. Remove the inner door handle cover.
  3. Remove the power window switch assembly.
  4. Using a trim panel remover, remove the clips of the trim panel.
  5. Remove the speaker.
  6. Using a spatula, remove the door sealer.
  7. Remove the outer mirror assembly.
  8. Remove the front end of the door weatherstrip and gusset.
  9. Remove the stabilizers.
  10. Remove the rear end of the door weatherstrip (inner and outer).
  11. Operate the power windows switch so the bolts from the regular assembly are visible through the service holes. Remove the mounting nuts.
  12. Take out the door glass. CAUTIONDo not turn the regulator in closing direction after removal of the glass. Otherwise gear may be disengaged.
  13. Loosen the nuts to remove the rear sash.
  14. Disconnect the power window motor wiring harness.
  15. Loosen the four bolts and two nuts to pull out the regulator assembly.
  16. Remove the screws to remove the motor from the regulator assembly.
  17. Installation is the reverse order of removal.0759a6d.jpg23cb1e4.jpg
