Rear window won't roll up/down

My rear driver's window won't roll up/down, however the motor is still working as you can hear it try to roll it down? Could something have broke or it is just the cold weather? It is about 28 degrees outside?

I had the same problem. When I took the panel off and unbolted the motor the cables were frayed and not lined up --wound up correcly on the pully wheel attached to the motor. There are two cables --one the rolls up window and other rolls down.
I'm hoping I can just get the cables replaced and that I don't have to replace the whole unit/assembly.
Be forewarned that some assembly and technical skills may be required ...if you are a "do it yourself" type of person it can be fixed but will take a lot time and patience--and may be worth saving yourself a few hundread bucks the dealer is sure to charge. I still have not purchased the replacement part so don't know what to expect. I manually pulled the window up an placed in wooden trim piece to keep window up until I fix it.

It may be froze due to the weather. Try rolling it down after driving it a while with the heat on high, and if it still doesn't work, and you can still hear the motor working, that means that the window track assembly or the cables operating the track assembly have become inoperitive. You will need to remove the door panel to diagnose further.
Hope this helps!

Drivers side window wont roll up or down


If you can hear the motor when you try to operate the window then it'll be a problem with your window regulator (the mechanism that moves the window up an down), if you can't hear the motor then It's more likely to be a fault with the motor as you said it wouldn't work with the central locking. This means your car has a total closure system, ie you press a button and all windows and sunroof close. These systems are usually seperate wiring from the switched circuit used to operate the windows from inside the car, so, if the windows don't work on either circuit then the one thing they do have in common is the motor.

Ford expedition drivers side window won't roll up


well windows are usually pretty simple. It could be the window switch, the regulator bound up, or the motor itself went out. try jiggling the switch, actuate the switch over and over..see if you get any movement. sometimes smacking the side panel will jolt the motor. If that doesn't work i usually take off the door panel, try supplying the motor power, if that works that tells me the switch is bad. if the motor doesnt do anything even with 12volts supplied, then that tells us the motor is bad. if you hear the motor work but its grinding and nothing happens, the regulator is bad. Let me know if you have questions, i can help you further

Sounds like you need a window motor. Try hitting in center of door trim panel to see if you can get it to work if so replace motor.

Rear driver side window won't roll down on 2003 lexus es300


I had the same issue with the passenger side rear window. I took the panel off (one screw under the window switch and one screw located behind the door handle. There is a small black cover over the screw.) I then took the motor off of the door and track system. After the track was off, I plugged the motor back into the wiring harness and tried the switch. Mine actually worked and the gear spun, if not, it will be a pricey window motor about $150-$250 depending on where you get it. Good luck! Sean

Cannot get the rear driver window to roll down


no there is no fuse for just that rear window they all share a common fuse..if it will not work from drivers master switch or the rear switch on the dor then you will need to remove the door panel and test the elcetrical connector at the window motor.. just remember to have the rear switch plugged in when checking for power and ground at the window motor connector..
