Time for a new regulator and cable assembly. The cable pulley in regulator has failed you. very common and no big deal, just look it up on ebay for that door and get a replacement. if i remember right, i paid 60 or 70 for mine, with new motor and cable, and installed in about an hour.

dont attempt to temporarily roll up window. they are heavy, and if the method you choose fails, it will come crashing down in door. you would be safer with plastic taped over window till part arrives, unless you can be sure your method cant fall. mine worked for a few days and luckily when the reworked cable broke it was already down.

Unfortuanately the window has come off the track... happens for various reasons... on my windstar the side rail spot weld broke so the rail/track came off... i had to take the bracket out ... drill out the spot weld and put it back together with a rivet ... put the window back and it's been good since.... basically you will need to take the door panel off to see why it came off the track.

SOURCE: Driver side door lock seems mechanically "stuck"

The panel pops off. There are cheap tools to help with this at your local AutoZone. You may be able to just pull them off, you will need new clips which are just a couple of dollars or else your panels will be loose when you put them on. There maybe a screw or 2 that will be hiding and you will find them as your taking the panel off, start at the bottom. As for your original problem I would say the linkage is binding up some where and needs a bit of grease. Hope this helps. Richard

SOURCE: driver side window is off track and stuck about 75% closed

If your power window motor is not moving up or down at all inside the door panel, you will need a new motor.
If your window is stuck and will not move, it is the motor - it is bad.
If your window falls down into the door panel, the window is off track.
Replacing a window motor is an easy fix, get another one from an auto parts store and replace it.
Good luck!

Drivers side window will not go completely airtight when up.drops and goes up when door opens and shuts, but not high enough to seal correctly


My 02 had this same problem, the glass has shifted position in the mechanism. You will need to take the inner door card off to get at the mechanism, lower the glass about half way then reach through the large opening in the door panel to feel for the large 'cog' shaped retaining bolts that hold the glass to the mechanism (one either side, both facing the outer door skin). A 5mm torx or allen key bit is required to loosen both 'cogs'. You can then adjust the glass position. This is possibly best done with two people...once the glass is loose, make sure you move the glass first to break the seal (it may have stuck to the rubber seal over time, so will not move much), then gently tighten into place, raise the window to the full up position, shut the door fully, then with the help of an assistant, one inside the car one outside, move the glass into the desired place and tighten the cogs. Open the door, fully lower and fully raise the glass, then keep the switch in the up position for 5 seconds, this teaches the ECU the new position. Check that the window closes when you open and close the door, if not, try adjusting the glass angle with the adjustment screws located at the very bottom of the door. When in the right position, you should just be able to pull a sheet of paper past the glass and the seal. Boom, done!

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

Driver side door jammed shut


Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

Cannot open passenger side front door, it seems to be stuck in the closed position. Yes the inside and out-side handles do pull but will not open the door and yes the window will power up and down. ...


The first thing I suggest is call a locksmith or AAA if you have it. tell them whats going on, not a lock issue, Ask if they can get the door open. I doubt it , but you never know. Anyway, the latch is dead, as you know, The problem is you will have to remove the seat to get the door panel off to replace or fix the latch mechanism. If your up to it let me know and I can help you threw it.

The locking mechanism in my door is stuck in the closed position. that little "c" hook isnt moving at all, and my door will not fully close. is there a release latch somewhere?


Open the car door and pull on the release latch that you use to open the car door from the inside to get out. At the same time use a screwdriver to push up the latch on the side of the door. Sometimes the seatbelt gets caught on the door when you close it causing the latch on the side to close prematurely.
