Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Driver side power window only moves up a little bit at a time

The window goes down however when I try to raise the window it only moves up slightly each time I push the button. After a while I can get the window all the way up. Is this the motor a relay or some other electrical problem. The other 3 windows work fine.

    I took my vehicle to a shop I could trust and had the motor replaced.

    Thank you very much

Yes there is a problem with ur window motor. You should have an auto electrician to check it out. There are alot of things that can wrong with the motor though. If u want, u can remove the motor and connect it directly to the battery and observe how it operates. If it operates the saem way when winding up, it might need repairing or replacing

Electrical problems?


Reads like it is a problem for an auto electrician or someone with access to the vehicles wiring diagram - presumably at some point two circuits are crossing. More likely if it is a modern car, it maybe a bit of computerised hardware that needs a fix or replacement.

How to install driver side window regulator


1. Take door panel off by prying off with srew driver moldings for outside mirror,around lock,and door handle, then pry up counsel for power locks, windows, and mirror adjustment and disconnect plugs. Remove three screws located behind arm rest handle, inside where counsel was removed, and bottom middle of door panel. Lift panel and pull slighlty towards you. Disconnect courtesy light, and wire to speaker. This may sound like alot but it goes pretty fast. 2. Peel away plastic and loosen window glass clamps (explaination from above, which are accessable when window is in up position). 3. Disconnect wire to motor, and remove 6 bolts holding guide rails and motor. Lift rails slightly to release from little hangers, which come in handy when putting new one in. 4. You should be able to remove entire window regulator at this point. Surprisingly the window stayed in up position when regulator was removed. 5. Before installing new regulator loosen window glass clamps. Install new by first setting guides in place by using the little hangers. Bolt guides and motor, temporarily connect power window switch and carefully raise window regulator until clamps are resting in place under window glass, tighten clamps. Test before putting panel back on.

Power Window Issue


Not sure if you tried this already but it may help. There is a way to reset the windows. I do this every so often when mine won't close all the way.

Close the doors. Roll the windows all the way down. Then pull the button to roll them up and once they go up hold the button up for a few seconds (5 secs?) and they should go up a little bit. Do this for each side.

I do this every time I sense too much wind noise when driving.

Rear window slipping down about 1 inch, but still on the track.


The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.

Hey Ford 4 Life!

Sounds like either the glass has separated from the bottom edge mounting frame and has slipped down into the door independent of the mechanism, or the bottom edge mounting frame has disattached from the rest of the lift mechanism.

Try this: Power the window mechanism to the full down position. Then try and retrieve the glass from within the door, and by hand move the glass within the guide grooves to the fully raised position. Now whileholding the glass in that position power the lift mechanism up all the way. If it catches properly, this will hold the window closed.

But to really fix the problem will involve removing the door panel to gain access (limited though it be) to the glass, mounting frame and lift mechanism. This area is a little tricky, but most auto glass shops can fix this easily (and cheaply!) as they have the tools and the expertise...

Hope this is a hlp and good luck!
Let us know how it goes...
