Question about 2002 Chevrolet Prizm

Open Question

Power Window goes up one inch or so then stops. Wait 10 mins and can get it to raise one more inch and so on.

Front Left Power Window goes up one inch then stops. Wait 10 mins it will go up one more inch and so on. Doesn't seem to be binding - I'm thinking the problem may be more electrical than mechanical. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Passenger side window regulator

either it is misaligned ... the trim is gummed up ... or most likely the switches and or the harnesses to them or any of the 5 or so other connectors and 40 feet of wire between them has corroded loose or burn't terminals. A very common problem, that very few people can correct (even many mechanics) .... A voltage check would be in order at the switches (9V to 14.5V and reverses polarity depending on direction the switch is switched) and or at the motor (it could be any of those things as they all form a loop through all the wires and all switches when you operate the windows) ... it's a bit complicated for most to find or diagnose ... an automobile electric specialist would be your best bet .... unless you know your stuff and have multimeters, schematics and such.

SOURCE: '02 Cavalier Z24 driver side window stops while rolling up

thats real tough to say, if you hear the motor trying but it wont budge than i could say possibly a bent regulator, but if you press the switch and hear nothing i would say possible a weak motor, or you might just have a combination of two, those are rivited in and ideal to get both regulator and motor in one piece because the motor itself is a pain in the ***, good luck

Look at the edges of your window there are guides that snap together and stay inside the window tracts.these plastic guides do break,it easy to fix go to your dealer get to part.they cost about $2.00 let the window down enough to place the butterfly onto the window take plyers press and snap the piece together,take the window and push it hard into the tract and your done.

SOURCE: Both power window on my APV work intermittent.

No, it is the internal circuit breaker in the window motor that is the problem. You need a new window motor.

try this to rest the windows

Lower the window all the way manually.
Then manually raise the window for about 2-3 secs and stop.
Then manually raise the window all the way to the top and stop.
Then manually raise the window (actually just hold the button up as the window can't raise further) for 2-3 secs.

I have a 1996 toyota 4runner with power rear window. The window goes down and up fine but after you put it up then it goes back down one inch by itself -- any ideas ??


I had similar problem on my 98 4runner it would even go all the way down on its own . I removed the rear panels controller mount, unplugged all the harnesses at the controller to cleanly remove the upholster panel and the steel panel so I could plug the controller harnesses back in to trouble shoot it without having panels hanging and dangling. I actually had to drill a rivet on controller mount.

I removed the front panel switch from the circuit. You can reach in under by the emergency brake handle and pop the switch assembly out the unplug the switch. I used my 12 volt battery from my RV and applied 12 volts directly to the motor (Pos to red, minus to green) to raise it all the way up, this did not cure the problem for me so I put the up/down switch back in the circuit.

Next I had to unplug the harnesses again and raise the window again with the RV battery. With window raised all the way you can reach the plug to unplug the key switch and remove it from the circuit. This fixed it for me so I left the key switch on rear tailgate unplugged and it now works fine with just the front panel switch.

Hope this helps

RR power window intermitantly works


You either have excessive dirt in the rubber channels that are slowing the window down, or, you have a bad window motor. Try spraying some 100% silicone spray into the tracks, beside the window, and raise/lower it. If that does not work, the positive coeffcient thermister in the motor is bad; ie replace the motor.

Passenger window on 94 lumina van


If all the other windows work when the passenger window won't move (during the 5 min period), then the passenger side motor is bad. If the motor pulls too much amperage, the circuit breaker that is built into the motor will trip, until it cools down.
