Driver side power window does not work

I have noticed earlier that it took longer to "power down" my driver side window compared to the passenger side. it was slower going up or closing. today when i opened/lowered my driver side window i could not close it back up. i did manage to close it by pushing power switch up at intervals (where window moved about an inch every time).

what could be the problem?

I had the same problem and found the the plastic clip that holds the window to the guide rails that guid the window up and down was broken. The solution is the window regulator assembly has to be replaced. The cheepest place to find replacement is the salvage yards. Older models will work but some have to be dissemble and make 1 unit out or 2. Another thing that happens is the cables that runs in the tracks get rusted and binds a little, Remove the door panel and lubicate the tracks that the cable travel in, I hope that this will help

I would say window motor is getting weak. its the one that gets used the most. you could try to get some lubercant like wd40 in the tracks might make it move easer. but eventualy the motor will have to be replaced

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

03 Chevy Venture....Clarification Passenger Window stuck down.


It will be in the switch lift up the controls on both the drivers side and passenger side the wires going into the connection wiggle then and the button at the same time if you get any movement then you have a broken wire if not use a test light hook one wire to some metal and the other to the wires if their is any power the light will come on, if no light then you probably have a broken wire. The passenger side power comes from the drivers side control. When you open the doors you will see a large black set of wiring harness in the door going into the side under the dash that is the wiring harness for all the power windows and door locks, open it and test those wires for power.

Power Windows


Have you tried spraying silicone on both side tracks? Otherwise, the window motor may just be going away.

THE POWER WINDOWS ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE OF MY 99 EUROVAN CAMPER DO NOT OPERATE. THE WINDOW ON PASSENGER SIDE OPERATES NORMALLY FROM PASSENGER SIDE, BUT WILL ONLY GO DOWN WHEN ATTEMPT MADE TO OPERATE IT FROM...


This is essentially correct. A common problem with earlier models of Eurovans is the wiring through the door boot. Check this first as the wires tend to become brittle and break. This can save you alot of hassle in getting the door panel off and inspecting the motor mechanism. A good sign is if when you press the window switch you hear a little "click" in the right front of the dash. That is the window relay engaging. Power is getting to that point in the circuit but can't make it back through to the door.

Passenger side power window suddenly quit working. Window is in "up" position, but will not work from either the driver control switch, nor the passenger control switch.


I had the same problem with my driver side window, so I just replaced the power window motor. It took less than an hour, cost about $35 or $40 and it works perfectly now.

1994 Jeep Cherokee Power Window Problem


When you open the drivers door you can see a wiring harness between the door and the body of the car.
You more than likely have wires broken in there.
