Manual Window won't roll down

I tried to open my driver side window (Manual), but the only thing that turned was the handle. What could have happened and how can I fix this?

SOURCE: 2000 dodge durango driver side window problem

durangos have many problems with the windows motors and regulators, I know for personal experience , because I have one, ...when you try rolling the windows down do you hear any noise coming from inside the door..if so.. the cable is busted ..you will need the windows regulator, if no, is probably the motor..you will have to check for power and ground right at the motor connector...if power and ground are present, then you need a motor ....in mine ,I pull the motor and cleaned , and they have been fine for more than a year, I starter with one and them had to do the same to all of them..hope this help

SOURCE: drivers side door handle does not work

The linkage needs to be re attached. Probably just a clip but it can be bought at a wrecking yard/auto dismantler. try a self serve auto wrecker so you can experiment with an olds door and see. Just remove the door panel and it is an easy fix. The handle could also be broken on the inside where you cannot see it. A lot of the older cars have fatigued pot metal inside door handles

How do I get my drivers door open...I have tried the key and electric locks but drivers door will not open


It appears to me that the door hinge bushings have worn out , do not force the inner or outer door handles. Lower the window and use the top part of the window frame to left up on the door to release the weight on the door latch and try to open it. If this allows the door to open your hinge bushing are worn out and allowing the door to sag putting it's weight on the door latch. This is common on drivers doors because of being the most used.

Mazda 6 passenger window won't go up!!!


It sounds like it could be the window solenoid, or the window motor. It's unlikely the switches on both doors are bad. Check the solenoids and motors...

The driver side window in my 1988 ford ranger will not roll down. Its manual. What's the problem and how should I fix it???


Remove the clips in the inside of the window handle,also clips on door handle.Look for any screws holding the door panel on, then take a screwdriver and pry the door panel away from the door. re install the window handle,and try rolling the window down. You will probably see what is stopping it. If it looks like the window regulator is worn out, check the local junk yards for a replacement.

Got kids? VW electric convertible top - I found dried milk in the switch had same problem on turn on convertible opened and would not close, would have to use manaul bypass foldup. Pull window controller spray with a electrical cleaner then try it. If not dirty the switch is bad. May be in driver door switch or on rear door? Good luck.

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.

My driver's side window will now roll up how do I fix it?


you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.Sounds like the linkages, or the gears of the regulator are done

Jaguar XK8 Window Problem


Same thing has happened on mine!
The solution is to reprogram the window limits. You need to sit in the car with doors shut! Turn the key in ignition in position I or II, roll down the window all the way and keep holding the switch for 5 seconds, then roll the window up and again keep the switch pressed for 5 seconds, repeat same steps for other door.
Reprogramming is also described in the owners manual. I don't know how mine became deprogrammed, should only happen if the battery is disconnected!

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window


The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.
