Did if ever raise slower than other windows in the car?, shown any sign of weakness before?

You may not hear anything if the motor in the door is weak. Take a pair of needlenose pliers and wrap a strip of electrical, or masking, tape around the tips. Then see if you can get a grip of the top of the window while hitting the "up" switch.

If this works, then you need a new door window regulator.

Driver window will not come up. power window driver side not working pass. works fine


The drivers side is the master, which you probably already know. It has to be related to the motor, switch or wiring in that door. Check and make sure that your fuses are all good, then check to see if you have power to the switch, then power from the switch, if so then check the motor, check for power going to the motor, if it is there and still not working then it is the motor, likewise with the switch, if power is going to the switch but not leaving, then the switch is bad. No power at the switch is a bad fuse or wiring to the switch.

04 taurus Power Windows, passanger side goes down, not up, new mo


It is most likely the switch itself. since the down works that means that there is power going to the switch. So, the up position switch is probably worn out.

97 Accord drivers side window won't go up or down....


Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.

Windows wont go down or up


Check the switches for a clicking sound if you hear a clicking sound then the switches are fine. Does the driver side switch work for the windows? Check it for the click sound. Make sure it isnt a blown fuse. If you have replaced the fuse and you dont hear clicking sound it might be the switches and you can find them at a junk yard. If you have tried all these things and it still doesnt work you might need new window regulators and/or window motors or it might be a wiring problem.

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.

Driver side window down and won't come up??


When you push the button to raise the window, do you hear it humming or clicking, or is it dead silent? If it's silent, the motor isn't even trying to raise the window. That's either a blown fuse, a dead window regulator, or a dead window switch. If you hear it clicking or making noises, but not coming up, it's either the regulator is messed up (but not dead), or the window has come off it's guide tracks and can't raise up.
