96 Astro driver window stopped mid way

Driver window stuck mid way, other power windows ok. Second multi switch installed, Mechanic said wasn't switch, moved some wires and started working. Can I pull the door panel and expose the wires to the window motor and use a jumper wire from the passenger switch to either of the 2 wires on the driver window to make it go up?

Ok...I have a 2000 chevy s10 with power windows. The driver side window will go down halfway and then stop. The same as going up. The switch is good, I replaced it. What would cause this?


My Buick Le saber did this and what my problem was the window track was corroded and full of dirt causing the window to bind in the track. My mechanic took it apart and put a new track in and it works now. It does not come cheap to have a mechanic do it.

Honda accord power window control from Driver panel stopped working, each door still ha scontrol of power windows also setting lock function from remote works but horn wil not honk after second...


drivers switch panel serves as the brain for all windows in vehicle, and if the other windows work from thier switch then the main switch is most likly good, look inside the door for the motor, and apply power and ground to it, if it works, then its the wires to the motor, and if not then replace the motor.(cold affects these motors really bad, as the grease gets thicker with cold and puts stress on the motor, and can burn it out.if everything there is ok, then the electronic part of that switch is lost and will require a new one.

1995 Astro Van electric windows no power Is there


The problem will either be a faulty master window switch on the driver door, or a broken wire at the master window switch, or most likely the problem will be a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and most likely it will be inside of the weather boot for the driver side door. If there is power going through the master window switch then look for a broken wire.

Here are two typical GM power window wiring diagrams to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Windo motors wont work


The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.

Windows have stopped working


First check the fuses if you have not done so. You will need to remove the door panel to get to the driver side window switch, the power for all of the windows enters through the driver side switch. Use a multi meter to determine if power is reaching the switch, if it is not, run a temporary wire from the fuse panel to the switch and see if that will work the windows. If it now works you know the problem is a bad wire. If you are getting power to the switch but not power out the other side you know the switch is bad and must be replaced.

2005 chevy impala rear driver power window stopped going up.stuck


If neither switch works it is a bad connection at the motor or bad ground or a bad motor. Remove the door panel unplug the motor push the switch and see if there is 12volts on the wires if there is the motor is bad There are small brushes in the motor that go bad tap on the motor while pushing the switch if it works that way replace it

Rear window stuck-Convertable


does the window try to move, meaning it is stuck in its track, or does the motor not try to move the window? If the latter then look at the rocker switch on your center console that controls the rear windows. I had to replace my switches to get my rear windows working.
