Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The window goes down but seems like there is no power to make the window go up. Can not pull window up by hand and is going to start raining tomorrow. Can I jump or swap out the wires just to get it to go up until I can afford to take it in. If so what color it the right one. Drivers side has three wires and the passenger side has four as far as I can see. I care for the elderly and take them to doctors appointments. Help.
Your best shot at an easy fix is to find the broken fourth wire for that rear door, and be able to splice it back together in the door opening, without having to pull the door panel off to get to that or to everything else that could be accessed. Yes, the motor could be jumped from a battery set nearby, but to do so, the door panel has to be removed.
I think there should be four wires to that door. I can think of no logical reason to have four on one rear door and three on the other. Pull all the protective covers away from the wires to look at them closely for a broken wire or broken end of a wire. Good luck. If it rains, you may have to use the plastic sheet over door trick.

Sounds like your gears are striped out inside the motor. I had the same problem on a car of mine. I just went to a parts store and bought the gear and took the motor apart and fixed it myself. It cost 18 dollars with tax.

You might have a circuit breaker getting weak in that circuit, as some manufacturers incorporate that, and it resets itself when key turned off. That might explain why inches after key turned off & on. Does your manual, or fuse panel have anything labeled as circuit breaker? Have a listen under dash on both sides of vehicle, and down near kick panels by feet area while someone tries window for you, and see if you can by chance hear circuit breaker trip (click) . Actually, get them to jog it down & it may be easier to hear & locate.

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.
