Driver's side window not working properly

My drivers side electric window will go down easily but when I try and put the window back up I have to play with the switch a bit in order to inch it up. Once I gets window about 3 inches or so from being closed it goes up with no problems. I'm not sure if this is a switch issue or a window motor issue. Thank you in advance for you assistance.

The system is called the window regulator; your likely trouble is with the drive motor in the regulator assembly or the linkage and window tracks inside the door are tired.

It sounds more like a motor issue and it goes up easily when almost at top because its not working the motor as hard as when it is lower

SOURCE: passenger electric window

Hi Ethel101
I think that what has happened with your vehicle, is that the master (driver control) switch has become defective....If you have a friend who is good with electronics you may be able to ask for help in getting it fixed....otherwise a new unit is needed.

Best regards

  3. The motor had shifted positions.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2002 Honda Passport, drivers side window goes down but not up??

It would be a switch. Try pushing the switch down hard and wiggling it. It may work which would indicat a switch. Since one direction works It has to be the switch ,

Driver's side window switch does not work, but driver's side swithc for passenger window does


It sound like you have a lot of electrical harness problems as well as maybe a defective switch. Lamps can be out on the dash board- often times older vehicles have a bunch of lamps you can reach back and replace the laps with new ones. A mechanic who does electrical work is best to deal with this- do go to a dealer but a guy who does side jobs but has a good reputation and charges less. With al kinds of dealers shutting down there has to be someone around you to do this. I would start by checking with the Thumbtack website for a person who services cars in your area. I am on there for tape deck myself.

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

Driver front window and passenger rear window do not operate. Also, the clock has stopped working. Can these be a related electrical issue or just coincedence?


Check for blown fuses first. In a Chrysler they are mini fuses, and they are clearly marked on the driver's side access panel at the end of the dash board when you open the driver's side door. It is a "D" shaped panel that pops right off. The layout is inside of that panel. Also, a relay might govern the windows proper, since they generate alot of ohms when operating. That is a mechanic's job at that point, but try the fuses first.

I have a 2004 Cadillac CTS and after changing my battery the driver side windows won't go down. the whole electrical on the driver doors isn't working. what do i need to do?


First check your fuses (Manual should have that location for the window fuses). Also do the other windows go down on the other side with the switch on the drivers door? And what else doesn't work ( Mirrors, Locks )?

The electric window doesn't work on the drivers control panel for the drivers window, although all other windows work properly from that control. What is the problem and can I replace that automated unit...


Yaser
I happens to me either 4 yrs back and it reoccured now, the problems lies in the contact points of the relay in the control panel on the driver`s side as it is getting dust residues as years goes thus, preventing a good contact , you need to move the panel and get access to the panel Printed Circuit board clean it with air and WD40 but it may reoccur in 3-5yrs depending on where you are living but i reccomend to replace the relay switch for the driver`s window . when you disassemble the windows child lock look carefully to the position of micro pin inside the groove before disassemble it,so you can put it back as it was fixed otherwise you won`t be able to enable the child lock

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.
