Question about 2003 Dodge Stratus
I have a 2003 Stratus that the left rear power window will not work. I looked in the door and it looks like the cable came out of a bracket on the top. Does the regulator need replaced or can the cable be snapped back in? How hard is it to replace the regulator? Any drawings available on-line?
Most of the time the regulator has to be replaced. if you take the door apart and take a good look at the regulator you will probably find a broken guide or fraid cable... something broken to make the cable jump off. (you may get lucky and be able to fix the old regulator...but in all the years i've been doing these i've only seen one that i was able to fix and not have to replace the regulator) Sorry I don't have a good pic of this regulator you can check with the dealer or local glass shop for an aftermarket or www.directauto.com
hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Passenger door module (PDM)
Body control module (BCM)
LR power window switch
RR power window switch
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
Window lockout switch
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)
The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.
