SOURCE: power window problem

I just came from Mechanic with the same issue (almost), in my case the I have Mazda MPV 2000, with the driver side window regulator issue. I just have to push the window a bit to make it up and down, seems like the window gets stuck somewhere. My mechanic advised me that the whole assemble 'window regulator' needs a change (of course which I do not understand unless he opens the door panel infront of me and satisfies me). He mentioned one of the wire cable got broken so I need to buy the window regulator which includes the motor and the frame on which the window gets seated.
I understand its a bit awkward but I will keep you posted for any further result.

SOURCE: replacing 99 Accord window regulator

Pull off door panel speaker and switches. lower the window to where you see the two or four 10millimeter that connect scissor mechanism to the window. Prop window all the way up and put a door stopper to prevent the window from falling down. Unbolt window motor, unplug window motor, and unbolt eveything else in the door. Pull it all down and out through the bottom largest whole, lay flat on ground the entire indoor mechanism, out where you can see it on the floor. Take a pic with camera, and proceed to swapping regulator, intallation is same as removal. Good Luck

SOURCE: 94 camary Le passenger power window not working

Check for a broken wire, its possible that its a broken wire either a hot wire or ground wire. Check inside the rubber loom that runs between the door an door jam, try wiggling it around wile you try the switch for the window. It might have a wire for the up and one for the down, chk. that loom, thats the door that gets used the most opening and closing a lot could have broken a wire in there. I can't really tell you where to get a diagram other than maybe a web site of the major auto parts stores.

SOURCE: Mazda MPV: how to raise power window manually?

I just had this problem with my driver door window. I took the door panel off and discovered that the motor was burnt out by testing with a meter.

I called around and found a motor at a junkyard for $135 dollars! I didn't bother looking at the price for a new one yet. Budget is very tight right now.

Like you I just wanted a way to get the window up until I could get around to replacing the part.

You can find out what I did with pictures here.

This is for the front driver side window. I did the same for the rear passenger side window and the steps are fairly similar.

There are few less steps to getting the panel off, but it was a little trickier to get the panel back on. (The key was to pull the bottom out and start at the front: Lower the forward part of the panel over the top of the frame first - while pushing firmly at the top of the panel).

The steps for disengaging the motor and raising the window with the motor re-engaged are almost the same. The only differences are that the motor is in a different position in the frame. It's down near the bottom of the frame - and seemingly inaccessible at first glance.

However, if you disconnect the motor from the frame and let it dangle on the regulator wires, you can pull it all the way through to the other port in the frame. That way, it turns out that, it was even easier to work with than the driver window motor.

Hope this helps.

My 2001 f350 crew cab developed an issue with the power windows. It first started with the rear windows only rolling down and not up unless i used the master switch. Now one does not work at all from its...

I would remove all door panels

Unplug & test each window motor,
powered directly to the battery, in
both directions

That way you know if all the motors work,
if all regulators work

You say you believe the motors & switches are good

No you don't & you should have tested them before you told us

Now for the switches--you will need wiring diagrams, regardless
of whether you do live voltage drop testing or ohm the switches
out of the circuits (unplugged)

You need battery voltage to all your power points at the switches

You need-- when all that is done & your still at a lose for no reason
you can think of,have to look at scan tool data in enhanced mode
& check for GEM Module Codes & more (all the motors & windows
& switches are working properly-- powered direct from the battery-
basically problem solved)

Until you have all motors,all regulators & all switches working,
by power you bring (yes) on two long wires from the battery,
you can not fault the GEM ( body module) the windows are
controlled by

Driver window donot go up or down

Check all fuses first then pull switch and test for power at window switch. If power getting to switch, test wires going to window motor. 2 wires to motor, and depending on what way switch is pushed determines which wire will have power. Switch just reverses polarity to raise and lower, so one or the other wire should show 12 volt DC power when switch pushed. If power going to motor, double check you have good ground as well, and if so, motor is shot. You can also double check motor by connecting wires from motor to a 12-14volt cordless drill battery.

How to manually roll up an automatic window on a 96 pontiac sunfire??

If the window has screws or bolts holding it to the regulator track, take them off, push window up, then wedge something against the glass to hold it up.
Since you have the door panel off, can test the motor by jumper wires or cables from a battery set nearby. Just hook jumper wires from battery to motor terminals, if nothing happens reverse the leads on the battery, if still nothing motor is bad.
Reversing polarity to the motor is how the switch can make it go up or down, with only two wires to the motor. I mean, if hot wire to motor on one wire, the other wire carries the power to ground. When you push switch the other way, the wire that was putting power to the motor is now carrying that power to ground through the switch. That's why you can reverse the battery jumper leads to the motor to check both up and down operation.
Hope I haven't confused you. Post back for more (?confusion?).lol.

1989 chev celebrity window went down need to get back up how do I bypass / jump switch

take off the interior door panel and locate the window motor. if it is the drivers front window it has two wires going to it. One is a brown wire the other is Dark Blue. Provide battery pos to one wire and battery ground to the other. If window motor does not go up switch the jumper wires to reverse the window motor.

2000 elantra driver side front window will not go down

take your door cover off, give the window motor direct current(run 2 wires from your battery) to the harness prongs. switch the wires to prongs to make it go either up or down. If the window goes down you have a faulty window switch, if it does nothing, but get hot. you need to replace your window motor, some window motors come with new regulators too.

My rear window will not go down from either inside switch or key on outside. What can I do?

You must remove the panel from the inside of the rear door and apply voltage with a jumper (+) wire from a 12 volt car battery which needs to be grounded with a jumper cable to the frame of the truck, since the window is probably stuck down it will be difficult to get acces to the switch's positive wire to unplug and apply voltage to it but if you can reach it and touch the hot wire to the window motor's positive wire you will be able to get the window up in order to work on and perhaps replace the switch, be careful not to get your hand caught in the mechanism when contacting the pos. motor wire or switch wire with power, as a matter of fact if you can use and aligator clip on the end of the jumper wire and attach that first to the positive switch wire or motor wire then connect to the battery that would eliminate the risk of catching a hand in the window mechanism, just wear safety glasses when making a spark near the battery when contacting the positive wire.

good luck

Window will go down, but not up.

If the window goes down, that says the motor is good. Being a DC motor it will run either direction. The window switch reverses the polarity. You can remove the door panel to get to the window motor connector and determine which wire is live in the down position of the switch. There is only 2 wires at the window motor. After you find out which wire is live for "down", using a 12v battery reverse the polarity by connecting a piece of wire from the battery positive to the window motor terminal that was NOT live in the "down" switch position before. And connect a piece of wire from the battery negative to the window motor terminal that WAS live in the "down" switch position before and the window will go up. Now being positive that the problem in not the motor. You will have to back track to the switches to determine what switch is the cause. Hope this helps. Good luck.
