SOURCE: My 2003 Forester driver side window wont work.

This is something that is definitely worth it to leave to a professional. What would be worth it to do is to take the door apart yourself if you can and do want to do so and determine if the motor is indeed dead. There are a few screws and bolts that hold the plastic inner door shell in place and a lot of them are hidden but not that hard to find once you start looking. You can try word searches for your specific vehicle and some sites might go into specific detail as to where the screws/bolts are located. Once you have the inner door shell off everything should be easy to locate. Using a test light purchased from almost any parts place, test probe each electrical connector going to the window switches as well as the window motor. If the light comes on then you are getting power to the motor or the switch but the motor/switch itself is not working. If the light does not come on then you have a problem originating elsewhere. Make sure and test the light out elsewhere first to make sure it works and you know how to use it. Once you know the motor or switch is bad then you can purchase another (if you desire) and just pay the labor to have it done. It is well worth it. The scissor lift device on a lot of the automatic windows is under a lot of tension and you can easily break fingers/hands if not 100% certain what you are doing. This is one, I myself would pay to have done (and I have, it cost me $80 labor). Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to get my power window up manually on 2000 Subaru Outback

Remove the inner door panel and disengage the window track from the motor gear, you may have to at least partially remove the window motor, push the window into place and put everything back to hold it there.

Theres no power getting to the switch. Did check the fuses? This could be the source of your problem, if the fuses are ok then the contacts in the switch may be worn, you may have to replace the switch.

Why won't my window work


Check for:
(1) Bound mechanism - try testing the motor before installing, see if you can move the window up and down by hand.
(2) Good ground. Make sure you have both 12V & ground at the motor.
(3) Bad replacement motor. Although unlikely, you could have gotten a bad part. Try bench testing with a 12V battery.

All power windows won't work, but you can hear the motors working.


Take off the interior door panel and look to see what is moving and what is not. It is extremely unusual for the motor to run and not open/close ALL four windows.

Try "helping" the window the window to go down by pressing your hand agaist it and pushing it down . If it moves then the motor is not gone. My 02 Century driver window gets slow when it's cold or dirty. Try spraying some ArmorAll into the tracks on the door. This will not only help flush out dirt but lubricate as well

IF there is a grinding noise then the motor is trying to move, so take out he unit and try to see if the motor works , if so the mechanism is faulty or the motor does not have power in the drive.
can be the driver switching the motor or the motor itself. Replace after testing the transistor drive.

can you hear the motor trying to work the window? A fairly common problem is the window regulator breaks. this is the cable operated lifting mechanism that raises the window, when it breaks you can hear the motor winding away, accompanied by a faint clunking noise as the motor tries to operate the mechanism. They are quite difficult to replace.
if you cannot hear the motor working (also assuming all your other windows do work) then either to motor is faulty or there is no power to the motor. the wiring inside the rubber boot that goes from the car to the door (by the door hinges) is prone to breaking due to the constant flexing back and fourth as the door is opened and closed. switches can also fail, you may be able to swap the drivers/passengers switches around if they are identical for testing.

Driver's side window will not open or close automaticaly. Has to be pulled up and down by hand


Check the wiring and connectors supplying the driver-side window motor and also the fuses in case each window is fused seperately. The electric motor may have failed. When you operate the switch do you hear the motor working?
