Question about Cars & Trucks
My window wont roll up or down but I hear the motor trying. The cable is shredding so do I replace the motor or just the cable?
Replacing the motor wont do you any good. You will still have a shreded cable. You can usually order the whole window regulator assembly as motor and cable plus all guides. If there is an option to get it without the motor you should be able to do that and save your self some money as it sounds like the motor still works just fine.

It is most likely the switch itself. since the down works that means that there is power going to the switch. So, the up position switch is probably worn out.

I have a Pontiac grand prix that my passenger rear window wont roll up, i need to get the window to close atleast temporarily until i can get the problem looked at. I have taken the door apart and tried pushing it up, but it wont go as much as i have tried. Any advise would be great right about now. thanks

I had this problem as well as 33 others I've spoken to online. The main floor harness runs thru the drivers side front fender and plugs into the drivers door. The harness in 1996 civics are an inch or 2 too short so after a few years a few of the 25 thru 27 wires in the plug #C556 either break off or pull out of the plug. Since the drivers door contains the master power window and lock switches and the power mirrors can also be affected it can seem like everyones problems are in different parts of the car but they are all part of the same default. So I went to ebay and purchased a floor harness with full power options and installed it myself. Until my part came in I just went to a junk yard and cut off a good plug then spliced it into my existing floor harness. Hope this helps. It took me 4 months to figure this problem out!!!
