SOURCE: My front driver side power window is not working

you have to replace the window regulator reason why is because the cable ripped which would cause the motor to work without moving the window up or down .. regulator is the cable and the rails were the motor makes the woindow move up and down on. you have to replace it.

SOURCE: Power windows in front will not go down back windows work

I had the same issue on my '01 530i. The window stayed in one place and I could hear the motor going up and down. It took me 30 mins to fix both the Driver's window and the front Pass window. Remove the door panel, then pull back the plastic liner. There are 2 clamps that hold on to the window. You will need to loosen these 2 clamps (that ride on vertical guides), either find the rubber pads (2 per clamp) that wedge between the glass and the clamp. (one on each side of the clamp.) or purchase new ones. Replace these rubberpads, slide the window back into place. Gently snug up the clamps, and carefully raise the window until it seals. This will set its position. Now tighten up the clamps again. Done. One other issue that sometimes occurs is that there is a plastic clip that needs to be replaced that holds the cable to the clamps, but normally only one clip goes at a time and the window will twist and some times break. That doesn't sound like your issue. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4x4 all power windows not working

had same problem with 94. in the door jam there is a rubber boot that holds all the wires for your power windows and locks and stuff. remove the boot and check each of the wires in that harness to make sure they are not broke. that's what was wrong with mine on both doors. the wires break with repeated door openings.

SOURCE: 94 chevy s10 blazer power windows not working

I had the same problem - driver side fine, passenger side front not working/slow or the back seat. You need to replace the window motor on the passenger side. Yes, there are two motors. It's pretty simple if you are handy with some tools. The hardest part is getting the 4 mounts that hold the window motor to the door off. The are factory riveted to the door, so I had to grind the outsides off and tap them out. Just watch the spring lever that holds the window bar for going up and down. I didn't pay attention and it snapped back - nearly broke my thumb.

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.

Auto windows not working on driver and passenger side front


This could be an issue with corrosion of the relay between the switch and the motor (little black box).

Sometimes the glue that holds the motor's "piston" to the window will stop working, and the "piston" will slip off the window, causing the window to stick in the down position as well. As long as your doors are apart, you might want to check that too.

For the windows to work, you may need to find a new relay, or possibly a new motor. They can burn out or have other problems in excessive heat/use/age. The GOOD news is that pretty much every salvage yard will have 4 or 5 1987-1991 Oldsmobiles sitting around, so you can steal the parts for next to nothing. Also, Buick LeSabres (also 1987-1991) are almost identical to the 88's, so you can use those for parts too!

Best of luck!

Driver side window not going up or down


It is most likely a wire that became disconnected at the switch, if neither windows work, it is likely a fuse.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window


The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.
