These window motors do periodically fail. Instead of trying to tinker with the motor itself, best to cut right to replacing the window motor. You can buy them online. Don't buy the cheap ones with the short warranty. Make sure you get the ones that have a multi-year or lifetime warranty, as they are usually of a higher quality. I just replaced one for my 94 Camry and the part cost $67.00 with a lifetime warranty. Make sure that the bottom of the window is securely bolted to the unit, Check to make sure the bolt made it all the way through both parts, as it is easy to overlook it if not fully secure.

UNBOLT THE MOTOR FROM THE REGULATOR AND SEE IF IT TURNS AND STAYS COOL WITHOUT A LOAD ON IT. IF THE MOTOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH AFTER YOU USE THE UP AND DOWN BUTTON 2-3 TIMES THEN REPLACE THE REGULATOR, IT MAY BE JAMMED, CAUSING THE MOTOR TO STOP WORKING BECAUSE IT IS THERMALLY PROTECTED. WHICH MEANS IT IS SUPPOSED TO SHUT OFF WHEN IT GETS TOO HOT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. BEST OF LUCK

Hello, my driveside window on a 1999 toyola solara quit woriking and i can't open the door from the inside, what is wrong with it?


Window regulator is probably broke . An not being able to open the door from inside , I would say the handle broke inside the door . You have to take door panel off to get inside the door . Videos on youtube showing how to do it an test it.

1997 toyota land cruiser right rear window not working


Have a look at your disconnected terminals and see which connections work what. You indicated some work at connector but not on motor?
Its possible that a bad solder job inside the motor may be keeping the reverse rotation of the motor from occurring. Jump the terminal with a power source and see if the motor terminal is dead. Some motors do not come apart. If you go to a Salvage yard, they may know how to test your old one and bring it along to match up. Often the left and right sides are different.

Power window on driver's side won't go up or down. Other windows work. Is it a switch or regulator problem?


the only way to answer that is to pull the inner door panel off and jump 12V right to the regulator motor. If it runs, then it is the switch, if not then you need a new regulator. The regulator however has a moving part, being the motor. moving parts wear out faster. And 10 years is about the lifespan of a window motor, and the driver's door gets the most use so it usually dies first. So the default setting is to do the regulator.

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.
