Most likely it is neither, this can be caused by the channels the glass runs in being dries out, this is what we do at work that usually cures this problem, go to any parts store or any hardware and buy a can of spray silicone lubricant, roll the window down and soak the channels good with the spray, protect the other door parts while u do this as the silicone can discolor some plastic components, then roll the window up and down to a few times to distribute the spray up and down the channels repeat if necessary, this should make the window roll up and down with ease.

Most likely the motor is burning out.

1995 subaru legacy L wagon. drivers side master power window switch stopped working. others work fine. how do I track down the exact problem. it's not a fuse.


You just did. Its the master switch. Buy a switch from a large parts store, use a flat tip screwdriver to remove switch then install new switch. This should take you about 20 mins. Super Easy

My 2000 Nissan Maxima power window switches work intermittently. The driver's side master switches control all windows just fine. Each passenger door switch only works to put the window up. If you cycle...


The switches are done. If you dont want to bother with them again- just buy new ones-....or just take them apart and clean them every 3 days.

Sounds like you need a window motor. Try hitting in center of door trim panel to see if you can get it to work if so replace motor.

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?

Subaru 2000 outback power window driver's side


Hi there,
Very simple. Only one of a few things. First off. Push the up and down switch, listen, if there is a humming sound, your actuator may be fine. You window may be off track. If it is not off track, and there is a humming sound, then it may be the master switch. They are not that expensive. If it is not the master switch, the only other two things it could be is the up/down button or the connectors under the button. I hope that helped you out. Good luck and let me know. Have a great day.~MWD

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.

My 2003 Forester driver side window wont work.


You need power window regulator as the cable of the regulator is out its place ,

  1. Remove the gusset cover.
  2. Pull up the inner door handle cover toward you to remove the upper hook. Pull down it to remove the lower hook. Remove the inner door handle cover.
  3. Remove the power window switch assembly.
  4. Using a trim panel remover, remove the clips of the trim panel.
  5. Remove the speaker.
  6. Using a spatula, remove the door sealer.
  7. Remove the outer mirror assembly.
  8. Remove the front end of the door weatherstrip and gusset.
  9. Remove the stabilizers.
  10. Remove the rear end of the door weatherstrip (inner and outer).
  11. Operate the power windows switch so the bolts from the regular assembly are visible through the service holes. Remove the mounting nuts.
  12. Take out the door glass. CAUTIONDo not turn the regulator in closing direction after removal of the glass. Otherwise gear may be disengaged.
  13. Loosen the nuts to remove the rear sash.
  14. Disconnect the power window motor wiring harness.
  15. Loosen the four bolts and two nuts to pull out the regulator assembly.
  16. Remove the screws to remove the motor from the regulator assembly.
  17. Installation is the reverse order of removal.0759a6d.jpg23cb1e4.jpg
