    The track is clean and no appearence of binding.at this point it appears tht the problem is the electric motor. Its just wearing out.

Seems the window is 'dragging' in it's track or it is OUT-OF-TRACK. Verify that the window is in it's track - if so, find/get some silicon spray and spray it down the front & rear track. See if that does the trick. If you discover the window is OUT-OF-TRACK, you'll need to put it back in its track (or find someone who knows how to do this). If neither of these solutions works, perhaps you should take it into the Hyundai Dealership and have them diagnose the problem.

    That's always a possibility... but not necessarily a probability. The only way I know to verify if it's the motor, is to connect an amp meter in place of the fuse which supplies power to the window motors and compare the amount of current each motor draws. This comparison allows you to see if there's a difference. Now, if there is a difference, it may simply be a window regulator which is binding/sticking at the pivot point (not necessarily the motor). Try this: take the glass out and see if the problem goes away and if the current draw changes. If the current draw is the same (say, between 4 and 7 amps), then swap the motor from the rear door and see what happens. After swapping motors, if the condition improves, then I'd say you're right about the motor wearing out.

How do I manually roll up a 1999 jeep grand Cherokee power drivers side window


sure, take off door car
access motor,. and remove motor or find a way to move its gear
drive to put window up
or hot wire motor. (one way goes down, other polarity up)
ask for how to hot wire, (do so connector at motor pulled)
use a jumper wire with 15amp inline fuse #18 gage wire or larger.

if you hot wired it straight to the motor and it works up and down fine chances are you have a broken or shorted wire between the button switch and the motor itself possibly between where the door opens and shuts at the hinge

My 97 GMC Drivers window goes down but not up. If it turn the power on and off it will roll up, however when it goes down the "auto" kicks and and wont stop. When it reaches the bottom the...


With some makes and models, there is an auto down module for express down, it can be part of the driver door master switch.
With express down, when the window gets to the bottom, the module may sense over current, then interrupts voltage.
On some vehicles that had problems with window motor, I have touched power window circuit breaker, this one was metal, hot as it could be. The circuit breaker will trip when it gets hot and none of your powers will work. Once the circuit breaker cools down, it may reset and the windows will work again.
If you bench tested the new window motor on the bench, with jumper wires to battery, It will probably run as long as the jumper wires are hooked up, nothing to shut the voltage off. Just my opinion.

1999 A6. Driver's side window goes down but then


there are many reasons , but the most common is a worn and week motor or a ground problem giving too low voltage , or the window guides are worn too thin . best thing to do is put a voltage meter on the motor and roll up the window , look for voltage increases or voltage drop .

There is no power to window switch is ok but won;nt roll down driver side or passanger side need to no how to get driver side window down antil i get fixed


Remove the door panel, and use two jumper wires to the window motor. One wire goes to a good, non-painted surface on the metal body of the van, for a good ground. The other wire goes to a 12 volt source. Touch the two wires of the window motor with the two jumper wires.

Tries to go up? Switch the jumper wires around, and try again.

Principles of Operation
Power Window Control
NOTE: Battery power and ground must be removed before disconnecting the GEM connectors to avoid setting false DTCs.
The driver power window one-touch down operation is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM). This feature functions only when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACCY positions. The GEM determines ignition switch position by monitoring the key-in ignition, RUN/ACCY and RUN/START circuits. The one-touch down operation is requested of the GEM by momentarily pressing the driver window regulator control switch DOWN for 62 ms to 320 ms. The GEM uses the initial voltage input from the down switch to begin the one-touch down operation. If the voltage input was less than 320 ms, the GEM will maintain the voltage supply to the motor down circuit. The GEM will maintain the operation until:
  • seven seconds expires.
  • motor stall is detected by monitoring the current draw.
  • a voltage input is received by the GEM on either the up or down switch circuits.
The ground for one-touch down operation does not pass through the GEM. The ground is supplied through the driver window regulator control switch as with normal operation. If the GEM continues to see voltage on the down circuit for more than 320 ms after initial activation the GEM will not effect operation. The down circuit through the GEM is a direct connection to the motor in its normal state. This allows the driver window regulator control switch to control the motor for normal operation.
The passenger window motors are hardwired directly to the window regulator control switches.
