Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers


HELP Driver's side power window stopped operating. It's not the fuse; you can hear it trying to work. Haven't pulled off the panel yet, but I'm imagining it's a gear or drum problem. Does anyone have special information on this problem regarind 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyagers? (Mine is an SE, 3.3, 6-cylinder). Thanks, Dave

    Thanks for the post, Joseph.  

    To clarify, the window seems to be out of the track.   My wife was in the car when it happened, and she said the window kind of slowly descended into the door frame no matter how much she hit the "up" button.   I don't think it's a fuse, as you can hear the motor trying to raise the window when you hit the "up" button for the power window.   Is the window regulator usually at fault in a case like this, or is just the motor?

    Thanks for the help. I ended up replacing the motor and the regulator. When I pulled off the door panel, the cable between the motor and the regulator upright was all twisted and gnarly--it had totally fatigued out.

    After installing the new motor and regulator, the window works perfectly.

    Does this mean the window fell out of track and is not going up/down,or is it stuck at the same point?I.e-closed or open?I have a feeling you could be in need of a window regulator assembly.

Driver's side window not working

If it won't actuate from the passenger OR driver side you'll have to pull the door panel. It WON'T be a fuse, it's the motor unless you can hear it trying and something's broken in there.

The cruise control is not working on our 1997 plymouth voyager, however the horn works and the air bag light turns off properly so I'm not sure if it would have the spring problem some of the other...

could be the plasic pipe has broken that supplies vacuum to the servo momted at top rear of engine on left[drivers]side. or a fuse has popped check ALL of them because some fuses feed other fuses and are not labeled as such on the fuse panels

Power window not working

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.

I had this problem with mine, I have the later model after yours but if you remove the interior cover, and carefully pull back the plastic, you`ll see the motor, if you loosen the three screws just enough so the you can remove the two screws that hold the motor to the winder mech (watch out for the two square nuts that can fall out once you remove the two screws), You`ll probably find that the carbon brushes inside have stuck in a position where they don`t touch the commutator. Clean them up and operate them a couple of times and you`ll probably find that it works, however, Mine is still sluggish meaning that the brushes will be getting hot due to the current and they may fail again. I`ve found out that the window lift cables have to be replaced because even with the motor removed, the glass is extremely hard to move up and down. I`ve lubricated it and everything I can think of but the motor still finds it hard to move. I hope yours runs OK. Ian
