The cables are probably broken on the regulator assembly. You'll probably have to replace the unit.

SOURCE: my driver side window isn't working I can hear the

Hello pechedog.
The window regulator on these vehicles are operated by a shall cable that is powered by an electric motor.
It is common for the cables to snap and disable the operation of the window.
The regulator needs to be replaced as an assembly.
Because this is such a common problem the aftermarket companies are making them and are considerably less expensive that the original manufacturer part.
If you are a handy person you may want to take this job on, if not, get a tech to do it for you.

Try "helping" the window the window to go down by pressing your hand agaist it and pushing it down . If it moves then the motor is not gone. My 02 Century driver window gets slow when it's cold or dirty. Try spraying some ArmorAll into the tracks on the door. This will not only help flush out dirt but lubricate as well

Power window won't go down but you can here the motor running in the door


You can remove the door handles and power window switches and the screws in the door pad and push up on the pad and it will come out of the track and then you can see the motor and replace the part yourself. Hope this helps.

Why is my driver side power window not working


Tough to diagnose without being there but from my experience it sure sounds like either a bad window switch or bad window motor. Using a 12 Volt test light, try to determine if either of the 2 wires at the window motor receives power when you use push the window switch. If theres power at those 2 wires when you push the switch you probably have a bad motor. If not, then your switch is probably bad. A third but less likely possibility is that the window regulator is jammed. However,
you would hear some sort of sound from the motor trying to move the glass. You said you heard nothing. Hope this helps.

Have you tried replacing the master window switch? Just because the other windows work doesnt mean that switch for that window is good.

The main switch is controled by the drivers door main unit.....i had to use a forward force on my windows switch for it to work....so replaced the whole unit, you could find those on ebay cheap if local auto parts is expensive

Electric window 1991 F150 ...351


If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.
