1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down

does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

Motor is not turning in second direction to lower window. Either the new motor is defective or the device that reverses the electricity to the motor is defective. Regulator?

Take motor out and feed it juice - will turn. Reverse polarity and it should turn in other direction.

How to fix a driver side window of a honda accord 1999 that it went totally down and it doesn't come up just stay down and make an awful noise if you try to put it up again

just clean the rubber siding that hold the window glass, to much dirt makes the rubber hard and sometimes causes friction to its glass, replace it if necessary..... check also the gear for possible mis-alignment.

Driver window won't go down. All other windows work fine. When switch is pressed, makes a click sound.Took door panel off, all looks good with the gears and wiring.

It sounds like your window needs a new switch or motor. You can get switch directly from dealership. i would try that first, if not your window motor may need to be replaced. Switch usually is under 100.00 and very easy to install. ur switch may control other windows but driver side may be burned out.

1999 Buick Centery passenger side windshield wiper

Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.
