Same window? Those Jeeps are fully of unreliable relays. Start checking (swapping) those that work, with those circuits that seem not to. A very common problem--lots of owners carry a couple of spare relays in the glove box.

Driver side window on my 2010 Dodge Avenger R/T will roll down but won't roll up

A couple of possibilities: One is a bad switch. The other is that the window regulator has broken. The window regulator is the motorized unit that raises and lowers the power windows in your car. It consists of an electric motor that uses a loop of cable to pull the window up and down the window tracks. These wear out and often the cable loop will break or jamb. Once this happens it will only move the window with the motor's power one way. Up can only pull something with a cable, pushing it doesn't work so it needs the complete loop to do both. Replacing these is common and involves removing the door's interior panel and unbolting the window regulator from the window and the door frame and replacing it was a new one. These units usually can not be fixed and must be replaced. here is one I replaced last year in my GM truck. The old is laid out here in the same position it is in in the door and the new is below it still in the packaging. Tip: If you tackle this yourself make sure you tape the window in position BEFORE unbolting the regulator. If you don't you risk dropping the window into the door and breaking it!

My back window wont roll up at all

if there is a pause from when the motor starts to when the window moves it is a worn or faulty window regulator, the motor not starting when you press the up on the switch could be a bad switch, if you have a meter check for voltage at the switch when you press up.

1997 pontaic grand prix driver side window stuck in down position. think switch is bad ,but while waiting for switch is there a way to get window up?

The only way I know to get the window up is to remove the door panel and run the window motor with jumper wires. However, before you replace the switch (which is not usually the problem) you should check the wires on the driver's door between the point where the wires exit the door and enter the kick panel area. It's common for the wires and insulation to break down over the years, and since the driver's door is opened and closed the most, causing the wires to bend back and forth, it is a common failure. The passenger side window uses the wiring in the driver's side door to operate.

My power windows would not go down( had the same problem few months ago, but it worked off & on ), have'nt been able to down it for a week, then today i pressed driver window button and it went down...

Sound like a problem with the windows motor, not relay. I suggest replace it definitively and wrong solve; I have the same problem in my Jeep ago few months, my windows go to down but won't up, some kicks solve this problem few time, then windows motor died.

Hope helps.

Drivers side door will not go up or down; window is off track and door will not open

Hello. You have two choices here on how to proceed. Often when this occurs, it is a sign that the window motor and the track inside that door are on their "last legs" This assembly is called the power window regulator and it can be found on the net for about $75.00 So, you may either put the window back in the track and hope for the best or you may choose to replace the power window motor and the track, which comes as one unit called a driver's side door power window assembly. Either way, you have to remove the inner door panel to expose the track and the motor and the glass.

The motor that powers the window up and down is probably shot, and needs to be replaced. This requires removing the door panel, drilling out the power window mounting rivets, removing and replacing the motor. I have a 96 grand am, and over the last 3 years I have had to change all 4 power window motors. Not the best quality motor.

Why won't power windows work even when the motor does?

the window regulator is made to lift up and down the window continuously for a number of years, some last forever and some dont. he motor still works but cant draw the correct power source from the batteryy to lift the window as the motor is working at half the strength as the motor wll be slowly burning out. it wont work even if you replace any fuces or switches. you can pick up a secondhand regulator froma wreckers and easily fit it at low cost. some will fit it for you for a small price.

91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open

No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

Electric motor probelm on windows

For several years Buick used a cable type power window. They only last 3 to 5 years. A small piece of plastic connects the cable to the window and lifts the window up. It breaks and the window will slide down. Then the cable jumps the track on the power drum and jams. It cannot be fixed with any sense that it will last. I have spent 2 days repairing the cable and drum and using epoxy on the plastic part, but the plastic part will break again. The dealer will charge about $500 to replace the power window assy, and it will last for another 3 years. To do it yourself, buy from a parts house that will give a lifetime guaranty. Cost about $90.
Note: If the window stays up and you do not hear the motor it is most likely electrical and not mechanical.
My 2000 Buick has had 7 window failures. For a temporary fix remove the door panel and use a small C clamp under the window. A 1 in C clamp fits best. Lift the window full up and clamp it in the center on the power cable support and tight against the window attach plate.
