Question about 1988 Plymouth Grand Voyager

Open Question

How do you take the door panel off of a 1988 Plymouth Voyager

The electric window on the passenger side door won't fully close anymore, yet the motor still works you can hear it trying to close the window. It gets about half way close and then the winow stops and the motor keeps going. To keep the rain out weve had to pull the window up ourselves. We were wondering how to get the door panel off correctly so we could try to fix it and any tips you have on how to go about fixing it.

    Unscrew the fasteners for the door handle and the trim. The door panel is fastened with clips that you should be able to just pop off. The door compartment is covered with an insulating batting that is just taped in place. The insulation needs to be removed to access the window mechanism inside the door, That model year used an electric motor with a worm gear that drove a nylon linear gear on a track to operate the window. The linear gear has tendency to break and needs to be replaced. The broken linear gear is probably what keeps the window from completely closing. The only difference between the driver's side and the passenger side is the gear box and the mounting brackets. The motor is not 'handed' but was sold together with the gear box. Also the nylon gears were not sold separately.

SOURCE: i have a 1998 plymouth voyager and the insturment panel and gauges and wipers and locks stopped working how could this be fixed

you have to replace the " body control module " located under dash drivers side. and most of time they have to be reprogrammend unless you buy it new from dealer and they do it before you get it. the body control mod controls all those items and go bad alot.

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.

Looking for exact fuse location for passenger side front window and for the rear passenger panel window.

Try the driver's side kick panel inside to the left of where your left leg would be while driving. All the wiring from the pwr. window is there close by too. take care and good luck.

Rear electric window will notwork

Yes . Remove door panel, switch connectors and plastic protective covering on the door. have a helper pull the windw up while you measure the distance from bottom of window regulator to bottom of door panel.
(approx 8-12"), cut a block of wood that will fit between the bottom of the regulator to bottom of door panel wedge it threw the opening in the door a place it between the regulator and door bottom. Wood is soft and sturdy and should hold up until you get the window fixed.
Can the driver control panel switch make that window work. If the answer is No then the problem is the motor on that side. If the answer is yes then the problem is the switch on that window. by the way if the driver control panel gets the window to rise Merry Christmas you don't need the wooden block.

Electric window close just half way only

hello velazqj, sounds like maybe the window regulator is binding, or possibly the window motor itself. Try helping the window up by pulling up on the glass when closing and see if it closes fully. If you hear any funny grinding or crunching noises, the regulator has most likely failed. The regulator is a scissor design and the motor is directly bolted to it. I would recommend removing the door panel and having both inspected.
