If it just fell, it came out of its track.

if it went down slowly it must have a intrapment feature, that makes the window reverse when something it in the way.
if this is it ,the window will need to be adjusted

Rear drivers side window goes down then back up continuously. Can stop it by pressing the window lock as soon as the window reaches the top. What can I do to fix it?


Check drivers side front switches if the master switches are going bad, it will also affect the back windows, disconnect the switch first at the door with the problem if its still doing it then check the drivers side master switch. If the window lock switch stops it then I would suspect the switch.......

How to unlock door with slim jim on a 2003 envoy.GMC


Slim jim won't reach it because of how it has to be curved to get to the latch. You have to pry out the top of the jam/window. Then reach down with a close hanger to unlock the door. Don't push against the top as it will bend. Pull the window/frame out. It will bow out some. Put your knee in the middle of the door and pull the window/frame back into place.

Well my battery of my mustang wint down and i had to chage the battery and my drivers window when it goes up it bouces bacj down to a 1/5 down and i want to know how to restore it.


NOTICE: Make sure no obstructions are present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: A battery disconnect does not require this procedure to be carried out unless the battery was disconnected while the window was operating.
NOTE: Excessive bounce-back (bounce-back that occurs with no obstructions present) may indicate a non-initialized window motor.
NOTE: Carry-out the de-initialization of the motor before initializing the motor.
NOTE: The motor will only operate in the 9-16 volt range. If the voltage drops below 9 volts, the window will not function correctly or may stop moving. If the voltage drops below 9 volts while the motor is operating, the motor will become de-initialized and will need to be initialized.
NOTE: The front window motors must be initialized whenever: a new window regulator and motor is installed, a new window glass is installed, a glass top run removal and installation or when carrying out any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the window system. A new front window motor is in a proportional up/down mode until initialized.
NOTE: The convertible rear window motors do NOT need to be initialized as they do not have one-touch up or one-touch down functions.
NOTE: All front window components (window glass, window regulator, window motor and glass top run) must be installed/tightened and adjusted to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: If this procedure is only partially completed, the front window motor remains non-initialized and only the proportional up/down functions operate. A non-initialized window motor may allow one-touch down operation, but does NOT allow one-touch up operation.

De-initialization then re-initialization

The motor can be de-initialized in 2 ways:

Disconnect the battery cable from the battery while the window is operating.

Remove the window motor fuse while the window is operating.

After the motor has been de-initialized, the initialization procedure must be carried out.

Make sure there are no obstructions present in the window system when carrying out this procedure. The door MUST be closed during this procedure (for convertibles, the top and quarter glass must be in the closed and up position), in order for the door window motor to initialize.

The windows must be in the full open position for this procedure to operate correctly.

Press and hold the window control switch in the UP position at the second detent until the window glass stalls into the glass top run for at least 2 seconds.

Once the top run is reached, hold the window control switch in the DOWN position at the second detent until the window glass stalls at the bottom of its travel for at least 2 seconds.

Cycle the window glass an additional 5 times to set the window soft stop for the down position.

Test for correct window operation by carrying one-touch up feature.

Good luck, if for any reason you can't give four thumbs up, please ask for more information. Thanks!

I locked my keys in my 2005 trailblazer how do i unlock the door?


you have to have a special tool that will reach over the top of your door window and then down to hit either the window control or door locks control...you can buy these at any auto parts store but any wrecker driver has these tools and can get in in less than 5 mins... a "slim jim" will not work unless it is manual door locks (as opposed to electric)

Driver's window intermittently bounces up and down. It doesn't happen all the time. As the window goes up it bounces back down about a third of the way. Additionally, my driver's side door lock does not...


This could be a problem with the wiring harness in the door. Also the auto windows have a pinch protection feature to prevent the window from closing if anything is obstructing it. That may be your problem, but it really sounds like the wiring harness might be faulty

Keyless entry only works drivers door, car relocks


The window track may have some grit (sand or dirt) in it causing the window to drop down when it reaches to top of it's travel. This is because the safety feature which keeps you from choking yourself in an electric window works on resistance. Keep the track clean - a shot of WD40 in the track will clean it out. That should fix the window.

The lock problem may be a battery issue in the remote. Otherwise it sounds like it is in the anti-theft unit. Check for a loose ground issue.

It just needs resetting.Hold each window switch down until you hear a click at the top and then go down all the way and hold until it clicks at the bottom of its travel.A low battery will cause this sometimes or a  battery change.Tony/Hills Motors, San Mateo, CA
