We just had the same problem with a newer Taurus so we took off the door panel and found the window was out of its track - temporarily we filled the track with "THE RIGHT STUFF" gasket maker made by Permatex (sold at all auto parts stores) and pushed the glass back into the track - I use this gasket maker on truck axles and have a very hard time trying to separating them several month later

1998 Honda CRV Drivers side window(power) will not go up. I push the switch and I can hear the motor going. Could the glass have slipped off. Any suggestions.


You will need to replace the the motor and arm that operates the window up and down.
If you can hear the motor run but nothing happens, this means that the cable attached to the motor has broken. You can replace this part as a unit.

The rear passenger side window recently stopped working. i used the key to roll down all windows and all worked properly. i then rolled them all back up using the key and they all went up smoothly and at...


FIRST YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE REAR PASSENGER INTERIOR DOOR COVER TO GET TO THE WINDOW MOTOR. ONCE REMOVED LOOK TO SEE IF THE WIRE IS STILL CONNECTED TO THE MOTOR. IF IT IS, DISCONNECT THE WIRE. ***IF YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER(OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES) WITH THE IGNITION SET TO AUX, OR ON IT DOESNT MATER, TEST THE POWER COMING FROM THE WIRE. IF IT READS 9.5-12+V, THE POWER IS GETTING TO THE WINDOW MOTOR AND STOPPING, YOU NEED A NEW MOTOR. IF THERE IS NO POWER COMING FROM THE WIRE, YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE YOUR CAR TO A SHOP. IT IS NOT A FUSE SINCE ALL THE WINDOWS RUN OFF THE SAME FUSE AND RELAY.

**IF NO MULTIMETER IS AVALIBLE, TAKE A 12V POWER SOURCE (CAR BATTERY) AND RUN THE POWER DIRECTLY FROM THE BATTERY TO THE WINDOW MOTOR. IF THE MOTOR RUNS, BAD WIREING. IF THE MOTOR DOES NOT RUN, BAD MOTOR.

How do I know if I need a rear drivers side window regulator and motor or just one or the other?


If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening to the window, you need a regulator. If nothing is happening when you use the switch and you have determined that power is getting to the motor you need the motor. Check the price of both though, sometimes it is not a great difference to buy the whole unit, and if you can it is a lot easier to replace.
Hope this helps

2002 Toyota tundra window lift motor installation problems


I'm not positive, but i think you have to check the switch and wires on the driver's side. Check , especially the ground wires and power wires in the bundle that goes through the door jam. There may be one broken or shorting out in there.

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.

Power Window on passenger side not working


It either needs a new window motor or switch. To tell which, you can open the door, have the ignition in the on positon or running, hold up or down on the window switch (whichever way it needs to go), and slam the door pretty hard while holding the switch. If the window works, it needs a motor/regulator assembly. If not, look at wiring or switch. If you can hear the motor running, and nothing happens, you need a motor/regulator assembly.
