Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

The driver's window is stuck in an open position. What is the best way to try to fix it? I tried taking the door panel apart, but I didn't want to force it where it was attached at the door handle. Any suggestions?

Driver rear door stuck closed on 2002 Santa Fe Hyundai. Any ideas on how to fix it?


It's usually the lock that is stuck in lock position.Roll down the window,grab a rubber hammer and as you reach inside and unlock the door,HIT THE DOOR at the locking area with the rubber hammer.Now try to open the door.It may take a few tries but works to open doors 90% of the time.DO NOT lock this door until you have lubed the internal locking mechanical parts and are sure they work.

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

Drivers side window will not go completely airtight when up.drops and goes up when door opens and shuts, but not high enough to seal correctly


My 02 had this same problem, the glass has shifted position in the mechanism. You will need to take the inner door card off to get at the mechanism, lower the glass about half way then reach through the large opening in the door panel to feel for the large 'cog' shaped retaining bolts that hold the glass to the mechanism (one either side, both facing the outer door skin). A 5mm torx or allen key bit is required to loosen both 'cogs'. You can then adjust the glass position. This is possibly best done with two people...once the glass is loose, make sure you move the glass first to break the seal (it may have stuck to the rubber seal over time, so will not move much), then gently tighten into place, raise the window to the full up position, shut the door fully, then with the help of an assistant, one inside the car one outside, move the glass into the desired place and tighten the cogs. Open the door, fully lower and fully raise the glass, then keep the switch in the up position for 5 seconds, this teaches the ECU the new position. Check that the window closes when you open and close the door, if not, try adjusting the glass angle with the adjustment screws located at the very bottom of the door. When in the right position, you should just be able to pull a sheet of paper past the glass and the seal. Boom, done!

Rear driver side lock stuck in the unlocked position.


The servo motor in the door lock may have failed, broke, or disconnected. An Authorized Chevy Dealer should be able to check it.

1998 ford taurus driver window won't go up, I got it up then I hit the inside door panel to get it in place now the window is stuck down again, what doI do?


First, Push the window button that corresponds with the window that is stuck. Slam the door. Jostles the bushings that probably have dried up grease. Then window begins to work again. Second, try taking off the door panel. Once the door panel is off, connect a test light to the harness side of the connector and try the switch in both positions. If it lights up in both switch positions, circuit to motor is fine, and motor is the problem. Sometimes the motors can be fixed, sometimes not.

Volcompunker is on track.... if it is a stuck motor problem, before taking door apart, try this...it may work, works well on dodge caravans...

NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

1 right side about same height as top of armrest. 1 (each side) about same height as bottom of armrest. 1 on each corner bottom. 1 bottom in middle.  1 on left side between bottom corner and the previous at about lower armrest height...

Remove Service Hole cover.

All windows will not go up or down


Check the wire in the rubber boot by the driver side door hinge....shake it around while trying to lower a window ..sometimes a wire gets cut right there!!! If so , you'll just have to mend the split in the wire ...

Rear windows


yes. unless you want to try replacing the driver side switch first which can be pricey. all the windows run on one circuit which is started by the drivers side switch if this switch goes bad windows will not work. if the switch isn't the problem the motors are and fro this the panels will have to come off and the job itself is not fun.
