Window motor replaced a year ago, now the window is stuck halfway. It will nudge up or down just a tiny bit, but no further

Try scrubbing the dirt out of the channels using a child's toothbrush. If that doesn't work, remove the inner door panel and check for window jumped out of track as a result of door slamming. Also be sure track mounting screw at bottom of tracks is tight and check operation with the panel off to be sure window raises and lowers smoothly without cocking in the tracks.

Power windows will not go up or down

Window motors could be bad or off track. When you try to put the windows up or down, do you hear any noise at all like a very light humming from inside the doors? If you do the motors are working, just the windows are off track. If not, then check your fuses. Could easily be a blown fuse if it's all of the windows not working at once. If the fuse is okay it's either a short in the wires, or the motors are bad.

1993 lexus sc400. Drivers window fell down inside door. Can hear the motor running. Is it just off the track? Thanks!!!

You will have to remove the door panel to find out

I would say 95% of the time, it is more than off the
track, if that is even possible.

In most cases the window regulator breaks or
wears out. Every vehicle is slightly different

Electric window stopped working and glass is dropping

It sounds like your regulator is not functioning for one. Sounds like your window is off track for another. Perhaps the rivets that hold the track in place may have busted causing the track to not lay flat and is allowing the window to fall down. I have seen this many times. You will have to take the inside door panel off of the door and have a look. That is the only way to tell exactly what is wrong but the things I listed more than likely are at least in part the culprit. After the tract for the window breaks the regulator can not track up and down properly and it begins to jam and not function properly. It eventually jams and no longer moves. This means your window will not go up or down. This is what I think the problem is. If your glass was not dropping and it was just the window not rolling up or down anymore I would suggest looking at the regulator or the master control (lock and window buttons.) Good luck.

Rear window wont go up. Motor works but seems to be binding

The window regulator, is cable driven, the regulator will have to be replace, when the cable goes bad, that's the sound you hear, you can more then likely move the window up and down a little.

Back seat passenger power window of a 2003 ford explorer is not working. I can hear the motor working but the window doesn't go up or down. I can push it up and down manually but now the window is inside...

The window came off the tracks. You will need to take the inner door panel off and get to the window track and put the window back in the track.

Window will not roll down but I can hear the motor

If you can hear the window motor running but the window will not go down; the window has more than likely came off track due to the failure of the window regulator. If you remove the inside door panel, you can verify this fairly easily.

Passenger side power windows will not roll down

Do you hear a clicking noise as if the motor is trying or no sound at all? If you hear a clicking or humming noise it is likely the track has come loose. The track is scissor like and what the window sits in inside the door. Sometimes they can derail. If you DONT hear any clicking or humming it is likely that your window motor has burnt out on that side. A common occurrence with heavy use or low power conditions. The window motor for your vehicle can be found at partsgeek it is a relatively easy fix if you are handy with tools and patient. About a 2 hour fix on weekend, but requires removing door panel interior and removal of motor

Window not working, can hear motor, can manually move window up & down, heard something drop inside door now window rattles

For some reason your window has fallen off the track that it rides on as it goes up and down. You will have to remove the inner door panel and replace it on the track or guides. This is close work and you will be exposed to sharp edges of the door.
