Sounds like your window motor got to many volts and burnt the motor out.This can be costly,Check the fuse first if that does not work it may just be A bad switch. Take to A service station and have them test it,But don,t let them order A new one get one at A junk yard and have them test it there or buy A reconditioned one.
They cost A lot try to save money like we all do today.
Good luck it will be cold soon......

Dodge Avenger window rolls down when I start the car

Probably a bad window switch on your driver's door panel. Replace it and you should be fine.

Hi - My 03 Ion wipers have just started to cause me problems. Went through an automatic car wash a few weeks ago and the driver's side wiper arm flipped up and i think got bent/broke somewhere inside...

I would call around to local junkyards and see if any have an 03 Ion. If so go buy the drivers wiper arm from them. At the base of the arm is a socket with serrations or splines in it. If these are rounded off, do not buy the arm, just keep looking. Once you have a good one, make sure your wiper switch is in OFF position. Have someone with some basic tools pull off the plastic cap over the base of your wiper arm if it is still there. Generally these caps are gone after about 2 years. Then remove the nut which holds the arm onto the little stub. Pull the wiper arm off, may take a little gentle rocking but do not pry against glass. When it is off, put your replacement arm on so that it sits in the right rest position, snug the nut down, and put the cap back on. If you know what loctite is that nut would be a good place for it, but not necessary. Might be a good time to replace both wiper blades. Alternatively you can pull off the cap and snug the nut down, but if the serrations are smoothed over this will be useless.

Most likely is alternator, but usually the battery light will be on, but not always. the alternator should be right on top. you will need to loosen the belt tensioner and take belt loose ( be sure to draw a diagram for the belt if there isnt one under the hood) disconnect the battery , check the tensioner and any other pullies while your at it. Be sure to charge the battery with a battery charger, while you are replacing the alt. the altermator is a battery "maintainer" not a charger. It puts too much of a load on the new alternator and can overheat it.

1995 Toyota 4 Runner rear window will not open, on

check to make sure that the wiper is not stuck in the window seal. Pull it out if it is and then try. The window will not roll down if the wiper is in that position.
