Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood. The fuse diagram is printed on the inside of the lid. If the fuse is good and you have power then you need to see if there is a related relay that might be the problem. Get a replacement relay and swap it in if you believe the related relay is bad. These don't usually go but it is possible.

Do you have power at the switch? that is the next thing to check. If you have power at the fuse and the switch then go to the motor for the window and verify power at the connections . Use a good 12 volt test light for these test and make sure your ground clip is making a good connection. If you have power at the motor but it still isn't moving the window, is the motor running but the window isn't moving?? If this is the case then you have a mechanical issue with the mechanism.

My Ram doesn't have a power slider so I'm not sure what the regulator and motor assembly looks like but the above steps will get you close to identifying the root cause. Good luck.

Why does my 2006 toyota sienna power sliding door not close properly


Could be resistance in one of the tracks, or the motor.
If the motor hits a resistance the door opens in case the resistance is a human.

The electric rear sliding window does not work


Hi.

The window will open because the motor only needs to stop the window from sliding too fast. it is being helped by gravity and thus will draw fewer amps. I would have a look at the battery first (if the problem only happens when the car is off i.e. the motor isn't running) or the alternator when the car is on. the motor could also be damaged and is not able to lift the window (if the armature has over heated and fused)

Hope that helps

The electric rear sliding window does not work. Where is the fuse located? 2005 Ford F 150 Lariat Crew cab.


If the power windows still work, it is not a fuse issue, they share the same fuse ( F401 form the accessory delay relay )

Either the switch or the motor is the cause.

When you press the button to the close direction ( with the window closed ) do the lights dim ( headlamp / interior lamps ) ?
If they do, the window is getting power in that direction, so it could be the switch for the open direction or the motor, or something in the track.

If you pull down the overhead console ( the non rail one is open the sun glass compartment, and pull down on each rear corner, it is held up with spring clips ) the wires to the slider are Red w/ yellow stripe and yellow w/ light blue stripe.
If you apply power to these wires, one direction is open, the reverse is close. Test direct to the wires to know if the slider motor is the issue or the switch.

Check the entire track for obstructions

To get the slider motor, you need to remove the rear seat back

I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening
-door kick back open while closing

Door motor:
-door not to work
-cause door to jam

The rear sliding door will not open or close electrically.


there is a motor that drives the doors just like the motors used for windows. they do go bad.you will need to inspect the motor it is located behind the wall panel behind the sliding door. you may have to remove some bolts for seat belts and there may be some screws but most of the panel is held on with snap clips. take your time and don't break them if you can. when reinstalling be sure you are lined up before forcing the panel it will just bend the clips. once in there try tapping on the motor lightly with a small hammer. then try it it may start working again. I've seen it many times. if not maybe get one from a salvage yard. saves a lot of money. good luck

My sunroof is not able to be closed. It is in the pop up position. Is there a manual way to close it? eg no use of electricity?


there is no manual method. It sounds like a limit switch is not working. Can you hear the motor try to operate? If you push up on the back of the glass a little bit while hitting the switch, what happens.

The sliding roof panel system consists of the following components:
  • RH circuit breaker
  • Timer module
  • Power window relay
  • Roof sliding panel switch (15B691)
  • Roof glass panel (50054)
  • Sliding roof panel motor (15790)
  • Halo moulding
  • Roof sliding panel headlining (519A02)
  • Roof sliding panel slide links (502M78)
  • Roof sliding panel housing (502C22)
  • Roof air deflector (500A26)
  • Center green diode strip
-------------------------------------
When the roof sliding panel switch is activated, a gear on the sliding roof panel motor drives a spline on the roof sliding panel housing. Within the roof sliding panel housing, the spline is connected to two sliding roof panel cables which cause the roof sliding panel slide links to slide and the roof glass panel to open or to close. The sliding roof panel cables and the spline are part of the roof sliding panel housing. Neither the sliding roof panel motor nor the roof sliding panel housing can be disassembled. If a malfunction is detected with either of these assemblies, the assembly must be replaced.

Sunroof doesn"t open or close


Section 01-17: Roof Panel, Sliding—Electric 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Electric Operation The sliding roof panel (502B98):
  • is available as an option.
  • is electrically operated through the accessory delay relay (controlled by generic electronic module (GEM)).
  • is of self-storing design.
  • requires a specific headliner.
  • utilizes a unique roof console and dome lamp.
  • has an air deflector.
The electrical system operates in the following manner:
  • Two switches control movement of the roof panel.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch (15B691) is rocked rearward, the roof sliding outer glass panel (502A82) slides into the storage space between the roof trim panel (51968) and the roof panel, exposing an opening over the front seats.
  • When the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully back in the storage space, the roof sliding outer glass panel moves forward from the storage position.
  • The rear portion of the roof sliding outer glass panel moves upward on two lifter arms near the end of the forward travel, allowing a weather-tight seal when the roof sliding outer glass panel is closed.
  • An AUTO feature allows the SLIDE roof sliding panel switch to be touched momentarily to cause the roof panel to automatically move to the fully open position.
  • When the TILT roof sliding panel switch is rocked forward with the roof sliding outer glass panel fully forward, the rear of the roof sliding outer glass panel pops up to the VENT position.
  • With the roof sliding outer glass panel in the VENT position, rocking the TILT roof sliding panel switch rearward closes the roof sliding outer glass panel.
