Just bought coupe v6 and drivers window wont work

Drivers windows get the most use so usually are first to fail. Do you hear the motor try to run? If you remove the inner door panel you can try using jumper wires directly to the motor to see what's up. Bad motor most likely.

Drivers side power window motor

Your best shot at an easy fix is to find the broken fourth wire for that rear door, and be able to splice it back together in the door opening, without having to pull the door panel off to get to that or to everything else that could be accessed. Yes, the motor could be jumped from a battery set nearby, but to do so, the door panel has to be removed.
I think there should be four wires to that door. I can think of no logical reason to have four on one rear door and three on the other. Pull all the protective covers away from the wires to look at them closely for a broken wire or broken end of a wire. Good luck. If it rains, you may have to use the plastic sheet over door trick.

How do you remove the door panel on this car? once again my window has gone out -I have had all 4 replaced am on my second round with most and cant afford to have it done again so thought to try myself -...

you will need a forked screw driver if it is held in place by clips it more than likely is since it is a 2000 model. run the forked screw driver under the door panel until you feel one of the clips, pry the clip up and repeat the process until all the clips have been pulled. then lift the panel upward to slid it out of the space between the top of the door and the window. dont pull it out hard because you have to unclip the wires leading to the switches before you are done, once those are off you should have the panel successfully removed. if there are any screws in the panel they will more than likely be around the basket section at the bottom of the door.

Need to remove the drivers door trim panel to determine problem with raising mechanism. John Chaney

Usually a broken cable, or the motor. To remove the trim, remove the speaker, then remove all the screws from inside the door handles. Then remove the screws around the edges of the trim panel. Prise the edge of the trim panel away from the door, and continue to pull until all the plastic clips are loose. Then just lift the panel up and off of the window ledge. Unplug electrical from the back of the switches, and the panel is then separated from the vehicle.

Replacing the window lifter is quite simple. Just unbolt the vertical chanels, and the motor, and the whole thing comes out. You can get refurbished lifters with the motor quite affordably from the dealer, or the auto parts store.

Drivers side door wont open from inside, window problems

It is most likely a rod has fallen off inside the door. You may have to use a coat-hanger to read down inside and pull back on door latch to open it up.
Then after it is opened, remove screws on inner door panel, remove window/lock controls, take a big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry next to the plastic tabs holding on door panel. Remove door panel and put window back on track , and replace or reattach door handle rods.

Drivers side window wont close - completely open

If other windows work, it won't be the fuse. Probably switch on door, wiring at door hinge area, or motor. Did you try banging on the inside of the door panel about half way down while hitting the switch, or pulling up on window while someone pushes the switch? That's providing you can get a grip on the glass. Sometimes motor will hit a dead spot & sharp blow to panel, will get it moving again until better fix can be done.

Power window wont close.

You will have to remove your door panel. Be careful not to break the quick fasteners, they take a special tool. But can be done with a flat blade screw driver if careful. Once you have the panel off, you should see the motor and raising arm that can be turned by hand.
