Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Hi, My 2002 Chevy Cavaliers windows have started having trouble rolling up. It seems they roll down fine, it's just when you try to roll them up either the 'button' doesn't work at all or it works intermittently. They will often roll up a couple of inches then quit. Then after I drive for a little while longer a few more inches and so on. Could you maybe tell me what to check first? Thanks, Nikki

I would start by powering to windows up and down with another master switch in the drivers door ,if you still have the same problem the window motors are getting hot and threr not working thats why you have to wait to roll them back up

Try spraying silicone spray down the sides (felt) where window slides (guides) up & down. Put window all the way down, spray them well, top to bottom,then run window up & down a few times. May not cure it, but should help. Be generous with it, but a little clean up later may be needed.

Chevy Malibu 2005 window wont roll up or down.


Sounds like the window regulator broke (the mechanism that moves your window up and down). It has cable to do the lifting the window up and pulling the window down. These cables do break.

The window position is monitered by the softop control module. It sounds like the glass is very dirty and drawing too much amperage during window operation. The soft top is electro hydraulic. The roll bar is operated normally with hydraulics but it is mechanically released in an emergency situation. 1st make sure your windows are clean and the express(one touch operation) is working-the soft top will not function properly if the windows are not synchronized. Next be sure your roll bar works-hold swith in up position to lock roll bar rams in if they have been deployed. next put your top all the way up. untill windows roll up and try it with the engine running and trans in nuetral- if it still does not work mechanically secre rear of top with tool provided in your tool kit the owner's manual will tell you how to do this. good luck
