    Will try that thanks but it is all the windows x4 that don't work. Would it be the front drivers door with the fault? Or are they all individually powered? Thanks again.

    I was basing my advice on the humming noise you mentioned - which I interpreted as the motor trying to move the window but the window was not moving.
    If all four windows are not moving, then the control in the driver's door would be a logical place to start troubleshooting. But all four windows are powered individually, and generally do not all fail at the same time.

Get some spray silicone from an auto parts store or department store with an automotive section. If the windows are down, or partly down, spray a small amount of the silicone spray (using the straw on the spray nozzle) down the window tracks, especially the rear track. If the window won't go down, have someone operate the switch while you use both hands on either side of the window to 'push' it down, then spray along the tracks. Once they start moving on their own, spray a small amount again, and exercise the windows up and down until they operate freely.

My 2010 chevy traverse right front window doesn't work, just makes buzzing noise from the switch, what causes this

Window is stuck and the noise is probably the window motor slipping on the drive gear. This will happen a lot with windows that are not used often or have dirt embedded in the channels, and exercising them once in a while is a good idea.

You should take it a shop to have it fixed. You can try opening the door and, with hand on each side of the window, try pushing down while pressing the down button to get it working. But be warned - if there is a mechanical problem, it may stick again in an open position and you may not be able to get it up.

Right side power window on 2005 Toyota Matrix will not work. Went down fine, drove home and won't go up.

Is there any type of noise when pressing/pulling the UP button? If there is any type of electric motor noise, possibly the window regulator is faulty. Pull the door panel off to inspect the motor and regulator.

2001 volkswagon cabrio power windows on driver side wont go up and passenger window wont go down, stopped working all at the same time

The Cabrio electric window issues are most often related to a bad Window regulator. My wife owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving drivers window. After inspecting it, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved). Additionally, her passenger window stopped working, however, if you listened carefully, you could here a click sound when the button was pushed. I took this door apart as well, removing the regulator, I found it was jammed. Carefully, I removed the cover concealing where the cable rolls up, and was able to free the pressure. Once this was done, the window worked fine.

Sometimes electric windows work and sometimes they dont

Depending on how good you are with repairing cars there is a solution that could possibly work you have to remove the switch case with the switches by placing a thin screwdriver in front of the case and pushing the spring loaded clip back at the same time lifting the case slightly upwards once removed remove the connectors by pressing the release clip in the centre of the connector now get hold of some contact cleaner and try to spray underneath the switch you press, cleaning the connection inside switch normally solves the problem.

Driver side window wont go up or down has manual operation . I dont have an electric window operation.

the regulator is probably stripped out, or regulator broke off of glass track. Interior panel removal is required for inspection. Parts are available from your dealer

Slow Electric window on Nissan Almera Tino 2002.

If you spray silicone in the tracks from the top open window and the speed changes faster I would say the channels are too tight. If no change then the voltage at the motor needs to be checked at 13+ volts. If not then the wiring at the door bend needs to be checked for fraying. If a garage does this job, then they should fix it right. It is not right. You paid for it.

Driver Window

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
