Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

My wife was rolling up the power driver side window on a 2001 dodge grand caravan. The window went up half way then started to slow down and struggle to make it all the way up. She had to help pull the window up in order to get it closed. Now the window doesn't work. The switch still makes an ''electrical clicking'' sound when depressed.

Replace the regulator/motor combo in your door. Not a fun project but do-able for the able do-it-yourself'er. You can buy a Dorman branded aftermarket unit from Carquest or Napa. Stay away from the CSK/O'reilly's and Autozone stuff - they are ****. Also stay away from mail-order or online items from SPAL. They are also terrible quality as well.

Hope that helps. Nothing else will solve this problem without first replacing that unit and lubricating the tracks while you have it apart with a good sil-glyde or white lithium grease.

When my window rolls down the cable snaps loose that rolls the window down. i just replaced the motor on the window


normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). Autopartswarehouse.com (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!
