Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

The driver side window of my chevy cavalier stopped working. I have to put up the window by hand and the window rolls down by itself if I go over a pothole or speed bump. I can hear the window motor when using the switch but the window does not respond.

You window regulator is broken. For power windows you have a motor and a regulator. The motor obviously powers the window up and down, but the regulator is what the window actually sits on and moves the window up or down. Sometimes the regulators can brake where they connect to the motor and that is what makes it so you can hear the motor working but the window doesn't mve. A broken regulator also leads to the window falling unexpectedly (like right when you are about to roll into a car wash, that's when it happened to me!). You probably can't find a regulator at your auto parts store but check anyway. You can normally pick them up on ebay or a junkyard (even online junkyards). I would get a regulator with motor not without. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

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...


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.
