Fix windows they wont go down any more,, fuses look ok


There can be several reasons. When you say you "fixed" the windows, it makes me wonder what was wrong with them before you started. The part inside the door is usually a window regulator. It has teeth to be moved by the gear on the electric window motor. The position of the regulator teeth is suppose to match the position of the window. If you imagine setting the window 1/2 open, then that is as far as the window will rise when the electric window motor cranks. The electric motor gear will only travel so many turns for each cycle of the motor switch.


Mixing motors on the wrong side of the car is something else that can go wrong if you change W motors. The W motors are not the same from front to front or rear to rear. They are often compatible diagonally (right front to left rear) (left front to right rear).


Finally, you can have a switch box for the auto up/auto down feature inside the door panels. You need to check for power at the W motor and then backtrack.

Why rear windows on 2001 chevy tracker won't work ?


Would seem your into the inner doors & have a partial
grasp on things

Now you fix all door windows one shot

#1 Test all switches,ohm meter unplugged or volt meter with power
#2 Test all motors with battery voltage direct -- DC motor will run either direction-- can't hook up wrong
#3 Window Regulators -you know about them (Unless they are broken-you said they are tight)
#4 Do you have good ground side wiring & battery voltage at all
switches & motors
#5 Last resort--unhook the cables & work on freeing up the
glass & window guides etc then you will have found out if the
regulators are the issue

Chrysler 1999 Sebring rear window motor


I fixed my rear quarter panel window (driver's side) at no cost. I removed the assembly/window and thought I would have to replace the assembly and motor. Once I saw the price I began to investigte the problem with the original part. I removed the window from the assembly. (did not want to break it) I found that the cable was binding on the main pulley connected to the motor. I removed the three screws that held the pulley/motor housing. I removed the motor and plugged it back into the power supply and it worked. I realigned the cable and reinstalled the housing and motor. I plugged it into the power supply and it ran, but noticed that the cable was somewhat loose causing the cable to bind on the main pulley. If I kept tension on the cable it seemed to operate correctly. To keep tension on the cable, I put a plastic tie strap around the two cable parts just above the bottom cable guide (about 1 1/2 inch above cable guide) - pulling the strap until there was sufficient tension on the cable (not real tight). The strap kept tension the cable and the tension kept the cable from coming off the pulley when the widow operated. I bolted the window back on (do not over tighted the bolts or the window may break). Reinstalled everythng - checked the window alignment with the front window - tested the operation and it worked like new. I put everything back together and was able to fix my non working window for the price of a plastic tie and a couple of hours of figuring out the problem. I think I could do the whole process in less than an hour now. I would check out this solution before spending 175 for a new motor or 250 for a new assembly. CountryRidgeBBQ@aol.com

My rear power window is stuck open.. The button on the headliner still opens and closes the right side window but the left on will not shut. Also the rear wiper motor quit working..


if you have already checked your fuses and since the button on the door will not open or close the window and the driver's switch will not open or close the window either then chances are that the window regulator motor is bad. take the door panel off and unhook the wire to the motor using a voltage meter push the button and see if you get 12 volts if you do replace the window regulator motor. you may have to switch out the whole window regulator. do the same with the rear wiper motor take the back panel off and remove the wire from the motor connect your voltage meter to the motor and turn on the rear wiper it may be intermitting so wait a minit and see if you have voltage if so replace the motor. if not replace the switch.

No power to rear parking lights front parking lights ok.


Try unhooking one of the battery cables and leave it off for at least 20 minutes. When you hook it back up the computers should re-boot. That has solved problems for me with heater, interior lites, power windows, AC, day time running lites, power mirrors, CD player, and wipers on GM autos and S-10 PU and Dodge trucks. None of the switches are connected to the device they control anymore. The switch tells the computer to open the window and the computer send a signal to the window motor. When the computer gets confused strange things will happen or not happen. Of course you may have to re-set your radio stations.

The right rear power window will not stay up


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal and access the insides of the door. You can the access the regulator, motor

1999 buick regal. driver window doesnt work and driver rear window won't work but I can hear the motor on back window???


It sounds like the rear window problem is the regulator which is cable driven and the motor attaches too. check and see if your cable is binding up or if the wheels on the track are broken. the front window could be a bad switch or the module you need to test and see if you have power to the front window motor. if you do have power it could also possibly be the motor try to jump power and see if it goes up or down if it does then the motor is good.
