Power windows -window falls inside the door, won't go up

I owned a Jeep prior to my PT Cruiser, and had the windows fall in on the Jeep.
It just happened to me today on my PT. Is there a way for me to fix this without needing to go to the dealership?
Must be a Chrysler/Jeep thing!

On the inside trim, you can 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. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see the cause.
It could be the window has fallen off it's base (not likely), a cable has disconnected or broken (most likely), motor burned out (maybe)

I have an 06 pt cruiser when I bought it couldn't open door from inside. Suddenly door opens from inside and window won't come down what's the problem


Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the power and ground at the master switch mount in the dash. Pin 12 is power at key on and pin 4 is the ground.

2. Next try driving the left front window by applying power to pins 13 and 14, switch polarity should drive the window up and down. If not, check for broken wires in the between "A" pillar and the door, then gain access to the window motor and try applying right at the motor.
Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the outside door handle switch. It should ground the Orange/Yellow wire when the handle is raised. Tech Tips: The power window should drop slightly whenever the door is opened. The ensures a tighter seal to the convertible top.

How to remove rear door panel on my 2008 pt cruiser


I think the rear windows are designed to only go down so far as the body design of the rear doors won`t allow them to completely go down. the doors are a different shape than the front doors.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch


If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

How do you fix power windows on a jeep grand cherokee. window wont go up but theres power


Need to buy a new window regulator (about $100 at autoparts store).
(leave your windo up and tape it to the window frame so it does not fall)Take interior door panel off, gently remove any sound or moisture barriers, remove old regualtor through the large service holes in door frame, (there will be clips you have to remove to release the regulator) do not let the glass fall (you may have to remove the glass by taking out thru the top of the door), install new regulator, re-install other parts in reverse order.

My passenger side window doesn't roll up and it slides down into the door


Before the failure, did it make any knocking or griding noises? When you operate the button does the motor make it's normal noise? Did the window become loose and fall down inside the door abruptly? Some vehicles have issues with the "window regulator". This is the cabling device that hoists and lowers the window on the inside rail. Some automakers use plastic bits to keep the window on the rail. If those become loose or break, the window will fall off the tracks. Continued operation of the window will cause the regulator (cables, gear or motor) to fail. If you want to attempt a DIY fix, remove the door cover (a mechanic will usually call this a door card) and see if the window is off the rails. Good luck.
