If you can hear the motor turning on the window, then your window motor is fine. In all likelihood, your main window switch (driver's door) is bad and requires replacement. I would also check each individual window to make certain they open and close with each window's switch.
Another potential problem could be the window hardware that moves your window up and down. The only way to determine if there are problems with the hardware is to remove the door panel.
If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening to the window, you need a regulator. If nothing is happening when you use the switch and you have determined that power is getting to the motor you need the motor. Check the price of both though, sometimes it is not a great difference to buy the whole unit, and if you can it is a lot easier to replace.
Hope this helps
Assuming power windows
Do you hear the motor running? - If not bad fuse, motor, electrical connection
If you hear the motor - Can you move the window my hand? Could be a bad window regulator (a cable and pulley that raises/lower the window - when driven by the motor).
is the motor turning when you press the switch if so when installed can you hear the motor running if so does your car have a cable style window regualtor if so your regualtor may be bad. but if that is not the case first try running the motor straight off of the battery one wire to ground the other to postive if the motor turns your good but if you hook it up to the oem wiring and it does not com on replace the switch. just because the drivers side switch for the passenger window works doesn't mean that you can't still have a bad switch.
could be a case of the cable that the motor turns is snaped id say..take off the inside door panel ,shouldnt be to hard ,then activate the switch while looking in,youl soon now exactly what it is,,,,if it is youl need to replace the whole winder including the motor,,get 1 in a breakers yard wont be 2 dear...
Hello, To check to see if its the motor or the switch is simple. Turn the ignition switch on and turn off all noise making things, radio etc. Open your door that has the problem and operate the window switch while you have your ear against the door panel. Listen carefully, you should hear a slight click as you operate the switch. Make sure that the child lock is not on. If you hear it click, the window switch is good and the motor is bad. If it doesn't click, the switch is bad. If the motor clicks but has no movement you will need to replace it. It comes as an assembly with the regulator. You can not buy the motor separately. You do not need to take to a dealer for repair but whoever does it needs to know these cars. I hope this helps. CYA, Gator241
