If you hear the motor, and the window does not go up, you need what is called a window regulator. You can but them sometimes with out a motor to save a few dollars, but I don't recommend it. Buy the one with the motor already in it. It can be a trip to install your motor on the new regulator.

Also this is not a terribly expensive labor charge to install, you do need a little expertise and some special tools to install it so I would recommend you take it to a shop you trust.

Hope this helps.

if you dont hear it buzzyng in there, check with multimeter if youre getting power to it, if yes, check the button. if you can open it up use the working button. if it dont work, then its your window motor.

Automatic windows


the click you are hearing is the relay for the window motor. if it wont go up or down it is most likely the window motor that has gone bad and needs replaced.

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

The window may have come of the track, if you can hear the motor, it's probably fine. If the window moves around freely, it's most likely of track.

Mt window wont go down on my driver side. you can hear the motor trying to go but the window is not moving


It is probably off track. You will have to take the side panel off to get access to it. Take the plastic and foam out. The motor may be stripped. It would run but it wouldn't push the window up.

Hi, the reason you hear the motor running but the window wont go back up is because the window regulator is bad. you will need to go to a parts store and get a replacement. you can get a replacement at Advance Auto Parts for $72.99. the part number is 741-766.
