Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara

1 Answer

Power window stuck

Car power window wont go all the way up.
The window usually operates well when lowered. Yet when trying to move it up sometimes it stops mid-way.

I initially tried to lubricate the slots on either side with WD40 - this helped for a few days.

    I noticed as you suggested that pushing on the window upwards as the button is pressed helps the window to go all the way up.
    Weak motor? An electrical motor either works or not - how can it be weak? is there a reason for that?

My 2003 honda accord will not go into gear while car is running.I have had no problems with it, then all of a sudden cant move out of drive way.Stick shift


Almost certain to be a clutch problem - the clutch plates aren't separating because either: -

The operating mechanism has failed,
or the clutch pilot bearing is seized (if fitted),
or the splined shaft has rusted and preventing the driven plate moving away from the flywheel,
or the clutch is contaminated with enough oil to stick the components together (unlikely),
or the normally shiny friction faces have formed a layer of corrosion effectively welding the clutch components together - this can happen in a short space of time in damp conditions in a similar way to how some parking brakes stick.

Only you can judge which of these is the most likely. If the operating mechanism has failed the clutch operation will almost certainly feel different to usual, lighter, less resistance to the pedal or the pedal having limited or no travel due to being lower than usual.

If the pedal seems ok it is perhaps just stuck. I have lost count of the number of times I have needed to start a car in gear and drive and change gear without the clutch until it eventually frees. Sometimes there is no choice but to be extremely rough with it. Only once have I needed to remove a gearbox to fix the problem.

Hi all,hyundai get some times power window doesn't roll back when I open door panel then It roll up for a while it does roll down but don't roll up any way to fix this


Sounds like a power window motor. Sometimes this will help diagnose your problem for the mechanically uninclined. While holding the switch to power the window while the window is stuck, just bank on the inside of the door panel for that window without causing damage. Sometimes this will jar the motor and it will start to move. This is a sign of a bad power window motor. It may also be a switch as the alternative problem but most likely the power window motor. I recommend replacing the window motor and window regulator at the same time. You can usually buy both together.

My power window will not work is there a fuse that controls all windows


There is a fuse for windows. However, if only one window is non operational, there is either a short specifically affecting that window or the motor for the window is broken.

Toyota highlander window opens by itself


You don't mention HOW she "puts the window back up" - does the power window work OK when raising or lowering the window.
There may a short circuit causing the window motor to turn on.
Let me know if the window operates normally sometimes; and whatever information or description you might have.

My gas guage is stuck on 3/4 tank being full what do i need to do to fix it


If the problem happened right after you replaced the pump, I would say the sending unit in the tank is not connected to the harness.
You could check the circuit to the gauge at the connector for the tank.

My power windows stopped working


The power window system operates electric motors, mounted in the doors, which lower and raise the windows. The system consist of the conrol switches, the motors, regulators, glas mechanism and associated wirring.
Perform checks
1. Check fuses for proper operations, blown fuse can cause windows to stop operating.
2.Check with voltage meter your power windo switches.
3.Each motor is equiped with an internal circuit breaker, this prevents one stuck window from disabling the whole system.
4.The power windows will only operate when ignition key is ON. In addition, manu models have a window lock out switch at the master control switch which, when activated, disables the switches at the passenger's windows. Always check these items before troubleshooting a window problem
5. These procedures are general in nature, so if you can;t find the problem using them, take vehicle to the dealer service department or other properly equipped repair facility.
6. If windows wont operate always check the fuses and circuit breaker first.
