2000 Freelander-window stuck in down after cable replace

We replaced rear window tailgate cables on my 2000 Freelander. The rear window was in the up position. We pressed the window down and it went down. We pressed up and the window stayed in the down position. Is the motor bad? Do we need to recalibrate? Why is the window stuck in the down position?

Firstly check the wiring then motor is only working one way that means that the power is not being reversed to put it back up, switch the wires around from the switch if it go's back up then you know there is a wiring fault.

hope this helps

The L/R Handbook explains what needs to be done if and when the battery is replaced or disconnected/reconnected. From what you have said, it seems that you need to try the recalibration as per refitting the battery.

I replaced the car battery and the rear window wont go up?


The L/R Handbook explains the procedure to follow if the battery is replaced. Synchronizing the rear tailgate window is part of that procedure, along with the radio code and central locking.

Hi i have a land rover freelander 00.back door wont open or tailgate windoe wont go down,the rest of the doors work. help


try a hard restart, if that doesnt work then you need a new rear window motor. for the hard restart all you have to do is disconnect the battery cables and touch the positive and negative together for about 8 seconds. if that fails then a new motor it is.

I have the same problem, I pull on the cable, the metal piece moves on the lock acuator but tailgate does not open. Seems like the ACUATOR is stuck in LOCK position and pulling on the cable does not help. Any way to manually force the ACUATOR to open? I can replace the ACUATOR if I can lift the tailgate up but I can't.
