My 2003 Lincoln Navigator front passenger door lock does not raise or lower using lock/unlock switch in car or on keyless entry. I hear a "grinding"sound when I try to open with the unlock...


That noise is due to a failed door lock actuator. This is the electrical device located behind the door panel that is responsible for popping the lock when you press the button. Door lock actuator replacement will eliminate the noise and bring it back to normal operation.

Right rear window jamming. my window goes up and down but when it gets to the stopping point you hear the gears grinding and it just stops


Make sure that the window guides / tracks are clean and clear. It may be that the window regulator is worn or broken. If you can remove the interior door panel, you can check and lubricate this with a light grease. Check a Clymer or Haynes manual for the procedure and or tools needed. If you can help the window to raise with your hands while someone pushes the switch, the motor may need replacing. If you can remove the panel, this is not a really tough job. But try to be sure it is the motor, as most stores do not let you return electrical parts.

Passenger window does not go up or down . window fell in side of door and will not go up . when you push button there is grinding noise inside of door and window does not go up.


sounds like the hardware that holds the window to the bars which raise and lower the window has come undone (a bolt has came off) and the window is no longer attached to the lifting assembly.

while not terribly complicated, this is not a job for one with no knowledge of the mechanics of power windows... but even a stero installer should have the skill to fix this easily and cheaper than a dealer

Driver side passenger window won't raise back up


It is either the motor of the switch. Operate the switch while listening where the sound is coming from in the door. Then while you are trying to raise the window, hit the interior door panel with some force, not enough to break anything, but hard enough to contact the motor. If it is binding it should allow the window to raise. If it is trying to raise it is probably the motor.

Driver side window down and won't come up??


When you push the button to raise the window, do you hear it humming or clicking, or is it dead silent? If it's silent, the motor isn't even trying to raise the window. That's either a blown fuse, a dead window regulator, or a dead window switch. If you hear it clicking or making noises, but not coming up, it's either the regulator is messed up (but not dead), or the window has come off it's guide tracks and can't raise up.

I have this problem and what iI did was pushed to unlock doors until the windows come down half way.( all windows will lower halfway, even sun roof may open) Then I pushed the up button and as the window went up, I help it up by pushing it up. Now I just do not lower that window..
