It could be a bad window switch, run a jumper wire directly to the window motor from a 12v source to determine if the new window motor will fully go up or down on its own without stopping.

The rear passenger window will not roll up.


Soundls like your window motor went bad. Could also be window regulator or just a bad wiring conection. Take off door pannel and check the connections and the motor. Hope that helps

The back driver side window won't roll up all the way, but will role down. how do i fix it 1993 toyota land cruiser


if the car has power windows,the problem might be the window motor.going down it does not use that much force as to when it goes up.so maybe its overheating and will not work good enough to roll it all the way up.the way i check and see if the motor is going bad is to let the window up as far as it will go,then leave it alone for 10 or 20 minutes,then try to put it up again,but only go up.DO NOT go down then up again.if the window closes all the way,then i would change the window motor cause it will be going out completely soon. hope this solves your problem because it has for me many times,take care. manny

Front passenger power window does not work properly.


Take it to an Auto glass place and they can fix that problem.
If your going to try it you need to remove the inside door panel and look at the window rail fram and check the fasteners that hold the glass to the mounting brace. Inspect the guild rails for the window for any damages and worn parts. 
After inspecting and re tighten all the nut's and bolts and glass lines up. Just put things back together like new. Good luck and buy new door clips for the panel since they break easy.

Drivers window won't role up or down


Hello,

I think I know what your problem is.... It sounds like you need a motor/regulator assembly. There's a cable that attaches the motor to the regulator (part that moves the window up and down ) power is transferred this way. over time the cable breaks allowing the glass to fall to the bottom sometimes and won't go up. electrically it's ok because you can hear the motor run. (good job on the description by the way :) ) you will need to replace the regulator.

If you are technical inclined, you can replace it yourself if you like. most of the work is taking the door panel off. With this kind of stuff I recommend that you don't attempt this one unless you've taking a door panel off before. If you decide to do it, invest in service manual to assist your work. It can be fairly difficult of you've never done one before.

Our 2001 Kia Optima is having trouble with the passenger door. If you want to role it up it won't go up, but if you want to role it down then it just slides down. we mainly need help getting it to go down.


This actually sounds like it off track. Take the door apart and look to see if the window is on track, if its not pop it back in to place and be done with it. 9 times out of 10 its just off track. Most dealers will tell you it needs a new regulaor just to get you to buy new parts and tell you it will take 2-3 hours to fix when in all actuality it will take them 20 mins to take door frame off and pop the window back into place. I would look at this before looking into a new regulator.
