Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

1 Answer

Passenger side window will not go up properly. it goes up a fraction of an inch at a time and then stops and will not move again for 5 or more minutes. I'm wondering if the circuit breaker is cutting out cause the window is partly jammed or isn't rolling freely in its casing

1990 corvette passenger window just stopped working

is the window switch in the locked position. Might not have on this vehicle.
remove the door panel.
might need to take off any handles that would get in the way.
find the motor and remove the connector.
check for any corrosion or discolored pins.
try the switch with a voltmeter connected between the pins.
should read battery voltage.
if not problem is in wiring.
fuses are the easiest to check.
next try putting connector back on motor to test wire.
hold switch on and very slowly open and close door.
if this makes the window move even a fraction of an inch replace wire.
if nothing happens take the motor out and have it tested.
replace motor if bad.
The window switches have a circuit board that can go bad also.
look for charred or cracked board and at connections to wire harness.

1997 f150 with passenger side window off track

You probably need a part called a window regulator. They are put in by glass shops and can be installed while you wait. It is a part you get at a Dealership, sometimes parts stores.

You get into hidden screws and attaching parts and by the time you order anything a glass shop can do it faster.

I had several small C clamps and wood and managed to move my fallen window back into place until the correct part arrived. You would need to place the clamp and wood on a frame piece inside the door. But realize that some of the shock and vibration protections are gone with this improvised method.

Just replaced passenger front window on the 2001 v70. Do not remember if window stops an inch down or does it go all the way down?

I am not exactly sure on this model but most of the time the power windows on the front doors go down all the way. I would check the right passenger side door if it goes all the way down, then most likely the drivers side door should also. Usually the rear windows go down and stop an inch from being all the way down. Some cars are set up to lower the front windows only an inch then by pressing the window down button again, they will continue to roll all the way down.

2003 Nissan Maxima. Passenger power window problem

Same problem on passenger door 92,000 miles. Dealer said he can reset the regulator inside the door by pressing button. I am looking for more information on this problem too. He estimates 1/2 hr (~$50) to do work.

Passenger window on 94 lumina van

If all the other windows work when the passenger window won't move (during the 5 min period), then the passenger side motor is bad. If the motor pulls too much amperage, the circuit breaker that is built into the motor will trip, until it cools down.

2003 Alero passenger window

I would be very suspicious of the drivers master swich. If the window works fine on the other side it's an easy assumption that the window motor and regulator are operative. The switches are usually fairly inexpensive (less then 100.00 ) and easy to install
