This system uses a cable driven mechanism. If the motor is still working, the cable has broken or become dislodged from the gear assembly. Either way, once this happens, it is almost impossible to get the correct function back either due to kinks in the cable or incorrect winding, etc. The easiest and most cost efficient thing to do is to either purchase new(aftermarket autoparts stores will carry this cheaper than the dealer) or call a local salvage yard in your area. Let me know if you need instructions and diagrams.

I have a 1994 Toyota Camry and the power window on the passenger side has gone down, under power. Then nothing would happen when I would pulled up on the switch on the driver side main switch and the also...


more than likely one of the switches are bad (down side of switch works but up side of switch dont) being as the switches are wired together if one goes bad other one won't work either take the switch out one of back doors should be same as front passenger door put rear switch in front passenger door if works then u know front door switch is bad if it doesn't then drivers door switch is bad
u replaced window regulator Did that come with motor too??? if not check to see if motor is good
there is two wires going to motor cut isolation back on wires and using some jumper wires attach one wire to positive terminal of a 12 volt battery attach other wire to negative terminal of battery window should move up or down reverse connections and window should move other way

My driver side window does not go up or down but the motor works when i push the up or down buttom it makes noise like its moving but the window does not move


Remove the door panel to see if the window has come off the track. This is the only way you can see what is actually happening. If nothing looks loose then remove the lift motor and inspect the drive gear.

Electronic window will not close


With the car running and the door open and the switch pushed to up beat on the door, Inside outside try anything to shake the motor in the door. The other windows work? Does it make a sound as you work the switch? Like trying to go down but not up? Which door is it the answer is different dependinding if it's the driver door or the passender side or the driver rear? The switches fail after you pour a little beer or Pop in them and they'll have to be replaced. Wires break if nothing happens up or down and the door hindge area is where the problems gets found

Electric window 1991 F150 ...351


If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.
