Nothing should need lubrication. When it quits working, is it after a long period of not being used? Sometimes the window will stick to the weatherstripping, after it sits for a few weeks. Try banging on the door with your hand it just jar things a bit. If that works, try to use the window at least once a week, you just need to drop it two or three inches and roll it back up.
It is possible that you have a bad contact in the switch or motor, but more likely, it is just that the glass has stuck to the weatherstrip.

2007 Kia Optima front vents quit blowing air


If you mean the blower motor is not working at times, it can be the motor, a resistor, or the switch on the dash. Could also be a bad connection in the wiring harness.
When the blower won't work, a mechanic would check for power and ground at the motor.

Power windows inoperable on left side of my 2002 Lincoln towncar Cartier (front and back). The rear window quit working first and then later the front.window quit. After several months they started...


The only thing that is in common with both of those windows is the Master Control Window Switch. (The switch panel on the driver's door) A failure of this switch could possibly be the problem, but it is not real likely that it would affect both windows, and only intermmitently. The more likely cause would be that the window motors on both doors are sticking. Try slamming the door fairly hard while someone is holding the switch. If the window starts working, replace the motor.

Front passenger side window quit working about a year ago. Driver window quit this week. Fuse? Motor? Help.


Sounds like a motor issue. Remove the door panel and check power to the motor whe the switch is pressed. If you have power in both directions the motor is bad.

Front windows don't roll down


Yes, the power window switch is often faulty, because there is some sensitive electronic making that "auto rolled down". The 4x-switch is quite expensive, 260EUR =( So, I make some new connection. The faulty electronic is only for front windows, so now I connect wires so that I can use front windows with read window switch. (Rear windows is still working by those 2xback window switch) which is located between seats. Here is the conncection, at one's own risk. That 4x-window switch has 14-pins connector: Connect the back windows wires 8(blue/white), 9(red/black), 1 (grey/blac ), 2 t(green/white) to the ground wire 4 (black). Front windows wires 14(blue)->8 13(white)->9 3(white/violet)->2 7(black/blue)->1 If the manufacturer didn't use that "auto rolled down" function, there is no worries of power windows. Also illumination of 4x-switch goes down quite soon, leds will be better. Here is a photo if you like replace bulbs to leds: http://www.ptcruiser.fi/ptgalleria/albums/userpics/10010/PT-Cruiser%20Power%20Window%20Switch%20-Lamp%20Replace.jpg

1999 buick regal. driver window doesnt work and driver rear window won't work but I can hear the motor on back window???


It sounds like the rear window problem is the regulator which is cable driven and the motor attaches too. check and see if your cable is binding up or if the wheels on the track are broken. the front window could be a bad switch or the module you need to test and see if you have power to the front window motor. if you do have power it could also possibly be the motor try to jump power and see if it goes up or down if it does then the motor is good.

Right front window not working


If only one window is not working the issue is not with power to the window, there are three things that can cause this, the most common is the control switch, have you tried the window from both switch's, pass door and driver door? next is the window motor itself is defective, and last and least common is a wiring issue to the motor, the door panel will have to be taken ff to repair the window motor if that is the problem, the switch can be replaced without removing the door panel, it just pops out.
