Probably needs a regulator. comes with a new motor and is easy to install. Cost about $130.00 at the parts store. Go on line for instructions to change. Shud take less that an hour

    on ebay a motor and regulator aftermarket should be $40-$50 i suggest checking the wires in the drivers door loom for fray/shorts as this is a common oversight as to problems with power windows.

2000 chev 3500 power windows are not working


Checked fuses? Could be a bad master switch which is on the drivers door. Or bad window motors.

My mazda 3 power window switch not working on master switch,but the other are working.except on front left hand poer window switch


I have a 2005 Mazda 3. The driver's side power window won't go down...the other 3 windows do (from the left door power switch). When I try to open the driver's window, I hear a noise...maybe like a motor switch?

My 2004 pontiac grand prix window it will go down


Does it try to come up, EG is there power being applied when you press the UP switch? if it makes no sound or movement when pressing the UP switch it is probably a worn out switch - available at Pontiac dealers though you may have to order it and wait a few days - have your VIN number for the parts desk and you'll get the part in no time - the switch levers out of the panel - use a plastic tool if possible to prize the switch out so you don't damage the surrounding trim - the cable connector clips off the old switch and goes on the new switch, press the switch home into the recess and jiggle it a bit to make it dead flat - window should work now.
If it IS making an effort to come up then either you have a poor earth or power connection making it so there is not enough power to pull the windows up (which is harder than down due to the weight of the window) -- check the cabling behind the door panel, and as above pull out the switch and check its connector too.
OR... the window is out of alignment and is jamming - putting it back in alignment means taking off the door panel and getting at the bottom of the window runner, loosening the bolt(s) on the bottom of the runner and moving it sideways so it hold the window steady but not tightly, you may have to try having it tighter or looser against the window till you get the best performance - also oil the moving parts/cables of the window mechanism (dont get oil on the glass, it will smear for weeks) to give the best chance of smooth operation.

Driver side window will not go up or down and is open 1/4 in


Have someone test the drivers power master switch,It has to have power in all the time,and when you press the button it should let power and ground go in certain directions to allow the window to work.The switch can be bad even though the other switches work.
