POWER WINDOWS NOT WORKING & POWER WINDOW/REGULATOR ISSUES


It can be issue with motor itself. If it's not going up, then how its working down. But still it feels like weak window motor or is issue with power window switch. Get the voltage tested at switch and motor. Also try another working window motor at not working window side.

Bmw 2002x5 my driver side window is not working do i need to replace the regulator or the motor ???as there is a price difference for the part of about 50 pounds


You will have to check the voltage of the motor.With the window switch depressed check the voltage at motor.It should give 12 volts.If there is no voltage, then its motor causing the problem.But if there is proper voltage, then its regular causing the problem.Also check and confirm, the window switch is receiving the voltage and switch wirings are intact and not getting loose.In the regulator there are metal brackets, they tend to get bend and this blocks the motor from running.So check the brackets too.If they are bent, then get it straightened.-------------If the regulator checked faulty,worn out bent ten it has to be replaced.-----------

My rear power window is stuck open.. The button on the headliner still opens and closes the right side window but the left on will not shut. Also the rear wiper motor quit working..


if you have already checked your fuses and since the button on the door will not open or close the window and the driver's switch will not open or close the window either then chances are that the window regulator motor is bad. take the door panel off and unhook the wire to the motor using a voltage meter push the button and see if you get 12 volts if you do replace the window regulator motor. you may have to switch out the whole window regulator. do the same with the rear wiper motor take the back panel off and remove the wire from the motor connect your voltage meter to the motor and turn on the rear wiper it may be intermitting so wait a minit and see if you have voltage if so replace the motor. if not replace the switch.

Where is the rear window relay located on the 2002 Ford Explorer sport trac. Not the rear door windows but the very back window.


  • The power rear window is inoperative (Explorer Sport Trac only)
  • Circuitry.
  • Battery Junction Box (BJB) fuse 3 (30A).
  • Central Junction Box (CJB) fuse 20 (7.5A).
  • Power rear window control switch.
  • Rear window glass motor.

NOTE: The power rear window motor is not on the multiplex link. Any diagnosis and testing carried out on the power rear window will not involve the GEM module. NOTE: The reinitialization procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.

How do you remove the power window motor on a 1990 325i BMW?


Hi you did not mention which side of power window and why you want to take it off. but base on my experience, if the window is inoperative the common problem is a faulty window regulator only and not necessary to replace the motor. Regarding how to take it off, you have to take off the door trim moulding, the one close to inner door opening handle. start to take it off from the edge opposite close to handle. then using # 20 Torx bit, remove two screws in there,then take off the side airbag badge to access one screw under that badge. then have a look for other screw around side pocket and remove side clips including the top side using plastic trim remover or plat screw.when all the side clips already loos, pull the trim upward and disconnet all the wire connection, door handle cable. then use a blade to remove carefully the sound insulator. then you can access the motor or regulator. use 10 and 8 mm socket and torx bit no 27 or 30 to dismantle the motor.
I hope it can help you.thanks
