Police interceptor. How can I make the rear power windows work again?

I suggest trying the following: put window down using switch on driver's door. Then hold passenger switch in the down position for 5 seconds. Then put window up using switch on driver's door. Then hold passenger switch in the up position for 5 seconds. Then turn off car and pull key. Put key back in and turn on power. Then test rear window switches to see if they reset.

It may be that the rear power window regulators/ switches have gone out for each door and need to be replaced. Also, check to make sure that power is being received at each switch. If no power, they can be tested by getting power independently to each one. If you are not a handy DIYer, getting them checked out by an experienced mechanic may be the best way to go.

I have a BMW 325i and i guess my passenger window regulator is broken or the window is just off track but the window is stuck all the way up and there is no way for me to force the window down myself....

I jus noticed the regulator assemby or the black parts that guide the window up and down is stuck. When I roll the window up and down the motor moves and that's bout it. Without it coming down I won't be abl to get the bolt to get the regulator out. This is my fisrt time doing it on my own. Please help. How do I unbolt the motor? Any manual way to put the window down?

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

Front passenger-side window stuck in down position.Is it most likely a motor,track,or electric fuse problem?

oscar, just in case it is the regulator, buy a new one at a parts store or on ebay. then take the car to an auto glass store and have them put it in for you. they have the tools, the experience, and the fasteners needed. if it turns out it was only a fastener, then you have already replaced the regulator which will go in a year or two anyway and you will know just how to do this when your driver side fails.
I have had 5 saturns, the window regulators rarely make it to 8, the wiper motors and automatic transmissions are nothing to write home about either.

The window motor keeps going out.

Passenger window will go up but not down

If you have only two wires going to the motor, I bet that you have power to only one of the two terminals when you put the switch to the down position. The reason is that the other terminal is then connected to ground. This situation reverese when you want the window to go up. If you have power in both wires, you are missing a ground. The relay is a good place to go next.

Good Luck

Master window switch

Have you checked the switch to see if 12 volts is coming out of the switch, hold it in the up or down position and test the pins, 2 will light, the 12 volts to the switch and the one out to the motor, if the out to motor is ok then either the new motor is no good or you have a bad door ground.
