Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

3 Answers

One of the rear passenger windows won't roll up. It "rolled" down after a short drive. The motor still works but it won't roll the window up (power windows). How can I at least roll up the window or fix it myself?

    tedpineywood-Thanks for the quick reply. It is very helpful. I do have a follow-up question.
    Can I get the window up before I go to the dealer? I drive my little girls to day care everyday and I'm hoping to have the window up when I drive them. Or am I just too hopeful?
    Thanks

You can try to push the window up with you hands while someone pushes the window switch for it to go up. if that doesn't work you will need to take the panel off and look at the regulator. There are usually two to four screws and then the rest of it pops out. screws are in the hand rest and door hand, switches are clipped in and will have to be unclipped from the inside of the panel. Just be careful when popping of the panel. if the regulator is missed up a temporary fix is to push the window up and cut a piece of wood to hold the window in place until you can get the new part, a new regulator should cost no more then $200. It is not that hard to work on or fix. The hardest part is removing the panel. Hope this helped tim P.S. if you are able to push it up with out taking the panel off you can stick a screwdriver in between the window and the seal this should hold it in place.

You need to replace the Window Regulator. Call the dealer, I'm sure they have plenty in stock.

    I dont think you would be able to get it up, trying to get it up may damage the window it you use anything to pry on it. I just dont want you to make it worse.

1995 Ford Taurus front passenger window went down and won't roll up


Remove the switch panel and check to see there is 12V power there.. If there is Push the switch and see if the power comes out of it to drive the motor, if the power is not present check the wire back looking for the short.. usually if the power is missing none of the windows will work. look where the wires come out the door post to the door. look at fuses, If there is power and it does not come through the switch when you push the switch. the switch might be bad. in which case jump the switch to roll window up and buy a new switch (rock auto.com) if you apply 12v power and the window still will not go up.. you will need to replace the motor. not a hard job. you must remove door panel and remove regulator and motor and replace and reinstall. either junk yard part, craigslist part or new at Rock auto.. Post a comment and let us know what happens.

Soundls like your window motor went bad. Could also be window regulator or just a bad wiring conection. Take off door pannel and check the connections and the motor. Hope that helps

I have the exact same problem on a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004. The rear passenger window rolls down only from the rear passenger window and won't go up or down from the front. It has to be in the wiring because the problem was intermittent initially and a new window motor does the exact same thing. If you figured it out or have the wiring diagram please let me know.

The first thing that I would do is check for electricty at the motors them sel and work your way back.If there is elec. at the window motor it's self susspect a motor problem.Remove the motor to see if it spins (but it dosen't me its good it could be week)next check for binding in the window mecanism.
