Too manny motors bad??? Sounds like a bad ground connection run another ground wire to the door shell see if this works better! Resistance in a ground circuit can over heat a motors wiring.
Do you here a snap when you move any of the window motor switches? might just be useing a control module,and you cant here it click!

The rear RHS door window is not working on a Mazda BT 50 4x4 double cab 3.2 2010 model, what should I check before assuming the winder motor should be replaced?


1st-check the fuse
2nd-try operating window from drivers door and rear right door to confirm its maybe not the window switch thats faulty
3rd-when pressing the switch if you can hear the motor running then the mech is broken
4th- if you can slide the window up and down almost half way by hand replace the motor and mech
5th-after removing the door panel unplug the motor and using a volt meter confirm that power is present when activating the switch

I have a fiate punto grande and the offside electric window keeps failing had at garage three times now but still keeps failing


Would I be correct if I said.....when you operate the switch to get the window to lower it will do it and then may stop? or is it when the window has lowered that it has trouble closing? Has the switch been replaced? what wires are being soldered? Is there a bad earth connection to the motor? Unfortunately Fixya does not provide an accompanying video option.

PAX side front window inop for the third time in 5 years...shop replaced the motor twice...has to be another problem


Doubt the motors failed at all

I would believe that a couple window regulators failed

There a two things you "never" do with vehicles

Allow a shop inside your doors, to work on window issues
& allow them to replace or as they do (butcher) your brake tubing

Work on it yourself
That way it is once & done (properly)

1996 Ford Aerostar Van front windows will not roll up or down. When you try to roll EITHER window UP, you can hear the motor trying to work and the interior lights dim as you are doing it, but the windows...


Its unusual for both doors to fail at the same time, but not impossible.
Since you say the lights dim and you can hear noise in the doors we will assume the motors have voltage and ground.
You would need to remove the motors from the regulators to see if the motors are faulty or if the problem is with the regulators or tracks.

94 camaro right Door power window stop working


Check fuses. if all good, remove door panel , find 2 prong connector pluged into power window motor. Remove plug and connect test light to ground. probe both pins in the plug while pressing up and down on window switch. Pressing down should illuminate the test light on one of the pins, and pressing up on the switch should illuminate the test light while probing the other pin. If they do not i would replace the master switch in the drivers door. If you do have power at the plug then replace the window motor.

I have a 1997 ford explorer, and it has power seats and power windows.and the windows and seats will not move.all of the fuses have been checked and are good.


If the fuses are checked ok then there is a possibility that either driver door side main switch or the window regulator or the window motor is gone faulty.
If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2) 
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2005 Chrysler Town & Country. Passenger side window problem.


HAVEK 1005 sounds right on track.... but also try this, usually works well for non functional power windows, specially Caravans.

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

NOW, for the naysayers that says you must replace power window motors etc, at $$$ cost because the above fix does not work, or is not long lasting fix, or less than a "professional fix".... Well then, when the window fails to operate again, apply same fix again at that time.

I have fixed my van this way numerous times (usually once a year), and to all local friends I recommend this fix too, likewise do the same and are happy with the solution.

Passenger power window on 1987 4 runner wont work


I can't read and guess that the passenger door window doe'nt work. The switch on the passenger side will not et the window operate from either switch the master can be bad and it won't work from either switch. The switches are not often a problem compared to jamed windows and burned out or rusted motors. All the wires at the passenger switch are at the master switch except the motor wires for the passenger door, their colors don't change so if one desnt get there electrically the window won't work as this is an old car the door hige area has the wire harnesse and the broken wire is almost always in the driver door hinge area, with the driver kick panel removed find where the wires come out of the tube coming from the door. pull on them one at a time and the one that pulls out is broke. Connect a new wire in the kick area to the wire coathanger wire the new wire thoght the tube into the door take the door panel off find the samcolor wire pull on it and it will come out connect your new wire and its done! Shure there can be more than one wire broke and the switches can fail. Tesw by aking the wire pluged inton the passenger motor put in a test light and try the switches with the key on one direction will light one wire and the other direction the other wire. noting the color of the wires plug the motor back in and find them at the door swich in the passenger door put power and ground from a battery chager jumper cables or ajump box on the motor wires reverse the wires and try again if it still doesnt work and makes no sound you'll need to change the motor. Most parts stores will have the motor in stock but the driver motor is more popular but it wont fit. Be careful removeing and puting the panels as they are hard to rpair and even herder to find an aceptable replacement. Your parts store or dept store can provide you with the right panel tools. Money changes everything with these tools cheap tools make ahard job harder saving old panels is diffacult with the best tools. Professtional help from a practiceing mechanic may save money time and finished quality. This is a hard job to teach yourself. Do it yourself for the first time with a person who's done it before at leasttill you see how it goes if you have to do this work yourself

2000 Ford Focus electric locks/acuator failure recurring problem


I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.
