Electric sliding door

The electric sliding door won't work. Appears like no power, and checking with a voltage tester at the motor shows no power getting to the door motor. What else to check for electric sliding door not working. Note - the battery was dead when first noticed the door also didn't work, battery is charged and working now.

Ford focus drivers window stopped working I can't hear the motor going but passenger one is fine


First, use electric-safe penetrating lubricant to lubricate the window switch to see if corrosion has caused the switch to stop making contact.
If that doesn't work, remove the door panel and see if the window motor is getting voltage when the switch is activated. If the window motor is getting voltage when the switch is activated, check to see if the window regulator mechanism has jammed or seized. If the regulator mechanism appears ok, replace the motor.
If the window motor is not getting voltage when the switch is actuated, replace the switch.

Rear window has no power to it


you need to get a voltage tester or multitester to check the supply voltage to the rear window motor which sould be about 12 volts.To get access to the motor you need to open the facia cover of the rear door.Locate the cable going to the motor, then if you can see the connection to the motor put one end of the multitester pronge (red tip one) to the motor cable connection. Put the other multitester pronge (black tip) end to the metal part of the door. The black tester prong tip should touch a bare metal part of the door ,not a painted surface cause electricity cannot flow on painted surface, usually on a hole with screw on the hole.On the motor side you should touch the bare metal part of the motor cable connection with the red tip pronge of the tester. If the multitester registers 12 volts then you got power supply. check cable connection to the motor , and the connection of the motor body to the rear door to see if its tight enough. If it does not work then its the motor that needs to be check or replaced.

Driver window won't work


first thing first check ur fuse for the power window. look at ur car manual to locate the switch box. if the fuse is good check the window motor by removing the door panal then locating it inside the door. use a power tester to see if power is getting to the motor by connecting it to the positive (red) wire connected to the window motor. if its not getting power the change the motor. if it is then you may have a window switch problem. if you have change the motor, switch, and fuse the you make have a wire shortage proble so take it to a payed professional for further advice or service. good luck

How do I check the wiring harness on my 99 ford explorer, the power windows dont work, I replaced the gem and changed relays with my 2000 explorer to see if that would trouble shoot it but they were good...


First you need to do a physical inspection on the wire. You need to check loose connections or exposed conductors. You then have the option to remedy by refitting loose connections, covering the exposed conductors with electrical tape or replacing the wire.

It would be best to have a multi-tester or multimeter. This should include a continuity tester and a voltmeter. With the use of the continuity tester you can put probes at both ends of the wiring and listen if the meter would beep which mines the lines are not cure or breakage between the ends. A voltmeter is used to measure if you are getting voltage to the end or the wires or the terminals of the switch or the motor. Weak voltage may mean a weak battery or the wires are not connected securely at either end. No voltage at the end of the motor but power to the side of the switch where the wires go to the battery means a problem with the switch. Others use a test light which is like a continuity tester when it lights up.

It does looks like a wiring issue the way you described the problem but it is a good idea to test.

Electric windows dont move up or down on my honda accord


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.

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.

I have a 99 montana passenger side sliding door dont work. Hit either button all it does is clicks and motor seems to be fine.. I went to junk yard bought complete new motor and everything that comes...


I would check the overhead buttons there are two one opens the door, and the other beside it that shows the van crossed out, disables the electric sliding door feature. try playing with that, Also remember, that vehicle must be in PARK for the electric sliding door to open. Make sure the power lock on that door is working, and check the child safety lock when you have it open by the doors catch. Hope that Helps You.

99 chevy blazer lt front passenger window will not work up or down. from either driver switch or passenger switch


Hi: If other windows work then it can't be FUSE. I would take off the door panel and use a 12 volt test light to see if power is getting to the front passenger door motor (make sure power control switches are attached, key on position). If power... then hot wire the window motor using a 12 volt battery to see if it works. Hook + and - wires from battery directly to the motor, reverse them to make motor go up or down. To remove door panel pop electrical control up for the front and lift out then disconnect plugs. Use 7 MM socket to remove 2 screws under where handle is located. A Phillips screw driver removes the door handle cover. Pull on door panel to pop off, whole process takes under 5 minutes. If motor works and no power to motor from drivers door then there is a broken wire in circuit or the drivers control unit is not working. NEXT... disconnect drivers door control unit and check to see which brass terminals have power (key on position), note them... then put 12 volt power from battery to a terminal from plug that was attached to the passenger door motor, using your test light check drivers door plug to see if there is power to any terminals you DID NOT MARK as having power, if power then you know the circuit is good, do this with both wires from passenger door motor plug. (A circuit tester can be used as well). If continuity then the problem is in the drivers door control unit. If no continuity then a break in the wires to the passenger door, breaks usually occur between the body A pillar and where the wires go to the door as it flexes there every time the door opens or closes. Hope this helps, rate so I know if it is worth my while helping out on here.. thanks...
