I'm not sure how you would jump it with a screwdriver? You'll need to remove the door panel and unplug the window motor. Then using jumper wires supple a power and ground to the motor. if it doesn't go up switch the power and grounds. If it still doesn't go up than there is a problem with the wiper motor.

Or if the switch is physically broken just replace the switch.

Heard loud bang and now the front driver side door window does not roll up. I can hear the motor working, but the window still does not roll up. One week later the exact same thing happened to the front...


Possible that the mechanism has jumped off the linkage . You will need to remove the flap and get access to the window winding mechanism. You will be able to notice the main motor mechanism which has either jumped off - as you heard the sound- or there is a gear that has come off the motor drive.
A resetting of the winder to keep the motor drive coupled to the window winding mechanism should solve. Also make sure that the glass channels are clear and free , not giving friction to the mechanism to jump off.

Power window on 1999 pontiac grand prix gt 2 door driver side broke. motor still works but window wont stay up.


what I would recommend is that you will have to test the window actuator first. You will need to remove the door panel to get at the actuator. From there, just jump the actuator to see if the window goes up or down. Don't worry about which terminal is positive or negative, they are switched back and forth by the control switches.

Hood cable broke any way to release the hood without it


If the cable broke right at the internal handle you can sometimes grab the end of it with a vise grip. If it broke in the middle you may have to remove the grill, and then remove the locking mechanism on the bottom side of the radiator support. Sometimes you can trip the release from there with a screwdriver. But I would advise taking the grill out to get to it.

My drivers side window will not go up or down anymore. All the other windows will go up and down from the main switch on the drivers side door. What can I do to make it work?


probly need to take the door apart and see whats keeping it from rolling up. If the motor went bad theres your problem but if a clip or something broke loose and fell it may have wedged itself in the lifting mechanism

Drivers side door power locks and windows control doesn't work.


PULL THE DOOR OFF MAKE SURE THE 2 LITTLE DOOR HANGERS ARE CONNECTED TO THE SWITCH MECHANISM IF IT IS. THEN YOUR SWITCH IS BROKE. GO TO SCHUCKS AND ASK THEM IF THEY CAN ORDER YOU A WHOLE NEW DOOR LOCK SWITCH ASSEMBLY. REWIRE AND TAA-DA!!!

Toyota Celica 1988 - Drivers window not working.


Check under the Hood and see if you can Locate the Fuse Relay Box. There is a Relay in this Box for the Windows. Replace this Relay. You really need to try and Locate the Same Model Switch for the Drivers Door as that is the Problem there. Try and Find a Dealership in the States and see if they will Ship you one. Should not be a Problem. Just do a General Search for Dealerships in the USA and Pick. Let me know if the Relay does not work so we can go another Route for Repair. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

THE POWER WINDOWS ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE OF MY 99 EUROVAN CAMPER DO NOT OPERATE. THE WINDOW ON PASSENGER SIDE OPERATES NORMALLY FROM PASSENGER SIDE, BUT WILL ONLY GO DOWN WHEN ATTEMPT MADE TO OPERATE IT FROM...


This is essentially correct. A common problem with earlier models of Eurovans is the wiring through the door boot. Check this first as the wires tend to become brittle and break. This can save you alot of hassle in getting the door panel off and inspecting the motor mechanism. A good sign is if when you press the window switch you hear a little "click" in the right front of the dash. That is the window relay engaging. Power is getting to that point in the circuit but can't make it back through to the door.

Drivers side rear power window not working


the window wouldnt do that as a sign of defect. most likely the motor went out. but also maybe the clips on the windows bottom broke causing it to fall. the only way to know for sure would be to open it up it could come down to being something as simple as a switch
