Hi!1
Most of the time, the problem is not the motor but the window regulator or elevator assembly. Neither of this items are repairable, a new motor runs for about $55 and a new window regulator assembly runs about $100.
Now, if you need assistance removing the window regulator/motor from the door, let me know.

Rear Driver Power Window


You will have to take the inner door panel off to see if it is the motor or the wiring to it. There would be two wires going to the motor from the switch-one turns the motor one way to raise, and the other wire will turn motor in opposite direction to lower the window, all depending which way the switch is operated. You could take off the connector at the switch and use a testlight to check the wiring: key on, use the switch and see if power is present at the motor. If it is, it must be a worn motor. Consult a repair manual for proper removal procedure of the motor-sometimes the window regulator that the motor attaches to is under spring pressure. If there was no power to the motor, you'll have to trace the wires back to the switch, and possibly on to the master switch to find the problem.

Window wont open electric


Make and Model? Do other windows operate? Do you hear motor working OR Trying to work? (Buzzing)If NO windows are working check fuses and relays typically under dash, in glove box, sometimes side of dash itself or under hood.If you hear noises at the window you may have a regulator problem and some of these you have to replace with a complete motor assembly. Some the regulators are available separately, but I would suggest a mechanic repair/replace that motor - regulator.Earlier model cars if you slam your hand on the trim panel (door) while using the buttons to operate it, it MAY start to work. DO NOT know about later models with that trick :-)If all other windows operate problem is with that one unit and again motor OR regulator. Hop that helps

Driver's side power window.Can hear relay click but window will not operate.


The window motor use a plastic drive tape to lift and lower the window and over time the plastic wears out or starts to break apart this causes binding and stops the motor from being able to move the window. The door panel will need to be removed to inspect the parts. jcwhitney.com sells a spool of drive tape that will repair 4 window motors. It could also be that the motor has burnt out and will need to be replaced.

Where is the rear window relay located on the 2002 Ford Explorer sport trac. Not the rear door windows but the very back window.


  • The power rear window is inoperative (Explorer Sport Trac only)
  • Circuitry.
  • Battery Junction Box (BJB) fuse 3 (30A).
  • Central Junction Box (CJB) fuse 20 (7.5A).
  • Power rear window control switch.
  • Rear window glass motor.

NOTE: The power rear window motor is not on the multiplex link. Any diagnosis and testing carried out on the power rear window will not involve the GEM module. NOTE: The reinitialization procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.

Rear Window Motor Initialization s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.
  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialized mode.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions

How to operate window that is stuck


If the switch is bad you can jump the wires to operate the window. Better yet the motor has two wires going to it. Both wires are positive feeds. One for up and the other for down. The ground is the motor to the door. Just take a wire and connect it to a power source from the fuse block terminal lug and touch one contact to the motor. If it does not go up touch the other connector instead. It will go up if the motor is good

My power windows stopped working


The power window system operates electric motors, mounted in the doors, which lower and raise the windows. The system consist of the conrol switches, the motors, regulators, glas mechanism and associated wirring.
Perform checks
1. Check fuses for proper operations, blown fuse can cause windows to stop operating.
2.Check with voltage meter your power windo switches.
3.Each motor is equiped with an internal circuit breaker, this prevents one stuck window from disabling the whole system.
4.The power windows will only operate when ignition key is ON. In addition, manu models have a window lock out switch at the master control switch which, when activated, disables the switches at the passenger's windows. Always check these items before troubleshooting a window problem
5. These procedures are general in nature, so if you can;t find the problem using them, take vehicle to the dealer service department or other properly equipped repair facility.
6. If windows wont operate always check the fuses and circuit breaker first.

Driver side power window only moves up a little bit at a time


Yes there is a problem with ur window motor. You should have an auto electrician to check it out. There are alot of things that can wrong with the motor though. If u want, u can remove the motor and connect it directly to the battery and observe how it operates. If it operates the saem way when winding up, it might need repairing or replacing
