Spraying the window might not take care of the problem, It sounds like the action needs to be greased or it is bound up. You can try spraying the glass and the runners with silicone and then cleaning the glass, I do it all the time to help my windows go, but yours is a deeper problem. If all fails, take off the door panel and find out what is causing it to be so hard. those things should go up and down effortlessly. Hope this helps.

The driver side window in my 1988 ford ranger will not roll down. Its manual. What's the problem and how should I fix it???


Remove the clips in the inside of the window handle,also clips on door handle.Look for any screws holding the door panel on, then take a screwdriver and pry the door panel away from the door. re install the window handle,and try rolling the window down. You will probably see what is stopping it. If it looks like the window regulator is worn out, check the local junk yards for a replacement.

Keyless entry problem to 04 suburban the doors will all lock however the drivers side will not unlock. Last night the passenger door unlocked and I tried manually to unlock from that door and drivers door...


FIRST TRY TO USE LITHIUM GREASE SPRAY CAN ON ALL MOVING ITEMS INSIDE DOOR. AS YOU SPRAY EACH ITEM PUSH AND PULL ON DOOR HANDLE, DOORLOCK PLUNGER. WHILE YOUR IN THERE DO THE DOOR WINDOW GEARS AND MOVE WINDOW UP AND DOWN TOO. SPRAY ALL YOU WANT THE GREASE WONT HURT ANYTHING.
IF STILL DOES NOT WORK REPLACE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR. USUALLY ONLY 2-3 BOLTS AND 1 CONNECTOR WITH 2 WIRES COMING OFF IT.

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Driver side door handle will not open


Start by spraying WD-40 or similar penetrant in behind and all around door latch & in behind handle as much as you can get to, and give it time to soak in & keep working it, as it may be just a lack of lubricant & becoming partially seized.May take 2 or 3 soakings.

Power window systems failing in past few months. 3 of 4 now dead.


before spending alot of money on windows motors, try to take out the switch in the door handle and spray contact cleaner in the switch.. sometimes if you use alot of armor all on the door panels it will work its way into the switch and make it dirty.

Door Latch will not engage


It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.

Hope this is of some help.

Does anyone know if you can manually lift the driver side window?


Can you hear it at least trying to lift, Motor grunting kind of ? If yes try to spray some (lots of ) silicone spray, or even "pam" cooking spray down along the edges where the felt is to see if that will help loosen it up & lubricate the guides. The odd time a sharp blow to mid area of door inside panel while holding switch in up position, you may get lucky one time.

1999 Toyota Camry LE - Driver's Side Electric Window


What you have could be one or both of the following:
Dirty/sticky window tracks, or a window motor issue.
What I would do before you take it in: Get some 100% silicone spray, lower the window, and spray the lubricant down inside the door, on the rubber strip that the window travels in. Run the window up & down to get the lubricant worked in. See if that helps.
What is happening here is this: There is a thermister built into the drive motor, and when the motor gets a little too hot (working too hard, with dirty window rubbers), it opens, like a circuit breaker. When it cools off, the thermister contacts close, and the window works again. 2 things cause this: Dirty window run rubbers, or a motor that is beginning to fail.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment back for more info...
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
