Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Driver side window

Tried to put power window on track but the power mechanism doesn't seem to lift the window up on a level basis. The window seems to go up towards the back more than the front. One person needs to assist the front side while another pushes the up-switch. It appears to have too much play on the front side of the window.

Ok...I have a 2000 chevy s10 with power windows. The driver side window will go down halfway and then stop. The same as going up. The switch is good, I replaced it. What would cause this?


My Buick Le saber did this and what my problem was the window track was corroded and full of dirt causing the window to bind in the track. My mechanic took it apart and put a new track in and it works now. It does not come cheap to have a mechanic do it.

Power window drverside not working


There would be no relay for driver's side only. If the clicking is from the door, the gears on the motor may be stripped or the lifting mechanism, the track, may need checked. You will have to pull off the inner door panel to check. You just may need a new motor or a new regulator mechanism.

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

How do you get power window back in it's track, rear upper section of the window has fallen forward.


If you want to do this you need to remove the inner door panel( and maybe a weather barrier). be aware if you have any power options with switches on the door panel they must be disconnected before you attempt door panel removal.as soon as you remove the door panel(usually two or three screws and a dozen easily breakable plastic clips holding it in place) you will be able to see the window lift mechanism. if the window has not fallen completely off track you will be able to see how it is held by the "lift cradle" carefully without letting the window fall down into the door place the window back into its track"cradle" and loosely tighten the fasteners. and reconnect the window crank or window switch temporarily to slowly lift and lower the window while supporting it with your hand (to be sure it doesn't fall off its track while testing it) check if the window is tracking properly. if if seems to slide up and down appropriately and lands into the window seal appropriately then lower the window to a place where you can snug down the window retainers not too tight so as not to break the glass. and replace the door panel. after all switches or mechanisms are replaced test it again slowly to check for appropriate function and if you are satisfied pat yourself on the back for a job well done. i hope this helps

door panel just pops off if you use care while doing. the window is not off track , the motor sounds like it came loose and is not making contact with the lift / lower mechanism.

2003 honda civic driver side window fall down


I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes.
Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt".
I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains.
I hope it helps.
