The mechanism itself is usually the problem here, but there has been a rash of motor assemblies that have needed to be replaced. Ever have one done on this car before?

Howto repair left back window

Get a tool for removing the inner door panel. Determine which tool is used to remove door handle / armrest (screwdriver or Torx or hex head screw) and get that tool. Remove door handle, then door panel. Once that is removed, you can determine whether nylon tape needs to be replaced or if motor assembly has come loose and needs to be reattached or if the window is simply off its track (if it is, you should already know this because it will drop down by itself). A video is at How To Install Replace Rear Power Window Regulator ...

If you want to have someone else repair the window, and if it has come off its track, use some clear packing tape (lengthwise) to secure the window to the door until you can get it repaired.

  • Check whether the fuse is blown in the fuse box
  • Probably the motor is dead
  • Open the door panel
  • Buy a motor depending on the model
  • Fit it yourself

How do I know if I need a rear drivers side window regulator and motor or just one or the other?

If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening to the window, you need a regulator. If nothing is happening when you use the switch and you have determined that power is getting to the motor you need the motor. Check the price of both though, sometimes it is not a great difference to buy the whole unit, and if you can it is a lot easier to replace.
Hope this helps

Rear window electric motor will not lift window. I have examined the motor; but upon reinstalling, it still will not lift the window, as if the sprocket slips. What do you recommend?

First find out if the motor is working by listening to it when the switch is activated. If the motor IS working then there is a problem with the mechanism. This can only be repaired with the door panel removed. If the motor isn't working check the switch, and the power TO the motor, (panel off) try the motor with a seperate power supply. If the motor IS working, then you'll have to determine by looking to see why it isn't lifting the window glass.

The driver's side electric window will not roll back up is there a part I can buy to fix it?

Driver's side window motors get used far more than any other window motor on the truck. They frequently burn out. It is also possible that the switch is bad but the motor is more likely. Just buy a motor from a junkyard or a parts store and test it per below and put it in. The only tough part is getting the door panel off. Be careful not to destroy it in the process. Remove all visible screws (including those hidden in the finger well) and carefully pry the panel away from the door. Anywhere you run into resistance look carefully, figure out what is holding the panel, and get it off. You can test the motor once you get into the door. There are two wires going to the motor. One of them needs to be hooked to a hot lead from the battery positive post and the other to a ground lead from the door frame. Reverse the polarity to reverse the motor. If the motor works it almost has to be the switch but it is almost always the motor.

Drivers side window want roll up or down on 1999 grand am se

More likely than not, your window lift regulator motor has a "dead" spot. To find out if this is the case it will take two people. With the key on, hold the window button either way, up or down (depending on where the window is now) and rap the bottom edge of the door with a large rubber hammer several times. If the window moves than you'll need to replace the lift motor. Thank you, Dana.

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

No power to the passenger rear window

I assume you've tried with the driver's door switch and the rear passenger switch and nothing happens. If so, then it's unlikely that both switches went bad and it points to a bad motor...
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can test the switches at this point to see if they work. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the regulator, motor inside the door that will be held in by several bolts

1999 ford expedition with a passenger, front window stuck in the down possition


Initially, try to determine which fuse goes to the power window. Check and replace if necessary.

In brief for a temporary remedy just to have the window closed: remove the triangular cover at the top front of the door behind the mirror, there should be a screw there; remove the trim around the door handle another screw, remove the cover of the courtesy light at the bottom of the door, there is another screw behind that; soon as all the screws are out, lift/push up on the door panel and pull off. This would grant you access to the mechanism controlling the window. You can try closing by manually turning the motor.

Thereafter, pls determine if it is the motor or the switch(es) has failed. Replacements are available here.

Incidentally, here is a nice tutorial on repairs of power windows in general.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
