Question about 2000 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Power window switch

Switch went out. will roll window down, but not up. Wondering if the switch itself is easy to replace, or if it requires specialized tools and door panel removal. I'm up for tackling it myself vs taking it to a dealer, but I'd love input

It just pops out with a screwdriver. Just insert it at the top of the switch and carefully pop it out of the panel. Then just unplug the switch at the back. You cannot find it at an auto parts store so you will have to go to the dealer or get it online. The switch is the issue with the car. I have a 2000 Subaru Legacy that did the same exact thing and it was the switch.

1995 Ford Taurus front passenger window went down and won't roll up


Remove the switch panel and check to see there is 12V power there.. If there is Push the switch and see if the power comes out of it to drive the motor, if the power is not present check the wire back looking for the short.. usually if the power is missing none of the windows will work. look where the wires come out the door post to the door. look at fuses, If there is power and it does not come through the switch when you push the switch. the switch might be bad. in which case jump the switch to roll window up and buy a new switch (rock auto.com) if you apply 12v power and the window still will not go up.. you will need to replace the motor. not a hard job. you must remove door panel and remove regulator and motor and replace and reinstall. either junk yard part, craigslist part or new at Rock auto.. Post a comment and let us know what happens.

About 3 months ago I began experiencing problems with my 2006 Toyota 4-Runner. When the vehicle is parked in my driveway, the hatchback window would roll down by itself, no one touched the button to roll...


your cars system is powered and controled by an ECU ( electronic control unit or computer box) the program is malfunctioning by then, have ur car checked using a scan tool with parameters designed for your cars ECU to check the sensors it might only needs reprogramming rather than buying a very expensive computer box.

95 riviera drivers window wont go down


Could be a couple of things: the first two apply ONLY to POWER WINDOWS:
1-window switch went bad (not common but it happens)
2-window motor only works one direction (even more rare, but still has happened)
3-window regulator defective(power windows-maybe broken cable or mechanism; manual crank window regulator-broken mechanism.

If you have power windows:
Do you hear the motor running or binding when trying to roll window down? bad regulator
No noise? switch or motor

You need to remove your door panel to see and access the interior operating components. When you get that far you'll most likely see something obviously broken.

Then you'll need to examine the regulator and see if it has a broken cable or other binding parts.

Not a big deal to replace the window motor or regulator, but requires a little patience and manual dexterity.

Hope this helps.

94 accord ex, driver side rear window not working


the motor is holding it in place you the only way to get it up if the motor itself is bad and you don't wanna replace it right now you can unbolt the window off the regulator and put the window up and jam it in place with something but the motor should be pretty easy to replace
