    Thank you, dj_relly999. Since it was the holiday weekend, the repair shops were closed. I unhooked the battery to prevent
    further damage, the rear window(driver side) started making clicking noise.

    There was a clicking sound and another noise coming from underneath the hood.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

The passenger side window motor is surely faulty that's why it's burning. Please have it replaced before the damage gets worst. Regarding the car not moving, there are few things to look at...

- Transmission solenoids can be faulty
- Transmission fluid may be burnt
- Torque converter may be worn out

You will need to have them checked and replaced if necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    Good thing you disconnected the battery. The relay under the hood is faulty too that's why you hear it clicking by itself. Have them checked by a good auto electrician to trace out the fault.

Burning smell


If it smells like burning a burning plastic/ceramic then your brakes are locking up and burning. Next time it does it, see if the smell is coming from the rear tire. if so, its time for a brake job

Lets assume the park brake is off. If you put it in gear, forward or reverse and the engine revs but care doesn't move, you are either very low on automatic transmission fluid or the transmission is burned up. Check the fluid level. If normal smell the fluid. If it smells burned, there is no doubt that the transmission is burned up.

FIRST YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE REAR PASSENGER INTERIOR DOOR COVER TO GET TO THE WINDOW MOTOR. ONCE REMOVED LOOK TO SEE IF THE WIRE IS STILL CONNECTED TO THE MOTOR. IF IT IS, DISCONNECT THE WIRE. ***IF YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER(OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES) WITH THE IGNITION SET TO AUX, OR ON IT DOESNT MATER, TEST THE POWER COMING FROM THE WIRE. IF IT READS 9.5-12+V, THE POWER IS GETTING TO THE WINDOW MOTOR AND STOPPING, YOU NEED A NEW MOTOR. IF THERE IS NO POWER COMING FROM THE WIRE, YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE YOUR CAR TO A SHOP. IT IS NOT A FUSE SINCE ALL THE WINDOWS RUN OFF THE SAME FUSE AND RELAY.

**IF NO MULTIMETER IS AVALIBLE, TAKE A 12V POWER SOURCE (CAR BATTERY) AND RUN THE POWER DIRECTLY FROM THE BATTERY TO THE WINDOW MOTOR. IF THE MOTOR RUNS, BAD WIREING. IF THE MOTOR DOES NOT RUN, BAD MOTOR.

Neither rear window will roll down using the rear controls. They both work fine using the driver's master controls. Also the passenger rear window rolls down, on its own, when the switch is on.


Is you car fitted with a childlock safety switch for the rear windows?

If so the windows will work from the front but will be locked out to the rear seat passenger
