YEs, mine are at the point of needing to replace them, my passenger side goes down no problem, but I have to wait 10 minutes to roll it up 4 inches at a time. I'm buying a toyota truck next ... american cars ****
Replaced alternator, serpentine tensioner, waterpump, radiator
torque bushing, rear end is slow leaking, and currently I might have a blown engine due to the intake manifold leak that was due to poor engineering on the **** v6 engines.
A friend of mine replaced his camaro window motors once so far.
I love the look of the car, but the engine and spark plug maintenance sux.. oil change is super easy, but the rest of working on it sux.

I have a 02 isuzu rodeo sport drivers side front window wont go up motor clicks when u push button down nothing on up tr ied new motor same problem


Sounds like worn teeth on the gears on either the motor or lift mechanism. Did you replace only the motor or motor and regulator (lift 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.

Driver side window motor not going up or down


You may be having problems with the motor drawing too many amps and kicking out a circuit breaker. If this is the case, you will have to replace the window motor.Check the window switch too.It can also be the cause of window not working.You can check both the window as well as switch with voltmeter or a test light to confirm which part is faulty. The window motor is a 12 volt electrical part.So check for the 12 volt to the motor connections.If the voltage is low then its faulty motor and has to be replaced. ------------- Also in your question comment you have mentioned that driver side window motor not functioning.So in that case before going for new replacement motor,i suggest to connect the passenger side motor to driver side motor connections and check.If the window functions with passenger side motor connected then its a faulty driver-side motor,but if the window not working with passenger side motor connected , then its not the faulty motor but the faulty driver side window operating switch.It has to be replaced.But in some cases it has also seen that parts like motor as well as switch are ok but the problem relates to short in wiring or the wires getting loose between switch to regulator or switch to motor.So confirm this possibilities also before going for any kind of part replacements. --------------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

I replaced the driver's side window motor because


I don't know everything there is to know about window motors, but I have seen this before, both mine went out at the same time, not together but a couple weeks apart, like they were dated. Anyway, I replaced both motors, then both operators. Now they both work fine. I would hang on to the old motor, you never know, it might be good, You might have a bad switch on the door, I had to take my switches apart on my other truck and clean the contacts, got both motors working again, Hope this helps.

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

1998 toyota sienna window on the driver side won't go up to close


Sadly, the power windows on this van are not very robust. Worse yet, the windows will go down but not go up--except perhaps a little at a time. But eventually the motor will no longer work.

I disassembled my power window and found there was no way to replace the motor except with a (very, very expensive) factory part.

My passenger window is currently broken like this, and I disconnected the wiring to prevent anyone from operating it. I keep my passenger window very very clean because friction (like sap from the Almond tree in our front yard) wears out the automatic windows quicker.

In your case, there's no real workaround because it's the driver's window--go to the dealer and see what type of price you can get for the replacement part.

My condolences.

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.
