Driver side window nbot operating

About a month ago stopped working then after a week or so fixed itself. Last week failed to operate again. Took to Chrysler--said needed a new window regulater--wanted $305 to fix problem. Seems excessive to me. Is it something a somewhat handy man can fix with a used part from a wrecked vehicle?

You can find the regulator at most salvage yards for less than half the price the dealler wants, and it's not too hard to change them out.

I have a 2003 Toyota 4-Runner. The keyless alarm has stopped working on the drivers side door.

On the driver side the actuator is more likely the culprit,the linkage could of come off or the actuator just doesnt work

Drivers window wont go down 1997 cadillac deville

I, myself own a 1993 Cadillac Sedan Deville. It has over 150K miles on the odometer and has over time had a myriad of parts replaced, mostly by me. One day, for reasons unknown, the window in the driver's side door decided not to work. Like you, all other windows remained fully operable in both directions. While the switches can fail they are, as a rule, quite reliable for long periods of time. When trying, for some time, to get the window to operate, without success, I thought, let me think about this. Upon reflection, I decided that although switch failure is possible the odds of both sets of contacts, raise and lower, failing simultaneously are small.
The next possibility is that the window regulator which is what the manufacturer calls the mechanism, has developed a motor problem. These are DC motors and I don't know whether they have a wound field ar a permanent magnet field. Assuming a wound field it is possible that the last time the window moved under power the motor stopped with a brush either stuck or in contact with a "dead spot" on the commutator. Assuming the latter and with the window fully up I opened the door, pressed the switch to lower the window and while holding the switch in the down position I simultaneously slammed the door. Voila!!! The window went down and became fully operable once more. It has been operating as designed ever since; about 8 months now. Give it a try. Window regulator assemblies are dear and the motor is NOT available as a separate part. Good Luck!!

2001 dodge caravan 3.3 passenger side window motor will not work


1. Sit in vehicle
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opennd (in case you closed door)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button held
5. Pull to SLAM hard door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat steps 3-6 if necessary, usually the first try works!

This may be a temporary fix, works for few weeks, months, repeat again at that time.

Power window on passenger side fails to work with either button

The chances are if the window the other side is working ok then the fuse will be working also.
It could then be one of two things the cheaper option would be if the window control switch needs replacing as this is just a push in switch the operates the up and down on the window.
The other and more likely problem is going to be that the window motor has failed wether it has over heated or got water damaged you may never find out the cause.
Both of these problems are quick to replace so you shouldnt be without a car for more than a few hours depending on how busy the garage are.
Main dealers tend to charge twice as much as the smaller garages so be warned.
Let me know if you need further assistance

Driver's Side Power window control panel on door doesn't work.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I took it to a mechanic who has the same vehicle and he said it was the switch in my driver side door panel. Not that big a deal, but a little costly and the switch has to be programmed by a dealer wich is BS. The mechanic put the switch on and it will work on all my other windows except my driver window. so good luck.
