Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Power window on drivers side front goes up and down but makes noise on the "up", kind of grinding. Have lubed through inside door with panel removed but no change. Is the motor or regulator wearing out? should they both be replaced or wait until it stops completely? Mileage is 105,000 and car runs beautifully. Plan on keeping it.

Sounds like the cable system is getting ready to break, the rails are rubbing the sides on the way up. You will need to replace the window regulator to get rid of the issue.

When operating drivers door electric window it makes a grinding screeching noise & gets stuck half way & have to close window by operating switch while pulling window up


If sounds like the window came off the window track & when it gets halfway up the window motor may start grinding. 1st try lubing the rubber window seals w/ white grease to see if that helps . if not remove the inner door cover & ck to see if the glass is firmly sealed to the track & lube all gears & motor gears . If window is out of the track a SPECIFIC ADHESIVE GLUE is made for it. Reset it in the track & re glue it in position .Don't forget to lude the edges & seals. GOOD LUCK, Frank M

Windows wont go up or down on my 2000 chevy blazer unless both front door are partaly open


There is a rubber boot that goes from the body to the door. Inside that boot there are the wires for speakers locks windows, etc. If the power window wire is pinched or partially cut then that would be your fix. Your Main window switch that can control all the windows from the driver's seat is that hub for all the power that goes to each other door and window as far as power windows is concerned. Not sure as to why both front doors would have to be opened to open the front windows. If both doors are having a problem then you may have a problem inside the wiring boot in between the body and each door so check both. This is a common problem with a lot of vehicles with power windows. Good Luck.

Chrysler Grand Voyager 2000 with a drivers window that sometimes works! and a loud knocking noise thatis intermitent (although loud) coming when the car is moving, just on the right hand side of the c


Well I think the best thing to do is to replace the windows control module, the one in the drivers door, but before that make sure is getting power and ground if not you found the problem.

My driver side window goes down fine but get stuck going up. is the motor bad or the lift regulator?


Its usually the window motor itself, quite often the window tracks and channels are dry and cause the motor to work harder and eventually tire out. If it attempts to go up then quits it usually pops the circuit breaker inside the window motor because its overworking and draws to many amps (pops breaker). It will attempt to work after a few seconds when circuit breaker cools and closes again. Apply some silicone based lube to the window tracks and channels, and try the window again. If it works you will eventually need a motor. The regulator usually displays binding condition in one specific spot when window going up or down, if its always the same spot it quits then it could be binding in the regulator.

Driver side door making a popping noise when opening or closing. Lubed the hinge but it kind of sounds like it's coming from inside the panel


Check spacing between the front of the door and the
fender. The door could be pinching the fender when you open and close it. Hope this helps.

The lock on my front driver door will not unlock with power locks the rest the door will not even open when i attempt to open from the inside i tried unlocking it with the key but it made a sounds like...


You will need to remove the inside door trim panel and check the three (3) rods and plastic connectors that connect:
(a) the inside door handle to the door mechanism
(b) the inside door lock knob/outside key lock cylinder to the door mechanism
(c) the outside door handle to door mechanism.

Most likely one (or more) of these rods have either become loose or the plastic lock clips have broken.
The "L" end of the rod goes thru the hole of the clip and the clip has a pivoting "U" shape that goes over and locks onto the rod.
Based on the your year (2000) it might be a good idea to remove all clips and rods; and remove the entire door mechanism. Inspect, clean, lubricate, and re-install it.
