The motor may be weakened due to wear, but the problem is more likely mechanical.

Some window regulator assemblies use what's called regulator control tape to convert motor rotation into linear motion to move the window in the track. Over time the tape deteriorates and binds, or breaks.

A thorough visual inspection of the regulator assembly will be required to determine the ultimate problem. The door panel has to be removed for this process.

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.

My drivers side window on my 1994 ford Taurus is stuck in the down position. how do i get it to go up and down again? the window motor is working ok. just that the window will not move


If the motor is working but the glass is not moving something must have broke inside the door. See if you can sneak a piece of duct tape down along side the glass, get it down as far as possible. Use a butter knife or something to make the tape stick to the glass, now try pulling the glass up with the tape. You may want run the window motor at the same time maybe it will catch. If you get the window up, tape it with duct tape so you can get it to a shop to get it fixed. Good luck.

your window does not ride on a track the motor has a gear that drives a mechanism up and down. it sounds like the motor came loose.

Your window is not getting stuck. The plastic gear parts in the window motor has crumbled OR the cable in the window regulator has broken.

Power window won't go up or down without manual help


You can adjust the window.....but that entails taking the door panel off, and the plastic vapor barrier, to gain access. then you can see the bolts for the track adjustment.........BUT....why not try investing in a can of Silicone Spray @ your local autoparts store....and spray the ****out of the rubber and felt in the channels, when the window is down??? Worked for me in my 35 years of journeyman auto tech experience......Have fun.

1994 geo prizm windows in back go down but not up.


is this on BOTH windows?? it is odd they both failed at the same time.
If you here the motor running there is something inside the door has let go or falling off. the door will have to be taken apart to be fixed.
this is what's inside YOUR door. (passanger side, drivers side is just a mirror image)
44e5675.jpg 1. there could be a problem between the motor gear and the moon gear. or 2 (most likely) the regulator arm has come off the window track or the window track has come off the glass.
hope this helps.
