If you can hear the motor working but the winodwo is not coming up then it is probably out of the track.. there should be only a few screws holding the door panel on. remove it and put the window in down position. Then you can use your hands to work the window up. When you get it in the up position you can see through the door where the tracks are. Just lower the window back down in the tracks. But first put some good adhesive or silicone in the very bottom track that the windows rests in so that the window will stay attached to the bottom track.. once you have done that, raise the winding using the switch and leave the window in the up position until you are sure the adhesive is dry.

Drivers door window makes noise but won't raise or lower and back windows won't raise or lower on either switch but passenger door window works? Can't find an obvious wiring problem


It's not a wiring problem. Rather,i think your window has slipped off the track. You will to open up the door panel to get to it and fix it.

Why is only the driver side window is working on my 1996 maxima


electric window dead.
fails to go up and down?
  1. blown fuse in the , fuse box.
  2. bad switch
  3. bad wires from fuse , switch and motor
  4. bad motor.
  5. window track jammed, and overloads said motor.

in a shop we dont guess. we use a $10 volt meter,
and measure the voltage to the motor pins, ACTIVE.
I got 12v yes, good
i dont get 12v, the controls are not sending 12v to motor, trace that with the meter. (easy is pie)
got 12v.
it dont move but buzzes, tack is jammed or motor bad.
if motor is silent and dont even twitch with 12v, (active) its bad.
if the motor seems overloaded, then disconnect the motor drive.
and see if the window does move easy, if not, bingo its jammed.
ill stop here, and not go in to the long topic of how to rebuild tracks.

remove the door panel. it may have come off track. go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your specific car. they are based on a complete teardown of vehicle. this book will show how to remove door panel. they are about 20 to 25 dollars.

If you don't hear the motor running anymore it has stopped working or jammed. If the motor is running it maybe something as simple as a track that needs replaced. You will need to open the door panel to find out and repair this. I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual to do this.

Driver and passenger windows apear to be off tracks


They are definitely either off track, or the window regulators are broken, or some mounting points are broken in the door trim. I am not really familiar with the door trim in Elantras, but the inside door panels will have to be taken off (which is real easy if you know what you're doing on that type of vehicle but manufacturers like to hide screws, bolts and clips which can make it a pain if you don't know exactly what holds the panel in place) and once the panels are off the source of the problem will probably be obvious...

Drivers electric window stuck in down position


actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up

1998 Park Avenue Drivers window seems to twist slightly when going down, stopping the window, usually within the first inch or two. this only happens sometimes, and does not depend on weather or temp. do...


Sounds like a track problem. It happens sporadically because the track will occasionally align itself when the window is closed, allowing you to open the window normally but will work itself away fromthe door after you open it. You probably hear a strange noise when closing the window. The track needs repair. This will require opening the door panel to secure the track or replace it altogether.

Window


take off door panel and see if window has fallen off the track. may have to replace window motor as it is part of the window regulator is inside the motor and that maybe what is out.
