You may have a bad power widow motor, it's possible to buy a bad one. try this, with switch for window pushed for widow to go down,try pushing the glass down by hand. the motor may be weak,or car's set for awhile and motors stuck in position. stranger things have happened. if window starts down with hand assistance,stop,and try rolling up. the tracks may be rusted,you may need to remove door panels and lube window tracks with wd40 or grease. tthank you for choosing fixya.com

Just replaced a motor on one this week--same symptoms. It would go about an inch and then just click a time or 2. The motor coil shorts out and then the shortened coil gets too hot to do anything. Was the extra motor you hooked up known to be good? Does it turn well when you hook it straight to the battery? I bet it don't. You have to drill out the rivets to change the motor. Then there may be some screws holding it on to the regulator too. I had to take the glass off of the 02 sunfire I just fixed to get to the screws inside the door. Lemme know if you need more help. We'll fool your wife and maybe impress her too.

Locating power window fuse - Cannot figure out which one is for pw - passenger window won't go down


There is just one fuse for all windows, so the problem here is that most likely the power window motor is defective or the regulator is jammed up, take the door apart and test the motor.

WHAT COULD BE CAUSING MY PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW NOT TO GO DOWN? HAVE POWER TO THE LOCKS AND MIRROR. ANY SUGGESTIONS?


The first thing I would do is check the fuses. The fuse/circuit for the power windows would require more amperage than the mirror or locks and, would therefore, be on a totally different circuit. Check the owners manual for the location of the fuse.

Was the window acting up (operating slowly or making mechanical noises or grinding noises) if any of these were noticed, I would suspect a faulty motor or broken window regulator.

Me thinks, if it is anything more than a blown fuse, it would be beyond your skill level to fix therefore, I would take it to a reputable repair facility and ask them to check it out. If it is a fuse it would be a minimal charge.

My windows wont go up on my 2002BMW745I


Personally I'd start with checking the fuse panel,on MBnz there're fuses that handle power to l/f&r/rear,r/f&l/rear. If fuses are good &/or power is going through but no action from the window motors then I'd remove one door panel at a time to see where the electrical connections hook up to the window motors and see if motor receives power but no action then could be obstruction on the rails?. If no power to the motor,I'd connect direct power to the exposed motor to see if motor is good. I'd try starting from the fuse panel FIRST!. Hope this helps. Alberto

2002 thunderbird window won't go up or down replace swith still wont work fuse are ok does the switch get power


The master switch connector does have circuits that have power on them. The Master switch is not directly connected to the window motors. The switch sends a signal to the Front Electronic Module and the module controls operation of the motor on the driver side. The passenger door window motor is controlled by a different module

Number 7 is for the body control module, its a 10 amp fuse.

The fuse panel is under back seat.If all fuses checked out ok,then its faulty drivers door module called as DDM.

My driver side window on my 2001 ford explorer wont go up but it will go down. How can I know whether its a fuse, motor, or regulator...


If the window goes down , you have power, you need to check the switch first then test the window motor for proper operation

DRIVER SIDE BACK WINDOW WONT GO DOWN


take the door cover out .look for the door window wiring make sure you have power going down to the switch.if you do have power going to the switch,then its time to check if the power its going from the switch to the door window motor,if you have power on getting to window motor and the motor is not working,then the motor its bad need to be replace.before all of these steps to fallow.
check in the fuse box the fuse,the fuse that is related with the door window motor,it should be shown in the fuse box cap.good luck.

My driver side window wont go up. When tested no power going to it. But the fuse isnt bad. Anyone have any ideas? When button is pushed down the relay clicks.


The problem will be either the window switch or window regulator motor. With the relay clicking sounds like window regulator. It easiest and and costs only a couple dollars more to get and replace the whole assembly versus just the motor. I hope this is helpful.

Passenger side power window halfway down


You will need to remove your interior trim panel and check your window regulator for damage and for power going to your window motor. If your regulator is ok and you have power going to the motor then you have a bad window motor. If there is no power at the motor then you will need to check the circuit for the problem ie. blown fuses, broken wiring, bad switch. It is very commen for the motors to go bad. Good luck.

Power window front passenger


I had the same problem on my 1992 lesabre. The solution is to test the window motor itself with an external 12 volt power supply ( I used the car battery and some jumper cable w/ 2 screw drivers - not recommended for amatures! LOL) First remove the door panel which is difficult but you'll figure it out if you are qualiifed to repair your window yourself. Then test the window moptor if it functions (in both directions) THEN IT IS THE WINDOW SWITCH, A FUSE OR A RELAY. If the moter does not function then replace the motor
Good Luck
You can get a new window motor on ebay or at your local junk yard or (god forbid) the dealership
