    I have the same problem with my driver side window, you can hear the click in the door when the button is pressed but nothing happens, have tried disconnecting the battery and thumping the window but no luck.

    How can you check if the fuses are ok?

    Any other simple solutions, dont want to pay BMW £250 to fix!!!!

The problem is that the motor isnt strong enough for the job and thumping the door above the speaker is a quick fix , the only real solution is to replace the door window motor , and if the realy is clicking this indicates that the relay is working

Give it a really hard thump were the window motor is. Always works on mine. Until the next time it stops working. But it's been months now since the last time it stopped.

When the same thing happened on my Mini Cooper (2001), I had to have the window motor replaced (cost approx £250).

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch

If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

2001 Sierra. My driver side window stopped

The window motors are getting weak. If they are stuck down you can sometimes get them up by giving a firm hard hit on inside lower door panel while holding button up. This can get the windows up until you can get the window motor replaced. If you would like any further assistance feel free to ask, Thank you.

The drivers side window auto up/down quit

1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

The drive window is not operating, does it has a fuse?

If you are hearing a click, it is probably not a fuse, if the sound of the click is coming from inside the door. Sometimes, the wire spool will get jammed/twisted/unaligned, and will stop moving. To test this, you would need to take the interior panel of the door off, depending on the make/model of the car, this could be easy or not. Once that is off, you will be able to see most of the window mechanisms and wiring to determine the problem.

Power window switch on 2008 Civic

Roll the window down. Now hold the button to roll it up and keep holding the button even after the window stops - you may hear a faint relay click noise. It is then reprogrammed. Sometimes I have to do it two or more times because I did not hold it long enough.

2001 ford f150 drivers side window does not work , clicking sound

Listen real close under dash when trying other windows, and see if you don't hear faint click with them too. I'm guessing your driver side motor is tired, but perhaps a little lube and some coaching, it will come back again, otherwise door panel will have to come off to try a few things, or replace motor. It's the one that gets most used, so is most likely to give out first.

The drivers side window on my mini one has stopped working, When i press the button to lower it i can hear a faint clicking sound comming from inside the door panel.

Went onto a mini site and according to the members on there its a common problem with the mini and one way of fixing it believe it or not is just above the door speaker? give it a bang, i thought threre's know way that will work but hey it doesn't cost anything does it, so i gave it a bang and it worked. An owner who thought that the motor had gone on his mini bought one, but before he had it fitted he thought that he would give this method a try and 12 monthes later it is still working.

2002 Jahuar xk8 -convertible- Driver's window does not retract back to close position after door closes

If you disconnect the battery you must reprogram both windows by holding the button down until you hear it chime takes about 5 or so seconds. Repeat for the other window and this should solve the problem. This information should be in your owners manual, it is in mine
