Po wer window was stuck in the down position. Pulled off door panel and plug had power to the motor for up and down. The GM dealer was out of motors so I went to the local salvage yard. Put used...


well if you have power for up and down at the plug then it isnt a relay or fuse issue or you would have no power, did you just replace the motor only? it might be the regulator also, if it went down and wouldnt go back up then thats probably the issue a failed window regulator and thats the assembly that attaches the window to the motor and allows the motor to move the window

Electric windows dont move up or down on my honda accord


If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.

Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.

To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--

1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2)
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.

5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.

Toyota corolla altis 2003, driver side power window is not working properly when using the auto button, if you close the window using the auto button it automatically closing but when it reaches to the end...


I had the same problem with my 2002 Altis. I found a solution after a lot of research and reading in the web.

1. Remove the power window motor from the regulator (mechanism).
2. Reconnect the power motor to the electronic controller(switches).
3. Perform "Auto Down" an wait until the motor stops.
4. Put a mark in the motor gear.
5. Perform "Manual Up" slowly until the gears rotates around 6 times but not greater than 10 times.
6. Remove the motor from the electronic controller.
7. Re-assemble whole power window assembly.

Drivers window in pontiac montana 2002 went down and will not come back up. how do i test to see if the switch is working. The right window is functioning very well.


Most likely the window motor/regulator assembly has gone bad.Check for good fuse, if good pull out the switch and make sure you have power to it, if you do then remove door panel and test for power at motor, if u have power but motor won't work replace. Suggest replacing the regulator assembly as well because the cables often fray and cause problems as well.

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.

The power window on my truck will come down, but won't go back up. The motor seems to be working fine. I need a diagram of all the parts so I can determine which parts need to be repaired or replaced....


The power window regulator and motor come as am assembly. Usually the cable snaps and the window drops down and won't come back up. About a $400 repair.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Remove the front window regulator.
    • Loosen the two hanger bolts.
    • Remove the front window regulator bolts and front top run channel bolt.
