The window will often fall down on a 2001 Nissan Xterra due to a faulty drive motor. This causes the tension that holds the window in place to release.
My 89 used to do the same thing. I just cleaned the temp sensor on the top of the motor, they usually get a lot of corrosion on them.
Valve lifter could be sticking. Take the valve cover off and start the engine. You can narrow down which one it is. Might Not be sticking and just need adjusting.
More than likely it is your switch or a short in the wires, if the motor was going it would not work part of the time. I would say 95% it is the switch. Look for a part for this replacement on line , my guess about $50.
Open your hood look down to left see fuse box above battery, voila its in there.
look straight down past the place where you pour brake fluid in, that thing with the wire coming out is your O2 sensor
If by " rolls down all by itself" you mean that it slowly slides down while traveling in the car, then my advice would be to take the door panel off and check to see if the window came off the the lower clips. If every thing looks sound and or the window is electronicly rolling itself down I don't know what to tell you.
bad window motor have it replaced.
look down from the passenger front wheel toward the left its bolted to the transmission, usually gold in color, and has fat wires coming out of it.
I would suspect that the clutch slave cylinder is bad. Follow the line down from where you added fluid to find the slave cylinder. After replacing the slave unit you will need to bleed the system then it will work fine again. Mark
Based on symptom: switch or motpr Based on Nissan: switch Replace Nissan window switches frequently lest you be caught open in the rain.
You need to adjust the strike further in towards the interior. It has 2 screws that hold the strike down loosen them and move the strike.
If electric, take it to a garage or trim shop and have it checked out.
Anyone have prob w/ sentra power window? Won't go up or down. IF YOUR WINDOW IS NOT MOVING AT ALL(UP OR DOWN) IT IS YOUR MOTOR BUT IF IT IS MOVING EITHER UP OR DOWN, MEANING IT WILL MOVE ONE DIRECTION BUT NOT ANOTHER THEN IT'S YOUR SWITCH
I'm not sure about yours but we used to set them, bottom one straight up and top one straight down.
hi, is the window motor off track or is the window off track. if the window is leaning or has fell down , take the door panel off and on the window tracks you will two 10mm screws and the track on the window will have two slots for them to slide in. slide them in and tighten them down.
The thermostat is located on the RH side (passenger side) of the engine, toward the front. A radiator hose goes into a housing. Looking down from the top, there are (normally) two sensors going into the housing. The thermostat is below these and the cover is held onto the block with three bolts. If you replace it, go with an original Nissan brand. It's worth any extra cost.
If the drivers side window works; yet, the other three do not check the window lock by the window controls on the drivers door. If it is pressed it will lock the other three windows no matter where you try to roll them down from. If this button has not been pressed I would suspect that the switch is bad or there is a loose connection inside the door panel.
Sounds like the window regulator. Mine did the same thing changed that and no more problems, it cost about 75.00 for the part.
I've never worked on a Nissan, but on domestic vehicles ,yes, the spring would be down (or toward the block) good luck friend-mannsvillain
first time? i understand. there's a push botton on top of the ignition-key-hole, you'll need to press and hold it down in order to remove the key.
try removing switch, and jumping the wires, this should raise window with out pulling door apart
It sounds like the plastic gear on the window regulator has broken. disengaging the window from the levers... I had a 1990 240sx that had the same problem. You have to take the door panel off and replace the window regulator.... I would recommend painting all the internal linkage and window screws before you take them off, this way you will know where to reposition the window and linkage to avoid adjusting later... If you window motor is turning and the window goes up part of the way but stops. But can be pulled all the way up by hand it is the motor. It has a rubber cog inside the assembly and the steel shaft from the motor rips through the rubber cog and just spins. I orded a regulator and it ended up being the motor. My car has a sheet draped over the door so cats won't get in there and piss in it tonight... but the motor and the regulator. Don't be cheap....get both of them in the first place. A1auto dot com is the cheapest place. ~shawn
I had luck with a product called Liquid Stitch. My 1994 Nissan 240SX convertible plastic window had developed a rip--which I found one day while washing the car. I was spraying the window off when I noticed water running down the window INSIDE of the car:-). I did some general searches on the net for plastic/vinyl repair and Liquid Stitch came up. It dries clear and is firm yet flexible. I disocvered other uses for it also but am most happy with the results I got using it on the car. No leaking and no further ripping form where I applied it. Hope it helps.
Sounds like it is your window motor drive box. I have had to repair three in my 95 Maxima. There is no longer a good bond between your rubber isloation wheel and the output drive. This is the part behind the round aluminum cover adjacent to your electric window drive motor.
