How do you get the windows of a 1996 Firebird to roll up if they quit working once they are down?
The first thing I would check is the switch and motor (if they are power windows which most late model Firebirds are) if it is burned out, a replacement will be necessary. A more likey possibility is that the window simply went off it's track, after it went down. This is most likely if the windows were working fine. Use a screwdriver to revove the door panels from the inside and remove the plastic sheet to access the window and hardware, be careful however, because the plastic protects your cars electrical work from dirt and moisture Ok, what he said above is true, but unless it dropped or clearly jammed, its probably not off the track. I recently changed out the motor on my 92, and I will warn you, its EXTREMELY HARD. Once you do it, you will see why a shop wants around $200 labor for it. I heard that in 94 they started making them with nylon pulleys and belts (always trying to come up with something cheaper), so it might not be that hard. Basically, buy a new motor, have someone hold the glass up while you detach the motor/regulator assembly from the door, then work it out of the door the best you can (it will take a while, a long while) then replace the old motor with the new one (if there was a tensioner spring, make sure before you put it back in that the tension is in the right direction, you dont want to have to take that sucker out again). Put it back in the door, reattach it, and there you go, just make sure its the way you found it.
97 Tahoe-Power windows not working at each individual window but drivers controls can roll them down- are power windows and door locks all connected in some way?
This happens to me also in my 1996 Firebird. However, this didn't always happen until my driver side headlight motor (gear) started grinding - it needs to be changed. Are you having any abnormal sounds when you put your lights down? If so check into replacing the gears. http://www.bfranker.badz28.com/headlightfix/index.htm
it sounds like the window relay is not working or not making good connection.....had this happen on a 1990 town car i used to own........the relay on the 1990 was behind the glove box.....you could drop the box down and thump the relay and windows would start working......finally replaced relay and no more problems..........good luck
After removing your transmission to change your freeze plugs you wanted to roll your windows down you dont have any power is this because the trany and starter are out..its a 1992 firebird v6?
On many cars the main power cable runs from the battery to the starter, and the power for the rest of the system is taken from there. So if the starter is disconnected, the power cable that goes to the main fuse box, and from there to your windows etc, is probably disconnected from the battery cable.
Sometimes there will be a program running that hangs when you tell windows to shut down. To avoid this, save any data you are working on and close whatever prpgram you had running. Then shut down windows. That should fix the problem. If not, there is likely some part of the OS that is corrupt and won't close out properly. You may need to repair the fault, or even reinstall the OS all over again.
look for obvious problems first like the fuses. then test if there's power going to the motors that open and close the windows. if there's no power its a short in the circuit. if theres power, try testing the motors with an alternate power supply to check if they are working. but they shouldn't all brake down at the same time.
Why does my 1995 Mitsubishi Gallant power windows get stuck halfway down How do you fix or can you replace with manual windows?
How do you fix the electric looks and widows in a 1996 Toyota Corolla where the windows are stuck down?
Your rear window won't go up or down all the way in your 2001 Chrysler sebring conv limited Is it the relay switch or the motor?
On any type of car with power windows, it could be that the motor in each door has quit and therefore will not go up or down but it is rare that all three would quit working at the same time, so you may check to see if there is a "lock" on the windows - which is controlled by the drivers' side control panel.
If these are power windows, more information is needed to attempt an accurate answer. Assuming the car is 2 door and both windows are afflicted with the same problem, this is an electrical malfuction of the window circuit. Here are some quick tests and possible solutions. When the windows are down, will the windows move up at ALL using the master switch (driver's side)? Does the passenger switch move the window at all. If the…
