You have to access the motor to test it but it probably is bad. The brushes in the botor hangup a lot and when this happens it quits.

How do you fix a power window in a 97 Honda civic?

Remove the door panel. Check the voltages supply to the motor wiring while someone works the switches. If you have the voltages - repair or replace the motor.


How do you repair a driver's door power window on a 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE that will not go up or down using the window switch?

In some cases, all you need to do is hit the inside of the car door with a rubber mallet. This causes the brushes in the motor to make better contact with the armature and make the window motor run. You want to do this while holding the power window button in the up or down position while hitting the door with a mallet. It may take 2 people to do this!!! If this does not work, then there are either problems with the switch or the motor. Easiest fix is to get replacement parts from the junkyard!!!!

Your 1995 4runner rear window will not roll up or down you can't find a fuse for your power windows or doors but the rest of your windows work does this sound like a bad motor?

Yes. If you're talking about the tailgate window, the problem most likely started because the regulator (the part that transfers the power of the motor to the window is rusted so it can no longer move. Sometimes the motor can be salvaged; and simply replacing the regulator will do the trick. Before you replace the motor, you might want to check the window lock button. I accidently pushed it once while cleaning my 92 4Runner. The rear window would'nt come down and I thought it was a burnt out motor. I then discovered the lock button had been activated and after deactivating it (pushing it), the window worked fine.


Window won't go up on g35 Infiniti?

Most likely the window motor is failing. Hit the center of the door liner with your fist while pushing the switch to raise the window. This will only work a few times. Replace the motor.


How do you replace a rear glass window motor in a 2001 sport trac?

Removal and Installation NOTE: The power rear window motor can be removed and a new one installed without removing the seat or trim panel. NOTE: When the power rear window motor is removed and installed, the motor must be initialized. For additional information, refer to Rear Window Motor Initialization in this section. # Fold down the passenger rear seat back. # Open the luggage compartment trim panel access door.# Remove the spare tire jack and handle assembly.# NOTE: The rear window glass water shield uses a reusable butyl rubber adhesive. A new water shield does not have to be installed unless it is damaged or if the butyl rubber adhesive does not adhere to a section of the sheet metal. Position the carpet aside and position the water shield back from the rear window glass motor to access bolts.# CAUTION: Use care not to damage the drum housing when removing the rear window glass motor. NOTE: Apply pressure to the drum while removing the rear window motor to avoid extraction of the drum with the motor. Remove the rear window motor. ## Disconnect the electrical connector. ## Remove the bolts. ## Remove the rear window glass motor.# NOTE: The rear window motor must be initialized after a repair is carried out. For additional information, refer to Rear Window Motor Initialization in this section. To install, reverse the removal procedure. (PASTED IN BELOW) == CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure. NOTE: The rear window motor is in error mode when shipped and will be inoperative until initialized. NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window glass module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system. NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure. NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed. NOTE: Step 7 requires that the power rear window control switch be held in the CLOSE position (fully clockwise) until the power rear window motor stalls the window into the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the OPEN position. NOTE: Step 9 requires that the power rear window control switch be held in the CLOSE position (fully clockwise) until the window stalls into the upper header seal and the window carries out its down-up sequence, indicating successful completion of initialization. NOTE: The key-in-ignition chime can cause the vent button to be pressed more or less than six times due to the distraction of the chime. # NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes. Start with the ignition in the OFF position. Open the driver door.# Turn the ignition to the ON position. # Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.# Turn the ignition to the OFF position. The driver door must be OPEN. # Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.# Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move down-up-down-up approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialization mode. # Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the CLOSE position until the window stalls into the upper header seal.# Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the OPEN position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.# Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the CLOSE position. Continue to hold the switch until after the window stalls into the upper header seal and carries out the down-up movement. This down-up movement is approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.# Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions. If the window does not operate correctly, carefully repeat this procedure.


How to raise the driver side window to have room to remove the power window motor in a 2000 Mazda MPV when the motor is seized.?

Completely remove the inside door panel. Since the window is down, the two screws that hold the window glass to the regulator should be easily acessable. Remove these two screws. Disconnect the regulator from the window glass. Push the window glass up to the very top. A bungy cord can be used to hold the glass up while the motor is being removed. Hook the bungy cord to the top of the door. Hook the other end to the bottom of the window glass.


Is there such a machine as a self running generator?

How do you troubleshoot motorized windows in a car?

First try all of the windows up and down. Write down exactly which windows do not move in response to a switch. Mention whether they fail with the driver-side master switch, the switch by that window or both.If the window is up and can still make a twitch up when you hit an up switch than you know the motor and its power is OK so your list of causes is cut down significantly. Even if the motor does not make the window twitch listen carefully with the engine off and the ignition on to hear whether there is a hum coming from the motor while you hold the switch down. Again that indicates power and that a switch is OK but doesn't say anything about the motor itself.
