have someone check the wiring of the window control panel, if its not that, its your window motor, for a '90 a used motor from a junk yard probably wouldn't be more than 30 bucks

What is the problem with the window?

The if that window is the only one not going up and down, its the motor, or maybe even a short in the wiring. ** My 4 door went out one window at the time.

If the 2002 Beetle window is crooked, then the problem could be that the window track is loose or damaged. If the electric system wont move the window up or down, check the fuse and window relay for a problem.

If it is electric windows it is the motor which needs replacing or it could be the regulator

Begin by removing the inside door panel. Remove the wiring harness from the electric window regulator. Remove the window regulator retaining screws.

the window regulater has a nylon tape that runs the window up and down. the tape can be purchased fromm the parts store

Two common culprits are found to be the cause of electric window problems with a Ford Focus. The first is that the power window motor has burned out. The second is the window coming off track.

I have a 2000 oldsmobile and i had this problem with the drivers side. come to find out it was the switch and not the motor. If you check with a local junk yard you can pick up a good one for half the cost. I did replace the window motor but it still didnt work. i recommend the switch first then if that doesnt fix it then invest in teh window motor. save urself some money.

Buy a new window switch part #5L1Z14529AA easy fix!.. It's a very common problem the drivers window sticks when going up

I had a similar problem with a Toyota Corolla. Could be worth a shot There may be a window lock button (usually near the drivers electric window controls). That causes the controls from all, except the driver's, to be unresponsive.

The electric windows on a 406 might behave weird if you disconnect the battery. But holding down the "window-down" on drivers side for 10 seconds or so should fix it.

Plastic thing that attaches window glass to the window motor might be broken.

Is there a separate fuse for every electric window in the 1999 landcruiser and if there is where are they.

The Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra window lift motor is located inside of the door. Each window is equipped with a window lift motor.

intermitting problem with no power at drivers door

Window motor i'd say. Both of mine have given up. โ‚ฌ270 from Toyota for one, they can be had for ยฃ20 from eBay

If your drivers side window operates properly it is not a fuse problem. Both windows work off of the same fuse. You most likely have a window motor or regulator problem. I would start by pulling off the door panel and rehook up the switch and see if you have any movement. If not check for power. If you have power it is the motor!

Electric Window problemIf you haven't checked already, check to see if the window is in the track and not out of the track and then check the regulator to see if one or more teeth are broken or may have come disconnected. Hope that might help also sometimes the motor works but doesn't have enough strength to lift the window had that problem on my 1987 Nissan wagon had to rebuild the window motor. or if it is on track the cable linkig might have snapped my 95 did same on driver window
