the motor might be bad on that side or there is just lose wiring. you will have to take off the door panel to find out which problem is causing this.

You should have a mechanic check your window to see if it is off track. If it is not, then they will be able to replace the computer so that your window works.

The window regulator ( the part that moves it up and down) has failed and will need replaced.

I need a module for the a chevrolet venture 2003 the the driver side window wont go down

Make sure the window lock button is not ON. Simple, I know. But I dissected the passenger door before I figured this out.

look for the wires that go to the driver window switch, there will be 3, two of them will make window go up, 2 will make window go down. use a small jumper wire to brige them

This might help. I saw a driver pull up to an ATM machine in front of my car and the passenger window rolled down behind the driver. My window was down and I heard the man ask the driver to pull up so he could have better access to the beryl.

if the windows switches are on the door panel, you may have broken wires between the door and the body.

I'm currently having the same issue and from what I've gathered over the past week online, it's one of two things. Either the window switch/connection is faulty OR the regulator. Mine happens to be the switch because the driver side switch for the passenger window works fine. Now my problem is if the passenger and driver switch mechanisms are interchangeable when purchasing?

Take ArmorAll that has the straw with it and roll the window all the way down or as far as it will go and spray it down on the inside of the door which is the inside of the door and that should help loosen the hinges making it easier to go up and down try this and see if it works ok.

You'll probably need to buy a new power window motor, if it's power window, that is.

A power window that does not "roll down" in a 1999 Toyota RAV4 is most likely the result of a faulty regulator. The regulator can be replaced by removing the door panel.

User Avatar

It seems as if there could be a problem with your motor. The metal in the motor may be swelling due to the heat and causing the window to stick.

The best thing to do, is take the inner part of the door open, and find what's jamming your window.

If it is not a bad switch, the cable moving the window up and down probably came loose or broke. The window regulator comes as an assembly which includes the motor, cable and track. It costs around $70. The passenger window on mine did this. I have found that if I grasp the top of the window and move it forward, toward the front of the car it gets back on track and works fine.

Check window regulator for voltage and if your window is off track, buy a tube of flowable silicone and duct tape the window and see if the track will drop when lowering the window with the motor. If the track lowers. Silicone the tracks and unduct tape the window and slowly ease the window into the track, sometimes you want a screw driver outside the vehicle to hold the window in the direct path of the track. Once you get the window in the track, push down hard and allow the motor to bring the window to the top and allow to dry 24 hours.

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

Oh yes!! I just got busted at the inspection station. VA. law states that the drivers side window is the only window that must work on it's own power to pass inspection.
