electric window wont go down
There are a number of things that could be causing a malfunction of your power window.
First off, is it only one window that won't go down? If so, it might be a single connection, switch, or motor that's not working.
If all power windows aren't working, then it might be a fuse or relay. Check the fuse box that contains the power window fuse and see if the fuse or relay is intact.
in either direction but there's no movement it's the track or the gear. If there's no sound check fuses and then the switch (remove the switch and jump the terminals)
If this answer is acceptable please return and mark it.
I purchased a 1991 Silverado for my son and the windows worked fine for a month and then they started to stop and go at times. I replaced the switches and checked the relay and all were fine. I then took the panel apart and it looks like the previous owner made speaker holes in them and damaged some of the wires in the process. I checked to see if the switches were getting any juice and the lock switch is and the window switches would go on and then dim to off. I touched the relay and it was very hot. So I'm looking at replacing the door wiring harness to see if that is a fix, problem is that the harness is an obsolete part at the stealers and at any aftermarket supplier :O( Any help would be appreciated :O)
Alright, there are some different things going on with all the vehicles in this thread. Let me try to go thru a few issues that I have run into over the years.
First off, as was said before, check your fuses. Most of the time you can find a diagram for the fuses in the owners manual or on the back of the cover(s) for the fuse box(es).
Next, you need to check for power at your window switch. If you are not getting power to the switch, the problem could very well be in the harness where it goes thru the door jamb. This is a very common place for the wires to chafe and break or corrode. I have found the problem in the wire harness more times than not.
Next, using a wire diagram and a connector pinout chart, check that the switch is working by looking for power going toward the window motor.
Before blaming the motor, try all of these other problems. A great deal of the time, the motor is not the problem. No sense tearing the door all apart to change the window motor if you don’t have to. It can be difficult.
If more than one window is giving you trouble, the problem is most likely in the switch and wires. If your motors are running slow, there is most likely an issue with the wiring, particularly the ground.
I think I might have covered most of the issues.
If you decide that the power window motor is bad (which is very common), be sure to inspect the faulty motor. If you take it apart, you may find that there are 3 disintegrated nylon plugs that have deteriorated between the plastic gear and drive gear. If they have gone bad, you can replace them with new plugs found at NAPA (about $8. I think they are only listed for fords, but they aren't rocket science. They can be trimmed to fit) instead of spending $50 on a new motor.
These plugs are found on power window motors and headlight motors (older pontiacs).
today i was driving and i put my window down a bit and had my blowers on. i got to where i was going and when i went to drive my car again the windows wont go in either direction and the blowers wont turn on. this happens at the same time and when this happens the check engine light comes on. What is going on with my car and is it expensive to have fixed?
