Power windows go down slow after 1/2 way.

Both my front door windows go down fine at first. After they get more than 1/2 the way down they go really slow. The back door windows work fine. Does everbodys do this? Thanks.

Re: Power windows go down slow after 1/2 way.

My drivers front JUST started doing this...if you use the auto down feature, it will stop partially open.

It is also kind of intermittent...

They didn't used to do it...

Re: Power windows go down slow after 1/2 way.

Mine are just really slow, but it's only when the X is first started up. After the alternator juices the batteries back up, all is well.

I would definitely say that it's the 2nd half of the window rolling down that takes the longest. Don't try to roll down more than one window at a time, it takes quite a while. I like to "race" mine and see which one wins. The rears are always down before the fronts. The power windows draw quite a bit of juice.

My auto-down feature has never stopped mid-way through rolling the window down, it always opens it completely.

Re: Power windows go down slow after 1/2 way.

To clarify:

The window motor does not stop 1/2 way down...just the window...motor keeps going and I have to click the switch "up" to stop...

I think it is losing grip or something...

Worked great this AM (I have to fold in the DS mirror to get in and out of the garage so I lower and raise the window at least 2x/day even in the winter) so it is still intermittent...

Re: Power windows go down slow after 1/2 way.

Just noticed this post. I had this problem (drivers door), so I pulled the inner panel to see what's up. Turns out the runner the window slides down in is narrower at the bottom. Any junk at all causes the track to become sticky as it loads up with crap. Wiped it off with a cloth, then sprayed window lubricant (silicone spray'll work too) into the track, now everything's fine.

Score another brain fart on the design engineers part.

my drivers window will stop dead about 2/3 down without a little help from my hand. Doing this for 5 years, guess I'll clean the tracks out. It will go down ( but slowly ) all the way only if the drivers doors been sitting in HOT direct sunlight though. Thanks I almost bought a new regulator and motor on ebay because it just started to bother me enough to fix it.
