Electric Window Problems

1535 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  srsnyder
I've been having a problem with my driver's side window sticking (stops working). There does not seem to be any problem with any of my other three electric windows - I use them all the time with zero problems.

How can I check to find out if the problem is with the switch or the motor (actuator?)? If I put the window down I can 'play' with the switch and it will go back up but I've been stuck a few times and had to leave the window down (didn't have time to keep 'playing' with the window switch). The motor (actuator) does not sound like it's making any noises and the speed of the up/down seems to be normal (on the rare occasion I can get it to work).

Problem found

This is an OLD post that I started but I thought I report my conclusion. I finally pulled the door multi-switch out and started 'hot-wiring' posts till I figured out what electrical connector (on the switch) made the windows go up and down. I isolated the drivers side window for 'up' and 'down' and had no problem getting it to go down but I had to bypass the switch to get it back up. So...I 'hot-wired' the window up...broke off the post that controls the window down (so I don't accidentally put it down) and now I need to order a new multi-switch...clearly the switch was bad.
