Default Driver side window.

When I move the switch on my driver side window, I just hear a small click noise, and the window doesn't move. It is a bad connector? Is the motor bad? Or is the cold just affecting it?

Smack the door panel about 8 inches below the mirror adjust joystick while holding the switch down. They stick occasionally, and this will jar it loose most of the time. You can also slam the door shut while holding the switch.

About once a month (usually in a drive-thru) my window does what he posted. Smack, and it opens. The old girl just needs to be reminded of who'* actually in command from time to time.

Chill your beans, partner. Shipping them with your other gift. Waiting for the last part of the package

I have had a 94 SE and eventually my driver'* window stopped working, hitting only worked for so long with me. I read somewhere that the clicking sound is the auto down feature responeded because the window won't go down.

Lately my drivers side rear window wont move. It doesnt even make a click tho. Earlier in the year it did it but after a good slam it worked. However, now the slam doesnt work. I dont think its the motor because right before it stopped working, it was moving just fine. Think its just the switch? If so, are they common enuf to get through a normal parts store? Or will I have to go to the dealer. Thanx, Bret
