Default stupid friggin windows

I am totally lost, when the regulators are out of the car they work, the motor turns, the sled moves up and down just as it should. But.......put it in the door to reinstall it, and it does nothing except click to let you know it is getting signal. I can't understand it.

The regulator fix went fine, and reinstalling them goes quite well, plug all the connections up and hit the switch and it just clicks . I have tried both regulator assemblies in the same door, I have switched the motors in and out, I have loosened the screws on the motors to releive pressure nothing works can anyone offer some advice or tips or anything.

Thanks,

Tim

Tim, Check the 30 A (pwr window) ckt. bkr. in the rear fuse block just for general measure. I'm not sure where else to begin with this one. The symptoms do not add up.

I'll check that, I hadn't thought of that just yet. You are very right the symptoms don't add up. Is there one circuit breaker or two? I'm gonna tackle it again today me and Archon have been talkin alot about this and I'm gonna take the whole assembly out again and remove the motor and try that. If both motors are functioning correctly, I don't where to go next. I'll report back to let everyone know what I find.


Thanks,

Tim

When my r/h front window stopped working, I pulled the door panel off and began to remove the motor assembly. As soon as the bolts were loose, the motor housing moved about 1/4 inch and freed itself up. I retightened the housing and it'* been working fine ever since.
Could it be that the housing is moving and it is binding itself up, like mine did?

Just my.02............

I looked into this a little for another member last week. The 30amp circuit breaker supplies power to all four doors. However there are three 10 amp fuses that supply power to the door modules. 1 fuse for each of the front doors & 1 for the rear doors. There should be 2 orange wires in each door that should have 12 volts. There are also 3 grounds. 2 -black/white 1-black

Thanks for the input everybody, I'm hopin that it is binding itself up. I need to get some more fuses anyway so I'll pick up some 10 amp while I'm at it.


Thanks again gang,


Tim

I can only hope GM fired the people responsible for this atrocious design although I suppose in a big company llike GM, the bean counters will get blamed. Same goes with the intake manifolds and a few other poor designs.

Same here, they should have been fired. But, they must have the same sucky people over at Ford also. My Dad and Step-mom saw a Crown Vic the other day, and the poor dude drivin' it had little wedges of wood holding his two back windows up.
