Default Advice On a Window

(Now that I have found the correct forum)

Hi Folks,

My passenger side rear window has just stopped working. It will not go down using either button. Should I assume this is a bad motor, or motor-related? Is there something else to consider?

Thanks,
John

John..I fear you will need to pull the door panel and test the input to the motor for power etc when trying the switches.

Bill,

I'm afraid you are correct. I haven't noticed any motor noise when I try to lower the window. I do notice a change in the volt meter when I press the button, though.

Aren't there instructions how to remove the door panel i "techinfo"?

Thanks,
John

Yes..Techinfo is your friend. I used it when I was a new member to change a mirror.

Default Update

Hi Gang,

The fix was much too easy! Being this was a rear passenger side window, it never gets much use. Seems the window was just stuck in place. I applied downward pressure while holding the button down, and it started working again. I cycled it up/down 10 times or so, just to make sure. I guess if you dont use 'em, you can lose 'em.

Thanks
John
