Electric Window Problems

Provided by:

Reader Question Hello Austin,I hope you are well. My daughter is having trouble with the Electric Windows of her 1992/1993 Nissan Sunny 1.4 LX. I don't have much detail but, apparently, sometimes the windows work OK and sometimes they only raise and lower just a bit.

The driver's window is definitely affected and possibly some of the others, but at the moment I am not sure how many.

Would you please let me know what you think is causing the problem and what would be a reasonable repair time per window, because I don't want her to get ripped off by the car mechanic.

Best Wishes
Eric, Gloucester, England, UK.


Thanks for your email. A quick and easy "shade tree mechanic" test for a faulty electric window motor and or switch is:

1, Turn the ignition key to the on position (so the windows will operate)
2. Engine should be OFF
3. Leave the driver door open so the dome light (the light in the roof) is illuminated
4. Hold down the electric window switch on the window that is NOT working.
5. Look at the dome light as you try to move the window up and down with the switch.

If the window does NOT move, but the dome light dims as you toggle the switch up and down, chances are you have a bad electric window motor inside the door panel. The dome light dims, because the faulty window motor is trying to lift the window, thus sucking power from the battery and that drain on the battery is dimming the dome light.

With the window switch depressed take the fist of your hand and bang on the lower part of the inside door panel on the door with the affected window. Sometimes this banging can "kick start" a weak window motor, but replacing the window motor is still needed to.

Faulty Car Power Electric Windows

Provided by:

Reader Question: My question is that my driver’s side power window has stopped working. I had the motor replaced 1 year ago and at that time it worked – just slow and sometimes would get stuck midway.

This time it just stopped completely. It is all the way up and when I press the switch, no motor sound happens. All I hear is clicking from the power button on the console.

My rear passengers’ side I could get to go down with my console button but the button on the console would not roll the window up. I had to use the button on the door to get the window up.

Just recently, the console button has started to work to roll the rear window up again.

Do you think the motor is bad again or is the console switch bad?



Hey Wanda,

These types of problems can be tricky to diagnose without taking the interior door panel apart and testing the switches and motors independently.

I will say it sound like you have a switch problem or did have a switch problem with the "master" switch on the driver door and your rear passenger window going down but not coming up when you used the master switch.

It sounds like you do have a problem with that part of the master switch, so there could also be a problem with the driver side window on the master switch as well.

Since you have mentioned that the window would operate slowly or get stuck going up half way after you had the motor replaced it would tell me you either got a cheap or defective window motor.

The master switch has a problem and works sometimes or the window is binding in the doorframe and the motor is having a hard time pushing the window back up.

Power Window Regulator Repair

Provided by:

As you drive up to the drive in window at the bank, you reach for the switch to lower your window and nothing happens. The switch moves but the window does not budge. Not even a noise from the window motor can be heard which strongly suggests to you that the device is not functioning.

You must stop your car and open up the door to pay the attendant before continuing on your trip. Thoughts of an expensive car repair bill are dancing through your head, putting you in a foul mood and tempering the anticipated fun of your getaway weekend.

Don’t despair: you can repair the power window yourself and save a bundle over expensive dealership charges. Let’s take a look at the steps you can take to fix the problem yourself and save a lot of cash in the process.

Before assuming that the window regulator must be replaced you should first rule out the possibility of dirty electrical contacts.

On most cars the main power for all switches goes through the master switch located at the driver’s console. Sometimes the switch is dirty causing the window to malfunction. If this is the case, take the necessary steps to clean the contact and your problem should be resolved.

Should you determine that the contacts are clean and your switch is functioning, then it is likely that the motor has burned out and is in need of replacing.

Whether you are installing a Honda window regulator or a Volkswagen window regulator, or a regulator for any other make the steps involved in replacing a window regulator are usually quite similar:

1. Remove the door panel for the affected window.

2. Locate and remove the bolts holding the regulator to the door; it is likely you will have to manually lower the window in order to access the bolts.

3. Remove the old regulator, disconnect all wiring, and replace the old regulator with a new one you have purchased from a parts supplier. Shop online to find the best value as you will pay a mint if you order one through a dealership.

4. Tighten the bolts holding the new regulator and reinstall the moisture barrier. Make sure all the wires are put back in the door before closing the door panel.
