My window went down and did not come back up. If you press button down you can hear it trying to work, but.. when you press up..sometimes you hear it trying to work.
right rear window went down and won't come up. Problem not fixed yet.
Right back seat window is rolled down and will not roll back up.
Driver rear window not rolling up or down. Power windows.
Rear passenger side window won't work
My driver door window and passenger window frequently (every 5 months or so) get stuck completely down or half way down.
The drivers side unit on the door was replaced once - the unit that controls all the automatic door locks and all the power windows - and it stopped working about 6 months ago. I cannot open the windows at all. I replaced the fuse, but still doesn't work. Thinking it may be the unit again, a switch under the unit, or a faulty wire in between the door.
Passenger window won't go up.
Driver's side front power window failed. Buy a new one at an autoparts store and replace yourself. Not hard and will save you bucks (find out how to disassemble interior trim and replace unit online).
Both the front & back windows on the passenger side of the Jeep are not longer functioning!
Plastic clip broke off cable end. Replaced window motor.
right front window up and down electronic mechanism not working
