Power Window Not Working Due to Window Motor on Oldsmobile Achieva

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

first one failed last year, next one can't be rolled down very far without jamming,(takes multiple starts to get up) now 3rd is starting the same. One functioning window left! May try replacing motor on one but am wondering if it is really the motor or a sensor, or electrical malfunction. thanks for the info! nice to hear motor replacement worked, even if only for a few years.
