Power Window Not Working Due to Window Motor on Buick Century

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.

My power window motor has failed on my front driver side door at around 90,000 miles. this was a second hand car, but I expected the motor to last.

Front door passenger window motor stopped working. Currently front drivers side window will intermmittently go down 3 inches and stop. When time comes to roll it up it will only go up only 1 inche at a time and we have to let it rest 5-10 minutes between attempts to use power window switche to get it back up all the way. I am still shopping around to replace both driver and passenger side power window motors.

Power window goes down fine, but coming up is slow and stops in mid stream. Waiting and trying again gets me a bit more until, after several waiting periods, it gets to the top. I,ll purchase another window motor and install it myself.
I've had to replace all the window motors in my car.

Two windows dont work and i just replaced engine bc the headgasket went. In turn the shop had to replace the starter and alternator bc car wouldnt shut off now they are saying i need a new belt. I didnt need a new belt before repair but now i can clearly hear i need one. Also the wipers have a mind of their own and im replacing almost all of the low beams and blinkers. Talk about a bad week. Total cost is more than blue book but i was already in too deep with repairs to stop. Thank u life. This is fun.

ALL 4 OF MY WINDOWS WILL FALL DOWN. I HAVE THEM HELD UP WITH RODS IN DOORS RIGHT NOW. THEY WON'T ROLL UP AND THERE IS NO NOISE IN DOOR.

All 4 windows went out with in 1 month of each other. 3 windows won't stay up 1 won't go down. With manifold leak I'll never buy another one.

My issue is exactly as described on your website, one of my window motors is slow and will stop midway but will be able to continue going up more after I wait a few minutes before trying again, sometimes I will have to repeat that to get my window up all the way, my rear windows are just somewhat slow but go up and down fine other than being slow. drivers-side window works pretty good. I still have not had any of my window motors replaced yet.
All new motor and one magician to put it in.
