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.

  • The driver's side power window stopped working; had motor replaced. About 1 year later, had the same problem and had to replace the motor again. No problems since; still have the vehicle.

    We have had to replace the motors in both front doors and also the switches. They are being replaced for a second time and the mileage is about 100,000

    Drivers side window will not close. At times it will inch its way should allowingtime for motor to cool sometimes it will close completely on first attempt after allow short period to cool. Problem seems to be more frequent when it is raining or cold, but that could be because that is when windo is opened ans closed in quick succession.
