window goes halfway up or dowm wait 5 min then works
Window goes up hafeway then stops. you wait then it goes up.
Prdiver side power window goes down fine. But stops after a fiew inches when the weather is warm. Works fine when the weather is cool.
i do have this problem, everytime i try to roll the windows up i have to help the window cause the motor stops working and needs to cool off or something ,to do it again but is just frustrating
Power windows work for a couple seconds then you gotta wait a few minutes for them to move again.
Have to let cool after each use. Got worse over time until quit altogether..
Both motors have been replaced
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
Both windows fail to operate now
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.
window motor overheats
