windows will not go down or up only drivers button makes clicking noise tried to replace switch no change
When I bought the car the all the Windows began to periodically stop working and then they like work. Then it started happening more often until finally none of them work. The sunroof still works so I don't believe it's the relay. What could be the issue?
no windows work, drivers window buzzes when pressed. new switch just installed. same problem that was supposedly "fixed" once
i have same problem with windows but massive electrical shorts and i keep spending money and no body can find short. maunly front panel, have to be jumped to drive, battery and alternator are good, heat barely works, i believe heater core needs blown outand cleaned, flushed radiator and it was disgusting. but i am a disabled single mom of 3 a person helping me is getting fed up and wants me to buy battery, and i REALLY think its electrical. also lights don't work correctly, right rear turn signal out. car seems to be possesd like carrie, but engine is excellentcondition. PLEASE email me the information of electrical wires and any advice. i don't know a lot about cars, but must use friends as mechanics due to my limited finances. so i have to have a chart of wiring and cant find one. thank you so much. its getting cold here. And i have heart condition and cant walk and carry loads of groceries in extreme temperatures. ty again :)
Rear windows rolled down and won't go back up and push them up manually but they just called back down
Windows on both driver and passenger side would get 'stuck' in the down position. When it first began, I could hear the mechanism straining, but no longer. Eventually, after many tries, shutting the engine off and starting again, it would go up. I don't gamble with it because one day soon it will just get stuck down. Now the sunroof gets stuck open so once it closed again for me, I haven't used it since. Still trying to find the source of this problem to fix.
Yes my driver and passenger side window does not roll down at all when I opened driver or passenger front doors the cargo like th the cargo light will not come on what seems to be the problem here
the rain drips on the switches so get the aftermarket "shades" for the windows. Once they dry out they should be fine, mine were.
The driver's side window and back patent side window are stuck down! I can not roll down the other two. I checked breaker and send fine this just happen yesterday
90 Regal Custom, 2 door. Driver's side front window stopped working. First it would get stuck halfway open & pressing the switch just made a loud clicking or grinding sound. For a while I was able to manually close the window by pulling up on glass while pressing the switch. Eventually switch stopped working completely & window was stuck closed. Replacing window motor solved the problem. Has been fine now for almost 10 years.
