Window wont roll up
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:55:56 PM »
I have power windows. The other day, right before snow hit my passenger window decided to work again. About a month ago I noticed it was no longer rolling down. The other day however I noticed the window was down about an inch. When pressing up the window goes down and nothing happens in other direction. Right now the window is stuck half way open..
Any suggestions?

Try it with the door open, and maybe someone assisting it.

With the panel off check all the connections for corrosion, then have someone work the switch as you check things with a multi-meter. Wiggle the harness a bit too, check for a broken wire that's making intermittent contact.

Take all four panels off and lube everything up. If one's bad the rest need attention as well.

My driver's door window goes backwards when the motor bolts holding it to the door come off
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.
