How To Fix Power Windows?

Problems with power windows are common. Problems with power windows are usually more electrical than mechanical. It is a matter of elimination.

The door control panels can sometimes be damaged. If the master control does not function, but the doors are controlled by the respective panels, the problem is with the main panel. 

If the problem comes with the power window regulator & motor, you can replace them with a high-quality auto glass repair shop. Doing power window regulator & motor replacement can save your time also.

If the window doesn't work with its own control but works with the master control, then it is most likely that the problem lies with the individual control switch. Also, you will need to inspect the wiring that runs through the door for damage, wear, or insulation cracks.

If you can narrow down the problem to the window motor at each door's individual door, you will need to remove the inner panel. The panel will have plastic push pins and bolts holding the armrest pad in position. 

To remove the pushpins, pull the panel around the perimeter and gently pull them out of the sockets. To remove most vehicle panels, you will need to move them up. To access the interior of the door, where the motor is located, remove the panel. Sometimes an electrical grounding issue is a problem. 

Restoring the ground connection is often enough to restore the window's function. You may need to replace the motor completely if you cannot fix the problem with the ground connection. Replace the door panel after repairs are completed. Check to make sure all switches and windows work.
