View Full Version : Passenger Side and Rear Driver side windows are sporatic

03-09-2009, 08:25 AM
Every couple of days, my passenger side window and the Rear driver side windows won't roll down. After a few days, they start working again as normal. It doesn't matter which switch I try to use to roll them down, they just don't work. And then, after several days, they work as normal.

Any one have any ideas what's wrong?

Loose connector in the door? Is it cold? they will freeze shut

No they aren't froze shut. The past 3 days have had temps in the 70s.
Plus I've been able to roll them up in down in cold weather.

Where are the connectors in the door at?

You have to pull the door panel(s) off to get to them. The screws are king of hidden but if you do a search there is a thread here about how to take them off.

Can you get to the underside of the window controls without taking the door panels loose?

Im pretty sure the electronic switches just pop up out of the door panel. You just need to work them out with a small screwdriver just be careful you dont break something.

Im willing to bet that if the switches arent the problem you have a window motor going bad and it is just working when it wants to.

Yeah. They pop out w/ a screwdriver.

Both windows are working great today.
Going to try and pop out the window controls later this week.
