Well my wife came home with both passenger side windows stuck down last night....she wasn't happy so I pulled off the front door panel and the window started working. I measured only a 10volt drop across motor...now she did get a car wash since it got above freezing and she called me to tell me the windows on that side were moving slowly...any ideas???:icon_rolleyes:

The windows dont have limit switches as such to stop activation but the motor just stalls when a certain resistance is encountered . If the resistance is too great due to drag caused by say , dirt or ice then they could stall . Lubricate the window runners and see if this helps . However another problem can arise with age , but usually the drivers window as this is the most used. The gearbox design at the motor is weak where the gearbox cog shaft connects to a metal disc . This can wear and eventually fail under load .
