FAQsDry or worn weather-strip and tracks, dirty switch contacts, or damaged window regulator could be causing these problems.
FAQsMy window drops 2 to 3 inches from the upper window channel, then stops when I use the “Auto-Up” feature in my Toyota or Nissan. What’s causing this?
FAQsThe vehicle may have faulty wiring or a defective control switch. Most 2-wire window lift motors depend on a voltage polarity change to control direction. If the motor runs in one direction but not the other, the problem is most likely in the wiring or switch. On some older GM applications, the ground is always applied to the motor body, with direction switching being controlled by whichever of the two pins receives voltage.
FAQsWhat are the advantages of Phenolic pistons over steel?
FAQsWhat causes noisy operation or popping on a window lift motor with a cable-type regulator design?
FAQsWhat’s an anti-pinch safety feature?
FAQsCan I bench-test a case grounded motor?
FAQsDo all vehicles with power windows have an anti-pinch safety feature?
FAQsThe anti-pinch feature was introduced by Opel in 1986. Most vehicles built after 2008 with an auto-up and auto-down switch option have an anti-pinch safety feature.
FAQsWhy does my 2-wire window lift motor only run in one direction?
FAQsA motor equipped with an anti-pinch safety feature typically has 5 or more terminals or pins as well as an express-up feature on the window switch.
FAQsIs it necessary to reset a motor that has the anti-pinch safety feature after installation?
FAQsNoisy operation or a popping sound can be misdiagnosed as a window lift motor problem. What may actually be happening is the regulator cable hold-down may be broken or missing; this would allow the cable to snag on the window regulator bracket as the window is raised, producing the noise. Install a new hold-down or suitable substitute.
FAQsNot if the motor is installed and is not disturbed from its factory-set position. If the motor is operated before being coupled to regulator, then it will need to be reset.
FAQsThe likely cause is a window lift motor that was bench-tested or operated before being installed into the window regulator. This action cancels the upper limit position. All express up/down motors are shipped in the “full up” position and should not be bench-tested until fully coupled with the regulator. If disturbed, the motor’s travel limits must be set for the motor to know whether the window is closed or open. Follow the correct procedure as stated in a vehicle specific service manual or web-based tutorial to set travel limits.
FAQsAn external module monitors the rotation of the internal gear. If there is a change in the pulse train of the sensor before the window if fully closed, the module will interpret this change as something preventing the window from moving easily, which causes the module to change polarity to the motor to reverse its direction.
FAQsHow can I tell if my vehicle has an anti-pinch window lift motor?
FAQsHow does the anti-pinch safety feature work?
FAQsMost 2-terminal or 2-wire motors are grounded through the control switch; however, some older applications use the motor housing as a common ground. If power supply and ground are applied directly to the terminals of a motor with this design, an internal short may result. These motors require a battery ground be directly applied to the housing, and then power can be applied to either terminal.
FAQsThe anti-pinch safety feature prevents the window glass from reaching the end of its upward travel when the system senses an obstacle in the path of the glass.
