my drivers side power window randomly decided to not go up. its going to rain on sunday, that's my time limit to fix it.

it was not slowing down or getting progressively worse, I put it down on my way from work. all I did in the mean time was leave it on accessory for an hour or so while charging my phone. when I came back out to get my phone and put the window up it didn't work. the lights dim when I press the button, as if its trying but I hear no noise from the door panel. passenger window works fine. any ideas before I start removing the door card?

Fuse?

Can you pull up on the window while using the switch?

pull the door card off again, un bolted the motor so I could access it, smacked it with a screwdriver, and it worked again. bad brushes or contacts in the motor? the motor is not weak, it chugs pretty damn fast.

My advice is to replace it. I fought one in my wife's Mustang for a while. Took it out two or three times, cleaned and lubed the gearbox, took the motor apart and cleaned the brushes and commutator, and it would work great until you let it sit for a few days then nothing. If you used it everyday no problem. Beats the heck out of me what happens to them sometimes - I finally got tired of taking the door apart. Wish I had some other advice. Clay

I never replaced it until it got stuck down a month later while it was raining. I think i beat a world record on door card removal and replacement. But I bought a new one the following weekend.
