Many times, we can diagnose the problem with your windows in less than 60 seconds. Be sure to be on the lookout for the following window problems. This way, you’ll know when to bring your vehicle to Houston Car Window Repair.
Window Stops Working
There are many reasons why the window might have stopped working. First, assess the problem. Does the glass move only a few inches before it stops, waits for a few moments, then starts again? If that’s the case, the power motor is going and will need to be replaced. If that’s not what’s happening, listen closely as you attempt to use the window. Do you hear the motor running? If the motor isn’t running, it might not be getting power, or the motor might have an open circuit.
There are two ways to check if the motor is getting power. One is only for professionals: open up the door panel, access the wiring, and use a test light or meter to test the motor. An easier way is to simply start the car and turn on the headlights and interior lights. Then try to use the window. If the headlights and interior lights dim slightly, this means that the switch is working, but the motor is bad. Make sure you also try this with one of the working windows to gauge just how much the headlights/interior lights dim during normal operation. If, however, there’s no change at all when you use the switch on the faulty window, the switch itself may be bad. Either way, you should give us a call and come in for repairs.
Window is Off the Track or Binding
Vehicle windows don’t just hop off the track. If the window does look like it’s off the track, this usually means that the regulator is bad. Usually, window regulators use either metal gears (which rarely fail) or a plastic cable-and-pulley design (which frequently fails). If the window has fallen, you’ll need to replace the regulator. If the glass is uneven, the regulator needs repairs. You’ll hear the motor when you push the switch, but the window won’t work properly.
More about Window Regulators
The window regulator is located within the car door, and it helps to raise and lower that particular window. We use our windows all the time, so the window regulators and motors experience high wear and tear and frequently break. Some common problems include excessive strain and breakage, damaged window tracks, old or worn cables and pulley lines, and general wear and tear.
The switch applies power to the window motor. Depending on which direction you depress it, the switch will supply the power to the motor to either move the window up or move it down. Usually you’ll find your window switches in a group of buttons on the door (usually the front driver’s side), but sometimes they’ll be on the console or dash. They’re often found near the door locks.
