2001 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 60 000 miles

front driver window will only roll back up a couple of inches at at a time. Sometimes you have to wait a while before it will move up at all. Will always roll down?
Do you

The power window may be shutting off its circuit breaker, or it may be a bum track or motor. They used a circuit breaker, but it could be just a bad motor, drawing to much amperage. The window motor failing was common. You can spray silicone in the tracks if it is sticking also.

Thanks joe, by circut breaker, do you mean the fuse or is the circut breaker a different part and if so, where is it located?

The 2001 minivavs used one circuit breaker to protect both front window wiring, motors and switches. If the passenger power window is ok, its not a bad relay, the relay is near or behind the left side kick panel, to the left of your foot, as your driving. It's probably either the motor thats bad, or its regulator track needs lubrication. I used to spray up both sides of the glass runs with spray silicone, and pull the window up and push it down, sometimes it helped the motor draw less power. If that wouldn't work the door trim panel would need to be removed, as the track or motor regulator assembly needed to be looked at.
Each track could be lubricated but the motor could still be bad. Try the spray lubricant first, and then take off the panel and see if you can lube it up. You'll see how the mechanism works when you remove the panel. Use white grease, or any good lubricant. Its because of the temperature change.
Fall and winter were the busiest times, and the summer was plenty of a/c work. If you need more help just ask, ok
Mr. Arnold. Glad to help.
