For the past couple of weeks, the power window on the drivers side has been acting up. Part of the time it works fine. Part of the time it goes very slow, or it will not work at all (but if you wait a few minutes, it will start working again. Will go up a few inches. Then you have to wait a few minutes before it will move again). Today that window is working ok. Now the passenger side window has started acting up. It rolled down, but now it won't roll back up.
The way my car is made. The controls for the windows are in the middle consol (not on the doors). There are only two buttons. One for each window.
I don't think it's the fuse. Or it looks like it would kill both windows at once (and the fuse looks fine). I'm guessing there's a separate window motor and regulator for each window in the doors. So since this is happening with both windows.I'm guessing that's probably not the cause (both motors or regulators wouldn't go out at once. Right?). So. Since the controls for both windows are in the middle consol together.I'm guessing that's where the problem is. I thought it might just be that the contacts between the controls got dirty (that's happened before), so I tried cleaning them the best I could. But it didn't help.
What else can I do to determine the exact problem? I called to check on a price for a new switch ($108 at Autozone), but I don't want to pay and change it out without knowing that will fix the problem.
Thanks for your time and assistance! :)
have the same problem?
