My problem is just the opposite..sorta.. I can only get my window to close during the initialization process. It will not go down. I have replaced bothte regulator and motor wit the same results. Where can I get the pinouts of the switch and window motor/harness to verify the outputs/inputs?

SECTION 501-11: Glass, Frames and Mechanisms 2001 Explorer Sport/Sport-Trac Workshop Manual
GENERAL PROCEDURES Rear Window Motor Initialization My back automatic window went - s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.

  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialized mode.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions.

    Power Rear Window

    NOTE: The power rear window motor is not on the multiplex link. Any diagnosis and testing carried out on the power rear window will not involve the GEM module.

    The power rear window motor is a 8-pin motor with integral electronics. The power rear window control switch is located on the instrument panel adjacent to the radio and provides a ground signal to the motor to signal an open, close or vent request. The integral electronics on the motor allow the power rear window to be moved to three positions: fully open, fully closed and vent (approximately two inches down from fully closed). The control switch is rotated clockwise and released to fully close the window, rotated counterclockwise and released to fully open the window, and pushed and released to actuate the window to the vent position.

    The power rear window motor plastic pinion gear is mated to the drum housing of a single rail drum and cable window regulator. The motor is attached to the plastic drum housing by three screws. The motor uses internal Hall effect sensor feedback coupled to the microprocessor, to determine window position and operate the power rear window. If the microprocessor is not receiving the Hall effect sensor pulses, the motor will run for approximately half a second, then enter error mode (window will become inoperative). The motor contains a thermal breaker to protect the motor windings from over-current/over-temperature operation. Continued successive operation of the motor will cause the thermal breaker to open, causing a loss of power until the power rear window motor cools.

    The power rear window motor operates with the ignition switch in the RUN/ACC position only and is sensed by the RUN/ACC and logic ground inputs. The motor is supplied with battery power and draws a key off load of approximately 1 mA. All of the high current required to move the window is supplied through the battery and motor ground inputs. The loss of either logic or motor ground will cause this system to become inoperative. For correct functionality, both power feeds and both ground feeds must be intact at the power rear window motor.

    If a down or vent command is selected while the ignition switch is in the RUN/ACC position, and the ignition switch is turned to OFF or START, the window will move to the fully open or vent position and stop. If an up command is selected while the ignition switch is in the RUN/ACC position, and the ignition switch is turned to OFF or START, the window will stop if it is between vent and fully closed, or will move to the vent position and stop if it is between vent and fully open.

    If an obstacle is detected in the power rear window opening as the window is closing upward, the window will automatically reverse direction and move toward the fully open position. This is known as "bounce-back". If, during a bounce-back condition the window stops, and the power rear window control switch is released, then held in the up direction for at least two seconds, the window will travel up with no bounce-back protection (security override). If the ignition switch is turned to OFF or START, the window will reverse direction with bounce-back re-enabled. Ice, contaminant buildup, and environmentally induced tight spots in the window seals are all possible uses for the security override feature.

    If power (B+) is disconnected from the power rear window motor while the window is in motion, the motor will enter position recovery mode when power is restored. Position recovery mode allows up and down movement of window in 15 mm (0.6 in) increments until the motor stalls the window glass in the upper header seal. If no internal or external faults exist, the motor will automatically resume normal operation.

    The power rear window control switch is supplied with illumination and illumination ground inputs used to illuminate the control switch when the headlamp switch is turned to the PARK or ON position. These switch inputs do not affect operation of the window. The control switch uses the main ground input which is transferred to the open, closed, or vent outputs by closing a switch contact. If the main ground signal is missing, the window will become inoperative.

    If the power rear window control switch, or its associated wiring, develops an open circuit, that function will become inoperative. If the open contact or associated wiring develops an open circuit, the window will only travel to the vent or fully closed positions. If the close contact or associated wiring develops an open circuit, the window will only travel to the fully open or vent positions. If the vent contact or associated wiring develops an open circuit, the window will only travel to the fully open or closed positions.

    The power rear window motor will suspend normal operation if a power rear window control switch error exists. A control switch error is defined as open and close, open and vent, close and vent, or open, close and vent energized at the same time. The window will be inoperative if a control switch error is present.

    If the motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, or if a new motor is installed, the window must be initialized. A new motor will be in error mode and inoperative until initialized. Refer to Rear Window Motor Initialization in this section. For positioning the window regulator for glass removal/installation, refer to Rear Window Positioning in this section.

    The power rear window will automatically adjust to system changes throughout its life. Changes in seal drag and slight changes in the fully closed position will occur and are automatically compensated for. Once initialized, the motor will soft stall into the upper and lower positions, contributing to the extended durability of the system.

Dirver side power seat not working?


I've got a 2005 Passat GLX (bought it new); took it in for an oil change, and the mechanic also cleaned my cabin filter. I leave his shop and I realize I don't have power seats no more on the driver's side (passenger side fine)....neither backward/forward or up and down, (separate motors, I believe)....Coincidence????? I don't know-never had any problems before. The car has 65,000 original miles.

The guy checked the fuses on the dashboard driver side, near door....seemed alright. They were closing so he told me to come back Monday....I'm thinking of taking it back to dealer (I lost trust in this guy).

Any thoughts on what could have gone wrong???

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

2005 ford 500 seat won't go forward, but will go up and down and lean back don't have manual to check right fuse.


I don't know for sure about the Ford 500 but in general the manufacturers don't have a lot of room for extra fuses and wires so probably only one fuse goes to the seat or seats. I would find the fuse box and hopefully the fuses are all labeled.

I assume the seat at one time went forward and backward. What can stop it from doing this is something like a rock getting in the gear and stopping the motor from moving or maybe just dying on its own. It could instead be a wire or connector.

I hope this helps.

Had rear brakes replaced about a month and half, had a thunking noise. took back, said i had tar on tire causing noise. said it would go away, after 3 to 4 weeks got worst, only heard noise when applying...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Even if you are missing a lug nut it won't make a noise if the rest are tight. I suspect that the problem will be on the wheel bearing. The wheel bearing can be worn out that's why you hear a noise. I suggest that you go for the wheel bearing replacement to resolve the issue.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The windows in the back seat won't go up...there was no sound...one window is stuck about 5 inches from the top and won't go up or down


Try replacing the fuse for your back windows or you might have to replace the electric motor that operates the back windows.

How do I find a fuse diagram for a 2001 Toyota Celica the right front passenger window will not go up or down


Go to a local repair shop that has a Data Base
& have them print what you need

Check all fuses,don't need a diagram for that

If any window works,it won't be the fuse

If the fuse is blown,replacing it won't fix anything
It will blow again,

So,you will need to check switches first,then remove
the door panel to access the window motor or
window regulator.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2001 what fuse for the power windows part #


I've been messing with the stereo and took the seats out to check the amp. I don't think I disconnected the negative cable on the battery and now the windows won't do anything and the top won't go up or down. What did I screw up?

Seats


Check the fuses there should be one for the seats. If the fuses are good then the motor went bad. You can have it checked, serviced or replaced. Most likely a motor problem.
