How to keep from getting ripped off on your power window repair

First and foremost, we don’t want to bash anyone trying to make an honest living repairing automobile power windows. The problem we have, is with the guys running around claiming to be power window repair specialists that have zero to little experience in repairing power windows and are not in the business of being honest and upfront about their services.

Check References and Do Your Own Research
The best advice we can give you is to check references in multiple locations before you give anyone your money! With websites such as Yelp, BBB, Angie’s List, and Facebook, customers of all ages and walks of life are represented. If a company does what they say they do, the majority of what customers say about them will be positive. You want to be sure that you are working with a real business and not just some guy with a hammer and a truck.

Ask Questions
How many repairs have they completed in the last year? Are their technicians experienced? Do they carry liability insurance? If they aren’t reputable, they will not be prepared to answer your questions and may hang up on you. Take charge of your repair experience and you won’t get ripped off on your power window repair.

Be Informed
There are only 3 main parts to an automobile power window system; the power window switch, the power window lift motor and the power window regulator. Become familiar with the type of window regulator that is in your vehicle and what type of power window problems other owners are experiencing with their cars. The more you know, the more you will save!

How to diagnose a power window motor or window switch problem

Diagnosing a power window motor or window switch problem doesn’t have to be rocket science. If you understand the basic principles of how they work, and you know what particular style window regulator is in your automobile door, you can figure it out quickly.

power window motorIf your glass didn’t do the famous “pop & drop” and you don’t hear cracking, grinding or funky noises coming from the inside door panel, your power window regulator may be just fine. Move onto testing the power window motor or window switch.

You don’t always need to remove the panel to determine what is wrong with your power window motor or power window switch. Many times, a fluctuation in the strength of your power to your dorm or headlights, caused by the demand of current can tell you whether or not the motor is getting any juice, better known as electricity.

Testing at night with your engine off, but ignition and headlights on will be your best option. Depress the power window switch and if you see a slight dimming of your headlights or your dome or dash lights, you are getting an electrical connection to the switch and it is sending that power to the motor. If this happens and you aren’t hearing any noise, you can be relatively sure that it’s the power window lift motor that is to blame. Sometimes you hear a click-click-click-click when the motor is failing.

If the power window switch button feels spongy, loose or at all different from the other window switch buttons, you likely are in need of a window switch repair or replacement.
