How To Diagnose A Problem With Your Power Window

Before assuming that your car has a major problem, let’s take a few moments to diagnose your power window problem and see if we can shed some light on the situation.

First, verify that all other windows are in working order. If all four windows fail at the same time and you have checked your fuses, you could have an electrical break in the door harness that runs between the body of the car and your door. If only one is not working properly, and it’s in the rear, it could still be an electrical break, but it’s rare in most vehicles, and more often found in the rear of Cadillac Devilles.

In most modern cars, it’s usually the regulator that goes first, with a few exceptions. The regulator is generally a cable track pulley system that is made of cheap plastic parts. In hotter climates, these regulators fail quickly and fail often. Symptoms of this type of problem include the glass dropping into the door panel, crunching, grinding or other funky noises indicating that the motor is working, but the glass is not being raised.

Some older vehicles have what’s called a scissor action regulator in the door. These regulators are bulletproof for the most part, but they do fail from time to time. There are small teeth on the arm of the regulator that attaches to the window lift motor and those teeth are thin and can break away. Symptoms of this would generally include a slight drop of the window and inability to raise all the way to the top. You may hear a noise that sounds similar to a machine gun – de de de de. When this occurs, using the power window or helping the glass up, can put further stress on your power window motor, which can lessen the life of the motor and cause it to draw more power from your power window switch. Power window switches in modern cars are outrageously priced and are often “dealer only” parts.

If your power window problem is running slowly, it’s likely that it’s just the power window lift motor that is to blame. Symptoms include the window starting to come up at normal speed and then when it gets part way up, it slows down to turtle speed and you have to help it up to the top. Again, not recommended. In touching the glass, you are putting additional pressure on the power window regulator, which can break and cause you more money. Glass carriers on regulators can also break, which would cause the window to tilt forward or backward.

If you have a power window problem in a Mazda, Nissan, Infiniti, or older Chevy or Ford, it’s likely the motor that’s the problem, even if you hear funky noises or crunching sounds. The gears inside some of those motors are plastic and will break down over time. They can be rebuilt in some cases.

BMW Twisted Seat Problem?

Is your BMW seat moving one way, but not the other? Are you lop-sided, leaning in one direction, as your driving down the road? Is the vehicle stuck in the position of your wife or husband’s height? Your power seat isn’t just malfunctioning, it could be causing a safety hazard to you and the people you love! A BMW twisted seat is no joke and it can cost you a pretty penny if you don’t know the right people!

If you’ve called BMW or any other repair shop for that matter, you know that looking at an entire new seat and that’s going to set you back a pretty penny. It’s not uncommon for customers to tell us that they’ve been quoted upward of $1200 for a replacement seat. A used seat from a junk yard will cost about $450 and then it has to be stripped, the old seat torn apart and everything put back together again. You lose your car for 4 days and if you’re lucky, it will be repaired correctly. The key phrase here being “if you’re lucky”.

A twisted seat repair doesn’t take a brain surgeon, but you do have to know what you’re doing and have the proper tools available to you. Paul’s video comes with personal support, so it’s not uncommon for him to hear from someone on the East Coast or in another country. This BMW problem is world-wide. the one thing common about all these people is that they wished they were in Phoenix, so they could have us do the repair. What really stinks is when they call from Florida for a quote stoked about what we do and then realize we’re in Arizona. What a bummer! Lucky for them, Paul is great at explaining how to fix these things.
