Window and Alarm Problem

Recommended Posts

My drivers side door window is working erratically. The window will usually not go down the 1/2 inch when opening and closing. Sometimes it will when i open it and then immediatly go back up; so when you close it the window hits the top and does not seal. Also, the door lock indicator is red and i get the alarm horn beep whenever i deactivate.

Any help would be appreciated so i can get this fixed.

note: it appears like the door is making a noise like it is trying to lock/unlock and can't. sometimes i can hold down the door lock switch and the light will go off. when i open the drivers door the window will go down the 1/2 inch but will immediately then go back to full up and the door lock switch will then go to red. the pass. door is working correctly.

Junninc probably has it right, but I always give the any wire connections a good jiggle before I replace anything. Pull them apart and plug them back together a few times. Use some contact cleaner if you have it.

If you live near the ocean or it rains a lot connectiors can be a particular problem in any car
