Default Power Windows

The drivers window will not shut, I took out the control panel and cleaned it off but still nothing happens, is there a way to shut it manually? please help.

Had the same problem with my windows. Check to see that power is going to the switch. If memory serves me right, check where the silver colored pins on the switch plug into the wire. My switches weren't getting any power and I had to splice into hot wires from the other switches.
If you have power, try swapping out switches from the other windows.
If that doesn't work it's probably time to take apart the door.

Default Hi

Can I manually close the window? I tried everything you suggested, but nothing. How do I take the door panel off?
Thanks
Ma 9000

If you have power at the switches, and the switches are fine, it may be the motor. The door panel is held on by 2 screws on the handle, just pry out the tabs. 2 more screws on each end of the door pocket, again taking off a screw cover. 1 screw behind the light, and I think 1 or 2 behind the lever. The biggest thing to worry about is pulling the panel off without ruining the clips. There is going to be two electrical connections, one for the mirrors and one for the light, these are easy to detach. Lift up once all the clips and connections are taken care of and the panel should come off. Just test the connections at the motor to see if it's getting power.

Best of luck

Default power windows

hi think robzsaab has hit the nail.you may very likely need to replace the complete mechanism.the cable jumps the pulley wheels(nylon) then thats it.i've done it for front pass & drivers sides of my 1988(my 94 d/side as well). the mechanisms are the same up to the 98 so buy the latest s/hand you can get and take your time.if you haven't already get a shop manual-haynes is one brand- it'll be your bible, although the non genuine manuals,sadly, don't have all the fixes.

Also, forgot to mention. If you need the window closed NOW and have to wait for parts or the time to fix it, use a hose clamp.

Slide the window all the way up, and use a few clamps at the base, just don't tighten too much or you will bend the regulator.
