power windows seem week

power windows seem week

Postby twitchit72 [OP] » October 11th 2010, 4:16pm

I have a 98 safari and the driver side window rolls up slow. some times it just stops going up. You have to let go of the button and wait a few seconds then it will roll up a little more and stop. Its almost as if it is over powered buy resistance and has to cool (the motor). any ideas? yes the track and linkage are clean and there is no binding. it seems to happen in High humidity or a hot day.

the motor is likely , ,you will need to test it , make sure you have good clean ground connections , if the window motor is the only electrical problem, the motor is likely to have worn out , drivers side window gets used more than passenger

Which brand to buy? There are some cheap buys on eBay. but they likely come from China :rofl: :rofl:
And we don`t want that crap. quality comes here first.

So which brand to buy? :feedback:

i replace these all the time for ppl in our shop and we just use the ones they keep in stock at any parts store locally

work fine always never once had a return or issue

they get weak due to age and wear and become slow and next to no power

just is what happens

replace them

i have a pair of less than year old replacement ones i snagged out of the 92 astro recently i junked

they interchange most all cars trucks vans 80s and 90s years if is the old style with metal regulators with arms and rollers

not cable driven

i always save motors if they work good, from vehicles im junking

good luck
1992 Astro EXT parting out! many new parts! new regulators, heater core, ECM, etc. text me 217 828 0964 im looking for a '70s-older chevy gmc 1 ton work truck. have: '93 Lumina APV, '93 Eagle Vision, '98 G. Cherokee(for sale), '54 F100
