Chevrolet P30 Window Motor
Dealing with Your Chevrolet P30 Window Motor
It can be pretty frustrating to deal with a stuck window. You'll find it even more annoying if you're dealing with a power window since you don't have a crank that you can easily tinker with. Possible problems that result in power window issues would be a blown fuse, a faulty switch, or a worn-out window motor. In any case, you'll need to open your vehicle's door panel so you can get your window running again. Troubleshoot your Chevrolet P30 window motor with ease using our handy guide below.
Windows would not move at all
If all of your windows have suddenly stopped working, then the first part that you'll want to check would be the fuse for your power windows. A blown fuse will affect all of your windows, so simply open your vehicle's fuse box and replace the burnt fuse. Changing a small fuse is definitely easier and cheaper compared to replacing an entire window motor.
Only one window won't work
If a window on one side of your vehicle has stopped working, then you're looking at either a faulty switch or a broken window motor. You'll want to check the switch first as it's easier to access than the window motor. Simply remove the switch from its block and test it with a multimeter. You may also test it by plugging it on the opposite side of your vehicle that has a working window. If the switch is fine, then you might have to simply clean the contacts on the switch as it may be interfering with the flow of current. If this doesn't solve your problem, then you'll have to open your door panel and take a look at your window motor instead.
Slow moving windows
If your car's window appears to be moving up or down a bit slower than usual, then your window motor might be wearing out. You'll have to open your vehicle's door panel in order to test the window motor using a multimeter or test light. If you've done all of the steps above to rule out other problems, then checking the window motor itself would be your last step.
