Reasons behind Toyota Pickup Window Motor Problems
You are stuck in traffic and have nothing else to do. You look over to your left and see that the hot gal driving the car next to you is looking at you. She opens her automatic window and smiles. You attempt to do the same but find out that your window would not move an inch. And then the traffic moves. Problems with your automatic window are often caused by a faulty window motor. But before you go cursing your window motor for making you lose the girl, it is best that you know what causes these problems and how you can solve them.
As another way to annoy you, your car window sometimes refuses to go up or down. This is annoying, why? Ask that when you find yourself with an open window while you drive on a dusty road or with a closed window during the summer's climax.
Frozen windows can be caused by a lot of things, among it is the window motor. Focusing on the window motor, it may be that voltage does not reach the motor. To diagnose this problem, we need to know what prevents the voltage from reaching your Toyota Pickup window motor.
The first thing to blame is the wiring connection in the window motor assembly. There is a chance that connections became too loose or have been torn; you can use a test light to see if the wires are still in working condition. The second thing to blame is the motor itself. Although recent window motors offered in the market and installed in cars are sturdier, they are still prone to wearing out and damage. You can check the status of the motor by detaching it from the assembly and applying voltage on it. The third and last thing to blame is the connection between the switch and the motor. There may be a cut or loose part in the wire, preventing the motor from receiving the command of the switch.
There is a possibility that your car's window would only slide one way. This can be caused by a lot of things such as the window regulator, the control buttons, as well as the window motor.
Stuck windows are usually caused by regulator problems, but there are still cases that it isn't the problematic part. If you suspect that the window motor is the one to blame, you would need to look at the three things mentioned above (the motor wirings, the connection to the switch, and the motor itself).
