my window won't go up!

Hi,

After a great 3 week's trek of vacationing, I now realized there can be consequences of taking pix in our tv on the road!..the passenger window will not go up when I flip the window button switch!..I think I may have opened and closed the window one too many times to take the pix!..so we've got a call into the shop that does electrical work to fix it..anyone ever had this happen to them?...my hubby says the next truck we get, it'll have windows that won't ever open for me

Paula, tell your hubby that's what the window lockout switch is for...

Good Mornng Terry and TB,

The Dodge truck does indeed have that lockout switch on his side!!!..but when I'm on a photo op mission, watch out!!!..he's on his way up to go dove hunting this morning, and with temps out here in 100+ having the a/c on just doesn't make it..like duh!..we even went over to home depot to look for some flexible piece of plastic to put over the window opening, but decided against it knowing he'd have to duct tape or glue it down secure enough to keep it from flapping or coming loose..so he'll endure a couple of more days with it!!!

Have you checked the position of the lock-out switch?

Like any electro-mechanical part... none of them last forever. I have never had a problem with them in any car or truck I've owned... except my '98 Astro van, and I had to have the motors on BOTH sides replaced on it... inside three months!

hi Roger,

Wow 3 months!..weve had the dodge since '99 new, so I guess it's showing its age!..I know I wore it out on our vacation after thinking about all the pix I was taking!..how much did it cost for the replacement?

I'm sorry to hear you had troubles! But glad you got it fixed.

Our 2002 Dakota did this on the driver's side about a month ago and it sounds like the passsenger side is about to go, too. It sounded like keys were rattling in the outside lock as I was driving and I put the window down to see what was going on. It went down about 1/3 of the way then I heard a "snap" and it quit working. I had to tape it up with duct tape (I put another piece ot tape on the sticky side where it went over the top of the door so I didn't have to clean duct tape residue off the paint) and got it to the dealer. It was the regulator, and cost about $385 total for the repair.

I am not opening the passenger side window until we save up a little money...

Susan

Hi Susan,

We went out on an errand today w/the brand new fix..you can sure hear the difference when you put up the passenger side window now..smooth and quiet!..Steve's driver's side is sounding louder than the passenger's side definitely!!..I hope his doesn't go too soon from here on out!!..it cost $414 (the labor was $166.40)..the part ($230)had to be ordered from Dodge..I wonder if we had ordered the part ourselves then took it over to the electric shop, would it have been any cheaper?..oh well..paula
