Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for your question.
When you were trying to program the window did you have the door open or closed?
i followed the instructions that I fond all over the web
thereafter, I tried to test the window. It seemed to go far slower than usual
tested it with the door closed, and the same problem occurred (reached the top, automatically went partially down)
then i put it all the way down, and it got stuck
The steps you gave me work on a Sedan
When you have a coupe, your window drops a little when you open the door
So you need to program the window with the door closed
ok im in the car, door closed
When you are programming the window
Raise it to the top
it's stuck down
both sides are
Open and close the door
Start the car and turn it off
and open and close the door
Then see if the windows go up
seems my battery is dead
car wont start
That could be why they won't go up
interior lights are on but dim. security light is flashing
remote lock works
Lets jump start the car and get it running
Take your time.. I am online till 10 or 11 pm EST
alright car is on, windows work, and i feel dumb
so how do i reset the window
Close the door put the window all the way up to start
or should i let it charge for a few
If the car is running you should be fine
ok window is up
Now when programming the windows. Do not use the Auto Down or Auto Up feature..
So now that the window is up
Press and hold the reset button on the window motor
and lower it all the way.. NO Auto Down
Then release the button
Then Raise the window all the way up-- NO Auto up
little nipple thing under the sticker, located directly below the screw hole for the bottom of the door handle, coorect?
Then release the window switch after it gets all the way up
and wait 5 seconds then test operation
It's a little nipple type button that
is there any action to it? the button (more so its base) can move left to right, and there is no click or detectable engagement when i depress the nipple.
just want to ensure that im actually pushing it and its not broken or jammed or something
If you find that that button has play to the right or left, then you need a window motor
The button should press in.
definitely moves back and forth
Then you need a window motor I am afraid
The CPU for programming the window is part of the window motor. When the side of the window motor has play like your saying, the motor will need to be replaced
will the reset work, or does this mean that the button is disconnected/nonfunctional?
yeah, the window motor program button is broken and that is why it can't be set. So that is why the window motor needs to be replaced
Do you have any more questions on this?
relatively handy, believe it or not....should be able to DIY the window motor?
Yeah.. The hardest part of the whole job
Is removing the window and adjusting it
Adjusting the glass I mean
This is what I do
One bolt comes out, and one you just loosen
Then you lift the window out of the door and lay it in a safe spot
Once you remove the regulator panel and replace the motor
When you put the glass back it, it will need to be adjusted
But just get the window in place first and program it
Take a dollar bill
lay it on the top of the glass and close the door on it
It should have a slight drag to the dollar bill
You want to do that around the window
If it slides out freely
Then you need to loosen the window and adjust till you get the dollar bill drag
yup got it
do you have any more questions on this?
one more thing - for extra credit and peace of mind - took passenger seat out to get it cleaned, knew the airbag indicator light would start flashing, kept flashing when i reconnected, but did the on/off reset and it went off. good to go or do i need to get my airbags checked out? dont want to waste money but also dont want my passengers dying
You should be fine
If the light is out
roger that, thanks Jay
If the light remained on, then you may want to have it check
But your good
going to go find a motor now
Don't forget to charge the battery also..
big price range on these things
$148 too cheap? have a recommended outlet for purchase?
Yeah.. be careful
Before you go buying one..
Price it at the dealer first
It's always a good starting point
cause you never know, it maybe cheaper than you think also
can use a z motor?
or only g
you should be able to use a Z motor
What I would do to be sure
Is call a Infiniti dealer
and get a price and part number on it
Then call a Nissan dealer and ask them to check a part number and give them the part number you got from Infiniti
and get a price from them also
Nissan should be cheaper and it's the same part also
so recommend ultimately buying from the dealership, or then pricing online and not going with anything that has too deep a discount
Price out the dealer..
Then enter the part number here
and check price here
This is a Nissan dealer in Texas that sells Nissan parts with out the dealer Mark up
This is the best way to go actually
I don't trust after market motors
then i dont either
When it comes to electrical parts, I never trust after market
