3 Reasons Power Windows May Stop Working, Honolulu, Hawaii

We rely on our vehicles' power windows to open and close with ease. Sometimes, however, power windows encounter issues that prevent them from operating properly. The power window repair specialists at Roy's Auto Glass Shop have been serving the Honolulu, Hawaii, area since 1965; below, they discuss three reasons power windows might stop functioning.

Three Reasons Power Windows May Stop Working

1. Overheating

Every power window in your car is driven by a small motor located inside the door. With repeated use, it's not unusual for this motor to overheat, and overheating causes the window to stop moving up and down at your command. If the window still doesn't work after allowing the motor some time to cool off, a power window repair professional can have a closer look and double check the wiring of the unit.

2. Cable Issues

For as advanced as our modern technology is, much of it is based on age-old discoveries and principles. A power window is a perfect example: the movement of the window is raised and lowered by a good, old-fashioned pulley (albeit an automated one). The window regulator and the cable on the pulley can separate, and the cable may come off track or break. This is a common reason a power window may fail.

3. Button Problems

The button serves as the master switch for the window unit, and if it is unable to trigger the window into action, the whole process fails. Your local power window repair service can help diagnose this problem and give you options for a quick remedy.
