How to determine if a window motor for a Saturn is bad?

I think my motor is bad in my Saturn.


Answer by  Allstar (2071)

Remove the motor from the door and put 12 volts across the leads. If it turns, the motor is fine; if it doesn't, it's broken.


Answer by  JCW (233)

You will have to remove the door panel and inspect connections and switches first. After that, while looking at the motor, hit the switches. If the motor clicks or gets warm the motor is bad. If nothing happens, check the power supply to the motor and the switch assembly using the other doors motor if possible.

Take off door panel and hook switches back up. find wires going to motor. Take a multimeter/voltmeter and test the wires when flipping the switch. Ifno powercould beswitch orfuse

If your window is rolling up slowly or not at all it's safe to assume the motor has gone out, or at the very least there is a bad connection.

One way to check is to connect the pins on the motor connector to a 9 volt battery or the car's battery and see if it move or not.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

Well remove the door panel to gain access to the motor. Unhook the connector and attach a 9volt battery to the terminals and see if it moves. Switch terminal to see if it will go back the other way. If it moves then you have a switch or fuse issue.
