#1 of 20 94 window motor issue.
Jul 23, 2009 (6:05 pm)
Every so often my windows stop working,including the moon roof in the 94 SIG SERIES.Anybody have a clue what this could be??I just got the car a week ago.

The Seller of your 94 may have put a "minimal" battery in to save $ & get it out the door.
When my 94 Sig had your problem, it was solved by installing a fresh and more powerful battery. If we don't drive it frequently, I put a charger on it every two weeks.
If you do your own battery installation, remember to use a terminal cleaner on the posts and cables & install an anti corrosive lube too.

Thanks,but I doubt it's the battery.Everything works,car starts etc.It's just the windows and moon roof that go out.Battery is big and looks in good condition in the car.

I have the same porblem with my front windows. Thee drivers door stopped working, motor makes noise, but will not roll up, and other doors are slow. I wish I knew what caused this too

Your problem might just be the actual power window motor itself.They do get real slow when they get old.The window might be off the track as well which could be what you're hearing.I'd pull the door panel and look at that track.Mine is a little different.It just stops altogether,then after a few minutes of driving it starts to work again.

Your window switch might be the problem too.

so the switch itself may be bad. the motor seemed to work, but the window did not go up or down.

I just replaced my driver side window switch for the 3rd time.It seems to work ok so far.The window is a little slow in spots though.

Let me know if you find out anything about it not working.Mine is still acting up even with a different switch.
