How often should I replace an electric window motor?
Over time, due to prolonged use a motor can wear in which case using the windows might be problematic with slow or erratic window movement. Sometimes the electric window motor can fail completely. In many cases though, it might be that the system has blown a fuse. On other occasions it might be that the electric window mechanisms have seized.
An electric window motor failure is not necessarily easy to identify. When the windows do not move and there is no buzz coming from the motor inside the door, it is clear there is an issue with the electrics of the window. It might be that the window switch has failed or that there is a loose or corroded connector. At an inspection a mechanic will establish, step by step, what the fault in the electrical system is before replacing any parts.
How can I extend the lifetime of my electric window motor?
The more strain you put on the window motor, the quicker it will wear out. By keeping the windows free of grit and waiting until ice has melted (or removing it) before operating the window will reduce unwanted resistance.
