hi guys my problem is like this, my front driver window sometimes opens sometimes doesnt and sometimes stops in middle. what happens next when i press the botton to open or close it i get a clicking noise coming from the front electronic module (i think). does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem can be and how it can be fixed? thanx julius

You need to check power and ground at the motor. They are common for going bad. They have an internal thermal breaker that cuts out.

Check the battery terminals under the hood. Be sure they are clean and making good connections.

If that does not work, do a voltage drop test with a multimeter from the battery + to power going to the motor and from battery - to the ground at the motor. And I mean from the battery POST, not the terminal on the battery post. Someone will need to hold a test lead to the battery post.

For all about this test, search google.com for the words...
