    When it does work, does it go up slowly?

    Re: cadi window motors

    Did you ever find out what to do beside kicking the door panel? Is that how to open it? I can't figure it out. I want to get the thing open but don't know how to start. Anyone know how to get into the works of an older ('86) Caddie DeVille electric window?

    Usually this is the first sign of a dying motor. You may want to replace it before it sticks at a really bad time.

    Had an 81 Eldo that behaved the same way, kick the door panel near the hinge, to make it work. It was frustrating because i would pull the door panel off, and the window would start working, put the panel back, quit working. It was a bad ground, what worked for me: loosen and re-tighten the regulator mounts, one at a time. Also reminded on another thread, is that the power to the passenger doors also goes though the driver door. A bad switch in either place, will fail to supply power.
