Mine was doing that, soaked her with wd-40 and now she works good, just be careful about getting it on the glass and seals or it will smear the window every time you go up and down. Greasing the slides may be better but it was a pain to get to on mine even with the door panel off.

Same Problem

I have a '00 nodel with the same problem... I actually pulled the door panel and replaced the window motor, greased the regulator and still no change. I did notice that the window motor got extremely hot when I tried to roll the window back up, to the point of kicking the thermal overload in the motor. At this point I am not sure if there is a problem with the regulator and window tracks or if it's a wiring problem... Please help!!!! I can't stand to ride around with un-tinted windows much longer!!! LOL!

How would I go about checking the readings on the wiring? How many other people are having this problem?

I have a 99 and had the same problem with the front passenger door. Just did the WD-40 trick today to the tracks the window slides in sinsce I had it apart to do the aluminum foil fix to the door lock actuator. Both are working fine now. Don't know how long it will last. WD-40 tends to dry out quickly.
