89 Burban Slow Power Windows

89 burban, 1/2t, 4x4-

My Power windows are running very slowly. When I raise or lower the windows from the dirvers control, they run very slow. When I raise/lower the window from that specific door, it runs a little faster. Makes me think wiring but I dont know. Anyone else had this problem and fixed it? I am trying to avoid 2-300 in new window sh!t.

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

I am trying to figure out why I am the only one who has ever had this problem. Of the 22 people who viewed this thread, no one can reply? Is it because I am new on this board?

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

most likely the motor is shot. it is rare for the wiring to go bad.

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

Can't comment on the wiring, but I just replaced the motor in the drivers side door on my '86 K10, and it made a huge difference. The window worked before I put new weather stripping in, but it was slow. Once I put the new weatherstrip in, it would only go about half way up. I pulled out the old motor and regulator, replaced the motor, and cleaned and greased the rails, and now it works great.

I'm goign to redo the passenger side as well, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

my brother has a 89 k-jimmy and he has the exact same problem and i found out that if you really want to get rid of the problem and never deal with it again i would go to the junk yard and get doors from a truck cab with manuel windows and manuel locks. you'll just have to use some elbow grease to roll them down [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

Manual windows are nice until I'm driving alone and want to put down the back ones. As long as my windows will go up and down under power, I'm not going to mess with the motors.

Re: 89 Burban Slow Power Windows

I guess thats the best way to think about it. Usually I fix squeaks and rattles and other various noises by turning the radio up. I only really mess with it once it starts vibrating.
