Window Regulator Parts and Repair Services
Power windows were originally introduced in 1940, and have since become a common feature on a vast majority of modern cars, trucks, and SUVs. Without electricity, the window cannot be raised or lowered, meaning that power windows are typically inoperable once the vehicle is turned off. There are a number of electrical and mechanical systems working together to make operating a power window nearly effortless, and any of these components can fail. If you think you need window regulator repair in Knoxville and Oak Ridge, TN, call People’s Choice Auto Repair at (865) 272-3379.
Unlike older window systems that required vehicle occupants to turn a crank manually to raise or lower the vehicle’s windows, power windows are operated via the simple push of a button or the flip of a switch. One downside to power windows, however, is their reliance on electrical power. Some power windows have a time delay feature, however, which allows drivers and passengers to continue operating the windows even after the engine stops for a short amount of time. Because power windows are easy to engage, there are safety lock features on most vehicles equipped with power windows which drivers can use to prohibit other passengers, such as children, from opening or closing the windows accidentally.
Window Regulator Repair
Whether your vehicle is equipped with manual windows or power windows, the window regulator will play a role. The window regulator allows the driver or passengers to raise and lower a side window at will and can be found inside the door panel. In manual windows, the hand crank powers the window regulator, while the switch or button used in power window systems operates the window regulator’s motor.
