Alright, I have experienced the pain of Xterra windows in the past but this a new one for me. I went to put my window down at work on friday and when I hit the auto down switch it only went 3/4 of the way down. No worries it's 0500 and I thought maybe I just hit the button, until it happened again when I went to put my window down again. When I went to put my window up I got nothing. No motor noise at all. I replaced the swicth because I had a similar problem on my 00 Xterra, but that did not fix it. All of the other windows work, I was able to slide the glass up by hand so I dont think it's off the tracks. Do the windows have independant fuses? I'm trying to rule out everything before I repalce the motor. Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me. You always seem to have the answers
I live in NOLA now so it is likely that rain got on the switch. I replaced the switch yesterday. guess my next step is see if the motor is getting power. I will have to wait untill i get to work to do that
The switch is a 5 position switch I beleive, as in it has an auto up and an auto down.
To me, it sounds like the regulator, but try a reset before you spring for a new one.
Here is how you reset it:
1. Manually (do not go all the way down to auto), go all the way down.
2. Go all the way UP manually (NOT AUTO!) and hold the switch the whole time. When it is in the fully up position hold the switch for another 4 seconds (count slow). Do not let go of the switch. After 4 seconds, try to go down, and see what happens.

looks like I'll be springing for the new regulator and motor. I went by NAPA after work and they said it's a dealer part, I think I can order one from Advanced. If anyone has a good place let me know. Thanks for everyones help.
I can't get the window to move at all unless I slide it down with my hands, and the motor will not make any noise. Do you think it will be worthwhile to have someone else manipulate the switch while I muscle the window down and back up? I will try just about anything before I drop money on a new motor.
