Asked by Jul 29, 2015 at 10:29 AM about the 1999 Acura RL 3.5 FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The window went down with the car off. Switch does not bring it up, makes motor sound,
Recently my car battery went dead, I replaced battery a few hours later new battery was
dead again. I unplugged the battery next day engine went on quickly. Checked fuses they
are good.

1 Answer


Either the window motor is bad or the window regulator will not know until the door panel is removed and both are checked.
