My 2000 Intrepid ES has a recurrent noise involving the driver's window. After the windows poers closed, the motor seems to keep going for a fraction of a second and the window mechanism grinds a bit. The dealer rplaced some window regulator last year which fixed the problem. But now it's back. The window opens and closes fine otherwise.

Also, anybody noticed that the front passenger power window is noticeably slower than the other windows. The dealer said this was normal - it's on a secondary power circuit (?).

I think my front passenger window is slower too... but I don't think it is by much. Of course, I haven't driven my car in about 6 weeks so I can't really remember.

Mine also has what it seems like is a "grunt" at full close. Reading posts on the Chrysler newsgroup seems to indicate that window motors are a minor problem, esp. with the 300M.
My feeling is as long as it works, don't fix it.
As to the passenger window, I haven't made any mental note as to it being overly slow...again one of those "works...don't fix" for me.

When it gets cold outside, my stupid drivers window squeels a little bit when going up and down.

Mine squeals too... mostly when it's cold outside but sometimes even when it's hot.

hello. just got a 99 intrepid two years ago and ive been having a few window issues. front drivers side window was the third window to go. everyone with an intrepid i talked to had problems with passenger side. the front drivers side had been funny and was doing what you all described. it had trouble going down and then one day it didnt. the motor makes a sound when i push the button. getting it fixed soon though. still under warranty. dont mean to scare anyone but thats what happened to my window, thought id give you the heads up. :)

I was wondering if anybody was having problems with their door locks making a weird noise when they lock and unlock, its only the rear passenger if it is bad does anybody have an idea of how much it will cost to repair...

on my '97 trep, i had probelms with the passenger window going downn very slowly, but come up fast, dealer said it needed to be lubed, charged me 40 bucks and sent me on my way. It didn't help. I also had bad probelms with the power door locks, sometimes they just made a whirring noise and didnt lock some doors, other times they were ok. whenever i took it too the dealer, they were fine, so i left it, and traded the car in. :D

don't wait till it stops working! every car ever in my family that had a slow window was because there was no grease and/or rust was building up on the tracks in the door. if your car is under warrenty, get it fixed, if not, grease up the tracks and gears in the door. otherwise you might end up with broken gear teeth and a burnt out motor... none of which is cheap.

hi. all my window issues were problems with the motor. my advice is fix everything while you have the warranty. even if its still working, but going slow and stuff. they will fix it with no arguments. this way if it breaks again, they have to replace it for free if warranty is up. :D

My rear passenger side window use to be stuck. I took it in while under warrenty and they "fixed" it... supposedly greased it but the next day it did it again. This time I decided to fix it myself. I opened up the door panel and unscrewed the motor assembly. When I took out the last screw the motor jumped off... apparently the gearing was jammed so when I put it back on it worked fine. It tried to get stuck a couple times after that over the course of a few weeks but when it wouldn't go down, I just pressed up on the button and then down to release the pressure on the gearing and that worked. Ever since the couple times it tried to get stuck, it hasn't had any problems at all. That was about 7 months ago. I really think that the gear mechanisms just are matched up too well.

There's definitely something wrong with the 2nd gen Intrepid windows........ My job has had 4 99 intrepids go in for warranty work. And they keep breaking ... they went right back to the dealership to get fixed.... But something kept going wrong with these windows, and Would you believe that the dealership refused to fix another broken window on my job Intrepids. They wanted to replace the door. SO we just sold them and bought 2000 Intrepids... I Think were going to be getting a Recall letter in the mail sometime soon!!!!!!!! B/C i have a 2001 and I'm getting signs of trouble coming soon from my two front windows...... :confused:

According to my brother (Chrysler tech) the #1 reason a 2nd Gen car comes in for service is for broken/faulty power windows...

There's defintely something wrong with them. He told me it's not a matter of if your windows are going to stop working...it's when. He said the rear's are more prone to getting screwed up then the fronts.

I had to get the passenger rear window motor replaced twice, it just quit working. After they put in a newer one it is slower then all the other windows. And for those saying the drivers side is faster, it is.. some sort of convience thing I guess, just the the auto part of it.

If any of your windows suddenly do not go down, dont worry, it may not be broken...(experience info)..Those of you who live in hotter, and more humid climates(like me in Houston), mayhave trouble with the windows not going down. their not broken, but just stuck. it usually only happens when their kept up for a few weeks at time. The best way to fix this is to just take your fist, and smack it. Its happened twice, and hitting the inside door panel a couple times has always got it working. Hope this helps someone.
