Alfa gtv 6 windows stuck in a locked position.


I am having some issues with my beloved car. I had a problem with the passenger window getting stuck, this problem has now spread to my drivers window now neither of them will open.

The fuses seem to be in tact however, when i activate the passenger window it makes a sound of it trying to engage. This noise persisted even when the key was out the ignition and the car was off, this resulted in my battery going dead.

After removing the door panels i noticed that the motor for the window ( which is extremely hard to get to) overheats badly once the button for that window is pushed and doesn't stop until all wires to it are disconnected.

has anyone got any ideas or solutions on how i may fix this problem, as i say it has now spread to my drivers window also.

Sound like a relay may be sticking?

Sounds likely that the window regulator motors have failed, what year is the car? does it have the autodrop window function?
You could wire up a direct supply to the motors in order to test them.
