Heh, well "fixed" is an overstatement. I've been using this 'fix' for a couple of months now but next week I plan on taking this bad boy apart. Sigh, every single car I've owned I had to take apart a door (to swap speakers mostly).

In my case it's not the motor I'm pretty sure - so it can only be the regular (or maybe I'll get lucky and it's just a lose bolt / need a reset).. On G's regulator is the track - there is no rubber track on which the window rolls as I learned from the dealer..

Finally got around to fixing the darn window yesterday. It did end up being the motor.. Nissan's regulator design actually looks pretty reliable to me so I'd say if your window doesn't work ~90% it's your window motor. Got a refurbished one with 1 year warranty for $100 shipped. Installation is pretty straight forward and there are videos online if you need

One more comment. Premium BOSE sound my a$$! After I took off the door panel first thing I saw was the 'high quality' speaker from BOSE. OMG it must me worth all of $5. So those had to go. Replaced the speakers with Infinity Kappa's while I was doing the window motor..

If the issue is elsewhere here's what works 100% of the time for me (with it being stuck or down). Just hold the up/down button, depending on which way you're going for, and slam the door while still holding the button. Works every time, but I know I will need to take the door apart at some point and get it fixed. Just dunno if I need to replace rubber tracks or if this is a simple tie up & spray some lube on the tracks.. Comments?
this just happened to my driverside and i cant beleive this fking worked thanks man!

Thank you thank you thank you! I had to go to work in like an hour and my window was jammed down like everyone else's. This worked 100%. Every time I slammed my door holding the window button up, my window inched up. From there you can help it out by grabbing the window up and pushing up on the window button

Same problem here. Could you please tell me how did you hotwire the motor?

Thank you very much.

I know it's months later but you take the door card off, locate the window motor plug (has six wires) and use the two large wires - blue and green

Problem may lie in the motor or switches. BOTH go bad in our cars. Switches you can test easy by simply using driver side which sounds like you already did so the problem is defiantly in motor.

There is a way you can repair the motor (if it's repairable). Sometimes you can just clean it up and it works again (brush surface). Other time you actually have to replace the brushes. Or you can buy a good working used one from me.

Another fix that worked (and amazed) me was the Hard Reset. We used 2 People, I sat in my car while my buddy disconnected the positive and negative terminals on my battery, Touched them together for 10 seconds, and then hooked the battery back up. Ill be damned if the back passenger window that hadn't moved in a week rolled right the F up like it was brand new!

Since then, Ive got the child lock on, and a death threat to any potentiarlmpassenger who even goes Near the window switch. As for now, my driver window and sunroof work fine, so as long as I can hold off in replacing the "Master Switch" (Which Ive been told by multiple sources is the ultimate problem, but it doesn't come cheap), Im good to go!

I never saw/tried the slamming the door wth the window button held up trick, but I wouldn't be surprised if something like that worked too. Anyways, Being the middle of winter, I know how relieved I was to get that sucker up, so hopefully this post will help a fellow G driver in need

That worked for G37s, the back left window wouldn't go down but it does now. The only issue is it seems to be dragging against something. I think it may have scratched my tint.

FYI, the passenger window motor is the most notorious issue I've had with this G35. I've had to swap out the motor three (3) times! I've gotten pretty good at it.

Every time it was the motor in my case. No rubber parts had to be swapped.

I held down my unlock button on the keyfob and all of my windows (including the passenger window) rolled down just fine. However, infiniti decided NOT to include an auto-up mechanism like they did on the older cars . so to get the window back up I had to hotwire the motor. The motor itself works just fine.

After studying the wiring diagram I've found that the +/-12V used to roll up/down the window is sourced from the switch in the door itself. Each door switch has a microcontroller that decides when to roll the window up or down depending on input from the door switches and a serial interface (which is how the BCM is able to tell the windows to roll down when you hold down the unlock button). I believe the problem I'm having is with the passenger side switch itself. The 12V battery supply is present at the switch but never makes it to the motor. The switch is only $70 but I would like to try to swap one first before I drop the coin on the switch. Anyone in the Orlando area want to let me try a swap? maybe I should try to "test drive" a G37 from the dealer (Kidding).

I guess I'll just have to take a risk on the door switch. What's odd though is that as far as I can tell the same serial interface is used by the master control on the driver's door but that control can't roll the window up or down while the body control module CAN... Very strange.

XS to the MAX
Works.....Kinda

I tried this this and it works for me; however not a long term fix. I can get the window back up, but then if I put it down again it does the same thing, so I have to repeat the steps.

(you will loose radio presets, save seat etc memory as soon as you reconnect the battery)
