Buick century 1998 power window passenger side will not work , nothing work mechinal , all other windows work


You most likely have a bad window lift motor or MORE LIKELY a broken window regulator. The door must be disassembled to replace either or both of these.
It could also be a bad window control switch or a broken wire in the door-jamb area. Please note that EITHER of the switches for the passenger window (the driver's control switch or the one on the passenger door) can cause BOTH of the switches to not work to move the passenger window. In this case, electrical diagnosis must be performed to locate the cause of the problem.

Wher is the power window relay for 1996 s-10 truck


Your problem is likely in the master switch on the driver side. Try getting a drivers door switch from the junkyard. I have a 96 Silhouette that I experienced the same problem with. After changing out the motor, and the passenger switch I finally traced it to the master switch. Power goes to the drivers door switch first and then over to the passenger door. It could actually be both switches. A bad relay would affect both windows not just the one side.

How to fix my drivers side power window in a 1996 Buick century wagon it started by being very sluggish going up but now does not respond at all. the fuse is good. I think the switch is OK because it won't...


Remove the door panel. You will see the motor, remove the thre star screws, then remove the motor. Remove the motor cap which is held on by one screw. you will see three plastic plugs, remove these and replace with new ones or ball barrings if defective. Pack with grease when reinstalling. Now if it is not the motor then you have a defective regulator. Start by removing the pens holding in the regulator using a hammer and a punch, then drill out the aluminum rivits using 1/4 inch drill. Replace these with 1/4 bolds and lock nuts. Punch out and remove the aluminum holding in the glass, replace these also with 1/4 bolts and lock nuts. If one is going bad then likely all of them will follow. Purchase the regulators and motors if defective on on line,much cheaper. It will take you about 4 hours to replace the first motor and window reglator.
