Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
My driver's side power window switch doesn't work. All the other window switches work fine.The switch was not acting up at all, it worked great in the morning and that night when I was going home I went to use the switch and nothing happened. If I hold down the switch I can hear a clicking sound in the switch,Can I change just the driver's switch or is it one complete unit? Driver's side window will not work. All other windows work. I changed the switch but the problem persisted with the new switch.
The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.

The cable is probably is bound up in the motor..this happens alot.put your ear down by the window motor and listen to see if motor trying to turn.

I had the same problem...it was the window gear that got stuck when the window was all the way up. (that's the clicking) I took my panel off and banged on the inside of the door with a rubber mallet. The window works again. Since then I make sure when I role the window all the way up to stop that I just barely tap the down button to release the pressure on the gear inside. When your using the hammer...hold the switch in the down mode...ignition on of course.

You may have a combination problem. Your system uses electrical/vacumn. The ducts are operated by vacumn being directed to different hoses by the electrical switch. If you can get to one of the hose with the engine running, pull one off of its ports and check for vacumn.
