Check that the fuse or the relay for electriic windows is not gone, you may need to replace it.

    If it does not work at all check the fuse first (check fuse and relay in any case).

    If fuse is ok, test the wirings, from switch to fuse box, and from fuse box to motor.

    If there is no power from switch to fusebox, replace switch.

    If there is no power from switch to motor, check wirings and fuse, and eventually replace them.

    If there is power to motor, check that the glass is not stuck , byu removing door panel, if the motor is not working replace it.

SOURCE: rear power windows stop at

The windows have a safety system: if the effort required from the motors to move the windows is higher that normal, the motors are stopped to prevent them from frying and shorting the entire electrics system of the car.
The only 2 causes that could made the window too hard to move on just some occasions is dirty seals (when dry the dust caught in the seal acts just like a grease making the movement actually easier; when whet the mud acts almost like a glue dramatically increasing the effort needed) or rusted mechanisms
You need to clean the seals: lower the windows and clean them with a toothbrush and soapy water. If the dirt has been there too long it might have eaten the rubber or even damaged it all the way to the frame. In that case the seals will have to be replaced.
The mechanism will have to be replaced. For both of them the doors will have to be completely stripped, a job for a repair shop.

Window wont go up or down


Check fuse, try switch from other window as they do the same thing. You may need to remove the trim & power the window up manually to check motor works.

My left rear window won't roll down. When I go to roll it dow (via the little button thing) I can hear it clicking inside the door. Is there a way to take the frame off the inside of the door to get to...


there is a gear on the motor that goes bad it is plastic the teeth get stripped take the door panel off (screws and push tabs) when you get the screws out take a putty knife on the bottom edge and start popping the panel out then take it off, get to the motor drill the rivets out and replace put back together

I have a 2001 buick le sabre. The rear widow does


That is the problem....however the cable spun off the spool and you need to buy the power window assy. On line it was a good fair price (about $35-50) it has 3 studs that holds it to the inside door and 2 bolts at the window that secures the assy to the window. All work can be completed in 30 mins..
