    The same thing happened to my 2000 saturn L series, it must be a defect in the car. It its a standard you can pop up the leather around the shifter and pop out the switch; it just unplugs. Brand new switches are around $400, i found one on ebay for 70 though and im sure you can find one at a junkyard somewhere. I also tried cleaning mine with electrical cleaner and it helped for a little while, then my window was stuck down in the middle of a snowstorm. I wouldnt risk it!

I have an '01' L200. I'll bet the problem is in the switch. I've been through 2 of them. The electrical contacts wear out especially on the drivers side. That's the one that gets the most use right? [no left really]. Pop out the old switch next to the shift lever. Gently pry up the front of the switch, then the rear. It will come out easy enough. The whole thing is one assembly that simply unplugs. It's not the same as the passenger side switch because of the window lock switch, the wiring harness is different, so they are not interchangeable. See if your local junkyard can fix you up with a replacement. Way cheaper than a dealer!

It could be several things, from a bad switch, bad electrical connection at the switch or on the window motor inside the door, or even a bad motor.

Front passenger-side window stuck in down position.Is it most likely a motor,track,or electric fuse problem?


oscar, just in case it is the regulator, buy a new one at a parts store or on ebay. then take the car to an auto glass store and have them put it in for you. they have the tools, the experience, and the fasteners needed. if it turns out it was only a fastener, then you have already replaced the regulator which will go in a year or two anyway and you will know just how to do this when your driver side fails.
I have had 5 saturns, the window regulators rarely make it to 8, the wiper motors and automatic transmissions are nothing to write home about either.

How do I lift my power window if the switch is not working? The window will go down but unable to make it come back up. This is a 2000 Saturn LS. It is is only a problem on the driver side window.


get a new power window regulator on ebay or at a parts store and have a glass shop install it for you. it is an electric motor and like all others, it will wear out with use and age. that is why the driver's window is almost always first to fail.

2000 saturn power windows,driver window does not


you would first have to make sure it is switch.Motors and regulators go out often. Does the drivers door switch operate passenger side ok? Can you hear any noise when switch is is up or down position?You would want to make sure all of this first. Door panel controls are easy to replace but you really want to remove panel and make sure you have good motor and window regulator.

How do I take off the driver side door panel off of a 2000 saturn


Depends on the problem. If it's electronic and the window won't work, let the garage handle it. Make sure the handle is put back on securely. I had to take mine back for them to put it on right.
