Sometimes you can flip the switch up and down very rapidly and it will clean the contacts. May have gotten wet at some time. Ive used this trick several times, especially GM products. Use your thumb and move it very quickly and with a little force.

Manually oped door lock on2004 deville from open window now won't srart with out waiting a couple minutes

You triggered the security system on this model, which is notoriously sensitive, and the security shut down the ignition. Don't push your luck, use the key fob to unlock or you may wind up with a locked down and inoperable Cadillac.

2004 deville passenger front and rear power windows

hello there:
you may have to disassemble the door panel and check to see if the cable going to the actuator has come off if the cable is there and mounting looks OK you may need to replace the actuator its a simple procedure to do and it's just as expensive to replace the motor and actuator together at the same time the reason for this is to resolve future problems.... hope this helps thanks

Driver window went down and did not return up again. Devilie 2004

The window motor could have a bad relay on it. Sometimes they heat up and this casues the relay to trip until it cools back down. You might have something blocking the window regulator as well. Take the door panel off and make sure nothing is binding.

Drivers window wont go down 1997 cadillac deville

I, myself own a 1993 Cadillac Sedan Deville. It has over 150K miles on the odometer and has over time had a myriad of parts replaced, mostly by me. One day, for reasons unknown, the window in the driver's side door decided not to work. Like you, all other windows remained fully operable in both directions. While the switches can fail they are, as a rule, quite reliable for long periods of time. When trying, for some time, to get the window to operate, without success, I thought, let me think about this. Upon reflection, I decided that although switch failure is possible the odds of both sets of contacts, raise and lower, failing simultaneously are small.
The next possibility is that the window regulator which is what the manufacturer calls the mechanism, has developed a motor problem. These are DC motors and I don't know whether they have a wound field ar a permanent magnet field. Assuming a wound field it is possible that the last time the window moved under power the motor stopped with a brush either stuck or in contact with a "dead spot" on the commutator. Assuming the latter and with the window fully up I opened the door, pressed the switch to lower the window and while holding the switch in the down position I simultaneously slammed the door. Voila!!! The window went down and became fully operable once more. It has been operating as designed ever since; about 8 months now. Give it a try. Window regulator assemblies are dear and the motor is NOT available as a separate part. Good Luck!!

Power windows stop working one by one. The driver window was the latest to go. There was this loud "pack" sound then it would go up. It stayed where it was. It stays up with a tape on the bottom section of...

sounds like faulty or worn window regulators in the doors,they hold the glass in position when it moves up and down,probably need replacing,at the very least adjusting

2004 Cadillac Deville front drivers side window off track

There is always some way to get to the screws. So if they are not obvious you need to look for circles that can pop off with a screw driver or hidden places like under the handle or in the side pocket or even the outter edge when you open the door.
