How do i repair the wiring to the other windows in my 2001 Buick Lesabre Custom? Only my driverside window and power lock works


FIRST MAKE SURE YOU DID NOT LOCK THE WINDOW, BY RELEASING THE BUTTON, THEN REMOVE DOOR PANEL ON PASSENGER SIDE , UNPLUG WINDOW MOTOR, AND TEST FOR POWER AND GROUND AS SOME ONE PUTS THE WINDOW DOWN FROM BOTH SWITCHES, IF POWER AND GROUND IS THERE REPLACE MOTOR, IF NO POWER THERE CHECK SWITCH, POSIBLE BAD SWITCH, BUT IF YOU SUSPECT WIRING , CHECK THE DOOR JUMB ON DRIVERS SIDE, INSIDE THE RUBBER BOOT MAY BE ONE OR MORE BROKEN WIRES , REPAIR THEM.

Look closely for any "lift up" type flap or cover on the door handle covering the screw hole as unless the door handle is not removed, the door panel will not come off. Make sure you also have removed all the push clips used to hold the door panel.

Left side drivers auto window will not rolldown


  • Remove the door panel's Phillips screws from the arm rest and the screw in the door handle. Remove the plastic cover concealing the mounting surface for the outside mirror. Remove the window switch by prying it forward and up with very little pressure. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove any screws around the circumference of the door panel if any.
  • Grab the door panel at the bottom and lift it up to release the hooks on the lower part of the door. Tip the bottom of the door panel outward a little and push up to release the top of the door panel where it is hooked on the top ledge. Disconnect all electrical connectors on the door panel. Remove the panel.
  • Reach inside the access hole to remove the electrical connector to the window motor. Remove the bolts holding the motor to the door. Remove the screws holding the window motor to the regulator barrel.
  • Install the new motor into the barrel of the regulator. If it does not want to line up with the splines, lower the window slowly and the gear will turn and the motor will line up. Install the screws holding the motor to the regulator. Bolt the motor to the door with the bolts. Install all components in reverse order of removal.

    NEED TO REMOVE DRIVERS DOOR PANEL ON A 2006 NISSAN 350Z


    I did this myself before:

    Removing the Door Panel

    The first thing to do is remove the tab in your door handle that covers the screw (using the flat head screw driver), which secures the handle and window/lock switches to the door panel. Using the Phillips head screw driver, remove the screw. Now, remove the door handle and locate the tabs securing the wire harness for the door locks & power windows. Using the flat head, push down on the tabs and pull the male end out of the wire harness with your other hand. You can now locate 2 of the 3 bolts/screws that secure the door panel to the door.Using the 10mm socket, 3′ extension, and the 1/4′ drive socket wrench – remove the bolts/screws. Located behind the interior door handle is a plastic covering with a hole cut in it, that goes around the rubber piece that is there to stop the handle.Use the flat head screw driver to remove that plastic piece. Behind that piece, you will find the 3rd and final bolt/screw that secures the door panel. Using the 10mm socket, 3′ extension, and 1/4′ drive socket wrench, remove the bolt/screw. At this point you can pull the door panel off by hand.There are only tabs holding it on now, and they all will pop off. Now on the inside of the panel, you will need to locate the backside of the interior door handle. Remove the cables that operate the door lock, and opening mechanism. No tools are required for this step. Now you have the metal door panel, which is secured by 11-12 bolts/screws around the boarder of the panel.Locate the wire harness for the window motor in the upper right corner of the metal door panel. Using the flat head screw driver, disconnect the wire harness.After removing the panel, you will need to push the rubber grommet through the panel – the wire is attached to it. There will also be two white tabs on the backside of the panel that secure the female end of the window motor wire harness to the panel. Using your fingers (or pliers) pinch them, to remove the harness.

    At this point, you can remove the 11 – 12 bolts/screws that are holding the panel to the door.The panel will not fully remove, but will come off a little bit. Now for the gold colored bolts/screws and nuts.Three of the bolts/screws are what secure the window motor to the panel.The other two bolts/screws, and the 2 nuts hold the brackets that hold the glass in place.there is one of these bolts/screws, and one of these nuts on each bracket (on each side). Using the 10mm socket, remove all of the bolts/screws.The Nuts are a 12mm socket; remove them as well. The panel should now come off, and the motor & guts of the door, will be revealed.
