Question about 2006 GMC Envoy

1 Answer

Driver's Side Power window control panel on door doesn't work.

I have a 2006 GMC Envoy and a few days ago, the power window control panel intermittently stopped working. A few minutes would go by, then it would work again.

Last night, the control panel stopped working all together. I checked the fuse box but that's like reading Chinese. I pulled all the fuses I could, checked each one and they are all fine. I am a single mother who is struggling and I really don't want to have to pay if it's something simple. Can someone help me? THANK YOU!

    2005 envoy same problem

  • stephanie26 Mar 10, 2009

    It started with my door panel going crazy and having the driver's side window not working. Then the heated seat options started going on and off on its own. Next came my driver's side mirror moving while I was driving and not allowing me to control it at all.

    There is a constant clicking in the door hapening and the entire door pannel is going nuts. The truck now stalls while I am driving and locks itself up. I have to sit with flashers on for 5 minutes until it decides to start again.

    When I phoned the dealership, they said it could cost up to $200 to hook it up for a diagnostic...and they can't promise that they will find what is wrong. I may have to go for more than 1 diagnostic...all at my expense.

    Unsafe vehicle, 4 kids in the back and they say it could be anything and not their problem. Oh yeah...have I ever done anything to it? Trying to put it on me before they even look at it.

I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I took it to a mechanic who has the same vehicle and he said it was the switch in my driver side door panel. Not that big a deal, but a little costly and the switch has to be programmed by a dealer wich is BS. The mechanic put the switch on and it will work on all my other windows except my driver window. so good luck.

Power window, power locks ,and power mirrors don't work on my gmc envoy 2006 but the other controlers work in the vehical.

I assume you are talking about the controller on the driver's door. The Driver's Door Module is likely defective. For troubleshooting purposes, you can swap in the passenger side module to verify.

One day the power window would not roll down but the power locks on the same side work fine.It also will not roll down withe the button on the drivers side.. 2005 GMC Envoy

The power locks have absolutely nothing to do with the power windows - totally different circuits.

The FIRST thing to check is to make sure that the window lockout button on the driver's door control switch is not turned on. This will keep all of the windows from operating except the driver's window.

Other than that, there are several things that can cause a power window to not roll down. It can be a power window lift motor, a window regulator, the window switches, or any of the wiring in between. Also, you did not mention which window is not working. BOTH of the FRONT windows are equipped with Door Control Modules (DCM) which, in turn, are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). If it is the front window you are talking about, it will be necessary to scan your BCM for fault codes to determine the source of the problem. If it is one of the rear windows, this can be checked by regular electrical testing and a scanner should not be necessary.

2006 gmc envoy drivers door has no power to it , no dome light when you open door all other doors are ok

{: ) Try checking the DDM fuse 10 amps at the rear fuseblock. If you'll be able to access the connectors under the driver door switch, check for 12v power by probing on all the orange wires. Check also the black wires for good ground connections. If the windows can be operated on the driver's door switches, then the door lock actuator coud be faulty. But if most or all of the buttons on the driver door switches doesn't seem to function at all, despite 12v power and ground on the respective terminals, then it can be a malfunctioning driver door switch. A new driver door switch will also require programming.
If ever this is the case and you need to be sure, you can try swapping the driver door switch from another vehicle you know of with a similar configuration as your vehicle.

Power windows on driver side door doe'st work.all other doors do.

First check if there is a separate fuse for the single side window.

The most common case is a blown windows switch or a problem with chassis control module, that is a kind of big relay-like part that among other things is controlling electric windows.
If the motor is humming and windows is stuck then the problem is with windows regulators, that are the guides holding the glass. They are inside the door , behind door panel.
