You have a job ahead of you, most are bolted in and can be taken out as an assebly. sometimes you have to replace the motor as well as the cable assembly. thats the way gm does things. you may have one or two rivets to drill out that holds the guide assembly. do not overtighten the nuts that hold your glass onto the guide

Fuse or bad switch. Could also be a bad motor. Would have it inspected by a mechanic, but if your handy you could always attempt to use a volt meter and figure out where the power stops.

I have a 2003 GMC Denali and the drivers door window will not go down. It was making a grinding noise a few times before it stopped working

probably a cable operated setup but regardless, its the motor or regulator. if its cable operated u want to get the motor/regulator combo. the cables fray and get f'd up after awhile. to be sure, take the door panel off and make sure u have power and ground on the motor terminal (only two wires plug in they swap pos and neg with up and down)

Dodge caravan window driver side doesn't get down motor tries but is like it is stuck

sounds like the window regulator. this is the cable mechanism that the motor runs to pull the window up and down. sometimes after time the cables fray and break or get tangled. need to remove inner door panel to replace, and is usually sold as a set, regulator and motor together.

1990 maxima Drivers side window, will power down but won't go back up

Check the cable that lifts the window. If the cable is frayed or twisted and stuck the window will not work.

If this is the case the window regulator assembly must be replaced. It contains the bracked and cables that operate the window. It cost about $100.

I replaced all four on my 1990 maxima.
