    SATURN 2000 SL1

    The drivers side window rolled down and would not go back up. I took it to a shop which put in a new window motor. It worked three or four times, just to start doing the same thing. It cost $395 parts and labor.

    obviously it wan't the electric motor. I guess I will put in a switch next.

It's the switch.
Put your fingers into the leather shifter boot at the base and feel under the rim to pop the outside ring that holds the faux wood trim at the base of the boot up and out. (The piece is faux wood on an LS2, it may just be colored plastic on an LS1) You may need to do this twice, on each side of the boot, so that the entire piece of trim and the boot pops up and out. The leather boot should still be connected to the trim, it will pop out as a unit.
Once it is out, you can reach into the housing and feel the window switch unit from inside the housing. There is a spring clip on the upper and lower ends of the switch unit, press in the spring clip and pop it up one end at a time. The unit is now out but still attached to the power. I have never unclipped the wire harness but it looks easily doable.
IF YOU ARE REMOVING THIS BECAUSE THE SWITCH IS STICKY you probably DON'T need a new switch - you can spray some contact cleaner in the ports at the side of the unit and underneath the switch, this will probably fix your problem, at least if you have ever spilled a soda anywhere near the switch.

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.

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.
