My driver side window wont roll up


First check the fuses for both electric windows if they are good.The fuse box one is on the engine compartment driver side look for long retangular black box and open the fuse cover the cover should designate what the fuses and relay is for the other is on the driver side under the dashboard just above your left foot look under you should see another fuse box.If both fuses are good,then your going to have to check the window regulator which is inside each door.Open the door panel and check window regulator morethan likely the regulator assembly need to be change.You might just need the motor.The whole assembly is quite expensive.

You will have to remove the button cover with a flat tool such as a screw driver, and use alcohol with a cotton swab to clean the electrical contacts.

ELECTRIC WINDOWS, WINDOWS ON DRIVER SIDE FRONT AND BACK WILL NOT COME DOWN,PASSENGER SIDE WILL.


Is there a noise coming from the doors that aren't working? If there isn't, it's probably your switch, if there is a constant wrrrring noise, probably the motor. Each door usually has it's own electric motor, that could be the issue. If you know how to use an ohm meter, take off your door panel and check the motor per the specs in your manual. If you can track down a Chilton manual for your car, it will be of tremendous help. Chiltons have wiring diagrams in the back for all of the different systems of your car.

Driver side electric window wont go down.have replaced the window motor assemble and replaced master switch and still not working. its on 99silverado


I believe there is a relay that needs to be reset after you replace the motor. Get a tester and make sure the wire is getting electricity to it too and that it's not just a fuse that's the problem. Hope it helps!

You need to replace the window regulator assembly.
