    I just had the same problem and am researching the cause

    I also have the same problem. all the other windows work just fine.  Also the driver side front door will not shut off the radio when we open it.  We have to open another door to get the radio to shut off!

    Broken wire is the culprit for my 2008 Equinox also. Power mirror only went up & down, no side to side. No power to driver window. Door speaker cut out this week, and also the turn signal only made the "click" noise when turning right. I thought my car had a stroke and paralyzed the left side! All the wires in the rubber boot were cracked, four were broken. Piece of cake to repair and save hundreds at a repair shop.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!

    Do this first. I took the door apart and replaced the motor only to find that the problem was two broken wires in the door boot.

First check to see if you have a broken wire in harness between door and side wall. If not you might have to replace window regulator/motor.

I had the same problem with my wifes car 2007. dr window will not work and power door lock will not unlock the driver door. I had the whole car torn apart, the switch was fine all motors were fine. After you replace the master switch The dealer still has to program it so I ended up bring to the dealer any way, I wish they would have told me that when i bought the master switch.

Grounding problem with my power window motor on a 1997 chevy camero


Test the MASTER switch at the drivers side. It seems to be a "wiring problem with the Master switch. The master switch is the switch that controls ALL the cars windows.

The passenger window switch gets both power and ground from the master switch. You have replaced the passenger side switch and it still had the same result and if the wiring is good from the master switch to the passenger side switch, then the only thing left would be the power window master switch. Check all wiring of the Master switch. That's the only thing that's left to do.

2000 Chevy Blazer Power windows work from drivers


Are you sure the side window lockout switch located on the drivers master switch isn't on? This will kill power to the other three switches.

If your sure its not on than the I would pull the left rear window switch. There will be two dark blue wires one of them should have power all the time. If neither have power than I would pull the drivers master switch and see if there is power at the dark green wires (one will only have power with the left rear window switch in the up position.

If those are good than check the dark blue wires. one will only have power with the drivers front window switch in the up position. the other should have power all the time. If there is power there than you have a broken wire somewhere. The first place I would look is in the rubber boot in between the drivers door and the body of the vehicle.

If there is no power that the switch is bad.

Passenger side automatic window switch is not working in my 2004 Chevy Aveo. The window is operational from the driver's side master switch but not the passenger side. Im thinking its a fuse or a relay,...


Make sure the window lockout button is not depressed on the master window switch. This will turn off the other switches and not let them control there respective windows.

Power is supplied to all the windows from one fuse and one relay. So if the master switch operates the window than we know the fuses and relays are o.k. We know the master switch will operate the window so that tells us the window motor and ground side of the passenger window motor circuit are also good.

Which leaves us with a bad switch or no power to the switch. The passenger window switch gets its power to operate independently from the master switch window lockout button. When the button is off power is supplied to the passenger switch and allows the passenger to operate the window themselves.

The only thing you need to do is check for power at the passenger switch on the brown wire with orange stripe. If there is power there then you have a bad switch.

Drivers window not woring


These driver widow motors are fairly simple. You must have power on one wire and ground the other to make it work. Reverse the polarity and the motor operates in the reverse direction. If you have power on the black wire make sure you have a ground path on the blue and vice versa when you operate the switch in the other direction. There is a possiblity you may have a broke ground wire between the cab and the door causing all the problem.

It does sound like you have a short in the master switch on the drivers side. If the passengers switch does not work, check the left master switch and the window lock switch.

How do I know if my drivers side power window is grounded properl


Hi there,
Try replacing the button that you push up and down. It could be bad under it and not making the connection. Maybe take the panel off and take the switch off, then clean the connecters under the button. Maybe that will do it. Also, you probably already ckeched this, but is the window off track? Well, good luck and let me know. Have a great night.~MWD
