Either your gear/regulator assembly is binding up, or your drive motor for your window is burning out. If you can pull upwards on the window and the drive motor has no problems lifting the gear assembly up to where you lifted the motor, the problem is likely with the motor. If it keeps binding up it is most likely a damaged or misaligned gear assembly.

The procedure to inspect/repair both is the same. You must remove the door panel and visually inspect the gear/regulator for damage or misalignment.

If it is damaged or misaligned, and upon repair you still have the same problem, the added torque needed to raise the window past the damage/misalignment has burned out the motor as well. The longer you go without repairing a damaged/misaligned gear assembly the more likely damage has been caused to the motor as well.

If the gear assembly is fine and the problem persists you must replace the drive motor for the window, then re-assemble the door panel.

If your issue was wiring related the motor likely wouldn't work at all or would cut in an out in a choppy fashion instead of acting like it's losing power over time (as it heats up it loses torque, as it cools it regains some allowing you to try again.)

Right side windows does not work from drivers door or pass.and rear door 2007 Silverado new body


What's with the 1994 C/K 2500 above an 2007 Silverado ? 07 on 94 frame ? New body have all the 07 electronics ?
Power Window System Controls (RPO A31/AN3/DL3)
The power window system will operate anytime the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The driver master control switches are integrated into the DDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the DDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the DDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist and during window motor operation the DDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation.
The DDS controls the passenger window through a GMLAN message to the PDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the PDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the PDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist, and during window motor operation the PDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation. (Scan tool support is available for this system)
Do you know what GMLAN is ? serial data communication network
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN GMLAN is general motors C.A.N
Passenger Power Window Inoperative
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the C1 harness connector at the PDS.
  2. Test for less than 1 ohm between the ground circuit terminal 6 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

  4. Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 2 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.

  6. Ignition OFF, reconnect the harness connector at the PDS.
  7. Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Passenger Window Switch parameters while using the passenger power window switch. The reading should change between Off/Up/Down/Express Down.
  8. ?‡'
    If the parameter does not change, replace the PDS.

  9. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the passenger window motor.
  10. Connect a test lamp between control circuit terminal A and control circuit terminal B.
  11. Ignition ON, command the passenger window UP and DOWN by using the passenger window switch. The test lamp should illuminate when commanding the UP and DOWN states.
  12. ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always OFF during either of the commands, test for a short to ground or open/high resistance on either control circuit. If the circuits test normal, replace the PDS.


    ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always ON, test for a short to voltage on either control circuit. If the circuits test normal, replace the DDS.

  13. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the passenger window motor.

Maybe your motor just need the connections taken off and sprayed down with wd/40 to help the connection. Is this happening on the driver side? if so try useing the passenger side button and see if it opperates same way, it;s a different window motor> good luck to you.

Passenger window stuck down on chrysler grand voyager year 2004


NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO FIX IT, if just one window stuck:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

This way, try this first before spending $ at the dealer, or taking door apart to hit motor. as mentioned above post.

2001 Sierra. My driver side window stopped


The window motors are getting weak. If they are stuck down you can sometimes get them up by giving a firm hard hit on inside lower door panel while holding button up. This can get the windows up until you can get the window motor replaced. If you would like any further assistance feel free to ask, Thank you.
