Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

Open Question

Only front driver's power window will not operate.Cylinoid?other?

3 of the 4 windows operate but the driver's just stopped one day. I'd like to know if there is something more simple to check before I open the door panel and see if the cylinoid is kaput.

    Same issue....2003 Saturn...all windows were working fine until one day the drivers side just quit. Window switch illuminates, but no humming....nothing. Short time later, the same door has issues with the power locks being intermittent...works sometimes, not sometimes. Wire Harness issue?

  • Anonymous Jan 11, 2009

    Have the same problem. I've thoroughly inspected the wire harness and have found nothing...don't believe it is in the switch either, as both switches (front and rear drivers sides) illuminate and rear window works....power window motor?

SOURCE: Where is the starter cylinoid located on a 1997

The starter solenoid is located ON the starter.

It kicks out the starter gearing to engage the flywheel with a signal from the ignition.

SOURCE: wiring to starter cylinoid for a 1984 Ford Ltd Brom ?

Step1 Disconnect the black negative cable from the battery. Step2 Raise the vehicle using a jack and support it safely on jack stands if necessary. Depending on your vehicle model, you might have to install and wire the starter-solenoid assembly from underneath the car. Step3 Bring the starter as close as possible to its mounting bracket on the engine. Sometimes you can use the jack to support it while you make the electrical connections, and this comes in handy since the starter is somewhat heavy and awkward to work on while you hold it with one hand. Step4 Use a wrench or ratchet and socket to connect the red battery cable to the big bolt on the solenoid and the bypass ignition terminal wire to the small bolt underneath the first bolt. If there is enough room, you might want to start threading the starter mounting bolts without tightening them before you make the connections. Step5 Make sure the wires are well connected and finish mounting the starter on the engine. Step6 Lower the vehicle and reconnect the black negative cable. Remote-Mounted Solenoid Step1 Disconnect the black negative cable from the battery. Step2 Mount the solenoid in place in the engine compartment using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Step3 Connect the red cable coming from the battery to the large bolt on the left-hand side of the solenoid. Step4 Connect the starter cable to the large bolt located on the right-hand side of the solenoid. Step5 Connect the control wire to the small control circuit terminal on the left-hand side of the solenoid. It is usually marked with the letter "S" . Step6 Connect the other small wire to the ignition bypass terminal, which is on the right-hand side of the solenoid. Step7 Reconnect the black negative battery cable.



A fixya rating would be most appreciated. thanks for using fixya:)

UPGRADED TO SAFETY RECALL...

There is currently a recall going on for this problem. You can likely get your money back on the prior repairs as well. See this link http://www.toyota.com/recall/corolla-matrix.html. On the left-hand side, you can click to take you to put in your VIN and see if your vehicle is included. My 2007 vehicle IS included, and I just had the check engine light come on and have been experiencing rough shifting for about 6 months. When the light came on yesterday, it was extremely rough jerky shifting. The light went off today. Took it to Autozone and got same code P2716. Toyota has assigned me a case number, but I won't get a call back until Monday or by close of biz on Tuesday. This problem can cause your car to not start, or to shut down while driving. YIKES! The person I talked to at Toyota acted a little too nonchalant about the whole deal. Telling me to just wait for the call that I will get. She said most dealers would not have the part needed to fix this. According to what I have read. That is the reason why Toyota is not sending out the notification letters to the affected parties until mid-September. Check out all the info and good luck. I am a little bit p.o'd about this right now. - Natalie

SOURCE: my driver window has stopped

if you can hear the motor working but the winodwo is not coming up then it is probably out of the track.. there should be only a few screws holding the door panel on. remove it and put the window in down position. Then you can use your hands to work the window up. When you get it in the up position you can see through the door where the tracks are. Just lower the window back down in the tracks. But first put some good adhesive or silicone in the very bottom track that the windows rests in so that the window will stay attached to the bottom track.. once you have done that, raise the winding using the switch and leave the window in the up position until you are sure the adhesive is dry.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

I need the wiring schematics for driver door panel and all switches in a 2003 Chevy Tahoe. My window won't go down on that side and I'm sure I have a short somewhere because my switch works with all other...


You don't know what your getting into , The door switches have electronic control modules incorporated ,DDM- Driver door module an PDM passenger door module .
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger Door Module (PDM)


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left windows)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right windows)


The DDM contains four power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the two front windows have three positions UP, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only two positions, UP and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a Class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has two positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The two rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a Class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.

  1. Monitor the driver window status data parameter in the driver door module inputs list.
  2. Activate the driver power window switch in the up and down positions.
Does the driver window status data parameter change accordingly?
Go to Step 5
The data link connector (DLC) allows a scan tool to communicate with the class 2 serial data line. The serial data line is the means by which the microprocessor-controlled modules in the vehicle communicate with each other. Once the scan tool is connected to the class 2 serial data line through the DLC, the scan tool can be used to monitor each module for diagnostic purposes and to check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Class 2 serial data is transmitted on a single wire at an average of 10.4 kbps.

most power window circuits use circuit breakers rather than fuses. but if all the other windows work then you rule out a bad circuit breaker/fuse. most likely will be a bad window motor.

He front passenger power window stop working.


Hi!

You need to check the following to resolve the issue you are facing with---

Check for battery voltage at window switch. If no battery voltage at that switch, check for broken wire between door and body. Bad window switch (see if window can be operated by driver switch or individual switch). Bad window switch connector (pin connectors) broken.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
