Is it cold where you are?

What shape is the weather stripping in at the bottom of rthe window on the outside?

I had the same problem, replaced the weatherstripping and the problem went away.

Apparently moisture/water gets in easily and freezes up.

Was told its a common probelm

Take off every removable plastic bit and look for screws that hold the inner door panel on. Take off any little plastic caps, see if a power window switch pries up easily, maybe a speaker grille comes off.
Don't force the inner panel off--if it seems really tight, look for another hidden screw!

    • You should look for your car’s battery under its hood. Then follow
      it up by detaching the negative wire in the battery from your car’s

    • Now, you need to takeout the interior door panel of the window,
      which is not working. You should remove all the things present on the
      side of the window, which might fall of. When all the bolts and screws
      are removed, you need to shake the panel for loosening it up from the
      bracket, which holds it in place

    • Prior to troubleshooting, you should detach wirings of power windows and power door locks

    • You should begin the process of assessing fuses of your power
      window. If its fuse has been busted, what you need to do is simply
      change it

    • If fuse is properly working, then you should get a multi-meter for
      checking if wiring of your power window might be causing you the
      problem. By doing so, you can easily come to a conclusion, if your
      power window’s motor is the main culprit or not. For doing better
      assessment, you should also test the switch’s wiring

    • If there’s really a need for replacing motor of your car’s power
      window as it has been gauged in the reading of multi-meter, you need to
      simply unscrew the bolts, which attach the motor to its door

    • When you have removed the old motor, you need to screw a new motor
      in its place. Now, use the multi-meter again. This will help you to
      know whether your power window is working or not, prior to reinstalling
      the interior door panel

Window wont raise

If its automatic, and all other windows raise with the button panel on the drivers door, then your problem is the motor within the door that raises or lowers the window. Easy quick fix.

If manual, the window probably got stuck and is jammed up within the door and needs to be bumped or put back on the track.

Driver side passenger window won't raise back up

It is either the motor of the switch. Operate the switch while listening where the sound is coming from in the door. Then while you are trying to raise the window, hit the interior door panel with some force, not enough to break anything, but hard enough to contact the motor. If it is binding it should allow the window to raise. If it is trying to raise it is probably the motor.

the actual power window motor is getting old and probably needs replacement. as they age they get slower and picky about which way they want to go, outside temp also affects the operation also. in warmer weather they tend to work better

Driver's side window will not work. We have replaced the switch and it is still not working- all other windows are fine.

Have you checked with a volt meter that you are getting 12volts at the switch? If you have voltage coming to and going out of the switch then your problem is the motor that raises and lowers the window. There are many Ebay vendors that sell replacement motors for way less than a factory brand unit. Search for Tahoe power window motor - I got lots of hits, cost around $38. Changing it takes a little time and effort (about 3 wrenches hard) but can be done if you want to save a bunch of bucks.
Good luck...
