If you can get the switch out without having to take the door's inner panel off, I suppose you could try a salvage yard switch. However, more likely it's not the switch but a problem with the motor-the driver's window is the most used on a car, so likely the first to wear out. Pull the inner panel off and with a spare battery and jumper wires, test the motor operation. Pull off the electrical connector at the motor and hook up the jumper wires-doesn't matter which direction-if nothing happens, reverse your jumper leads-check if motor moves both directions. If motor works now, it was the switch or the wiring from switch to motor. If motor is bad or noisy or slow moving, you will have to replace the motor. Not easy, but doable.

SOURCE: power window will not roll up

its always the driver's side ..
you have to take the door panel off
then see if you can reach the moter
see if the wires are making contact
take them off and check for power
put them back on
if it doesn't work and you hear no sound
try putting something like a piece of wood up against the side of the motor and give it [the wood] a fir couple of taps with a hammer
then try again.
if that doesn't work you need to take the motor out and replace it.

SOURCE: drivers side power window switch does not work

If the other ones work its not a breaker fuse. Since the power for other windows feed through the drivers switch. Try a new or used switch.

SOURCE: 2000 alero driver side window won't go

You may have a bad switch, or a bad regulator or motor....
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can test the switch to see if it's the switch that's broken. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the insides of the door and check the motor, regulator

Where is a body control module located on the bravada my driver window works but the other three won't roll down with the indivdual switches

The body control module does not have anything to do with the windows.Depending on the year of your vehicle there is a drivers door module for the drivers and passengers side.What you should do is see if you are getting power to those switches that don`t work.Do they roll down with the drivers switch?If you post back make sure and include the year of your vehicle and I can look at the schematic for your windows.Good luck.

Lets see thats the center plug on the drivers side of the engine. I dont have a Bravada handy to look but I am assuming that either the steering shaft is in the way.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window

I had the same was the window gear that got stuck when the window was all the way up. (that's the clicking) I took my panel off and banged on the inside of the door with a rubber mallet. The window works again. Since then I make sure when I role the window all the way up to stop that I just barely tap the down button to release the pressure on the gear inside. When your using the hammer...hold the switch in the down mode...ignition on of course.
