2001 GMC Sierra Power Window problem

I have a 2001 GMC Sierra, a couple of months ago my driver side window stopped working, thankfully it was up. I did some problem shooting myself and came across thinking the motor was shot, I would hit the switch and hear a clicking noise and the dome light would go off. Here is where it gets weird. After installing the new motor I tried the window and wala, it works again so I shut my door and the passenger door and go to try it again and nothing happens. I opened the drivers side door and my brother opened the passenger side door and i hit the button and it works. So the window only works when both of my doors are open and thats it not just one but both doors, you should see me pulling up to a toll booth, pretty comical. So my question is what is wrong with my truck? Haha any suggestions would be great.

Thanks
Tom

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.

Driver's Side Power window control panel on door doesn't work.


I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I took it to a mechanic who has the same vehicle and he said it was the switch in my driver side door panel. Not that big a deal, but a little costly and the switch has to be programmed by a dealer wich is BS. The mechanic put the switch on and it will work on all my other windows except my driver window. so good luck.
