This is a very common problem with the cadi's. First you have to remove the panel so you can test right at the motor switch. The panel is hard to get off on the cadi's. Behind the door handle there are two clips that are metal and need to be bent upward to releave the pressure. The first clip can be reached by removing the switch housing and you will see the clip towards the rear of the opening. This same type clip is located about 6 inches farther back. The best way to reach this one is by looening the panel and reaching in from underneath with a wide flat tool too push up on the clip while pulling out on the panel lightly. Once you have the panel off, the sound barrier has plastic pop rivets holding it in. Do not pry these off or they will break. Push the center of the rivet in slightly and it will releave the preasure of the rivet and then it will release and you can reuse the rivets. Now that you have the sound barrier off you can test you switches from the motor plug. Unplug the motor and use your volt-meter on the switch side to take your readings. Most likely the regulator has a broken nylon slider. Do not buy parts from the dealer, the regulator cost over $300.00, by your regulator from my website for about $55 shipped right to you. Go to http://www.mobileautoelectric.com and click on new parts at the bottom of the page. Also check my blogs for other repairs http://autoelectricrepair.blogspot.com . Hope this information was useful.

1995 Cutlass Ciera : Can check list to repairing power windows


the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor

Windo motors wont work


The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.
