Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

1999 Silverado drivers side power window will not go down.

Makes motor noise but the window does not move. If you force it with your hand while hitting the switch, it starts to go down, but then goes back up.

    Yes the window goes all the way back up on its own. It only goes down about 4 to 5 inches when you force it down.

    I opened the door panel, but I could not determine what the problem was. It is hard to see in there even with everything off. I have not had a chance to work on it again, the weather has been bad. I was worried if it got stuck down, I would not be able to get it back up.

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine


Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.

3.If all is well with the above stuff, just replace the window regulatior and test befor you reasembil the door pannel

you have to replace the window regulator reason why is because the cable ripped which would cause the motor to work without moving the window up or down .. regulator is the cable and the rails were the motor makes the woindow move up and down on. you have to replace it.
