Question about 2005 GMC Canyon
I disconnected the battery to try to fix the problem with my remote starter. by doing so now the drivers side window doesn't work and the lock/unlock buttons do not work.
Disconnecting the battery will not help. You need the battery to operate any of the windows and door locks. Your remote starter won't work without the battery.
There could be a couple of reasons why your door locks and window stopped working. Can you control the other windows and doors from the driver's side door, and do they work? If they do, then the problem is most likely with those particular buttons. You may have to replace the window unit. You can test it, but before you do you should rule out some other possibilities.
Did the window and locks stop working at the exact same time?

this problem i have repaired many times.. it is normally a broken wire in the flexible rubber tube between the door and the doorjamb from years of flexing back and forth when you open and close the door.. i hope that helps

Check the buttons.. I have an 06 Grand Prix with the Remote starter on the top and it seems that the conductor on the buttons worn out.. Take the keyfob apart, pull the rubber buttons off the chip, lick your finger and touch the place where the unlock (right side of the fob) would be. That should unlock your doors. I just did it with mine. I would just buy another fob on ebay and change the buttons out.. Hope this works
