Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

When I start the car the automatic down function on the driver's side window kicks in and gets stuck all the way down. Then I'm fighting back and forth with it to go back up because the down function is stuck. It's cold and I have a toddler. :( Buick Century 03 57,000 miles.

Sounds like a malfunctioning window switch that needs replaced, it shouldn't;more than one hour shop time plus the cost of your switch at your mechanic shop. 30 years plus auto mechanic

SOURCE: 2003 Buick Century - window problem

I've had a similar problem with my 2003 Buick Century. In my case, the driver's side front window one day went up and would not come down. I knew that the switch was malfunctioning by sticking in the up position since the window continued up despite the fact that Iet off the switch when the window was half way up and it continued going up. I had to pull over and pull the master switch assembly from the door panel and unplug it to prevent the window motor from being damaged by the constant power feeding it after the window was up. Basically, it would have burned the motor out. I cleaned the switch and it now works fine most of the time. I still need to replace the assembly. Not sure this is the reason in your case. I would check the back window and see if it goes down with the switch on the back door panel. If it does, then you are having problem with the master switch assembly on your front door panel. Moisture from rain from the window being down during rain or dirt may have corroded the switches' contacts.

Where is the bcm located on a 2000 pontiac firebird


It is behind the kick panel on the driver's side. Rather, it is just above that, but you'll need to remove the kick panel and the knee pad (part under steering wheel) to get to it.

Mazda 6 passenger window won't go up!!!


It sounds like it could be the window solenoid, or the window motor. It's unlikely the switches on both doors are bad. Check the solenoids and motors...

Hyundai ix35 2012 window lock stuck. passenger window half down and cant get it to move up or down


Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

Clicking noise in driver's side window


Your master switch is stuck in the running position and need to be replaced. Very simple to do. The reason your battery is running down is the switch is constantly activated and draining the system. Once you replace the switch everything will be good

I HAVE NO DRIVERSIDE HEAT


The actuator that 'blends' cold with hot is stuck in the cold position. There are a couple of options. Disconnect the battery, then drive the vehicle around without using the AC for 10 min, if the AC is defaulted to come on after a battery interuption, then shut the car down then turn it on again. You are trying to get the electronic actuator to reset and resume proper function. Another option is to try this: Start the car, adjust the pax side full hot, drivers full cold, wait 30 sec then shut car down, then start car back up and reverse the settings, pax full cold, drivers full hot. In both solutions, the vent actuators are stuck at either the full open or full closed, so you are trying to get it to 'self check' and allow them to resume proper function. After two years, I simply removed them altogether since I live where it is hot an only need cold.works just fine....

I have a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. The drivers side blows hot air and the passenger side blows cold air. The car has that dual zone climate control. I have no clue where to start.

1997 pontaic grand prix driver side window stuck in down position. think switch is bad ,but while waiting for switch is there a way to get window up?


The only way I know to get the window up is to remove the door panel and run the window motor with jumper wires. However, before you replace the switch (which is not usually the problem) you should check the wires on the driver's door between the point where the wires exit the door and enter the kick panel area. It's common for the wires and insulation to break down over the years, and since the driver's door is opened and closed the most, causing the wires to bend back and forth, it is a common failure. The passenger side window uses the wiring in the driver's side door to operate.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.
