Question about 2001 Pontiac Firebird

Power window (driver side only) stops intermittently

When operating the power window, the window will just 'decide' to stop working. However, if I wait 2 to 5 minutes the window will work again as if there is no problem. I have tried replacing the breaker in the fuse box and have checked the wiring connections at the motor and door switch. What am I missing?

Could be a number of wiring things, but may very well be a worn out window roller motor (inside door).  It may be overheating and shutting down until it cools down.  Other than replacing the motor, you might try greasing the moving parts / rollers along the window track (inside door).

How do i fix the driver side window switch


The thing to do first is have the vehicle hooked up to a professional grade scan tool an have it checked for DTC'S in the driver door module , an to see if the scan tool will talk with the module !
Then if no codes are present check for battery power an good grounds at the module ! You have to take the door panel off the door to get at the module . I have one of these modules out in my tool box , I got it at the auto salvage yard . $10.00
In order to control window operations, as well as other door functions, door modules must be powered up. Battery voltage is supplied by the rear fuse block, through separate circuits, to each door module. Each door module is separately grounded through a ground stake. Additionally, the door modules use these power and ground supplies to provide voltage and ground to their associated window switch, and to provide voltage and ground for door lock operations. The front door modules also use these power and ground supplies to power the window express up sensors, and for outside rearview mirror operation .

2007 mazda 6 front and rear driver and rear passenger windows not working.


The windows need to be re-learned.
- Park the car on level floor. Shift the gear lever to P or N. Pull up the hand brake. Start the engine.
- Sit on driver's seat. Lower the driver side window. Keep the button pressed for three to four Seconds after the window glass sits completely.
- Move up the window glass and do the same as above.
- Do the same with passenger side window glass while sitting on the passenger seat.
- Repeat the same procedure for rear windows one by one from their own buttons.
- Sit on a drivers seat and operate all the windows one by one.
Note:
If the problem persists, pull up the body diagnostic error codes with Diagnostic computer or re-learn the windows with the same machine.

Driver seats mountaineer stop working, passenger power seats work


The next time the seat is inoperable pull the switch out and test it for a voltage signal that should be present when the button in question is operated. The switch is the most common issue that I have seen, but hold on replacing it until the switch is tested.

My 2003 2 dr. cavalier driver side window was working intermittently passenger side is ok now my driver side window would not work at all what cold be the problem


Make sure all your Fuses are good... The window motors could be going bad. But I'd check the fuses if they just stopped working without any signs of beings slow or being worn out.

Low/no power to passenger window.


More than likely you have a bad switch. You can try to pry the switch apart and clean the contacts inside. Usually the passenger side switch is pretty inexpensive, around $25-$35. The switches get dirty inside from dirt or water dripping when it rains and the window is opened or if someone might have spilled something on it.

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.
