    Where is this mechanism? It appears to operate on opening of the door not operation of the handle or lock itself. Do I have to access inside the door?

My guess is the door lock mechanism is faulty.if the window control unit does not see a signal for the door being opened it will not raise or lower the window...does the interior light opperate when the door is opened???.if not you can put money on it being the mechanism.

2008 pontiac g6 drivers window, when handle is lifted the window does not drop the inch or so that it should.


The window indexing feature is used to lower the driver and passenger power windows approximately 4 mm when the door is opened. This is necessary to allow the top edge of the window to clear the window weather-strip. This feature will also raise the window to the fully seated position once the door is closed.
Is just the driver door not working ?
Observe the operation of the driver window and front passenger window while opening and closing their respective doors. The windows should index DOWN and UP when the doors are opened and closed.
? If either window does not index UP or DOWN, refer to Window Index Feature Malfunction.

Window Index Feature Malfunction
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw and Door Ajar Switch parameters while opening and closing the driver and passenger doors, the parameter should change from Door Closed to Door Ajar.
? If the parameter does not change when opening and closing the doors, refer to Door Ajar Indicator Malfunction .
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate window motor.
Ignition ON, with the door closed, test for greater than 10 volts between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
With the door open, test for less than 1 volt between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
If all circuits test normal, replace the window motor.

Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop (GM dealer )

Drivers door window makes noise but won't raise or lower and back windows won't raise or lower on either switch but passenger door window works? Can't find an obvious wiring problem


It's not a wiring problem. Rather,i think your window has slipped off the track. You will to open up the door panel to get to it and fix it.

try this to rest the windows

Lower the window all the way manually.
Then manually raise the window for about 2-3 secs and stop.
Then manually raise the window all the way to the top and stop.
Then manually raise the window (actually just hold the button up as the window can't raise further) for 2-3 secs.

Manually raise power windows


I don't know of a manual solution apart from dismantling the door, but if the windows don't close by the normal switch there may be an override. Try holding the key turned when locking the driver's door.

what car

electric windows.
can fail for 3reasons
power does not reach the motor.
motor is bad
the guides are seized.

some times, the motor seems good but is weak, bad internal
commutator. (2/3s power)?

use a voltmeter see if 12v reaches motor on demand (push switch)
if that is ok, we have it down to 2 problems in 5min flat.
you could then disconnect the motor, and see if the windown
can be operated by hand, if not , its jammed
if you can , then the motor is bad or weak.

you are now IMPOWERED.
