I suggest the motor is either sticking or bad. you have to take the panel off and fool with the window motor by tapping it or just removing it from the window and then push the up button.

My 2001 Bonneville only 1 window works the drivers side. I know all the motors are good . What could it be?


Terrell, some of the wires may be pinched or may have broken over time in the bundle of wires that go through the driver side pillar and into door from constant flexing of opening and closing door. I believe the master switch on drivers door is where the power gets sent to the other window controls. In the links below, some talk about moisture getting inside the plug to a controller for the windows. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Thank yo for the schematic Ernesto. It says Nissan 1996, so is the 2008 still using the same schematic?


It can be issue with motor itself.If its not going up,then how its working down.But still it feels like weak window motor or is issue with power window switch.Get the voltage tested at switch and motor.Also try another working window motor at not working window side.

Passenger side power window does not work


We had this problem and just actually fixed it today. Had tried a passenger side door switch but that didn't help. We ended up buying and replacing the drivers side door switch and that solved the problem of our passenger side window not going up or down. The driver side switch is a one piece unit available from the dealer and it controls both driver and passenger side windows.

Power window switch on drivers side not workin


Check the fuse first, each power window has it own circuit as they draw a lot of power. You owners manual will have a fuse chart and where they are. If the fuse is OK, try and pry out the switch, or in some Pontiac's they come out with part of the panel. Check to see if the wires are connected or that they are not damaged. If they are OK, get a switch from another window and hook it up to the bad one. If this works then you need a new window switch.

2002 pontiac montana passanger pwr window


I beleive you need to change the Power Window Switches Module in the drivers side door panel, as these connections are interlinked within this module and it is usually the first part that fails. Especially that you already changed the switches & motor in the passenger door and it still does not work. Once you remove the dual switch module in the driver's side door, you will understand what I mean. Plus it is really easy to access. Good luck! I have the same model, Claude

Power window on driver side does not open either side of windows.. do I need a main switch on driver side. or do I need both switches for both windows


First: Does the passenger side switch open the window. If so it is probably the master switch on the drivers door. On most of those the driver side is a master switch meaning one unit with 4 switches. Its very easy and cheap if you can find one at a junk yard just swap it out. You should be able to pry out the switch from the door panel and then click out the switch and plug in the new one.

My 1997 Pontiac Grand Am driver side window will not roll up but passenger side works completely


I have a 1999 grand prix and I had this same problem. It was my switch on the drivers side cluster. I bought a whole used cluster on ebay for $25. We tested my motor by applying power to the motor with 12 volts from a battery. a power window motor window has 2 wires. put (+) on one, and (-) on another and one way will take the window up, the other will roll it down.
