I have an EOS VW 2009 and it had 5 window switches in the driver side door to the front windows and back windows and a switch to push all four windows down/up at the same time. But right now my passenger...

Hi Kimberli,

I suspect that since all windows can be powered up and down, you have issues with I believe 2 specific switches you mentioned that have problems - as a result of possible rain water, melting snow / ice or spillage of beverages. You might be able to clean them up - or replace the ones that are "flaky"

Good luck!

How do I find the fuse floor my door lock left side

Ok if the other windows go down then most likely you have either, 1. a bad motor 2. a bad window regulator which normally goes bad on the gm. But you will have to pull the door panel to get to the unit and check for power to the motor unplugged. You will be able to test power to it as you press the switch up or down being the current is reverse polarity as long as the key is on. Good luck.

My driverside window goes down and wont go up

If you never have worked on a car or inside a door,
then a repair shop

I would say if it goes down, it works, at least the motor
That leaves a failed switch in the up position or broken
window regulator

Po wer window was stuck in the down position. Pulled off door panel and plug had power to the motor for up and down. The GM dealer was out of motors so I went to the local salvage yard. Put used...

well if you have power for up and down at the plug then it isnt a relay or fuse issue or you would have no power, did you just replace the motor only? it might be the regulator also, if it went down and wouldnt go back up then thats probably the issue a failed window regulator and thats the assembly that attaches the window to the motor and allows the motor to move the window

2004 Saturn Vue. Driver's window no longer responds to switch--stuck closed. Other three windows operate just fine. Suggestions?

The first three things to check are
  1. Window Switch
  2. Wiring harness where it goes into the door near the hinge.
  3. Window motor assembly.
It's easiest to do this with a voltmeter (DC Volts function on a digital multimeter, 0-20 V range). Remove the trim panel from the door and inspect the window mechanism to be sure the actuator arm is in place.

If the wiring goes directly from the switch to the motor, that makes identifying terminals easy, and possibility 2. is eliminated since the other windows are known to work through the switch assembly on the door. If the wiring goes out of the door and back in to the motor, see if you can match wire colors at the switch with those on the motor. Turn on accessory power and check for voltage on the motor terminals (connect the meter's COM lead to the motor ground and measure with the V-Ohm lead). You should measure 12 - 13 Volts on one of the motor terminals when you hold the switch in the down position.

If you do not find voltage on any terminal, the problem is 1. or 2. above. Find the power feed to the switch assembly (probably the heaviest wire going to the switch). (If necessary, post back and I will check the library to find out what the wire colors are - I don't have access to it at this time.) Turn off power, switch your meter to the Ohms function (lowest range), and connect the leads between the power feed and the down switch terminal. Hold the down switch on (you may need a helper to give you the third hand). You should read no more than a small fraction of an ohm resistance - close to what you get when you touch the two meter leads together. If this is not the case, the switch is bad. It is possible to pick the switch assembly apart and clean the contacts, but it is a delicate job - the snap-together tabs break very easily, and you have to keep track of the parts for all of the switches.

If you get voltage at the motor, but do not hear the motor running, the motor is either locked up or the thermal protector is burned out. If you hear the motor running, but see no movement, the window transmission is jammed or stripped. If you see the window actuator arm moving a bit, then stopping, the window is stuck. The GM electric window drives I'm familiar with are permanently crimped together and are not designed to be repairable. If the problem is inside the motor and gear assembly, that would have to be replaced as a unit.

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.

Power seat not working

My drivers side power seat stopped moving forward and back...back rest still worked. Took it to dealer and they charged me $60 to fix a "loose wire."
The seat worked for 2-3 days and quit again. Took it back to the dealer, and they now said it needed a new motor and track at a cost of $750+. Told them to forget it and called GM. GM will not cover it, and they have not covered a host of other problems like new radiator, new water pump, new instrument guage cluster, cracked exhaust manifold, and misaligned rear door/window air deflector (which they even have a bulletin out to all service department that it is poor design and the body shop should "shave the plastic down so it doesn't hit roof when door is open).

Back to the seat, I took a large, flat blade screwdriver and ran it along the seat guide rails and pryed on the seat mount slightly....guess what? It the power seat now moves forward and back.

Bottom line is GM manufactures junk and will not stand behind it. Now we know why the company is going bankrupt.

Electrical problem

Instrument cluster problem maybe . Without testing we'd only be guessing . Have seen this a lot at the dealer . The best thing would be to hook up a factory scan tool an check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes first. The electronic's on these vehicles are complex to say the least . All the warning light's , gauge's etc.... are controlled by a module an data network . GM class 2 serial data buss. Power windows also are controlled by a module . DDM - driver door module.

Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
• Driver Door Module (DDM)
• Passenger Door Module (PDM)
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• RR power window switch
• Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
• Window lockout switch
• Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
• LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left windows)
• RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right windows)

Your best bet , take it to the dealer .
