If no windows work, likely one of two possibilities: either the driver's door master switch is bad, or you have broken wires at the driver's door opening, could be the power wire to the switch or the ground wire from the switch going into the cabin.
Check the wires by peeling back or removing the rubber boot around the wires at the door opening. Check carefully for broken wires. The ground wire is probably black. It will start at the master switch and run with the other wires back into the car, and then go to a nearby ground source, maybe behind the driver's kick panel-the trim piece below the dash and just above the floor.
If you find no broken wires, and you have no electrical testing tools (like a test light or voltmeter) or don't want to test the switch, you could try a known good master switch and see if that works. With a test light, check for one hot wire at the switch, with key on. If good, test the ground wire: key on, one test light lead on the hot wire, other test light lead on the ground wire terminal. If ground is good, test light will light up.
Good luck. More likely you have broken wires at the door opening, but possibly a master switch.

    Forgot to add, you could check for a fuse, but probably uses a circuit breaker for the power windows, rather than a fuse. Circuit breakers seldom fail.

Check the fuse to your windows first. if the problem still occurs the motor might be faulty.

SOURCE: i have a 1997 buick skylark (4-door). power

Some times the tracks that the window rides in (inside the door) get gunked up and dirty with the factory lube and dust. this makes the window motor work harder and the overheat and stop. Clean the tracks that the window rollers are in and relube using white grease. the windows should work easer and smoother.

your window does not ride on a track the motor has a gear that drives a mechanism up and down. it sounds like the motor came loose.
pop the door panel and remount the motor, first pull the window all the way up. hope this helps

I just rolled my 98 buick skylark i want to know how to repair it and how much it would cost


with out knowing exactly how long it was running for upside down I would suggest that the engine is damaged It may have a hydraulic lock in a cylinder ( full of water)
If the car was upside down, I imagine considerable body and panel damage
Best advice is to save your money , junk it and get another mobile car.
