SOURCE: 2002 Buick Lesabre drivers side window went down,

A couple of things to add to tinyp's solution. For Buicks, the regulator is bolted in, not riveted, which makes removal easier. Also, you'd better get used to this, as I have replaced 3 out of 4 window regulators on my 2002 LeSabre.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy impala rear driver power window stopped going up.stuck

If neither switch works it is a bad connection at the motor or bad ground or a bad motor. Remove the door panel unplug the motor push the switch and see if there is 12volts on the wires if there is the motor is bad There are small brushes in the motor that go bad tap on the motor while pushing the switch if it works that way replace it

SOURCE: Removing a door panel on a 1988 chevy C15 truck

There should be a couple of screws on the arm rest that you need to remove and probably one on the door handle then you need to find something to pry the panel off with, without breaking the plastic clips. They make a special tool for this that you can buy for just a few dollars at any auto parts store. If attempting to do it without the right tool be careful not to break the clips.

SOURCE: REMOVING A DOOR PANEL

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

The passenger side window went down and wont go back up


START THE VEHICLE, FOR MORE VOLTAGE, HOLD THE WINDOW SWITCH IN UP POSITION, SHUT THE DOOR WITH A LITTLE FORCE, NOT ENOUGH TO BREAK THE WINDOW. SOMETIMES WINDOW MOTORS GET STUCK. IF THE OTHER DOOR PANELS HAVE THE SAME WINDOW SWITCH YOU CAN SWAP THE SWITCHES TO SEE IF THE SWITCH IS THE PROBLEM THE WINDOW MAY GO UP . IF NOT THE DOOR PANEL WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FOR MORE TESTING .

Passenger side window stuck in down position


Volcompunker is on track.... if it is a stuck motor problem, before taking door apart, try this...it may work, works well on dodge caravans...

NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

Front passenger side window is stuck in the down position


Sounds like the regualte or push arm is broken. If there is no spound then sounds like the regulator. The inside door trim has to be taken off, find the regualator, remove and replace should be ok then.

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down


Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.
