You won't be able to determine what's wrong without gaining access to the speaker.

SOURCE: How do I know if my drivers side power window is grounded properl

Hi there,
Try replacing the button that you push up and down. It could be bad under it and not making the connection. Maybe take the panel off and take the switch off, then clean the connecters under the button. Maybe that will do it. Also, you probably already ckeched this, but is the window off track? Well, good luck and let me know. Have a great night.~MWD

Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: my 1996 chevy suburban wont start

If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

I have no tail lights on my 1996 Chevy Suburban. Not sure if it is a ground problem or in the head light switch. What is the best way to go about tracking down the source of the problem/

I had the same problem with mine. I unscrewed the white ground wire from the frame back underneath by the rear license plate and cleaned off all the rust with a dremmel tool and screwed it back in. Then they worked. One week later, they were out again. I checked the ground again and I couldn't believe the amount of new rust. So I cleaned off the rust again and this time I coated everything with dielectric grease. So far, a year later, no problem.

Are there two oxygen sensors on a chevy suburban or four its a wheel drive with a v-8 our

Hi, if the suburban is 1996, or newer, you will have 4 O2 sensors. The sensor mounted before the catalytic converter, is sensor 1, and the sensor after the cat, sensor 2. These can also be referred to as pre, or post. The driver, or left side of the engine, is bank 1, as the passenger, or right hand is bank 2. years prior to this, use 1 O2 sensor. Good luck...Coop

1996 Chevy Suburban Electric Locks

It might be that driver side control unit. They've been reported to have problems with short circuits (even mine has had problems) Check fuses. However, a junkyard is probably the only hope for finding those relays -GM generally doesn't make them anymore.
