Buick Centry 2003 window switch no longer working

My windows (all 4) will no longer roll down or up. When I press the down side of the button it makes a buzzing sound. Is there a short? What do I need to replace?

Sounds like a bad ground wire.

    I should have added - it's proabably a broken one in your door hinge area, inside the black rubber.

If the buzzing is sound is coming from the doors, then the motors are going bad. If the buzzing sounds like it's from under the hood, then check the relay switch and see if it went bad and needs to be replaced.

Rear windows on 2002 buick centry do not operate. sometimes they do but it is intermitent


Make sure the window lock-out button is not "set" on the drivers door when they don't work.

Do they both fail at the same time? The above switch could also be defective if they do. If they fail at different times, it is probably the motors if neither the rear door switch nor the drivers switch will work them.

Driver Power Window Won't Go Up


The window regulator has gear teeth on it that connects to a metal track attached to the window glass. The teeth are most likely stripped and the grinding noise is the motor trying to mate to the broken teeth. You need to replace the window regulator and I wouldn't hesitate to replace the motor at the same time. It's a costly fix but worth it to only have to be inside the door once and the motor will have to be removed at the same time the regulator is replaced. If you can reach the glass and pull up on it at the same time you can probably get it to roll up as a temporary fix.

Windows will work only from driver side controls


I solved the issue by taking the switch apart and soldering a jumper across the contacts for the window lock. Even though the window lock is no longer functional....my wife is happy she can roll down here window.
