Pull off the door panel and make sure the motor is turning and there is nothing blocking the window from going up or down the motor might be burnt out but the switch is still clicking the relay on and make sure you spray the gears and window wires not the electrical wire with white lithium greese

    yes you can fix this your self it really easy and if you want a cheap fix you can go to a junkyard and find the same motor and window kit out of the chevy cars out there alot of them will be inerchangeable and will probly take about 1 hour to fix

Hi!

Due to following issues driver side window will not go down or up while pushing window button.

First of all check battery voltage at window switch. If there is no voltage at that switch, then check for any broken wire between door and body. It may also be due to bad window motor or bad window switch (see if window can be operated by driver switch or individual switch). There may also be bad window switch connector (pin connectors broken). Please also check for lockout switch if it is bad.

Please replace any part which is bad and it will resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

One of two things has happened here, the window regulator is defective or the glass is detached from the regulator.

Yes. When left in the convertible position the top seems to shrink a little. Have someone to push the top up button while you pull down on the top and try to latch one side. Passenger side usually works for me. After that you can latch the driver side. The less you leave the top in the boot the better.

Have a 97 chevy venture. The driver side window rolls down but won't roll back up.


I guess you mean goes down when you press the electric button down and theres no sound orpower to go back up if you pust the button for down again it'll try to go down, but not up. If this is the case the window switch has failed, as long it's the window in the drivers door.

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
