I have a 2001 Saturn L200 and just had the same problem. Just finished smoking a cig before driving into work and my passenger side window would not go up and it was snowing!!!

After checking this website I quickly found out that this a fairly common defect with the Saturn brand! Since the window switches are located in the middle counsel, they tend to dirty very easy, especially if you smoke, eat, or spill a drink in your car.

Before you go too crazy and pull anything apart...the switch may just need a good cleaning!

You will need a(n).....

  1. large flat head screw driver (3/4" width)
  2. very small flat head screw driver (1/8-1/4" width)
  3. duct tape
  4. Q-tips and toothpicks
  5. cup of HOT soapy water
  6. blow drier or compressor air blaster
Use some small strips of duct tape and cover both screw drivers with tape to protect against scratching the counsel and switch. There are two metal clips under the north and south positions of the perimeter of the switch. Take the small screwdriver and start at the top using small prying movements until you see some give. Take the large screwdriver and use it as a wedge. Continue carefully with the small prying movements and then follow up with the large screw driver all the way around the perimeter until the switch pops out.

Now use the large screwdriver to disconnect the switch from the electrical plug....while in there....check for dust, dirt, and sticky residue from drinks.....clean as needed! Next, examine the switch to see that it is operating correctly. **My car had pop spilled on the switch and was causing it to remain stuck in the down operation of the window!**

Disassemble the switch completely and you will see three pieces. Use the hot soapy water and q-tips and toothpicks to clean every piece good. Be careful to not use too much water on the circuit board you could cause permanent damage! Finally, use an air compressor to air blast each piece good until dry! At this point I was able to get the switch function properly again.

All you should have to do now is work backwards and reassemble the switch into the counsel. Test the operation of your passenger window. If this does not work then you will need a new or replacement switch.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

My windows stopped working on my '97 saturn sl2. I have checked the relay switch and it was ok. I changed out the relay switch and still nothing. There is no fuse under the hood. Any ideas on what to do?


There IS a fuse under the hood...the green 30A big boy labeled power/convenience. Use a multimeter to check power coming into the relay...if it's not there probably the fuse. If it is there, could be the switches.

If it's the fuse, go to a junkyard and get one cheap. But then, they're pretty cheap new too.

RF power window not working properly on 2001 toyota highlander


There should be a relay. Probably located in the PDU box under the hood. If not the motor might be going bad.
