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: 94 chevy s10 blazer power windows not working

I had the same problem - driver side fine, passenger side front not working/slow or the back seat. You need to replace the window motor on the passenger side. Yes, there are two motors. It's pretty simple if you are handy with some tools. The hardest part is getting the 4 mounts that hold the window motor to the door off. The are factory riveted to the door, so I had to grind the outsides off and tap them out. Just watch the spring lever that holds the window bar for going up and down. I didn't pay attention and it snapped back - nearly broke my thumb.

SOURCE: My 2002 Chevy Tahoe's driverside window won't go

You will need to remove the door panel and check that all the linkage is in the proper place and snugged down. The gears from the motor to the window mechanism may be stripped or not making proper contact. The motor may also be bad as it takes more power to roll the window up than down.

I have a 2002 chevy silverado and i have changed the switch and the motor on the passenger side window and it still doesnt work

If you changed the switch in the passenger door, the problem may be in the master switch in the driver's door. It powers the passenger side switch.

2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 passenger window does not roll up or down. When I press the switch on the drivers or passenger side a click is heard. Could it be a regulator or motor?

This vehicle has a cable style regulator, which has probably snapped a cable. Replacement regulators come with a motor already installed. New aftermarket units cost around 125 to 150 and are fairly easy to install.

Is there a fuse for the drivers side window? the window wont go down. all other windows work

Hi there,

All power windows are controlled by the same fuse.

Therefore, the most logical problem will lie either with the driver's window 'switch' or the driver's window regulator 'motor'.

If you know how to remove the internal door panel to gain access to the 2-wire connector on the regulator motor, undo the connector and using suitable jumper wires, connect each plug wire to a spare 12v battery - this should operate the motor. Then, reverse the wires on the battery and the regulator motor should move the opposite way.

If the motor operates "continuously" in both directions when connected directly to battery power, then the fault lies in the driver's master window switch.

If the motor fails to move "continuously" (ie it stops part way) in either direction, then the motor on the window regulator is faulty and should be replaced with a known good motor.

Why doesn't my auto window button work on my ford 01 f150. The window rolls down fine but the auto function doesn't work. It started doing that after I changed a bad battery and put in a new one.

. May need to reprogram module due to disconnect.
CAUTION: Prior to removal of the GEM, it is necessary to upload module configuration information to a diagnostic tool. This information needs to be downloaded into the new module once installed. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01.

The following is list of GEM/CTM-controlled functions:
  • wipers/washers (front/rear)
  • warning chimes
  • battery saver
  • illuminated entry and courtesy lamps
  • accessory delay
  • driver power window (GEM only)
The GEM constantly monitors its subsystems for concerns. If a concern is found in one of the subsystems, the GEM will record the concern in the form of a diagnostic trouble code (DTC). The ignition switch position is very important to the GEM function. Often times, erratic or unexpected GEM function can be traced to concerns with ignition switch inputs.

Principles of Operation:
The generic electronic module (GEM) controls the opening of the driver window by activating the one-touch down window relay.
The GEM controls manual down and auto down window movement with the down window relay. The relay is activated by applying ground directly to one side of the down window relay coil, and deactivated by removing the ground signal. The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the roof opening panel (if equipped). The delayed accessory feature is active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the driver and passenger doors are closed.
Down window motion operates in two modes, manual mode and auto mode. When the GEM detects the first down position, first detent on the switch, it enters manual mode. In manual mode, the window will move downward only while the switch is depressed. Similarly, when the GEM detects the second down position, second detent on the switch, it enters auto mode. In auto mode, the window will open completely with just a momentary press of the switch.
the GEM will activate the one-touch down window relay until one of the following conditions is met:
  • The driver window control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The driver window control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the down position (first detent) or the one-touch down position (second detent).
  • Seven seconds have elapsed since the one-touch down feature was initiated.
  • A window regulator motor stall condition is detected on the one-touch down sense line inputs.
The GEM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:
  • the driver/passenger door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • 10 minutes have elapsed since the ignition switch was changed from ACC or RUN to the OFF/LOCK position.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.

  1. If the scan tool does not power up:
    • check that the program card is correctly installed.
    • check the connections to the vehicle.
    • check the ignition switch is in RUN position.
    • If the scan tool still does not power up, refer to the scan tool manual.
  1. Carry out the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the scan tool responds with:
    • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT70 = ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP, refer to Section 418-00.
    • SYSTEM PASSED, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs, and carry out the self-test diagnostics for the GEM.
  1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the GEM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.

The power window switch on the driver's door of my 2005 civic hybrid for the right rear passenger window only rolls the window down, not up (the switch on the passenger window door works fine). I'm having...

If your window rolled down than means your window regulator is getting power. It's most likely your switches are bad.

When you use the down switch it supplies power to your window regulator. When you use the up switch it supplies power also but the polarities are switch which causes the window to roll in the opposite direction.

Sounds like your up switch is not making a complete connection to make your window roll back up.

For parts, check this LINK.

Good luck.

Power window on 2001 chevy silvrado

Sounds like your gears are striped out inside the motor. I had the same problem on a car of mine. I just went to a parts store and bought the gear and took the motor apart and fixed it myself. It cost 18 dollars with tax.

Good Luck.
