Most common problem is a broken regulator. If you press the button to open or close you should hear the motor click. If nothing is heard then your switch could be bad, wiring could be bad, motor could be seized.

If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester, 007-00500 or equivalent, to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the driver door module, go to Pinpoint Test A .

If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the driver door module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test B .

Driver's side window inoperable(doesn't go up or down, though it does sound as though a motor does run. Window marginally moves. I have had to manually pull the window up to close.


hello first of all

Well there are only two things that can cause this one is the regulator gears are stripped thats the gear that the motor turns to lift and lower window. Or at the bottom of the glass window when you remove the door panel there is a little plastic tab that goes thru a drilled hole in the glass that may be broken to it common for the plastic to become brittle and break.

On my 2002 vw cabrio, the drivers side front power window works intermittently - mostly won't work. Passenger side is fone as are the rear power windows. Is this a switch problem?


The most common problem with Cabrio auto windows is the Window regulator. Each window has it's own. My wife also owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving window driver window and the passenger was locked in the up position. After inspecting the drivers window, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close, and resulting in the window seeming to have a mind of it's own. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved).
The passenger window was bound up, I also had to remove the regulator and let loose the tension in the cable system by carefully removing the cover over the cable roller. This window works fine now as well.

Drivers side window no power


Have you verified that there is power at the rocker switch. They are very common to break. Does your headlight and panel dimmer switch work. The reason being is your power for the window controlls goes directly through your dimmer switch. If the problem is only isolated to the driver side, i would suspect a bad regulator motor or a bad rocker switch.

Both front power windows stoped working starting with the driver side first then the passenger side is this the motors or what?


assuming the fuse and relay are good. its rare the motor go bad, more likely it will be the main driver window switch is faulty. before you tear into the door assuming is the regulator or the motor which is a pain in the rear to work on I would go ahead and replace the main switch first and its easy and cheap. look on ebay or junk yard for parts. if its not the switch than the regulator wires is broken of have mangle up like a bird nest locking the motor up.

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine


Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.

have the window regulator checked. If you are hearing clicking from both sides, your regulators are worn/damaged. Hopefully this helps
