It could be a couple of things. It's either a bad switch, or a bad motor. Alternately it might be a fuse, but is not as likely if the other windows are working.

SOURCE: Elantra power windows work from door switches but fail from main

It was very srange, but all the contacts inside the switches of the main power window console (mounted in driver's door) were covered with soot.
I have disassembled the switch and cleaned the contacts. All functions well now.
The problem occured on a car that is used very rarely, that was most probably the reason of the sudden failure of the system.
Replacement of the main power windows switch would do the same but I have saved the expense this time. Hope the repair will last until I will sell the car.

SOURCE: no power to drivers door all switces and functions

The door functions in your vehicle are controlled by several control modules and are dependent on proper class2 communications between several modules including
> Body Control Module
> Drivers Door Module
> Passenger Door Module
> Powertrain Control Module
> Instrument Panel Control Module

Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Door Systems. The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:

> The identification of the control module(s) which command the system.
> The ability of the control module(s) to communicate through the serial data circuit.
> The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status.
> The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

The electric windows and door locks only work on drivers side of a 2000 buick le sabre limited. why?


The passenger side locks an windows don't work with thier own switches ? Check for B+ voltage at the front passenger door module . Do you know how to do that ? You need to take the front right door panel off . Check for a broken wire inside the rubber boot from the body to the door .
Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The DDM receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. The DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.

The driver window doesn't slide down slightly when I open the door and close it ! Now the window bangs on the door frame when I close the door!

How to repair the driver side window switch on 2000 oldsmobile bravada


If you can get the switch out without having to take the door's inner panel off, I suppose you could try a salvage yard switch. However, more likely it's not the switch but a problem with the motor-the driver's window is the most used on a car, so likely the first to wear out. Pull the inner panel off and with a spare battery and jumper wires, test the motor operation. Pull off the electrical connector at the motor and hook up the jumper wires-doesn't matter which direction-if nothing happens, reverse your jumper leads-check if motor moves both directions. If motor works now, it was the switch or the wiring from switch to motor. If motor is bad or noisy or slow moving, you will have to replace the motor. Not easy, but doable.

"automatic" window on my 2005 mustang does not


So when it doesn't seal that means the tracks the window have been falling out typically. The door panel needs to come off to inspect the tracks. And if your driver side power window doesn't work, that typically means a seperate problem located in the switch itself. It could also be the wires, so you can run a seperate wire to test the switch by running it directly to the window motor, and pressing the switch down. This can easily be done while the door panel is off so you can hit two problems at the same time.

Driver side door controls not working ,windows , lock/unlock , power mirrors


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

Most cars these days have this designed into the window system. It's a safety issue and I'm afraid there may nothing you can do. If there is more window track below the bottom of the glass, look for stops bolted or riveted in the track. If so, you may be able to move them down. However, this is dependent upon the drive mechanism, which may also limit window travel.

Check the master window control panel on the driver's door. There is probably a lockout switch. It may have a window outline on one end and the same outline with an "X" over it on the other. Press the outline without the "X" and all your windows should work again. As silly as that sounds, a lot of people hit that switch without knowing it. Also, if that switch(lockout) is faulty, none of the windows will work. That happens A LOT!!

My 2002 bonneville's driver window will not go up when I press the switch and the left rear window also will not work. the right side windows front and back work fine. Also when I press the left rear...


Thats a pretty cool trick!!! Try this:

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.

Well my first suggestion is: live with it, because everything is working and moving your finger by half an inch doesn't seems so bad to me.

Otherwise I would visit the nearest Porsche Center and explain them the Problem, they will connect your Car with a Computer an know in an instant whats wrong with it.

Toyota Celica 1988 - Drivers window not working.


Check under the Hood and see if you can Locate the Fuse Relay Box. There is a Relay in this Box for the Windows. Replace this Relay. You really need to try and Locate the Same Model Switch for the Drivers Door as that is the Problem there. Try and Find a Dealership in the States and see if they will Ship you one. Should not be a Problem. Just do a General Search for Dealerships in the USA and Pick. Let me know if the Relay does not work so we can go another Route for Repair. Please Rate my Solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!
