You would probably need to remove the motor from the regulator, pull the window up by hand, then reattach the motor to keep it locked in the up position.

Where is power window relay located 2001 buick regal


There is no relay for power windows !
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver window switch


?€¢
Front Passenger window switch


?€¢
Left Rear window switch


?€¢
Right Rear window switch


?€¢
Window regulator motors in each of the doors


?€¢
PWR WINDOWS PWR SUNROOF Circuit Breaker 30A


When the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACCY position, or Retained Accessory Power (RAP) is enabled and the lockout switch is disengaged, battery positive voltage will be available at the passenger window switches. When an individual window switch is pressed in the down position, battery positive voltage is applied to the window regulator motor causing that window to open. When the individual window switch is pressed in the up position, voltage is applied to the window regulator motor in the opposite direction causing that window to close. The return path to ground is supplied through the inactive control circuit being normally grounded through the driver window switch.

Windows won't go down on an 98 Buick regal. Replaced main switch and window motor on the driver side.


Verify that you are getting voltage to the window switch when the ignition key is ON. If not, check the fuse, and verify that you do not have any broken wires in the door jamb boot. If you ARE getting voltage to the switch, try activating the switch and see that you get power to the motor. If you do not, suspect miswired switch or broken wire to motor. If you do, is the motor making noise? If not, it is likely bad. If it is, your regulator is stuck or the window is simply stuck in its track.

How do I get my right rear window to go up?


Take the door panel off, Try hitting the motor to jar it as sometimes the motor jams as it has went down too far. Hook up the switch and jar the motor if that don't work you can remove motor and get window up and reinstall the motor. (No power, a wire is broken usually in the drivers door as the wires go thru door jams you will have to remove the rubber and pull on the wires individually and one will come into, the splice it back together, sometimes you have to add some wire. You must cut the bad out first. Good Luck!

My rendezouv rear driver window is stuck down. I want to get it to stuck in the up position. How can I release it from the down spot.


You can remove the door panel and unclip the electrical connector. Apply battery voltage and ground to the motor terminals. Switch polarity if the windows goes the wrong way. There is no mechanical way to move the window up unless you cut the cables and then jam the window in the up position with wood. Either way, you'll have to remove the door panel.

THE REAR WINDOWS ON MY 1999 BUICK REGAL WON'T ROLL DOWN. DO YOU THINK IT'S THE MOTOR FOR THE WINDOW AND IF SO DO YOU KNOW WHERE I COULD GET THEM FIXED?


If its both windows and the problem started with both sides at the same time, then the problem is not with the motors. I would check the owners manual to see if there is a specific relay or fuse that controls the rear windows. also.....and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence here, check to make sure the "child safty lock" on the drivers side door panel is not engaged. I've seen that happen before as well.

The leads should be reversed to get a reading on down position ,tap the window motor gently as you push the switch and see if that helps .
If so the motor is bad.........also on alot of vehicles the rear windows don,t go all the way down ,it,s a safety feature for kids or pets in the back seat.

I need the wiring diagram for a 1982 Buick Regal, drivers side, power window switch. I need to know what color wires go where, on the back of the switch. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.


The black wire is usually the ground, that'll be the center connector. Use a jumper wire to go from the front position on the switch to one of the other wires going to the motor. (it's only 12 volts). If the window goes up, you've got the right one The other one is down. If you still need a picture of that, your Buick parts department will show it to you if you say pretty please.

1999 buick regal. driver window doesnt work and driver rear window won't work but I can hear the motor on back window???


It sounds like the rear window problem is the regulator which is cable driven and the motor attaches too. check and see if your cable is binding up or if the wheels on the track are broken. the front window could be a bad switch or the module you need to test and see if you have power to the front window motor. if you do have power it could also possibly be the motor try to jump power and see if it goes up or down if it does then the motor is good.
