Check the wiring and connectors supplying the driver-side window motor and also the fuses in case each window is fused seperately. The electric motor may have failed. When you operate the switch do you hear the motor working?

? The power window main switch connector, or driver-side power window motor connector has been
disconnected.
? Carry out the following procedure to resume operation:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
2. Press the driver side power window main switch and fully open the driver side window.
3. Pull up the driver side power window main switch to manual-up position to fully close the driver side window,
and keep holding the switch up at the position for about 2 seconds to complete initial setting.

DRIVERS WINDOW WONT CLOSE COMPLETELY


Hi, it sounds like the runners need replacing to do this the door panel will need to come off and the window mechanism stripping down this isnt easy to do and is a big job.

to get the window closed get some one to put their hands on the glass on either side with the door open
so one hand on one side of the glass and one hand on the other side then lower the window slightly then when you press the button to take it up get the other person to push the window forward and if that dont close it all the way get them to pull it backwards whilst its going up and this should then get it closed, dont get them to pull it up or down they need to push it forwards towards the front of the car or backwards towards the back then when you press the up button it should close.

it will need the window mechanism checking it might just be loose but it may need replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have a 2004 Pontiac Montana and the drivers side power sliding door will not close when you press the button. It starts to close and then when it gets a couple inches from latching it just opens back up....


hi...

this is because the door has an option called as anti pich smart window mechanism.this is provided to prevent our hands from crushing when the window been closed. if you keep your hands when closing the window wil come down.there may be some obstruction which is activating this mechanism. check this.

I have the same problem. Read left window does not open.


It may be possible the rear windows are mearly stuck in the closed possition. If they are not used often they can actually stick to the weather stripping in the window frame & not allow it to go down. You can try to "bump the window with the heal of your hand a couple times while holding the window switch down. If this doesn't work you can also try "banging" the door frame. If you can hear something inside the door when you try to operate the window it is usualy the motor trying to open the window. You may need to try to close the window & then try to open the window again in order to hear anything. If you think this may be the case you can also close your hands on the top of the window(one on either side of the window, Inside & out side) and pull down with all the force you can while a friend operates the switch.
If it is not stuck... there is no separate fuse for each window. you will then likely have have a motor or switch issue how ever this is unlikely on the windows that are used the least.
Good luck, hope this helps

Driver side window rolls down. when it goes up it stop. after a little while it will go up a little more but not all the way. it takes several times to close window.


motor has a thermal protection device..you need a window motor, and the regulator and tracks checked 4 binding..I just replaced a motor on a cutlass pass. side now the drivers side is doing the same thing.you can pull up on the window and help it a little by opening the door and placing palms of hands on glass and pulling up on glass while some one else pushes the button..otherwise it takes repeated attempts as you described.motor is not cheap,aftermarket or dealer.

Lowering convertible top


There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.
