Question about 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Power windows stopped working.

Same here . Passenger side didn't work when I got the car, driver's side stopped working a week ago. I changed all the fuses and the 2 breakers. Still nothing. If anybody knows this one, they're not telling. Oh yea, the fuse panel door is to the left when you open the glove box, easy to miss.

Likely a bad master switch (the main window switch located in the driver's door). All other switches seek ground through the master switch so the effect quite often is the master switch can cause loss of window power on other doors. Given that the driver's window has also now quit makes this switch even more suspect.

All of my power windows stopped working


Sounds to me like he disconnected something when he was working and didn't connect it back. Under the driver side dash is where the main wires come in for all the electrical components. The main for the windows and door locks is coming down from the driver door and could be disconnected there. all the fuses that work those are under the hood and not inside the car. Let me know what you find out.

Passenger side power window does not work


We had this problem and just actually fixed it today. Had tried a passenger side door switch but that didn't help. We ended up buying and replacing the drivers side door switch and that solved the problem of our passenger side window not going up or down. The driver side switch is a one piece unit available from the dealer and it controls both driver and passenger side windows.

My front passenger, rear driver and sunroof windows have all stopped working and up until 3 weeks ago worked fine.Rear driver and front passenger windows work fine. New battery put in today and no change.


Check the master window control panel on the drivers 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 folks hit the lockout switch and don't know it. On the other hand, the lockout switch is bad.

Front passenger side window quit working about a year ago. Driver window quit this week. Fuse? Motor? Help.


Sounds like a motor issue. Remove the door panel and check power to the motor whe the switch is pressed. If you have power in both directions the motor is bad.

Neither window will respond to the button controls. Drivers side did this for about a month a year ago and then snapped out of it for about a year. It quit again 2 weeks ago and now the passenger side does...


Since you didn't mention that the window was moving slower before it stopped moving at all, it sounds as though you have corrosion on the wondow controller in the driver side door. If qualified, take the door panel off, remove the plug and clean the contacts. If that doesn't work, I suggest buying the switch controller and installing it. Shouldn't have an issue after that. The drivers side door could cause the issue with the passenger door in some vehilces, but I cannot find any information stating that it should in your vehicle.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.
