Question about 2000 Cadillac DeVille
My driver side rear window won't let down when the door is closed but it will with the door open .
It sounds like the wire harness has a break in the wire from the body frame to the door frame at the door hinge. You'll see a rubber tube that runs from the body frame to the door and the wire harness is in there, as the door is open the wires make contact and as the door is close the wire breaks causing your window to react the way they do. You can by the wire harness or you can repair the damaged wire to your window you self by taking the rubber tube off one side, door or body to get to the wires inside and find which wire is the one for the window and repair it. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted. be glad to help.

Maybe its jammed, or the rail of the motor or the manual handle is moved out of the place. or the rail of the window is damage(out of place) to make work.

Tips for a great answer:
Passenger Door Module (PDM)
Body Control Module (BCM)
RR power window switch
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
Window lockout switch
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left windows)
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right windows)
The DDM contains four power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the two front windows have three positions UP, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only two positions, UP and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a Class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has two positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The two rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a Class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.
You need a scan tool to diagnose these systems

Did you perform the Door Systems Diagnostic System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Door Systems
Operate the driver power window in the UP and DOWN directions.
Does the driver power window operate properly?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3
