Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

2 Answers

My passenger window stopped working, I have eliminated the motor and switch as the problem by systematically removing and replacing them. What else could could be wrong? Are there relays? If so, where are they located?

    No. Just the front passenger window. When the problem began the window started raising with difficulty and then would stop. A click would be heard and then the the switch would work again. Finally the window just stopped altogether.

A common problem with these is the window regulator. The cable either breaks or becomes bound up. Feel where metal pieces go up & down in the door as that is usually where they break.

We had the same problem. Not the motor, etc. It was the regulator. It was bent. Shop said that most people will try and replace the motors and end up bending the regulator. It cost us $177.00 total to get fixed. Window had been slow and we figured it was the motor so we replaced that first but no help at all. We were afriad we were going to end up breaking the window and put it in.

2003 navigator driver window not working


Direct feed the motor from the vehicle battery, if it works then the fault is in the switch or the wiring, swop the switch with the passenger side switch and try that, that will eliminate a switch fault. 11.4 volts is low, what is battery voltage, should be the same a low voltage reading say's there is possibly high resistance somewhere (switch or a bad earth connection)

Passenger rear window wont roll up or down


Try the switch in the door, as well as the one in the center console to eliminate the possibility of a bad switch. If the switch in the door, and the one in the center console both do not work -- then you probably have a bad window motor.

Eletcric windows diagram


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. If you have a lockout switch it may be faulty.

I have a galant 2001 and the passenger window wont work. It was working great and then stop and then started working again and now its just dead. Any idea what it might be?


It can be the switch or the motor, as long as it is getting power. If the switch at the door goes bad, the master switch may also not work, even though it still may be good, and vise versa. The switch goes bad more often then the motor. When the motor and track assembly go bad, you can usually hear the motor turning, but the window doesn't go up and down. Since you mentioned that it worked and stopped and worked again, though it still could be the motor, I would start with the switches. You can buy them on eBay for about half the cost you would pay at the dealer. If you have someone that can check things out a little, I would have then check for power to the motor and both switches. You can usually substitute a switch from another door to eliminate the possibility that that switch is bad. Hope this help. Good luck and have a nice evening. Peter

I suggest replacing the switch on the passenger side. Chances are the switch is faulty by a back connection inside - switch is wore out - if it works every now and then.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

It is most likely the switch - this part will be a little cheaper than the motor, so I suggest starting with that first. Then, if that doesn't work, replace the motor.

Low/no power to passenger window.


More than likely you have a bad switch. You can try to pry the switch apart and clean the contacts inside. Usually the passenger side switch is pretty inexpensive, around $25-$35. The switches get dirty inside from dirt or water dripping when it rains and the window is opened or if someone might have spilled something on it.
