Question about 1992 Saturn SL2
I have a 2001 Saturn L200 and just had the same problem. Just finished
smoking a cig before driving into work and my passenger side window
would not go up and it was snowing!!!
After checking this website I quickly found out that this a fairly common defect with the Saturn brand! Since the window switches are located in the middle counsel, they tend to dirty very easy, especially if you smoke, eat, or spill a drink in your car.
Before you go too crazy and pull anything apart...the switch may just need a good cleaning!
You will need a(n).....
some small strips of duct tape and cover both screw drivers with tape
to protect against scratching the counsel and switch. There are two
metal clips under the north and south positions of the perimeter of the
switch. Take the small screwdriver and start at the top using small
prying movements until you see some give. Take the large screwdriver and
use it as a wedge. Continue carefully with the small prying movements
and then follow up with the large screw driver all the way around the
perimeter until the switch pops out.
Now use the large screwdriver to disconnect the switch from the electrical plug....while in there....check for dust, dirt, and sticky residue from drinks.....clean as needed! Next, examine the switch to see that it is operating correctly. **My car had pop spilled on the switch and was causing it to remain stuck in the down operation of the window!**
Disassemble the switch completely and you will see three pieces. Use the hot soapy water and q-tips and toothpicks to clean every piece good. Be careful to not use too much water on the circuit board you could cause permanent damage! Finally, use an air compressor to air blast each piece good until dry! At this point I was able to get the switch function properly again.
All you should have to do now is work backwards and reassemble the switch into the counsel. Test the operation of your passenger window. If this does not work then you will need a new or replacement switch.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
