Power windows not working properly 2000 Buick Century

The rear power windows would not return to the raised position. We manually returned the windows to the raised position and disconnected them about 6 months ago. Last week the drivers side window lowered either by an accidental touch or without a touch at all and continued to slowly lower without touch. The motor by sound was working but it did not raise the window. Upon inspection it is not holding in the raised position. It has been rigged up with a brace holding the window in a raised position. ANY IDEAS on how to repair this problem?

    The window lowers each time the key is turned to on. After 8 seconds the window can be raised, but not lowered until another restart is initiated.

Your need to replace the window door motor and regulators. I have had this same problem in my Buick with 3 of the door motors with regulators having to be replaced. The Buci dealership wanted $450 to fix them. But I bought them at Oreilley Auto Parts for $150 and it comes with a lifetime warranty which I like in case it happens again.Then I got a mechanic on the side to put it in for $50. So I saved some money.

Can the rear driverside window for a 2003 buick century fit in a 2000 buick century

I think so. There were very few changes year to year during the Century's last generation run, from 1997 to 2005.

I almost think the doors could interchange on those models, but don't take my word for that. Any salvage yard could tell you through their interchange database. One last point, I don't remember the year, but at some point GM began outsourcing parts from Chinese manufacturers, including power window motors, and most people think the quality went downhill. Not trying to interject politics, just urging care considering costs.

Where is power window relay located 2001 buick regal

There is no relay for power windows !
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
Driver window switch

Front Passenger window switch

Left Rear window switch

Right Rear window switch

Window regulator motors in each of the doors


When the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACCY position, or Retained Accessory Power (RAP) is enabled and the lockout switch is disengaged, battery positive voltage will be available at the passenger window switches. When an individual window switch is pressed in the down position, battery positive voltage is applied to the window regulator motor causing that window to open. When the individual window switch is pressed in the up position, voltage is applied to the window regulator motor in the opposite direction causing that window to close. The return path to ground is supplied through the inactive control circuit being normally grounded through the driver window switch.

The Driver side window on my 2000 Buick Park Avenue will not go all the way up. It started making this strange noise when I would lower and raise the window, but now it is stuck in the midway position. ...

Would have to experience window problem myself, but sounds like you may need a new power window motor and/or window sash "peanut". (must remove door to fix this problem) 45 min. job for exp. tech. Good luck,best regards.

'92 Buick Century s/w -- Both front power windows will lower, but will not raise. Rear windows work OK. What is my most likely problem? Thanks!

find front window regulators for your car, buy them and pay a glass shop to install them. stay away from dealer, you can buy regulators at parts stores and eBay. 10 years is about it for a regulator, do not buy used.
