Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Window motors wont work , i 've already replace the motors on both sides, passenger side was working properly but when replacing driver side, both of them stop working. what do i do next?
You need to check the fuse, as well as the switch. Your going to need a wiring diagram of the window switch in the driver door, and a multi meter capable of checking voltage and ohms (resistance). You need to verify power to the switch, as well as off the switch, and to the motors. Make sure the switch is grounding. Many window motors are run off the driver switch where the other switches piggy back the driver switch and only working if the driver switch is sitting in a neutral position. You can always try changing the switch straight out. They can rust and corrode rather easily being located in the door being rained on, having drinks spilt on them, even if the driver gets in wet or sweaty.

The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.
