It is the switch. Just for kicks, swap the rear switches to see if it is in the rear switch, as the power from the master switch passes through the rear switch to the regulator.

My rear windows on my 2004 DHS do not come down


I have had to replace all of my window regulators in my '04 Deville. Can get them online for 40-60 bucks each, without the motor. It verify it is the regulator and not the motor, simply try to push the window down (without power). If it goes down (careful not to lower it completely), then push back up, and get online and order one. They are position specific, i.e. left drivers or right rear. The door panels are very simple to remove, but can be challenging to install. Check out youtube. There are some good video showing just how to get to it. It takes me about 20 minutes to do one.


Now if the problem is not the regulator, you can still easily remove the panel to gain access to the switches and their plugs. Use a volt meter to check for voltage. Also, as you stated "windows" will not go down, is this with just the drivers controls or each individual rear switch as well?

The most common problem on the '04 Deville is the regulators. Typical cheap junk design from GM, has a plastic connector to attach the regulating cables to. They simply break. Had they spent an additional nickel and used metal, thee would not be a problem. Good luck!

My 1997 Chrysler sebring jxi's rear passenger side window doesn't go up, down, or even make a noise when I hit the switch. Is it the regulator? Also how would I replace it if it is?


Start with the cheapest answer and work your way up.
That would mean checking the switches first. Will it work with the window switch nearest it (rear seat switch)? Will it work from the driver's door master switch? If the answer to both is "no", then it is likely the window motor. You can often replace just the motor or replace the window/regulator as a unit.
I would suggest you seek help for that, if you have no idea how to do and you do not have the service manual for the car. It can be complicated getting the old regulator out and removing the glass.

POWER WINDOWS NOT WORKING & POWER WINDOW/REGULATOR ISSUES


It can be issue with motor itself. If it's not going up, then how its working down. But still it feels like weak window motor or is issue with power window switch. Get the voltage tested at switch and motor. Also try another working window motor at not working window side.

Rear passanger side window won't go up or down


Window regulator most likely but before changing it out take the door panel off and apply current to the contacts of the actualy regulator. If the window goes up then switch the contacts and now it will go down. If nothing then regulator (window motor) is bad. If it works then your master control switch for all the windows is going bad.

SECTION 501-11: Glass, Frames and Mechanisms 2001 Explorer Sport/Sport-Trac Workshop Manual
GENERAL PROCEDURES Rear Window Motor Initialization s1r~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the power rear window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: This procedure must be carried out when repairs are performed on any part of the power rear window system including when: the power rear window motor is removed from the window regulator drum housing, a new power rear motor is installed, a new power rear window regulator is installed, a new power rear window module is installed, and any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the power rear window system.
NOTE: All power rear window components (window glass module, window regulator, window motor, and glass runs) must be installed and torqued to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: Steps 1-6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within five minutes.
NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.
NOTE: Steps 7 and 9 require that the power rear window control switch be held in the closed position until the power rear window motor stalls the window in the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the window control switch be momentarily turned to the open position.
  1. Start with the ignition in the OFF position.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
  1. Press the power rear window control switch vent button six times.
  1. Turn the ignition to the ON position. The power rear window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has entered initialized mode.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls in the upper header seal.
  1. Momentarily rotate the power rear window control switch to the open position and release. The power rear window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window stalls at the bottom of the travel stop designed into the window regulator.
  1. Rotate and hold the power rear window control switch to the closed position until the window stalls into the upper header seal. Once this operation is complete, the window will move up-down-up-down approximately 20 mm (0.8 in). This movement indicates that the power rear window motor has been successfully initialized.
  1. Verify correct operation of the power rear window by moving the window to the fully open, vent, then fully closed positions.

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine


Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.

93 4runner rear window motor slipping


disassemble, inspect gear drive on motor and regulator. Replace as necessary. When you say it slips. Im thinking you may mean it just doesn't want to move with any power. If its actually slipping. you have missing teeth on the gear or the regulator is damaged.
