Thats what the $75.00 per hr is for. what happens when the button is pushed? noise? clunk? fuse blows? try turning the key to the ON position, and open the door, get inside, now while holding the door open, hold the window button down, now slam the door, maybe several times, this sometimes will jar it loose. watch the dome light when you push the button down. does it dim slightly? IF there is a short it takes time to find, and that what you pay for....time.

Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from body to doors.
Do you know about electronic control modules ?
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger door module (PDM)


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
LR power window switch


?€¢
RR power window switch


?€¢
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches


?€¢
Window lockout switch


?€¢
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)


?€¢
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)


?€¢
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)


The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.

You need a scan tool to diagnose these systems
Power Window Inoperative - Driver Door

Did you perform the Door Systems Diagnostic System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Door Systems

2

Operate the driver power window in the UP and DOWN directions.
Does the driver power window operate properly?
Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
Go to Step 3

3

  1. Install a scan tool.
  2. Monitor the driver window status data parameter in the driver door inputs list.
Does the driver window status data parameter display an active state?
Go to Step 11
Go to Step 4

4

  1. Monitor the driver window status data parameter in the driver door module inputs list.
  2. Activate the driver power window switch in the up and down positions.
Does the driver window status data parameter change accordingly?
Go to Step 5
The data link connector (DLC) allows a scan tool to communicate with the class 2 serial data line. The serial data line is the means by which the microprocessor-controlled modules in the vehicle communicate with each other. Once the scan tool is connected to the class 2 serial data line through the DLC, the scan tool can be used to monitor each module for diagnostic purposes and to check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Class 2 serial data is transmitted on a single wire at an average of 10.4 kbps.

I would think that if your vehicle has under the warranty miles coverage, that they should honor this. The electrical harness in your vehicle unless chewed by a varment, should be covered since you have not messed with the harness. The manufacturer is the one that put the harness together and installed it in your vehicle. Do not just lay down and let them walk on you.

My rear window will only go down not up


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.

Driver side passenger window will not go down


I had the same problem with both the front and rear driver's side windows. The dealer diagnosed a shorted motor in the rear and replaced it under warranty. Unfortunately, they weren't able to replicate the problem on the front window. I still have intermittent problems with it, but rapidly cycling the button (up-down-up-down) gets it working again.
