Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

Open Question

Rear driver window will not roll up

The rear driver window will roll down but not up. If left to itself it'll fall down slowly while driving. The motor sounds like it is trying to push it up and I can feel the cable behind the runner moving up but the window doesn't go up but can be rolled down with no problem.

What is the solution and do I need to buy the whole kit including the motor or just the runner etc..?

SOURCE: Power windows roll down slowly

You can try a dry lube or lithium grease on the slow ones, but it sounds more like you need new window motors. Unfortunately Saturns are plastic cars, and... The window motors are not too difficult to change and it requires removing the outer door panel to make it easier to access.

Yes. Check out eBay. For roughly 60.00 you should be able to get the whole new assembly.

SOURCE: power window rolls up very slowly, and sometimes

The electric motor and cable assembly needs replacement. This is a very common issue with electric windows. The trick is to always keep the rubber channels clean and silicon lubricated.

Window rolls down by itself and when I start the car. What could be the problem?


Drivers front or rear?

If its the drivers front window the master window switch is the problem. If its one of the other three windows its going to be a little trickier to figure out if you need to replace the individual switch at the door or the master switch.

If its the drivers side rear you can hit the window lockout button on the master switch. If the window stops rolling than its pretty safe to assume the switch on the drivers rear door is bad. If it still rolls down with the lockout on than its a pretty safe bet the master switch is the likely problem.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch


If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

1988 town car rear windows go down wont go up


Seems like you need window motors. When you flip the switch to roll them down, the window basically "falls" down slowly, but when rolling them back up, the motors aren't strong enough anymore to slide the heavy window back into place. Unfortunately that is usually the only solution when it comes to power windows. Your switch could be bad, but if you tried all switches in the car it is definitely your motors.

The passenger rear window won't roll up or down from the drivers controle it clicks in the passenger front door. it will roll down in the passenger rear door but not up. the window modulator rolls up and...


I have the exact same problem on a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004. The rear passenger window rolls down only from the rear passenger window and won't go up or down from the front. It has to be in the wiring because the problem was intermittent initially and a new window motor does the exact same thing. If you figured it out or have the wiring diagram please let me know.

Drivers window will go down but not up


It may be that it is not on the track properly or your power window motor is old and tierd and can take the window down but it doesn't have the juice in it any more to bring it back up. replace the motor and it will work. This problem happened to me in my '76 ford ltd and a new motor fixed it.

Divers window won't roll up my Camry


No won't be fuse. My guess is there is something faulty with the main controller. You could probably verify this by trying the switch on right rear passenger door. If it works there then the problem is at the main controller in the driver door. Could be a loose wire or the switch itself is broken.

2001 Saab 95 se driver/passenger windows.


A car I owned the left rear window did that. I could pull it up by taking a hold of it while another person held the switch. They told me the problem was the track was made out of plastic and it had broken. They had to replace the track. Yes it was expensive to repair but is ok now.
