Open the rear door ,at the hinge you will find a rubber boot, pull the boot back and you will find that 1 or 2 of the wires have broken, repair with extra wiring to stop cable stretching.
hope this helps

2008 Colorado passenger window will go up and down with drivers control switch, but not using passenger side switch. Replaced switch on passenger side with no changes...


Lockout Switch Feature
The window lockout switch, when closed, provides power to the passenger door switches enabling normal window operation and when the lockout switch is open, power is cut to the passenger door switches disabling window operation. Normal window operation is still available from the driver master control.

2003 gmc envoy Windows fuse


Are all windows not working ? Two separate circuit breakers left & right . Both in rear fuse box . Fuse Block - Rear Beneath the left rear seat
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 have a unibody vehicle. After running it, the heat will make it move/stretch. Things don't quite align properly. Think about it like your house when the sun sets and you start hearing it creaking and popping. Or between winter and summer, when the doors or windows don't close the same. Same applies to vehicles.

Whistling sound coming from right rear


Checking Window Seals - The window seals (weather stripping) in your car are used to seal the water and wind for entering the passenger compartment. When these seals fail from damage or are eroded by the weather they can allow wind noise to enter the passenger compartment. This failure can cause a whistling noise as the car is driven. Some noises are only present when the vehicle is driven at certain speeds such as 55 MPH. These whistling noises can be difficult to find since you are driving at the time. Have a passenger help with the diagnosis by running their hand along the area the noise is being generated from. Once the noise source has been located replace or repair the failed seal and recheck.

Power windows, power moon roof and all internal light are not working


I think you have a bad GEM Generic Electronic Module. get from car-part.com page with asterisk is lowest price



The GEM constantly monitors the system and reports concerns in the form of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). The DTCs can be retrieved with the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent through the communication link. The NGS is a menu-driven tester, allowing the user to run specific diagnostic tests. The NGS can isolate faults in the GEM subsystems through a symptom-driven diagnostic procedure. Connecting the tester to the GEM communication link will NOT alert the GEM. If the GEM is "asleep" when the diagnostic connector is plugged in, the GEM must be "awakened." If the communication link cannot be established, it is advised to turn the ignition to RUN. NOTE: The GEM has a sleep function to minimize battery consumption. During the sleep mode, the GEM turns off all outputs and monitors only the following:
  • Door ajar (driver's door, passenger's door, liftgate, rear right and rear left doors)
  • Key in ignition
  • Key in RUN or ACCY
  • Door handles (driver's or passenger's)
  • Two-step unlock switch
  • Neutral safety switch
  • Illuminated entry request — RAP module
If a change of status occurs at one of these inputs while the GEM is asleep, the GEM will "wake up." When the GEM awakens, it performs an internal self test, and begins normal operation. At this point, the GEM will have all of its functions operational. The GEM will go into the sleep mode immediately after both of the following conditions have been met:
  • Key in OFF or key not in ignition
  • After 45 minutes with no change on any wake-up input
The GEM control system has two modes of operation, the normal operating mode and tester dependent diagnostics mode. The normal operation of the GEM can detect errors. An integral part of the normal GEM operation is the continuous diagnostics capability. Continuous diagnostics detects errors and changes the GEM control strategy. There is no warning light for the GEM; therefore, a DTC concern will direct you to the GEM. Examples of faults that may be detected during normal operation include:
  • GEM continuous self test (RAM, ROM, EEPROM, A/D checking)
  • Output driver monitoring (open circuit/short to GND, short to battery) NOTE: The GEM can only detect open circuit/short to GND faults when the GEM is not energizing a load, and short to battery faults when the GEM is attempting to energize a load.
  • Illogical combinations of input signals
A description of the subsystems controlled by the GEM follows.

Courtesy Lamps
The GEM illuminates the interior courtesy lamps when any door is set ajar or is opened. The following are inputs used for controlling the courtesy lamps:
  • All door ajar switches (including liftgate)
  • Door handle switches
  • Illuminated entry request with RAP module
  • Two-step unlock door disarm switches.
All interior courtesy lamps are turned off when any of the following occurs:
  • 25 seconds have elapsed after all the doors are closed.
  • The ignition switch is turned to RUN.
  • Vehicle speed is over 8 km/h (5 mph).
  • A power door lock command is received before the five seconds have elapsed.
One-Touch Window
When the power switch for driver's window control is held down (between 0.04 and 0.4 second) and then released with the ignition switch in RUN or ACC, the driver's window will automatically move to its full down position. Only the driver's window has this feature. Holding the driver's switch down longer allows the operator to stop the window as soon as the switch is released. The one-touch window feature can be enabled or disabled by the operator.
  1. Close both front doors .
  1. Key ON.
  1. Key OFF.
  1. Remove key from ignition switch .
  1. Press and hold the down window switch to enable/disable the one-touch window feature.
  1. Reinsert the key into the ignition switch within two seconds after pressing the down window switch.
  1. Continue to hold the switch until a two-second tone is heard.
  1. Release the switch while the tone is active.
  1. After the two-second tone, the following confirmation beep sequences will be heard:
    • One beep — feature disabled.
    • Two beeps — feature enabled.
    Repeat the procedure again to toggle back and forth.
Generic Electronic Control Module (GEM), Central Timer Module (CTM) Removal and Installation
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301) .
  1. Remove radio, refer to Section 15-01 .
  1. Remove radio bezel.
  1. Remove retaining screw.
  1. Slide GEM/CTM toward front of vehicle, off retaining tabs.
  1. Disconnect electrical connectors.

    NOTE: When the battery (10655) has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more to relearn the strategy.
    For installation, follow removal procedures in reverse order. Tighten retaining screw to 2.3-3.3 Nm (20.4-29.2 lb-in). NOTE: The automatic ride control switch must be turned to the OFF position when the vehicle is hoisted, jacked, towed, jump-started or raised off the ground to avoid unnecessary operation of the system and/or possible damage to its components.
