Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Jimmy with power windows. The front

I have a 1998 Jimmy with power windows. The front driver's side window will not go up. Is there any way to manually get the window up if the motor is not working. It is supposed to rain tonight and I need help. I did have the door panel off and the motor is hot to the touch. The other three windows work fine.

    The suggestion was fine but did not answer my question. Is there ANY way to put the power window up manually so that I do not have to put plastic over my window until I can get it fixed.

The motor is shot,without removing the motor from the regulator,you can not move the window,If it will go down,you may try pushing down and push the button down,and get it to move down,then pull up on the window and push the button up.

    Those instructions are great but I need to know how to get the window up tonight or if it is even possible. I do not have time to test the motor etc tonight but need to know how to get the window up without the switch/motor working.

    Can someone answer my question - is it possible to put the power window up manually so that I can drive the vehicle without plastic taped to the window until I can get it fixed.

1998 olds cutlass driver side window switches dont work except for the switch that controls the passenger side front door window that works but all others dont work, would that mean need a new switch or...


Do the individual door switches work their windows? If so, it would be the driver's side door switch, the master switch, that is bad.
The fact that one window works off the driver switch means that power for the windows is at least getting to the master switch, and that the ground for all power windows is good. If the other door switches work, it is just the master switch, not a wiring problem.

The front side driver's window won't roll up.


you shoud replace the window winder motor/assembly. the cable from the motor has likely broken loose from the asembly bracket. this can sometimes be repaired, but any professional mechanic would just replace the whole assembly. fixing the assembly is somewhat of a jimmy-rig, and it doesnt always last very long.

Power window switchs on 1996 gmc jimmy


Inspect or replace the window lock and unlock switch on the drivers door power window switch. There is a lock and unlock switch that will disable the switches to the other power window in the Jimmy. Check to make sure that switch is in the unlock position to have the other power window switch to work.
Thank you for suing fixya and good luck.

If you have a multimeter you can go to the underside of the master panel in the drivers door and independently check the switches for voltage or with no power to the switch assembly check for continuity. Good place to start. If you get continuity to through the switch then you need to check power to the window actuators in the doors.
