Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Drivers window will not go up. When you depress the button to close you can hear the motor. So I don't believe it is electrical.

If you can hear the motor trying to work, you have a glide problem,, or,, your motor isn't totally engaging ,, check for 12 full volts at the motor when you push the switch, if you have the full 12,, your motor is worn,, sometimes you can drop the cover, and clean the brushes for a quick fix

Drivers side window wont roll up or down


If you can hear the motor when you try to operate the window then it'll be a problem with your window regulator (the mechanism that moves the window up an down), if you can't hear the motor then It's more likely to be a fault with the motor as you said it wouldn't work with the central locking. This means your car has a total closure system, ie you press a button and all windows and sunroof close. These systems are usually seperate wiring from the switched circuit used to operate the windows from inside the car, so, if the windows don't work on either circuit then the one thing they do have in common is the motor.

Window regulator is bad in the drivers door . Do you know what a regulator is ? The Trainer 24 Power Window Troubleshooting Do you know anything about automotive electrical testing ? How to read an use a wiring diagram ? Do you know there are two side to a electrical circuit ? B+ voltage an a ground side . Plus there is electronic control modules and class 2 serial data network involved . When you push the switch for a window othen then drivers window on the drivers door . a class 2 message is sent to the other doors modules . The correct module will then open it's window .

You wouldn't have a blown fuse if you can hear the relay

Have you not checked the fuses before asking a question?

Relays don't fail a lot & you hear what may be a relay,
although maybe not for the window circuit.

How would someone one the internet know what your
problem was,without at least being next to your truck?

I would say you have a bad switch,as that is what is used
the most. If not then the motor or a jammed window regulator.

before you change the window motor check to see if you are getting power to the motor frist it could just need a new window

2004 VW Beetle Convertible. Drivers door window could not go down yesterday because of ice. The window still works but it does not perform it's drop down and going up as it should when door is opened and...


can you hear the motor trying to work the window? A fairly common problem is the window regulator breaks. this is the cable operated lifting mechanism that raises the window, when it breaks you can hear the motor winding away, accompanied by a faint clunking noise as the motor tries to operate the mechanism. They are quite difficult to replace.
if you cannot hear the motor working (also assuming all your other windows do work) then either to motor is faulty or there is no power to the motor. the wiring inside the rubber boot that goes from the car to the door (by the door hinges) is prone to breaking due to the constant flexing back and fourth as the door is opened and closed. switches can also fail, you may be able to swap the drivers/passengers switches around if they are identical for testing.

The drivers side window auto up/down quit


1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

Hard to believe the fix I have for you but it worked for us and totally surprised us too. We have a 1997 Mercury Sable, power everything and the drivers side window would not go up but all other windows worked fine. I called a car place to see about how much it would cost to fix and he told me to do this......sit in car with car on and have the door open to the window that won't go up, now hold the button in the UP position on the window and slam the door(even might have to have someone slam it for you)....when we did this the window went straight up perfectly and worked fine afterward and for 2 years. So please try it. The guy told us it would work on any power windows in any car because it just jumps the bad part or place in the window thingy lol.....good luck.

Drivers side window doesn't work.


This could be caused by a couple of different things. First off, when you depress the switch for the driver side window do you hear any kind of noise at all? If you are hearing a noise but it sounds like it's moving very easy, it could be the gear on the motor or the window is off track. If you are not hearing any noise at all, it may be the motor is out and will need to be replaced. These can be purchased from most auto parts store or your local chevrolet dealer parts department. The switch panel typically is held on by screws coming from underneath. You will most likely need to remove the door panel and unscrew the switch panel from the door panel once the door panel is removed from the door. While you have the panel off, you can look inside the door and make sure the motor is plugged in and also test to see if the motor is coming on when the button is depressed or if it is binded up you can hear that also.

Rear driver side power window will not work


I'm guessing you've removed the door panel since you said you removed the switch. but just in case...you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.It sounds like the motor may have died you on if you cannot hear it...it could also be the regulator or linkage has broken
