Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille

The driver side window button does not roll the window up or down, but the other windows work fine. Could the problem be in the button or the motor?

Its the window switch. I stopped getting "clicking" action on my driver side/driver window button, so I switched it with one from a back window (meaning I couldnt roll down the back one from the driver side control anymore. This was temporary. I went to the junk yard and of 12 98/99 devilles, all of them had the switch pulled already. It is a pretty common problem I guess. New aftermarket cost around $80. All you need is a screwdriver to get at it, plug in the new one and you are fine.

SOURCE: 98 corolla drivers side window won't roll down or up well

I respectfully disagree.

WD-40 contains volatile ketones that will damage the rubber.
Pure silicone spray is the ticket here.

What you have going wrong is a bad "positive temperature coefficient thermister" in the window motor. It cannot be replaced, it is part of the motor assembly. You are going to probably need to replace the motor in the near future. The PTC understands a slight overheat condition, and when the motor "drags", or goes slow, the PTC opens up like a circuit breaker. Then, after it cools off, it closes, and the motor works again.

Lube the rubbers with silicone, and consider replacing the motor.

Drivers window goes down but not up


The motor and fuse is good - the likely culprit is a bad contact in the switch when you attempt to activate the up position.

I would replace the switch for that window.

Sounds like you need a window motor. Try hitting in center of door trim panel to see if you can get it to work if so replace motor.

97 Accord drivers side window won't go up or down....


Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.
