Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
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.

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.
