Question about 1991 Pontiac Firebird

1 Answer

The electric window,on the passenger side, in my 91 Firebird is not going up or down. i tested for conductivity and the switch seems to be working. I think the motor is damaged (i know that the fuses are fine) how could I remove or replace the motor? Also i noticed broken glass in the bottom of the door, assuming that the window was replaced could it be hooked up incorrectly and how could i fix this? any ideas of other issues causing this problem?

The motor has two wires connecting to it. One for up and one for down. Run a test with a direct wire from the battery to check

The odds of both switches going bad at the same time is high, remove the door panel and tap on the window motor with a hammer, while trying the switches. I may have jammed up. Ground a test light and check the motor connection, while trying the switch, power will show on either side depending on if it turning up or down

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

2005 Dodge Durango passenger window wont go down from drivers side switch


It sounds like everything else and the wiring is okay, only that button on the driver's switch is not working. I would try a new switch, if you see nothing wrong with the electrical plug for it when you take it off.
If that down wire was broken somewhere from the driver switch to the passenger door, I don't think the driver's switch would work for it either way, up or down. And same, neither would the passenger switch work. I think the button for down is not making contact somehow, and right in the switch.

Looking for wiring diagram for 2001 Firebird power window. Driver side is down and won't go up. Passenger side works. I have power going to drivers side and not passenger side from the driver control...


You'll need to pull the door panel and check for power and ground at the 2 wire connector located near the window motor (there should be a dark blue wire and a brown wire). With a test light there should be power on one of the two wires at any time. If there is power on both wires with the switch in the up position than the switch is bad. If the only wire powered up in the up position is the dark blue wire than try tapping the motor while holding the switch in the up position. If it starts to work than the motor is bad.

On a side note check for power with all the connectors plugged in. You can also jump the connections at the motor. Supply a ground to the brown wire and supply power to the dark blue wire and the window should go up.

Passenger side window will only roll down from driver and passenger side controls,but does not roll up from either side.With an electrical tester,the power is showing on the motor side of the two prong...


Reverse your test light connector, connect it to power so you can check for ground at window motor, flip switch up or down should have ground at both wire's while flipping switch to up or down, more then likely your not going to have ground at the up position, do same test at harness before passenger door switch if no ground master switch bad.

Passenger window will not go up i think its


if the fuse was an issue then all the windows would be inop, not just one, the most common fault is the electric motor that runs the window up and down.

Electric window drivers side not working


If the switch on the passenger side works, it should not be the relay. These switches are usually the fault, and can be dissasembled carefully and contacts cleaned. Theyre not that expensive anyway if I remember last time.
Other things to consider are the wires coming into the drivers door. make sure that one of them is live, and if you ascertain which on is the live, which the ground/earth, and what is the window motor one, you should be able to test the wiring.

1995 pontiac firebird power windows will go up and down then stop


I've got one sitting outside right now with the same problem...Both motors are burned out. The motors are really low quality and can't push the window up the track unless everything is perfectly free (never happen on an older car). They run about $35 to $60 each depending upon what you buy. They are riveted to the door and need to be drilled to remove.
