Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
Due to the age of the vehicle being more than ten years old , I would suspect the window motor has stalled . This is usually caused by carbon deposits between the commutator and brush in the motor itself . The motor will probably have to be replaced . However , there is one quick fix you can try that might work to at least get the window up until you can have it replaced . With the ignition switch on and while powering the driver's door window switch control for the front passenger door as if you are trying to close the window on the passenger side , open the passenger door and slam it shut . Repeat this process a few times if necessary as it will possibly cause the brush to make better contact with the commutator allowing the motor to function . It is important that the switch is activated in the opposition and the key is in the on position for this to work as the contact will be brief but the electrical current will have a chance to complete the circuit and power the window motor .
