Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Buick Century. My windows will not go up or down. I checked my fuses and that seems fine, but my window control console on my driver side door was broken and I think it is stuck in the lock position. I went to my local auto parts store and they have the door window controller, but they are asking 65.00 bucks for the part and if I bye it I won't be able to return it. Is there anything I should check before I purchase the door controller for the windows? Thank you

You might be able to get that switch really cheap at a junk yard, there's a chance you might have to buy more than one to find one that works (if you pull the part yourself you may get it cheaper, but make sure to avoid cars with door damage) but if they're cheap enough it might be worth a try. The down side is you probably won't be able to return a non-working switch at a junk yard either.

All 4 window wont go up or down on my buick century. all windows stop working at the same time.

With all the windows quitting at once, start with checking the fuse. Some cars list a specific fuse location but there are other fuse locations that state " fuse # controls windows, *********other components. If the fuses are good make sure the relay for the windows are good.
