You may be having problems with the motor drawing too many amps and kicking out a circuit breaker. If this is the case, you will have to replace the window motor.Check the window switch too.It can also be the cause of window not working.You can check both the window as well as switch with voltmeter or a test light to confirm which part is faulty. The window motor is a 12 volt electrical part.So check for the 12 volt to the motor connections.If the voltage is low then its faulty motor and has to be replaced. ------------- Also in your question comment you have mentioned that driver side window motor not functioning.So in that case before going for new replacement motor,i suggest to connect the passenger side motor to driver side motor connections and check.If the window functions with passenger side motor connected then its a faulty driver-side motor,but if the window not working with passenger side motor connected , then its not the faulty motor but the faulty driver side window operating switch.It has to be replaced.But in some cases it has also seen that parts like motor as well as switch are ok but the problem relates to short in wiring or the wires getting loose between switch to regulator or switch to motor.So confirm this possibilities also before going for any kind of part replacements. --------------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

I replaced the driver's side window motor because


I don't know everything there is to know about window motors, but I have seen this before, both mine went out at the same time, not together but a couple weeks apart, like they were dated. Anyway, I replaced both motors, then both operators. Now they both work fine. I would hang on to the old motor, you never know, it might be good, You might have a bad switch on the door, I had to take my switches apart on my other truck and clean the contacts, got both motors working again, Hope this helps.

The drivers side window auto up/down quit


1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

The drivers side window stoped working on my 2004 silverado the passenger side works fine


Try the fuse. The switch may be faulty so check by removing the inner door panel and connecting a 12v battery via two wires to the motor that winds the window up and down. If it goes up and down it's probably the switch which may just need a clean on the terminals.
