It is an 18 year old car, meaning everything is entitled to wear out, including the window regulators.
the driver's window is almost always the first to go........go figure. buy a new regulator, not just the motor, take it to a glass shop and have them install it for you. parts stores and ebay are good places to get regulators cheaper than a dealer.

Driver side window stopped working


most of the time driver side windows switch be the first switch to wear out.try removing window switch work switch while moving the wires see if window try to go up, if yes, window switch broken.if switch not broken check see if power going to window motor when you work the switch you need a test light or digital volt meter to check to see if power going to power window motor.if power going to power window motor, either window binding or power window motor faulty. make sure driver side window master switch not locked out.if no make sure all the other power windows work if not you have blowed fuse.

Driver side window motor not going up or down


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.

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.

How to remove a driver side window switch


no. the drivers switch is the MASTER switch and not like the others. if the window goes up but not down, most likely the switch. get inside the car and open the door, as you are holing the window switch down, slam the door shut a few times, sometimes this will "jar" the window motor loose if it is stuck. if it works ok now, the window motor is jamming and will need replacement. another trick is to carefully watch the dome light as you are working the switch, if you push the switch down, and the dome light dims "slightly", the switch is good and the motor is stuck.

Windo motors wont work


The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.

Window switch for driver control and passenger switch window


sounds like you have a passenger window motor problem. Try hitting the right door panel hard, down near the speaker opening and pushing the switch at the same time. If it moves, the motor windings are and needs to be replaced.

2000 GMC Jimmy SLE driver's power window


The same thing happened to my 1999 JMC Jimmy recently. I believe the problem is that your power window motor has most likely gone out or is starting to go out. The motor will need replaced. They are pretty expensive new. I went to a junkyard and got one for around 15 dollars. When mine went bad, I had rolled my window down about three or four inches and it stuck there. I took my door panel off and tapped on the motor while holding up on the window switch and got it to go up after a few minutes. I am replacing my motor today, I'll leave an update here about the outcome when I finish the job. I hope this information helps you.
