Question about 2000 Saturn L-Series

Open Question

2000 Saturn LS1, rear passenger window will not raise all the way up. The motor sounded real sluggish just prior to quitting. Is there a way to manually raise it up until I can get it to a shop for repairs?

SOURCE: Saturn LS1 2000 - driver side window locked down unable to close.

It's the switch.
Put your fingers into the leather shifter boot at the base and feel under the rim to pop the outside ring that holds the faux wood trim at the base of the boot up and out. (The piece is faux wood on an LS2, it may just be colored plastic on an LS1) You may need to do this twice, on each side of the boot, so that the entire piece of trim and the boot pops up and out. The leather boot should still be connected to the trim, it will pop out as a unit.
Once it is out, you can reach into the housing and feel the window switch unit from inside the housing. There is a spring clip on the upper and lower ends of the switch unit, press in the spring clip and pop it up one end at a time. The unit is now out but still attached to the power. I have never unclipped the wire harness but it looks easily doable.
IF YOU ARE REMOVING THIS BECAUSE THE SWITCH IS STICKY you probably DON'T need a new switch - you can spray some contact cleaner in the ports at the side of the unit and underneath the switch, this will probably fix your problem, at least if you have ever spilled a soda anywhere near the switch.

Look on the passenger side on the shift console, near the front passenger's left ankle. There is a plastic cover with fuses and relays behind it. Keep me posted as to your progress, good luck

The fuel pump is located at the fuel tank and the plugs are located in the top of the engine block.  you will see four identical wires going into the top of the block.  If you pull those out carefully you will see the spark plugs inside.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: 2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery lite

the alternator has a circuit in it that illuminates the battery light on the dash.that circuit is most likely at fault but because the battery went dead once i would think your alternator is just about at the end of it's useful life.

SOURCE: 2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery light

the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off

Driver side windows will not operate in the front or back. Passenger side windows do operate.

It sounds like you have a switch problem in your door panel.if you can raise the window in the rear with the switch but not from the front then suspect the switch in your drivers door panel. If neither window will open with the switch in either door panel, still check your drivers door panel may try running power to the motor by itself with a jumper wire from a known 12v lead from the battery if you can and see if the windows will raise and lower without using the switch.

No air blowing in 2000 saturn ls1

Sounds to me like you have a loose connection to your blower motor. Start by checking the fuse to this and make sure it is seated properly, not rusted or broken. Next, look under the passenger side of yoru dash and see if you can see the wire that connects to your blower motor and make sure it is connnected securely.

2004 mitsubishi endeavor passenger rear window off track

Yea its actully quite simple, but expensive. The regulator needs to be replaced. I have already replaced my right rear, but I think my driver side is going out also, sounds like it anyway.
Thank God I bought a third party warrnty and they took care of everything. Zurich is the name of the company. I purchased the one with no deductible. Anyway I wish I had a better solution-but its awful hard to do your self.
