Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2 the passenger window won't roll all the way up it will move down. I used to be able to fiddle with the center console switch and it would eventually go up. Not any more. Which makes me think it could be the switch itself since the motor still powers the window down. I've been out of work and a quick inexpensive fix would be appreciated. It is cold out here. Thanks Todd

Scrub out the window channel with plenty of washing up liquid. Some mechanisms will not lift a window against concerted resistance as a safety measure to fingers etc. being removed (ouch!) If the window still refuses to rise and you can hear the motor running it is likely that you have worn or stripped the initial teeth on the window regulator mechanism. If the window rises only after you have pulled it up a couple of inches this would also indicate the fault with the regulator mechanism, you may also have to remove the inner panel to confirm this. If so replace the regulator and ensure the first 12 teeth are liberally lubricated with grease.

I have a 99 saturn sl2 and juss my driver window wont go down or up.

You would check the wires going to the motor at the switch, or at the motor, for power and ground.
The switch reverses power and ground for up and down.
So one wire going to the motor has power and the other has ground in one direction, and the opposite in the other direction.

Three of my windows will not roll down in my 1999 Saturn S series. Sometimes, they manage to roll down, but I then have to pull them back up because they won't roll back up. How much do you think it will...

I had this problem on my SL2 - there was a little plastic clip that was broken and I had to purchase the entire window assembly (or something like that it was called) because the plastic clip wasn't sold separately. I likely paid 300-400 total including the labor because it takes forever just to take apart the door and the part wasn't very cheap either.

Where is the fuse box?

It is on the passenger side of the center console, down by the floor. In the general area of where your left ankle would be, if you were sitting in the passenger seat. There is also another one under the hood, on the driver's side. It holds the larger fuses for things like your horn and headlights.

It sounds like there is somthing wrong with the window regulatior ( the motor in the door that moves the window)
1.Remove the inner door pannel (all parts)
2. hook up the window controls & try moving window up or down, make sure window is moving propley in tracks and siscor arms are not bound up.
3.If all is well with the above stuff, just replace the window regulatior and test befor you reasembil the door pannel
