Improper installation could have caused the replacements to fail if the limit switches that prevent the motor from operating when totally closed or opened may not be adjusted right. Once the pane is run against the ends of its travel, the motor could draw a ton of power which would cause it to heat very quickly. Those motors are made as cheaply as possible and probably are not designed as larger ones that are now almost all thermally protected.

1998 olds intrigue drivers door power windows cable broke i need to know how to recable it for it to work

this is a common problem on late 90s GMs. what you need is a new regulator. buy one on ebay and pay a glass shop to install it. Ten years is about all you can expect out of the motor so just go ahead and do the whole thing. labor to swap the regulator is much cheaper than to try and fix the regulator.

My driver side window will not roll back up

You need to remove the door panel and make sure you are geting power to the window motor.The best way to do this is to use a test light and loop the test light in the window motor connector with it unplugged from the motor and work the switch up and down.If the test light lights up in both directions the motor needs to be replaced.You should also inspect the regulator for damage.If the test light does not light in one or either direction you may have a bad switch.

1998 olds intrigue - Rear power windows do not work. What checks can I make to determine if it the switch or the motor or wiring problem?

If both windows don't work, it may just be a blown fuse.

There is a fusebox on the interior of the passenger the passenger door all the way up, and look at the side of the console panel, between the glovebox and the door. There should be a "finger hole" for you to pull open. It may be VERY hard to get open. Here you will find the smaller fuses. A diagram of the contents are on the inside of both lids.
