Question about 1994 Buick LeSabre

3 Answers

The power windows will sporadically work. Now, the driver's side window is stuck in the down position and I can't get it up. The other windows will not work, either, although they are in the up position.

    all windows but drivers side window front work with their switch on their door. none of the switches work from the master switch . the door lock works fine 1991 buick century

  • buickowner Aug 02, 2008

    same problem here

    the master switches that control the four windows (including the drivers side) seems dead (thought the adjoining door lock switch works for controlling all the locks) and alll three other windows work by useing the power switches on each door.  my question is could it be fixed by just replaceing the whole relay system in the drivers door?
    many thanks
    great to see i'm not alone.

In my case, the wire in the driver's side door joint had broken completely apart. It was only working sporadically until the wire came completely apart. I cut open the plastic covering on the wire harness with scissors, and sure enough there was the broken wire. Reason it affected both windows was apparently the way it comes from power source.  Since it's a rather thick wire, the motion of opening and closing the door over years of use broke the wire. I did a simple strip and crimp and all is good now. Just that simple!
Apparently this commonly happens, as per advice from an experienced mechanic. 
good luck!

There is a module at the bottom of the door near the rear this module can go bad you can take your hand make a fist and hit/punch the bottom of the door pad not quite in the middle a little more towards the rear of the door pad then the window will work if this does it will still be intermittant but then you know you need to change the module

If all of windows have failed at the same time it will likely be a fuse that has blown. I suspect that the motor and/or mechanism for the driver's window may have worn to the point that it is creating high resistance that has blown the fuse.

My passenger window is stuck in

Not a fuse,Most likely a grounding issue with the switch or maybe switch needs replaced. This is a common problem with power windows and 9 times out of 10 it is in the one on the drivers side even though its the passenger window giving the problem...driver side controls all power supply....may be loose connection. Check that first...hope this helps and if so Please leave a rating on this post..

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down

Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Not a short, a shot is when a positive and negative wire touch, that blows a fuse, what you have is a problem with a component called the BODY CONTROL MODULE, you might say it is the central brain of all the electrical systems except the engine and transmission which have there own brain.

Drivers side power window

If your other windows work, then it is not a fuse. You may need to have your window motor replaced.
