    All windows have a problem going back up, not down though. After resting, they go up. Discount Auto person thinks that the drivers side switch block is the problem. Still looking to fix...

    My 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera power windows, all 4 of them, do not work. All 4 of them stopped working at the same time. I checked the fuse which is OK. Any other ideas, and don't tell me it's a motor. If that is true, then I have 4 motors that went bad at the same time.

Power is not getting to the fuse box on my 1996 oldsmobile cutlass ciera

There is a fuseable link from the starter for some of the circuits, and everything that is controlled by the key switch gets power from there.
Are all of the circuits dead ?

My power windows stop working... The driver window doesn't come down but all the rest of the windows have to be let down on their own meaning I can't let them down from the driver's side... I would like to...

Either your motor is bad in the driver's side window, or the wire is broken. The fuse is located under the dash, in general, behind a removable door. There should be a listing of the fuses and their locations there, but if there isn't look on the actual fuse panel for power options like windows (like PW for Power Windows).

Good luck on fixing this poblem.

Driver side windows don`t work,don`t go up or down

Do you hear anything when you hit the button? If you don't hear a thing,
in either side, you may just have a blown fuse. Check the owners manual for the fuse diagram to check the power window fuse.

1995 Cutlass Ciera : Can check list to repairing power windows

the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor

My windows on my olds ciera does not go either up nor does it go down changed relay switch and it still does not work what do you think might be the problem. thanks

Try checking the fuse for the power windows, if its good the motor that moves the window up and down located inside the door could be bad.

The power windows do not work...the windows have a hard time going up and it a fuse or something.

I also had this problem, and it is a relatively easy fix if its the same as yours.
It would appear that the switch for the window in the door can get dirty over time, probably due to finicky door seals. The best way to deal with this is to take apart the door and clean out the switch.
As for lenedavis97, checking the fuses is a good place to start. These can be found in the glove box and most cutlasses have replacements provided.
