Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

2000 chevy truck power window problem. Window just started working on and off some days it would work and some it didn't. The other day I rolled it down and it wouldn't come back up. No nosie at all just like you unplugged it. I changed the motor and regulator, door switch and checked wires from the truck through the door back to my switch and motor and didn't see any wires that looked bad. This is the driver door and everthing else works fine from this switch. The pass window works from this switch, locks everything except the window in this door. What could this problem be?

Okay, the window circuit in your truck is different from most power window circuits, in that the master switch provides battery positive power to the driver's window and only provides grounds for the relays that control the passenger window. The master switch is probably not getting the battery power needed to operate the driver's window. Since both windows are supplied battery voltage from the same self-resetting breaker - and the passenger window works, then the breaker is good. The next step is to check for battery voltage at the DARK GREEN wire at the driver's door switch on pin "F". I'm not really a betting man, but I would wager that there is no power there. If you find that battery voltage is not present at the switch, the MOST LIKELY cause would be that the DARK GREEN wire is broken inside the umbilical between the body and the door. The proper way to fix this is to remove the wiring harness from the door and disassemble it to access the wires. This way, it can be put back as close as possible to original. Some mechanics are not willing go through all of this and will cut the umbilical. (Rubber protection sleeve) This can get your window to work, but leaves the wires exposed for future damage. I personally don't recommend this. It takes a lot more time and effort to do this correctly, but in the long-run it is worth it.

    P.S. It is also not necessary to check the ground circuit to the drivers window motor. The driver's switch provides ground to both windows through the same circuit and since the driver's switch will operate the passenger window, the ground circuit is also good.

well, the first thing is to check the fuses and or relay for power windows.should be listed in your owners manual. if ok, then remove switch from drivers side window and check for power. if power to the switch then use a jumper wire from power side to motor side of switch. if window works then its the switch causing the problem. Good-day!

My drivers side window wont roll down. Are there any fuses or small things i need to check? Dont want to order a new window motor if i dont have to. 2000 chevy blazer 2door

If the other window is working , I would take it apart first and check voltage at the motor plug and check the window regulator, this is the part that holds or attaches the motor. If these are good then I would get the motor. If you don't have power to the motor plug then work your way back to the switch.

Power window will not go down ! The window does not work not sure if it a fuse or the motor

Typically if the window motor was going out it would slowly fail. Starting with slow roll up and possible winding noise. I would recommend checking the fuse or switch because window motors on the newer chevy trucks are typically built tough. Hope that helps!

2002 Chevy trailblazer. No power to drivers door.

Most common problem is a broken wire between body and door. Pull the rubber boot back and see, easier to find if you know what colour the wire is that is not working.

Hi, My 2002 Chevy Cavaliers windows have started having trouble rolling up. It seems they roll down fine, it's just when you try to roll them up either the 'button' doesn't work at all or it works...

Try spraying silicone spray down the sides (felt) where window slides (guides) up & down. Put window all the way down, spray them well, top to bottom,then run window up & down a few times. May not cure it, but should help. Be generous with it, but a little clean up later may be needed.
