Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 97 Buick Riviera and neither of the windows will go up or down. They are currently stuck half down. Could both motors in both doors go out at the same time? Or is there a fuse that's combined with something else? I dont see a fuse for this in my manual.

    everything else works. I cant find a fuse for the windows at all.

    It is the 97 2 door. I dont know where the window lock is. there is no noise when you try to roll the windows up or down. you cannot roll the windows up from the driver or passenger side.

    If its a 97 2 door Riviera their is a problem in the drivers window switch pack . Make sure the window lock is not on if it's not on remove the drivers switch ck for power and ground going into the pack if you have both and when you push the button you don't hear any noise at all coming from the window or inside the doors , replace the drivers window switch pack.

    i forgot to tell you if only the windows have stopped working and nothing else it's not a fuse or curcuit braker . if other thing have quit also ck all the fuse because some times the body control moduel can cause this but not that often have i seen this happen on an old modle 97 GM.

    their is no fuse power runs from the ingtion switch to the relay and then to the switch. For both the window to stop like that it's more then likely the switch is bad pull the switch out turn the key on and check for power on the red wire and the pink wire.

95 riviera drivers window wont go down

Could be a couple of things: the first two apply ONLY to POWER WINDOWS:
1-window switch went bad (not common but it happens)
2-window motor only works one direction (even more rare, but still has happened)
3-window regulator defective(power windows-maybe broken cable or mechanism; manual crank window regulator-broken mechanism.

If you have power windows:
Do you hear the motor running or binding when trying to roll window down? bad regulator
No noise? switch or motor

You need to remove your door panel to see and access the interior operating components. When you get that far you'll most likely see something obviously broken.

Then you'll need to examine the regulator and see if it has a broken cable or other binding parts.

Not a big deal to replace the window motor or regulator, but requires a little patience and manual dexterity.

Hope this helps.

How to free up a stuck parking brake pedal on a 97

Hello. Chances are this 12 year old cable is corroded. You can sometimes free them up using a product available at auto parts stores called WD-40. Spray it the length of the cable and let it sit overnight to do its magic. If after doing that two or three times, you have no success then replacing the parking brake cable would be in store. Regards, J.

Electric window failure

I have a 97 with the same problem for past 2+ years. There is a relay box in the panel which sends signal to the window motors. The relay is not available from dealer or auto parts stores. You will have to find one at a salvage yard.
