Question about 2008 Chevrolet Malibu Classic
2004 chevy classic power windows front passenger window will go down but not up. rear passenger wil not work at all.
It sounds like the front window has a bad window switch. Removing the switch panel is usually not that difficult. Look for a pry slot usually located at the back of the panel. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver and pry up on the panel. The switch panel should come out of the door panel. Next, locate the wiring harness for that switch. The switch panel can be tested as follows :
1. Connect a test light to one side of the harness and operate the window.
2. Do the same thing for the other side of the harness.
If the light comes on in one direction but not in the other, then the most likely cause is a faulty switch panel. Perform the same procedure for the rear window. If it lights in both directions, then the most likely cause is a bad window motor. If that is what it appears to be, then I can tell you how to test the window motor before replacing. Just give me a response back if you need to. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

Passenger door module (PDM)
Body control module (BCM)
LR power window switch
RR power window switch
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
Window lockout switch
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)
Power Window System Controls
The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.
