If you all have not already solved the problem here is my experience with the same probleem. If all windows began to work intermittently and you can control all from the drivers side door panel it is often that switch panel that has gone bad and needs replacing. You can generally find one at a salvage yard inexpensively- this is a relative term as comparedf to a new OEM switch mind you.If the problem is consistent with one door/window it is often that switch that has gone bad. If you are handy with a multimeter you can test the lead going to the motor to ensure that you see the same results on the multimeter as you do in real time connected to the motor. If there is no inconsistency it is possible but rather unlikely that the motor itself is at fault. Motors generally fail all out or within a very short period of time once displaying any symptoms.

1988 chevy suburban door panel how do you remove it

I have a 1988 GMC pickup,should be simular,my windows are power windows,the switches can be carfully removed ,(which will have to be done),by depressing clips holding them in carefully tilt them out.
remove wires noting where they go on switch .
remove two screws from arm rest, located underneath arm rest.if you have manual windows there is a wire like clip inserted into a slot in crank handle holding it on to the regulator shaft, you may be able to get it with a screwdriver, but you can get a tool from part store that works much better.
after that gently work around the door pannel with flat screwdriver poping the plastic retainers out of the door, be carefull not to rip them out of the pannel.
I hope this helps!

The electrical windowsof my chevy suburban do not work

Hello. If all of your windows are not working you will simply have to replace the fuse. If you end up with one window that will not go up and down any longer you will have to replace that power window assembly which includes the motor and the tracks that the window rides up and down on.
