SOURCE: driver side power window controls

I was told its a common defect...just by the way it was made. I took the passanger panel control off and put it on the driver side and it worked...the other dude is right 200-300 at a dealer. I saw one on ebay for 110.00 so im gonna go that route.

SOURCE: 99 chevy blazer lt front passenger window will not

Hi: If other windows work then it can't be FUSE. I would take off the door panel and use a 12 volt test light to see if power is getting to the front passenger door motor (make sure power control switches are attached, key on position). If power... then hot wire the window motor using a 12 volt battery to see if it works. Hook + and - wires from battery directly to the motor, reverse them to make motor go up or down. To remove door panel pop electrical control up for the front and lift out then disconnect plugs. Use 7 MM socket to remove 2 screws under where handle is located. A Phillips screw driver removes the door handle cover. Pull on door panel to pop off, whole process takes under 5 minutes. If motor works and no power to motor from drivers door then there is a broken wire in circuit or the drivers control unit is not working. NEXT... disconnect drivers door control unit and check to see which brass terminals have power (key on position), note them... then put 12 volt power from battery to a terminal from plug that was attached to the passenger door motor, using your test light check drivers door plug to see if there is power to any terminals you DID NOT MARK as having power, if power then you know the circuit is good, do this with both wires from passenger door motor plug. (A circuit tester can be used as well). If continuity then the problem is in the drivers door control unit. If no continuity then a break in the wires to the passenger door, breaks usually occur between the body A pillar and where the wires go to the door as it flexes there every time the door opens or closes. Hope this helps, rate so I know if it is worth my while helping out on here.. thanks...

If it does not make any noise, or sound like its getting any power, most likely its the switch.

SOURCE: door locks and power window

Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

"any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums

How to fix 2006 chevy malibu power windows


I would check for a broken wire inside the flex boot from the body to the drivers door . B+ or a ground wire . The front passenger window has it's own power supply . The right & left rear window switches power through the driver master switch .
With the driver door open move the flex boot an try opening an closing windows ? Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model , engine size . Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on power windows . Click the search button then the blue link . Check out some video's on youtube. on wire repair .

2004 chevy classic power windows front passenger


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.

other windows work, sliding doors work as does rear hatchback.
