I have 3 windows that will not go up or down although the drivers side works fine

The three passenger windows quit working. They wouldn't stay up either. Evidently there is some kind of cable something or other in it, and that came apart and got all knurled up in there. I don't know cuz its my x's car and I never took the panel off to look at it. But anyway, the driver window is fine, the other 3 are not working and one has a wedge holding it up.

The rear window on driver's side will not go up or down. We are taking it in to be fixed today, June 24, 2014. This car has been driven very little.

Both back windows will not stay up. Its like the windows are not on a track. I also have airbag issues. The drivers side airbag sensor went off on a hot day and then it split my dashboard. I have an inch split that is about 18 inches long at the seam on my dash.

At first the drivers side switch only rolled the window down, but not up. Then Passenger side window was working when just the passenger did it. Now, it won't work at all and it seems like the passenger back is starting to have the same problem. Both drivers side windows work fine.

Three of the four window regulators failed. Metal wire broke on all three. 50-70 dollar part. Paid dealer $500 to replace the first one. Did the second one myself and it took 1 hour 30 minutes, only 15 minutes to replace the third one. Found a great instructional video on youtube.

The tracking systems in all four of my windows have broken. Hence, I have replaced all but 1 of the window tracking system. Mechanice said it was because the parts were plastic. Replaced them with metal parts. Wish GM had put in metal parts in the first place and saved me $1500 ($500/window - parts + labor)
