Currently none of my windows work in my Buick Century Limited. I have tried to replace the window motors, but this has failed to work as well. I am worried there might be some other kind of electrical issue going on. Anyone else have this problem?

I bought a used car, the power switch for the driver side failed, few days ago,it worked for 2 days but when I tried the third day, the window didn't get down. The other 3 windows are working properly. So what should I do to fix? Thanks

First my driver's side window failed. Had a mechanic replace the entire assembly. Worked for about 2 months, but during that time, both rear windows failed. Now all four windows have failed. I'm hesitant to spend the $800-$1000 to fix them all, after having the driver's side fail. Is it the assembly that is failing or some electrical issue we're missing.

My dad used to own this car, & he said his windows would get stuck up/down & roll up/down themselves. & all he had to do was clean the sensors under the buttons. Now, I own the car & for a year now, they would randomly get stuck & i'd let them sick for 5 minutes & they'd work fine. A month ago, it wouldn't roll up for a day. Now, they are stuck up completely. & My AC is shotty so I NEED my windows to work. Going to TRY to clean the senors after work.

windows only would go up and down sometimes at first. it got worse and worse and now they are stuck down I replaced the window switch once and it fixed the problem for a little while now the same thing junk they obviously need a recall on these.

all windows fail occasionally to operate, some appear now to be motor or regulator related but not sure how much of the problem is main switch, which is intermittent. i used to have respect for Buick
