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.

When I turn off the car the driver-side window rolls down. Sometimes it will roll back up when I push the button and sometimes it will not. I have not found as solution as this problem just started.

My windows were having on and off problems. The problem was dirt in the switches. Used can air cleaner for computer keyboards. Problem was solved. Use it all the switches and the light switch (a common problem on Buicks)they do not stick anymore.

Same problem as everyone else. Replaced master switch with a used one and now two windows don't work. Can't afford to get a new one as it costs $118.00. Thought about going on-line to see what was available, now I'm not so sure now. I might just be buying another crappy one. Any thoughts?
