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
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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

None of the power windows work properly. Sometimes there is a noise in the switch or motor when a switch is pressed.

The power windows work intermittently. The driver's side switch seems to be the issue, rather than the window motors. Either none of the windows work or they all work.
Front window started sticking then stopped other three followed now those last three stock half way down
None of my windows are coming down when i press the window down button i just hear a buzzing sound

Rear left window does not work
The drivers side front window rolls down slowly to where it barely rolls up or down and I have to continually push the power button for it to work

My driver side window in the front comes down by itself while I am driving and sometimes it will go back up and sometimes it won't. I haven't gotten the problem fixed yet because my finances are pretty low right now.

The driver side window goes down automatically when I start the car. Then I have to wait to roll it back up and then it will not go back down.
