Window goes down fine but won't go up
Sometimes the power windows, usually the driver side just won't go up. I haven't had it repaired, just a good thump to the switch area gets it going again.
Drivers side window switch started to gradually short out and eventually completely failed.
passenger window wont roll up
I just want to know how much will it cost for power steering and a alternator and both windows fix they dont go up or down motor out for both windows I wondering how much for parts and install
driver power window decided to go crooked on me and went up slow as molasses....was like this for 2 years....sometimes it wouldnt go back up for days.
Window goes down fine, but don't go up. This switch can only be replaced by another 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo switch
Had this issue with the driver-side power window switch. Had to be replaced.
window switch went bad found on amazon at a good price
Bought the car and was told driver door window didn't work but havnt figured out if it is the motor or switch. It's diffently not the fuse. Any idea witch one it is or how to fix it. Also sun roof makes clicking sound and won't pop up or slide open but motor tries
My driver's side power window regulator and motor has been replaced three, count them, three times ... working on fourth replacement as I type this.
I replaced the switch myself on drivers side. Easy repair! Save the money and do it yourself :)
Not fixed at this time yet
replaced motor
