i have same problem with windows but massive electrical shorts and i keep spending money and no body can find short. maunly front panel, have to be jumped to drive, battery and alternator are good, heat barely works, i believe heater core needs blown outand cleaned, flushed radiator and it was disgusting. but i am a disabled single mom of 3 a person helping me is getting fed up and wants me to buy battery, and i REALLY think its electrical. also lights don't work correctly, right rear turn signal out. car seems to be possesd like carrie, but engine is excellentcondition. PLEASE email me the information of electrical wires and any advice. i don't know a lot about cars, but must use friends as mechanics due to my limited finances. so i have to have a chart of wiring and cant find one. thank you so much. its getting cold here. And i have heart condition and cant walk and carry loads of groceries in extreme temperatures. ty again :)

When I bought the car the all the Windows began to periodically stop working and then they like work. Then it started happening more often until finally none of them work. The sunroof still works so I don't believe it's the relay. What could be the issue?

Windows on both driver and passenger side would get 'stuck' in the down position. When it first began, I could hear the mechanism straining, but no longer. Eventually, after many tries, shutting the engine off and starting again, it would go up. I don't gamble with it because one day soon it will just get stuck down. Now the sunroof gets stuck open so once it closed again for me, I haven't used it since. Still trying to find the source of this problem to fix.

All power windows,heated seats, and power seats stopped at the same what do i do
Multiple times; multiple Buick models I have owned.
the rain drips on the switches so get the aftermarket "shades" for the windows. Once they dry out they should be fine, mine were.

Still not fixed but I was told that it was a bad ground wire. The Windows work when they want to.

90 Regal Custom, 2 door. Driver's side front window stopped working. First it would get stuck halfway open & pressing the switch just made a loud clicking or grinding sound. For a while I was able to manually close the window by pulling up on glass while pressing the switch. Eventually switch stopped working completely & window was stuck closed. Replacing window motor solved the problem. Has been fine now for almost 10 years.
