2000 Oldsmobile silhouette drivers window having trouble going up and down.

Asked by May 22, 2013 at 01:17 PM about the 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the window switch. This didn't fix the problem.  Took it in to get repaired.  The mechanics found a broken wire and repaired it.  Window quit working again in 3 weeks (only would go down).  I replaced the window motor.  Window worked great for a few minutes then the gremlin came out again.  When the window goes up and closes tight, it goes right down.  It goes up and stops.  To get it going again, I have to turn the car off and turn it back on to get the window moving again.  Any ideas?

1 Answer

yes, the wire is getting pinched whenever you close the door....what else would cause this inflexion?....examine what moves when the door is being closed, could be a wire retainer is overlooked/unused mistakenly~
