Help! Have to restart car for window to roll down

Clay Anderson

Asked by Sep 30, 2015 at 04:05 PM about the 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes when I start my car, my passenger
window won't roll down. All others work fine. In
order to get it to work again, I have to turn my car
off, open the door and wait for all console lights to
go out, then start my car again.

What could this be?

4 Answers


sounds like window motor or regulator

Clay Anderson

Forgive my naivete, but why would restarting the car fix a problem like that?


the shake of the car when you restart it would complete a circuit that has shorted out

Clay Anderson

It won't work if I just turn it off and restart it real quick - the power to the dash, radio, etc has to be completely cut (accessory power).
