My 2500HD duramax had a similar issue. Turned out to be a 50A fuse in the engine bay fuse box (one of the 50A fuses in the row closest to the center).

I'm not sure if you found the problem or not but I have an 07 Silverado that had the same problem. Driver control for Windows stopped working and a buddy of mine found a yellow wire going from the boot in the door to the fuse box that was broke along with a couple either wires. We think the wires are too small and from opening and closing the door it just snapped over time. We fixed the wires and now all the windows work fine. I hope this helps you because I know how crazy it can make you trying to figure it out.

Check the rubber boot that goes from the door to the frame. I will bet the yellow wire has a crack or break in it and that is your problem. It is a pain to find and get to but that is what worked for me.

2007 Silverado LTZ 4 door, Drivers side windows don''t work but passenger side windows work fine from the master switch even after replacement. Odd that I have 4.5 volts at the plug to the window motor when the switch is activated even with the new switch and 12 volts to the switch and the window lock-out does not stop the other switches from working although the LED illuminates that it is activated.

2008 Z71 1500 Silverado. Had all the same problems everyone is describing as well as my cruise control not working and the remote start nt working. I read on multiple forums that replacing the 175 amp master fuse, cleaning up and tightening the batter connections, and replacing the grounding wire fixed many problems. I did so and it stopped my charging outlets from blowing fuses everyday and allowed me to use one of the windows thay wasn't working. I'm still having problems with thw remote start and cruise control. I believe the wire going to to master window control and/or module still have to be replaced. Will update...

I have a 2010 Silverado 4 door. The driver side and right rear window worked fine. Both right side windows would go up but not down. After checking and surching for 8 hour, I finally check diver side master switches, took the switch apart, found it had sand in it from a trip we had made to the beach. Cleaned the contacts with a pencil eraser, now works fine

Even though I had 12 volts at the new window switch, I replaced the 25 amp circuit breaker that is BEHIND the fuse box at the drivers edge of the dashboard, the access requires taking off the knee-panel and using a flashlight to see the top of the 1" long silver case sticking out. When I plugged it in it started making a lot of chattering noise and was very hot to touch. I then replaced the Red w/White stripe wire from the door switch to the fuse box and all is working well now.

I just finished fixing the 'drivers door power window not working' problem on my '08 Sierra. As some have said, there were broken wires in the rubber boot between the cab and the door. In my case, the red and white power wire from the fuse panel to the door switch was broken. I also solved my 'power door lock not working in the drivers door' issue.....it too was a broken wire inside the rubber boot. It's definitely a PITA to fix......the whole harness is wrapped and needs to be cut open inside the boot in order to see and repair the problem. This truck has been a nightmare electrically. I had random starting problems a couple of years ago with all sorts of phantom warning lights on the dash and the door locks popping open and closed while driving. It turned out to be bad connections at the battery. I needed to replace the negative and positive battery connectors....the factory ones came loose between the wire and the lead post connector causing all sorts of problems. I'm definitely discouraged with these 'quality parts' issues.

My 2015 2500 diesel window doesn't work. What should I do?

2 people found this helpful.

Check the wires in the rubber boots between the door and the cab of the truck. That fixed my problem and by the looks of it fixed other people's problem as well. Once you find the broken wire and fix it you should be fine.

Hello I have a similar problem. passenger window is not working, i have changed almost everything including the switch (driver and passenger) and even the motor but still i can`t manage to make it work. i tested the cable that goes from the switch till the motor and there is continuity but no power. the only thing that i heard is a sort of a "click" that comes frome the switch, nothing more ... any ideas?

I have issues with power windows and the power mirror not working. It’s a 2006 Chevy Silverado LT Duramax 3500 4x4. Check all fuses. I see aluminum 25A CB LT DRS. Not sure how to check that. Please help bc of rainy elements. Right window at passenger will not roll up.

We have a 2008 chevy Silverado with rear passenger window stuck in the down position. my 17 yo son said his friend had same issue. He said to rev the engine while trying to roll it up. Did that and it rolled up! Obviously something electrical will be checking the wires, fuses, cables etc as others have described when I get some time tomorrow
