Any advise on how to fix my power window?


Asked by Nov 29, 2015 at 06:28 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My drivers side rear window does not work.  I replaced the regulator and that
did not fix the problem.  The drivers and rear passanger switches did not
activate the new regulator.  All my other windows work fine.  Any suggestions
on what to do next?

The switch may be bad.


I will try the master switch. Thanks


Before you just start replacing stuff use a test light to make sure you are getting power to the switch and window motor.

Firebird338 - I have never used one before but it sounds like that's the way to go first. Should I check the rear window switch wire harness and the front switch harness too?


Since all of the other windows work I would test power going to and coming from drivers side switch and window motor if there is power you have a bad window motor.


Thanks Firebird338. Time to buy a tester!! I will post the results once I get it done.


Thanks guys for the help. Bought a multi meter and got the rear switch to work, loose wire. Drivers switch has no continuity so buying s new switch. Thanks again.
