Drivers side window working sporadically
Drivers side window goes on sporatically when pressing the automatic window button on console all other windows work fine what could it be .chevy equinox 2005
It's not the switch, its the driver side window motor itself. Like anything else thats mechanical, it wears out over time and the driver side window is always the most used in any vehicle.
Pull the door panel, then the motor, and clean the apature and the inside of the housing. Theres tons of shavings from the magnets built up in there. Itll run like a champ afterward. You might wanna do the frint passenger too while youre at it.
How do you recommend cleaning the motor housing?
My 2006 equinox had actually wedged in and broke the plastic tab that connects the window to The track so I took it apart and zip tied the window to the mount thinking the window would pull down it did not, broke 2 big zip ties at once. Bought a new track and after spending 45 min trying to get the window to drop I finally had to remove the side mirror which released it immediately, not sure why I hadn't removed the mirror sooner.at one point I thought someone had glued the window in. So after hours of painstaking trial and error I finally got it all back together and then cables it the right place so everything worked and back together it still wants to kick forward when rolled up. I removed the mirror and it does it with the mirror off so I don't know what now. I dread doing it over again but it's going to break the mount again if I don't figure something out. I don't think I have ever been so aggravated and frustrated on anything else I've ever worked on and I built airplanes for 20 years.
Good luck everyone
Your switch sounds like it's on it's way out. Start by changing out the window switch with one from another window. If that works, then the switch is likely your problem. If the problem persists, the you may have to change the window terminal block. One of these can be had at a junk yard but be sure to remove the harness back to any clip or plug. If you try to cut and splice that many wires it can lead to problems.
Most of the driver side window switches are multifunctional. They may need to run jumper wires between the socket and the switch from another window.
I have a 2011 Traverse that has a similar problem, my passenger side window started working intermittently then stopped working when I use the drivers side controls, the passenger side button still makes it go up and down though. So it can't be the motor, but when my boyfriend took the switches off he said there were no contacts to clean. So I guess I'll have to find someone to check the wires
Check the wires that run from the driver side door, you can move to boot to check the wires, I had 6 wires that were broken into half. Get you some wire and clear wire connectors
so you can match the wires up. $6.00 to fix the problem.
I was told it was a wire harness, a 300 piece.
I had my blinker sounds, driver door chiming and my driver side stereo speaker all went the same time. And now my window is going too, I have to slam the door, or squeeze the wire harness, sometimes it works some times it dont.
I can't look the part up because gm won't tell me the part name. Hmm.
Cleaning the motor housing worked like a charm. Thanks
2005 Equinox drivers side window not going up or down. But you pull or push it works. But sporadic. Also passage side does the same.
Cleaning the housing did the trick for me too, THANKS!!
Also having problems with the driver side window on my 2007 equinox . It won't do anything. The other windows are working fine. I had it checked out and they told me that the wires are all connected and the motor is fine that it maybe the computer. Along with this I'm having trouble with the driver side speaker and tire censor. Any ideas?
I have an 07 Equinox too and have the same problem. The front windows wont let down and the driver side speaker doesn't work. I know it is the motor or speaker bc I changed them out with the back passenger and they still didn't work but the back still worked fine. And also when I switch the car off and take the key out the radio stays on even when I open the doors. Wires look fine so I'm thinking it may be the relay. I'll try to check it tomorrow. If you found D out what's wrong. Let me know. Oh and about your tire sensor, those things are so fragile they mess up easy.
Mine is doing all those things as well. Did you figure out the problem? I cant afford to take it to the dealership for them to diagnose it.
My 07 Equinox is also doing all the.same on the drivers side. The window will only roll down if the door is open, the speaker doesn't work, and the radio will continue to play for 15 minutes after I shut the car off and take the keys out of the ignition, unles I tun it off manually. Any solutions would be appreciated
Check and replace the fuses if it's doing nothing and not making any noises.. Don't let someone talk you into parts you don't need. Then check to see if the buttons make any noise, even though they don't roll the window up or down. A noise means the window regulator motor is fine, but the window regulator is shot. Mine had plastic guides instead of wheels pulling the wires up and down to raise or lower the window. Those guides all melted and wore away one by one, so all of my window regulators have been replaced in the last five years. If there's no noise when you push the button and the regulator is fine, it could be the regulator motor. There's one in each door, plugged into the regulator. I had a shop do the Driver's window regulator because it has a master control switch. The other three I did on my own for under $50 each (new parts with warranty). It's a simple job, but it's important to have the right tools before you tear the door apart. My car was 10 years old when my window regulators started failing.

On my Equinox (2005) the switch was not the problem.
I think the window motor may be intermittent as the failure
occurs when the door has been exposed to direct sunlight.

i thought the problem was the motor or the switch, i ordered a replacement, but after reading these posts, someone mentioned the wire might be the problem, i even too the switches apart but i checked the wires in between the car door and the body and there it was, the wires harden over time and become brittle, the door starts to cut the wire, the brown wire to the window motor had been sliced, i didn't need a new motor, i just spliced the wires even though there's not much length left and tied them back together and taped them all up so the others don't get cut too, my window now works.
