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
The first generation of the Chevrolet Equinox, a crossover SUV from Chevrolet based on General Motors' Theta platform.
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.
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.
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?
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.
