Passenger Window and Both Power Rear Views Glichy

So I have a cobalt that has power windows and rear view windows For some reason the passenger switch to roll the windows down and up does not work, but if I use my driver switch to roll the passenger down; it works fine. Also my rear view power windows dont want to move anywhere except down, when I try to use the power adjuster, WTH is wrong? Thanks for the input cobalt ppl

Since it is the same fuse that supplies power to both power switches I would tend to believe that you have a bad power window switch on passenger side.

I'm sure you meant rear view mirrors so...
Same with your mirrors since these are a totaly different circuit I think you have a bad switch there also or maybe a broken wire.

Cannot upload large .pdf files to this site so I have to convert them to Jpeg but can't do this on my cell, I will try to download pdf from GM server, convert and upload JPEG diagrams tomorrow.

I know this is an old thread but I just discovered my rear drivers side power window does not respond to the driver power switch or the rear door power window switch. All other windows and switches work on my 2009 sedan. Do you think it's a fuse?

Well I fixed mine, and it was the switch itself. It would either be your switch trigger itself, or fuse; in my opinion.

Well it's not the fuse. According to my manual, one fuse in spot 29 on the inside fuse lock controls all the power windows. I pulled that and none of the power windows worked. I put it back in and every window worked except that rear driver's side.

There are two rocker arms that control that, one in the driver's armrest and the other in the rear door armrest and neither one move the window. Are they connected to one switch? Where is that switch located?

I would fair to guess that your power window motor has a dead spot or is just bad. Each window is controled by BCM. It would have to be one hell of a coincidence that both switches would be bad at same time.

I found a wiring diagram. Since there are two different switches and neither one works, I think that would point to the rear power window motor if I'm looking at it right. Although mine is a 2009 and this is for a 2007, I doubt that they have changed that much.

Thanks Coby, I came to the same conclusion and was posting before I read your post.

I found a remanufactured motor for $60 (Cardone) at O'Reilly Auto Parts. Is that what I need? How hard is it to replace? Or do I need to replace the whole lift system which would cost me over $150?
