I have a 01 Deville DTS, rear left door just stoped working about 2 months ago. I have not been able to dig into it yet, just hoping someone can help. Door is completly dead, no power to window, switch, locks from door itself or from master. Looking through the owners manual i only see 1 fuse for passanger door module. not seperate doors, right sid still works fine. Any Ideas? Thanks

Had the same problem with front passenger door, was the car boosted lately?..could trip the computer. I disconnected the ground on my battery for 15 secs. and voila everything worked fine and have had no problems. Try this before yanking at electrical parts.

No trouble codes, also pulled the battery for 3 hrs and nothing. I did forget to mention that the courtesy light does work now and again, when the light is working the rest of the door still is not. AAAUUHHHH!!!! Thanks.

you are going to have to see if you have supply power to know if the problem is in the door or the supply.

Hmm weird. I had the same problem with the same door on my 01. It turned out to be intermittent and I don't' ever use the rear seat so I never investigated.

Last time I tried it, it was working.

My 2000 DeVille has the same issue only on the left rear door. When I wiggle the wires in the door jam I can get it to work sometimes. My question is where is the door pin on these cars? Is it a contact that is in the wiring harness? I think there is a connection issue which causes the problem. I see a bunch of people have this issue.

No door pins. that's old school. The switch is integrated into the latch. But that wouldn't cause all the power to go out.

I have the same problem in my 00 DeVille - I'm guessing it a bad connection in the wiring harness in the door.

I got the same problem but on my rear right side...just bought a rear door module off ebay for $25 let's see if it works if not then my guess its a break in door jam or somewhere along there

its defiantly a wire issue.
i have my right left window not working however everything else works
the wire is what causes it.. because with the door shut the window will not work... however if i open the door and hit the button the window will work perfectly.
so there must be a pinch area where it breaks a hot or signal wire.

open the door and pull the rubber on the harness and check for a broke wire usually the black ground wire from opening and closing door causes it to break

My 2002 DTS stalled and wouldn't restart until I opened the left rear door to remove the seat to inspect the battery. The wirings were broken in the jamb boot and were shorting. rebuilt the harness by pushing the pins out of the connector and crimping and soldering new wiring. I thought GM had cured this problem, but no.

I posted that this site is too complicated, and it is. I signed in and welcome stuff but no place to ask or find a color code for my 2003 Deville right rear door.

I didn't sighn on to chat. Just a door wire color code. Thanks for informing me that I need to look elsewhere and not become a donating member.
