I Think I need a Power Window Motor

When I first got my 97 STS I had a couple of problems with the windows.

First, the drivers window worked fine but when rolled up it would make a grinding noise when it reached the top if I didn't let go of the switch right away. Now the window won't do anything. No up, down and no grinding noise. Do I just need a new motor or do I need a regulator or something?

The other problem is from the drivers side I can roll the passengers window down but not up. The passengers side switch will roll it up. Probably just need to clean the drivers side switches right?

Thanks in advance.

PROBABLY, i would pull the door panel and check the windows out, i had a 90 that had a footbal plastic piece that broke but that was 7 years before your car and hopefully they changed that design so i dont have to do it in my 98 deville.
I have been searching this same exact issue, and was relieved when I found your post, until I saw no resolution. Did you end up solving this issue? If so was it indeed the motor that had failed?
I never did solve it. I ended up selling the car, it had many more issues.
Thanks for responding, I had the identical symptoms you described. I just replaced the motor, and it solved my issue.
