    Default Prob with electric windows

    Hey guys, I need some help with troubleshooting a problem with my electric windows. I just picked up a 91 GMC Suburban Travel Quest that has been sitting for 3 years. Everything works great but the electric windows. If you try and open any of the windows they will only come down about 2 inches and then stop, if you try again after about 5 minutes, they will go down another 2 inches and then stop, wait another 5 minutes or so and the same thing, this goes one until the window is completly down. Same thing for trying to go up, try and wait, try and wait.

    I have also noticed that while trying to get the windows down or up, my volt gauge starts to drop, I had the alt(105 Amp) and batt checked, both okay.

    Thinking that I might be having a ground problem, but not sure..... so looking for some advice and wisdom.

    Thanks in advance
    Bill

    Hey guys, Just wanted to give an update, I pulled the master window switch and cleaned with contact cleaner, now at least one of the windows work, so I decided to just go ahead and order a new one. Man it was hard to find the 4 button master switch, but LMC had one, so its on the way

    Have a great weekend
