98 Buick Century, Locks and Windows

'98 Buick Century 4 door

Several problems, not sure if they are related or not.

Power Locks - Just went out the other day. The keychain remote will not work. Nor will the power lock switch on the driver door to lock all dors

Rear Driver side door- Will not lock unless you manually lock it from the inside. Even when the keychain remote and driver door switch worked.
**Also, the window will not roll down with either the front driver switch or the rear door switch.


Driver side power window- Will sometimes roll down (seems like when I first start the car it will roll down and up for a while, but later on will not)

other 2 windows on passenger side work fine

Check the wires in the door jam when you open it. Peel back the rubber boot and see if the wires are broken. Check both sides.

On the windows: Bear in mind that buick had a lot of window motor problems for about 5 years. Put 3 in same 96 buick in 4 years.

SSSHHhhh! Don't let my 96 GS hear you! It's starting to
have gremlins in the window motors too!

If it is the wires, what is my next step?

Using an OEM wiring diagram to guide you, check each affected wire carefully for breaks in the insulation, rubbing, grounding, etc.
