2006 GMC Envoy. Consumer writes in regards to reimbursement for front power window switch module replacement. According to the invoice, the power window switch was defective due to corrosion caused by water or rain that leaked into the main circuit board window switch module.
The drivers door window switch got warm then stopped working, all other windows work with there switches. I am a body tech so I pull the switch out and found the it got so hot it melted. To my surprise it did not trip a breaker or blew a fuse.
The window switch on the drivers side caught fire and burned the insulation, plastic, switch, and no longer works.
While vehicle was running, a burn smell eminitting from driver side door. Immediately brought vehicle to local repair shop for repair. They diagnosed the smell and window failure to the driver side master switch. The repair shop used original replacement part. This month again, my switch does not work and windows currently are not working. Frustrating because GMC accepted no responsibility. I still have the old switch and receipt and should be eligible for reimbursement for the labor and replacement part cost. Thank you.
End gate window regulator failure. No replacement part available.

On February 8, 2010, I put my SUV in my garage for the night. When I went to get in it the next morning to go to work, the driver's side window was down. I went to turn the ignition key and nothing worked on that side of the door and the window would not go up. This panel controls everything, seat control, movement and heated seat, all windows, both outside mirrors, and now when I turn the key on the horn blows. When I leave the key in the ignition, the alarm to tell me I did, does not go off. I have to manually lock the drivers door. I had to drive it to a dealership, in a snow storm, 0 degree weather, with the window down, only to find out the master switch on the drivers door had burned up. The service mgr. To who I took it to tried to find the part by calling the GMC dealership and junk yards only to be told that this was happening all over the country and that a part was not available anywhere. Most of the doors we were told, were catching on fire and the service mgr. Told me he could smell where it had burned and I was lucky it didn't catch on fire in my garage. I am still waiting on a part to be found or to be manufactured. If this is happening all over the country, why has this not been on recall and how soon can I expect a part and could this still catch on fire. After a lot of work, they finally got my window up, manually so I can still drive it but it is a huge inconvenience. I am on a list at the GMC dealership but have no idea what is going on or when to expect it. Thank you.

Both of my windows which slide down with the push of a button do not work! they have both busted. One is stuck down. The other I have to shove up because while driving from the vibrations it falls. Very unsafe. They both stopped work while I was operating them by pushing the button for them to slide down. I have not replaced them yet. Its very costly. Its hard to believe no recall has been done. I have found many other complaints regarding this.

2007 Envoy- decided to roll down passenger window to let fresh air in, cable mechanism for passenger window broke in half window fell down the door, window is now being held up by duct tape. The check engine light is on, nothing is wrong with vehicle, the low fuel light is on constantly even when it has a full tank. This is a 2007 Envoy with all of these problems, has been great vehicle since 2 weeks ago when it got extremely cold and all the problems occurred.
Driver's door panel no longer works, and smells like an electric fire. Check/replaced fuse = ok. All other doors works without a problem, and remote opens other three doors. Driver side door is faulty, and car smells of electrical fire. I removed the fuse, to be safe for right now.
I own a 2003 GMC Envoy and 3 of the 4 power window motors have had to be replaced. This is a very expensive replacement at the dealership. One was replaced while under warranty but the other 2 happened after the warranty expired. Each window cost was $580. 00 for the motor and labor. I think that this part is defective and should be investigated.
(1) events leading up to the failure, - (a) regulator in driver side middle seat door window regulator failed prior to 36000 and - (b) passenger side middle seat door window regulator failed at 43000 miles (2) a- window failed to operate at no charge b- new regulator installed - $200 + charge (3) parts replaced for prior to warranty charge over $200 for second failure.
Gas tank back spits when filling at station. . . Goes all over ground rear access window pops open when driving passenger window mechanism broken and glass pieces formed in door. Mechanism failed to raise and lower the window. . . Causing a grinding sound. Replacement was costly and unecessary for me the car owner. Should work for years without failure.
I have a 2004 GMC Envoy. It has two bucket seats and a second row bench seat and a trunk that is separated by a panel with a glass inside the panel. I guess I have rolled this window down 5 times since I have owned it and now the glass will not roll up or down. I took it to a shop and they said the part (regulator) is on back order from gm. This means only one thing that they have had nothing but problems with it. I called the dealer I purchased the vehicle and of course they honor nothing and in fact had sold out and did not know where my papers were at on the vehicle. This was the reason it took me 34 years to purchase another gm vehicle. I got burned as a green kid out of college with my first job and purchased a gm and got screwed by the sales person in the checkered coat. Go figure. On top of all this, the radio face has turned from black to yellow as the paint of all things has started coming off of the radio. Why was the plastic not molded black plastic instead of yellow plastic and painted. Dealer said it was not under warranty as it was past the miles. Well that stinks as I had the truck less than a year at that point. I travel a lot in my job and put a lot of miles on the vehicle, but that should not have anything to do with the radio or window regulator. What can I do?.
Both rear windows dropped open without reason or cause during highway operation. First window was repaired under warranty, second failure occurred outside of warranty.
2005 GMC Envoy has developed multiple problems. The driver side front seat side cover was coming off and the passenger side front window was inoperative. Both issues were recurrent.
I have a 2003 GMC Envoy. While driving, my daughter attempted to put down the window in the back seat but found it was "jammed". . . It would not go up or down. I took it to the dealer who stated the regulator had to be replaced. In researching the NHTSA site, it appears that other consumers have had the same problems.
After reading the following article, I check and my rear break light bulb driver side was burned out. Please, move forward with this recall!! I have a 2002 Envoy slt that is at 40k miles. Also, my rear driver's side electric window mechanism unexpectedly broke. Some cable inside. The dealer wants to charge $500 to replace the whole assembly. Can you say highway robbery? like mileage has anything to do with window usage. . Read more...
On 3 separate occasions sun roof stuck in an open position. Dealership replaced the sun roof motor. This provided a temporary solution. Also, at 6,000 miles, severe and uncontrollable vibration occurred in the entire body of the vehicle when the rear windows were opened. Vibration occurred when the vehicle's speed exceeded 55 mph. Dealership representative indicated after test driving the vehicle that the vibration was normal, and only one rear window should be opened at a time. Consumer felt the vibration was caused by a design flaw in the rear windows.
Faulty driver side seat belt that will not release to fasten. I have taken the car in and the repair person said that there was nothing wrong, and that it just was catching on something. Also, the passenger side door behind the drivers seat was very hard to open the repair person at the same dealership broke the handle trying to open the door. The repair shop did fix the handle for free, however the door remains still very hard to open and I would not use this particular door. After a while the door would not close and the door latch had to be replaced at my expense. The back window would not go all the way up and the actuator had to be replaced also. I am not sure what month the first incidence took place, but everything seemed to happen quickly afterwards.
