Power window motor is bad

2006 Buick... | Answered on Mar 11, 2019

The diagnosis is correct. But the price is twice as high as it should be. The bearing cost (depending on the manufacturer is $70.-$130., Labor for one side would be one to two hours. This repair should be no more than $350. Please get another estimate. A reputable shop will diagnose and confirm the issue. This repair does not need to be performed by the dealership. I could replace this in your driveway (hypothetically). Just saying, it isn't a bad job. Wheel comes off, brakes are removed, CV axle nut is removed, speed sensor is unplugged, hub bearing mounting bolts are removed and the hub bearing is removed. That is it. Surfaces are cleaned and the parts are reassembled. There is some lock tight used and bolts are torqued but this is not a bad job.Any questions please write back. Good Luck.

First try unlocking the rear hatch again. If you look closely at the latch. You should see what looks like a "U". Is the "U" open in the inside area? Do you see what might look like a hook that is blocking up the middle and preventing the striker from sliding into place. If you notice that the hook is blocking the hole and hitting the hatch release button didn't help. Either the bungee cord somehow aided in the latch getting damaged or the hook needs to be assisted and pulled back in the released position. To attempt this service. Get a helper, stick a philips head screwdriver through the hole of the hook and apply pressure towards the opening of the "U". While you are applying pressure ask your assistant to hit the open button for the hatch. If after the second try there is no positive result. More than likely the latch will need to be replaced. Good Luck.

I don't know what your mechanic is using for a scan tool (and it may not apply) but the code/s won't be stored in with the engine codes. They should be located within the PCM or transmission control module. If he did look at the transmission codes and there were none. Then I suspect there to be some type of mechanical failure. There is a sensor located inside the rear differential. Did he verify that it is working. The GM part# 88896067 also the rear differential fluid condition, level and type is important too. Ask your mechanic to take another look. Good Luck.

Check your oil level on the oil dipstick.

It may be possible the starter was replaced at some point and someone forgot to install the start shim or shims. Also, check the charging system because you may have a bad alternator.

There is no P0402 listen in factory service repair manual for this vehicle . Your best bet , take it to a buick dealer . Some after market scanners pull wrong code's ,take it to where they have factory tool an have genuine gm parts! A P0402 in older vehicles was for a EGR system problem ! Your vehicle does not have an EGR valve . Has a Camshaft Actuator System
