Default front driver window

can anyone help me out my front driver window will not work here is what i have done already :

1 - replaced the window regulator and motor.
2 - replaced the master door switch.

still nothing i get 13.5 volts at the plug for the motor when i hit the switch up and down there is a clicking sound in the door control module. i am confused i applied direct power to the new window motor and it works also applied direct power to the old motor only to find out it worked as well anyone got a clue as to what i can look for next.

This may not apply since you've replaced the motor, but mine will sometimes get a "dead spot" that requires a little bit of force to correct. I usually just hold the button down while the door is open and shut the door at the same time. Some say to use a rubber mallet and strike the door panel, but just shutting the door doesn't leave any marks. Somestimes it takes a couple of good slams to get it going, but that always does the trick for me.

When you measured the voltage at the motor, was the motor connected? As you've already replaced the most likely suspects, it pretty much only leaves the driver'* door module. If the voltage drops or disappears when you measure the voltage with everything connected, the module may not be able to supply enough current to drive the motor. Check the connections for corrosion at the module, and for any pinched/sliced wires, too.

no corrosion at any of the connections i dont see any kinked bent or broken wires however i have not tried to get the voltage reading with everthing connected i will try that to see if it drops off. i do get a clicking noise out of the door module when i try the switch up and down and since all four windows run off of that module if it were bad would all of the windows not work as only my drivers window is affected.

The control for the windows are run through the driver'* door module, but the power supplied to each motor is provided by the individual door modules. The clicking you hear would indicate that the relay is getting the signal to activate the motor. However, that doesn't mean that it is actually providing enough current to drive the motors.

Here'* some wiring diagrams that may help you out.

Probably the best place would be a junk yard, if you can find one that has a late model Bonneville. I did a quick search at Rockauto and GM Parts Direct, without finding a listing. Do try to be certain that is the problem, by measurements, and inspections, including all fuses. I don't believe it is an inexpensive part.

sorry my reply is late i checked all the fuses under the back seat and under the hood havnt found any bad all wires look good i dont see any breaks kinks or corrosion im going to assume that it is the driver control module like you have sugested. the part is pretty expensive i called the dealer as none of the regular parts stores can get the part or dont list it the dealer has it for $230.00. im going to call around to a few junk yards and see what i can find.
