Default window motor?

i've had trouble lately with my pass. side rear window not working..it didn't work for a couple of weeks on either switch(driver or door)...but the other day i was driving and gave it a shot and wah-lah!..the window works again..any idea why it would work sometimes but not others?

is something going out or could it have just gotten wet?...my Lumina used to do that all the time if i drove in the rain w/the window down...but this is the first time the Bonnie has done it..not really a big deal since i barely put the rear windows down and i'm generally the only one in the car..but I wanna know for future reference: )

Really sounds like a loose connection either power or ground. When the window is inoperable, does the power lock on that door also go inop?

Bang on the door with your closed fist next time it flakes out. If it works, it'* a sticky regulator that needs to be excercised. Both my rears on the 93 did that when I bought it. In fact, neither would go down. Car had been stored for nearly 5 years. Both started magically working intermittently later, and now work fine.

For electrical problems, please remember that it can be THAT switch OR the master switch. If the master switch in the driver'* door fails, window won't work.
