sorry about that --- I have a 2001 Buick Le Sabre with a 3800.
Buick Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 3 years ago
I see, thanks.
.
That could be in the BCM but you will want to check the G200 ground to be sure. Also, for power to the window switch, (to be sure).
.
Here is a diagram of the G200 in the left side kick panel.I will see if I have any good diagnostics for that.
