This I have found out online is a common problem, when I purchased my car I had a few windows suddenly drop on me & I figured out the window motors in 2 were broken, however when they dropped I also found out electrical systems in my door were damaged from the window motor failure, so now on my driver's side door I have no mirror adjustment, no unlock/lock button for safety in dangerous areas I drive, some windows (had all 4 motors replaced at the same time) work & some don't from certain areas, I even found after I used my right rear window motor, the trunk popped open! so to fix the problem I personally had to disconnect the new window motor as well as the trunk. Also for comfort in heat my heated seat doesn't work from my driver door. My car runs perfect but this shouldn't have happened. This should have been recalled for owners long ago for 2000-2005 Buick Lesabre.
