Window on passenger front door will not work. It went down and with extreme slowness finally got it to roll back up. Cannot use at all now.

The drivers side back door will sometimes unlock with the kiosk and sometimes I have to manually unlock the door lock. This has been going on for a year. Now my drivers side window will sometimes roll down after several times trying to roll it down. Other times it will not roll down. Has anyone else experienced this with their 2008 Equinox?

Equinox 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
I purchased my Chevrolet Equinox brand new in 2008 and currently we are having issues with the following: 1- drivers side window- will only roll down and/or up intermittently. Occasionally it will roll back up if the interior panel is hit several times. 2- door locks/alarm- the alarm will set but the doors will not lock with the key fob. When using the power locks inside the car, the drivers side door is the only door that will consistently lock. The back door locks will get stuck half way and won't lock or unlock except manually. 3- stabilitrac- the stabilitrac will disable randomly. It has happened while driving in dry conditions or wet conditions, on warm and cold days and also when the car is being started in the driveway. 4- airbags- the "service airbags" light will come on and go off for no reason. It will come on one day and be on for a week and then go off for a month or two and then come back on again. 5- drivers side headlight cover holds a lot of moisture 6- check tire pressure comes on quite a bit for no reason. All tire pressures are double checked and are at the perfect pressure recommended by GM.

Drivers side power door lock stopped working. Driver side power window slowly began to fail. Would work when it wanted to and then stopped working altogether. Seems like the same recall as the 250K midsize SUV's based on the trailblazer(2006,2007).
