It's probably the motor but needs to be checked out. I am certainly not an expert on these things but... I own a 2000 Lasabre that has been a good car but....the windows go bad. Both back windows stopped working and fell down. Luckily I had a neighbor who was good at fixing such things so we removed the door panel off and found that the cable the moved the window up and down was tracking poorly fraying it to the point it was off the track and broken. Rather than buy parts, and since it was the rear windows which came down only part way we reround the cable, put it back in, put the window in the up position and disconnected the motor. All has been fine since. Yesterday the passenger side front window dropped and won't come up...so today I am trying to get the door panel off and see if the cable on this window has also gone bad. Getting the panel off has been a challange. My take on the Lasabre windows....they are crap....the car has been great but it's automatic windows leave something to be desired. This problem is caused by a broken "up" cable on the window regulator. This regulator operates the window using a cable to pull the window up and a different cable to pull the window down. It is usually the "up" cable that breaks. This problem is REALLY bad in 2000 lesabre cars. The designer of the window regulator has the "up" cable attached to nothing more than a plastic piece. This piece will break sometimes with little or no good reason. (ie bump in the road, raising the window, etc.) Buick will not claim any responsibility for these regulators unless REALLY pressed but the fact is that they had/have a bunch of these go bad. R.Hand

On a 2000 Buick Lesabre 4-door the passenger front and back and the driver side back windows stopped working at the same time what might cause this?

Hey Harry==It is probably the wiring or the drivers door switch. It will have to be checked out. GoodluckJoe Check wiring harness first...After buying new 4 button door switch(83$) I found out the wiring harness between front door and door jam has a broken wire . This was on a buick regal 2000. Some 2000 buick lesabres have a "child safety" switch on the driver side door panel which, if activated, will cause this symptom. I am not aware that ALL lesabres have this switch but I would bet that all lesabres are "wired the same so if this switch is not present then a good guess is that the problem can still be found inside the front door panel. (loose wire, etc.) R.Hand

Is a 1999 Buick lesabre good in the snow?

Yes. Buick Lesabres of this generation are known for their capability in the snow. They have most of their weight up front, right over the drive wheels. They are also geared high, for freeway cruising. This limits the torque avaliable at launch, making it easier to moderate wheelspin. The leSabre's long wheelbase also makes the car less squirrely in the snow, keeping it pointed in the direction you want to go. A LeSabre with good tires will do better in the snow than a 4X4 with bad tires.

I have talked to General Motors customer service and was told that you don't fix the unglued dash on a Buick LeSabre. I have looked at 48 LeSabres in various parking lots and 32 of them had unglued dash problems. This must be a factory defect and should be corrected by GM.
