WINDOW SWITCH

1999 GMC Safari

Electrical problem
1999 GMC Safari 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 48000 miles

The drivers side window worked most of the time but occasionally after putting down it won; t go up. If I shut off the motor and wait a couple of minutes then try again it works. What causes this?

This is usually caused by a overheated window motor and if not used it will cool and reset itself then work again until it overheats again

Thanks. So I guess that means the motor is shot or is there something else that could be causing it to over heat?
