Question Intermittent working power windows...

In the daily, the rear windows work every once in awhile. Possible causes? The front windows always have worked flawlessly.

Gm is notorious for the window motors to die out of nowhere. My brothers grand prix went through a set every two years it seemed.

It's strange, they work every morning when I start the car to go to work. Later in the day, no bueno.

Heat can do that to electric motors

How many times have you had a starter work when the car was cold, but as soon as it was up to operating temp it wouldn't crank anymore?

Yesterday morning the right rear worked, but the left rear didn't. The sun was on the side that didn't work. Could very well be a heat issue based on that.
