Sounds like you have a wire that is broke and it sometimes still makes contact. The wires run thru the wall in a harness by the drivers door. A lot of the times this is where the wires will sometime break from the door being opened and shut. You will just have to look and find out where your break is. Also while the door is open turn ignition on push window button and grab wire harness by the door and move it back and forth and see if you can get it start and stop. If this is'nt the spot then you are going to have to start checking the controls in the door for loose wires

Check to make sure that the windows haven't popped off the track. This would cause the windows in your 2002 Envoy to become stuck and not go down. If you replaced the driver's side master power switch and the locks work but the windows just make a clicking sound, this could help.
