It's under the hood, on the driver's side, under a square, black box with a lightning symbol on it. Loosen the flower-shaped screw that holds the lid of the box down, remove the lid, flip it upside down and when you look at the inside of the lid, you'll see a map of all your car's fuses. There's also a fuse diagram on the very end of the dash, but it's accessible only when you open the driver's side door. When you're driving, that end of the dash is blocked by the closed door.

SOURCE: my 2004 pontiac grand prix window it will go down

Does it try to come up, EG is there power being applied when you press the UP switch? if it makes no sound or movement when pressing the UP switch it is probably a worn out switch - available at Pontiac dealers though you may have to order it and wait a few days - have your VIN number for the parts desk and you'll get the part in no time - the switch levers out of the panel - use a plastic tool if possible to prize the switch out so you don't damage the surrounding trim - the cable connector clips off the old switch and goes on the new switch, press the switch home into the recess and jiggle it a bit to make it dead flat - window should work now.
If it IS making an effort to come up then either you have a poor earth or power connection making it so there is not enough power to pull the windows up (which is harder than down due to the weight of the window) -- check the cabling behind the door panel, and as above pull out the switch and check its connector too.
OR... the window is out of alignment and is jamming - putting it back in alignment means taking off the door panel and getting at the bottom of the window runner, loosening the bolt(s) on the bottom of the runner and moving it sideways so it hold the window steady but not tightly, you may have to try having it tighter or looser against the window till you get the best performance - also oil the moving parts/cables of the window mechanism (dont get oil on the glass, it will smear for weeks) to give the best chance of smooth operation.

I have a 2004 grand prix its giving me a problem when it comes to putting gas on it it would only take like or 15 dollars or less

The usual cause of this is a venting problem. You have a purge solenoid that purges the fumes in the tank. It is part of the evap system and emission control. When this valve gets stuck closed, it will make it very difficult to pump gas. Is your engine light on? The purge solenoid looks something like this 4_8_2014_11_52_36_pm.png

2004 Grand Prix GT gas cap light,an engine light is on. Took it to autozone an code read po445 replaced gas cap, an light is still on. is there a time limit on light going out if i jus replaced it? Or what...

P0445 - Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit Shorted is located in the engine compartment and is most likely the root of the problem.Would check the plug and wiring going to this to verify that no plug or wiring damaged has occurred.It is quite possible the part has gone bad.

I have a 2005 grand prix and the OBDII light stays on i have checked the gas cap and its on tight

Hi, are you saying the trouble code is P0455, or have you not scanned the car? If you have not scanned the car, please get a free scan at you local parts chain and send us the codes.
If you have P0455, check the EVAP hose from the fuel tank to the charcoal cannister for leaks. Inspect the cannister and the hose to the purge valve. Make sure the purge valve is not stuck open.
Let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

How many purge valves does a 1997 grand prix (V6-3800 3.8L) have?

If your talking about the cooling system some have two and some have only one, there will be one on the thermostat housing and there may be one by the water pump.
