I'm not sure if I read this right:
everything up to all connection the outside of the switch is working fine, except the switch.

If this is the case the switch is bad. Inside the switch there are some some balls and Spring loaded for positioning, but it also has surface contacts. Overtime it got corroded or dirty preventing from good electrical conductions. Hope this can help?

Power windows in 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix all quit working?? how do I fix this....??

Hello Cindy Cox,

power windows are generally on a circuit breaker...
Yours: $7 ...
PWR WDO circuit breaker (25 amp on fuse panel)

I'm not sure how you are "following" but my first
best & always recommendation is to get a

Having a couple of lifelong careers using drawings

You can view FREE drawings (and technical service
bulletins (TSBs)) on BBB Industries website at
BBB Industries Premium Alternators Starters Power Steering Products

Look at Body & Accessories... Windows
(the display has an annoying tendency to switch back to TSBs
but there is only ONE drawing taking you back to your "BREAKER"... so it should not be too perplexing.

I looked on ROCKAUTO for your BREAKER... but only
found 30 AMPERES... I do not recommend you
TOY with the wrong breakers...

That can cause an expensive MELT DOWN if not a
whole-sale fire... Your BREAKER may be quite legitimately
OPERATED (open) because of a hard fault... TYPICALLY
in the most used, abused & weathered switch in your car...

Try disconnecting the driver door... allow time for the BREAKER to chill out and see if the other windows might start working...

Get out your volt meter and test the switches on the drivers door switch for proper functionality...

That is a VERY POPULAR PART (means "troublesome")

Pontiac Montana 2004 drivers side power window stopped. Will not open. Can't find right fuse. Where is it?

It's not a fuse problem , all the other windows work ? One Circuit breaker powers all windows . Probably the window regulator is bad or the switch or the motor . Pull the door panel off the driver door an test the electrical circuits . Could also have wires broken inside the body to door flex joint (black rubber boot )

Power windows relay

There is none. Power windows come from a circuit breaker in the fuse panel. If no windows work, look for a hot wire to the driver's window master switch, with key on. It may be a violet wire, and the ground for the windows originates at the master switch and runs back into the cabin to a nearby ground. Check for broken wires in the door opening. Likely either the power wire or the ground may be broken, and need splicing back together. If the wires are good and you have power to the switch and the ground is good, it is possible that the master switch may be bad.

99 corolla passenger window wont roll up

Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Operate the windows from the master control switch. If none of the windows work, check the main fuse or breaker for the whole power window circuit. If only one of the windows is inoperative, go to Step 3.

  • 2 Check the main circuit relay using a test light. If voltage is coming out of the relay, there is an open or short at the wire feeding power to the other switches. If no voltage is coming out of the relay, use the test light to make sure voltage is reaching the relay. If voltage is reaching the relay, replace it. If there is no voltage reaching the relay, there is an open or short at the wire between the relay and the main fuse.
  • 3 Check the circuit fuse or breaker at the inoperative window. If the fuse or breaker is okay, go to the next step. If you can hear a humming sound as you press the switch but the window does not operate, either the motor is bad or its gearbox may have broken teeth. Go to Step 7.
  • 4 Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Using a multimeter, check the master control lockout switch for continuity. If there is no continuity, replace the lockout switch. With some vehicle models, problems at the lockout switch can cause both rear windows to fail.
  • 5 Try the switch at the inoperative window and check for continuity using a voltmeter. If there is no continuity, replace the switch.
  • 6 Check for voltage at the switch using a test light. If voltage is not reaching the switch, there is an open or short between the incoming wire and the fuse or breaker for that circuit power window.
  • 7 Take off the trim panel from the inoperative window. Check for voltage at the motor with a test light while pressing the switch. If there is no voltage, there is a short or open at the wire between the switch and the motor. If the circuit is equipped with a relay, test for voltage reaching and coming out the relay. Make sure the relay is working properly. If voltage is reaching the motor, go to the next step.
  • 8 Detach the window from the regulator and inspect the regulator mechanism by moving the window up and down by hand. Make sure nothing restrains the mechanism. Also, inspect the motor gearbox. Replace any parts as necessary.

    If the power window circuit breaker goes bad , will all of the windows stop working,, on a 1997 grand am

    Windows not working

    If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
    Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
    To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
    1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
    Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
    5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
    Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    Power windows stopped working

    If ALL the windows quit working, then it's either a bad circuit breaker or a short circuit. There are two fuse/relay/breaker panels: under the hood and under the back seat cushion. The power window circuit breaker is under the back seat cushion, near the battery. Remove the back seat completely, then remove the fuse panel top and inner cover. The fuse diagram is inside the top cover. Circuit breaker # 57 is the one. Pull it out. Use your voltmeter/multi-tester to check for continuity through the breaker. If there's no continuity, the breaker is bad and needs to be replaced. If it's good, then you have a dead short somewhere that causes the self-resetting breaker to uncouple when you attempt to operate a window. If so, the short will need to be traced down and repaired. Good luck.

    My driver side window wont go up. When tested no power going to it. But the fuse isnt bad. Anyone have any ideas? When button is pushed down the relay clicks.

    The problem will be either the window switch or window regulator motor. With the relay clicking sounds like window regulator. It easiest and and costs only a couple dollars more to get and replace the whole assembly versus just the motor. I hope this is helpful.
