Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

1992 Pontiac Gran AM SE 53K Windows Speaker etc. Bad Ground??

Both windows slow/intermittant going up and down. Took passenger door apart, lubricated, etc. no improvement. Swapped switch no improvement. Cleaned body ground (next to battery) "seemed" to help driver side but passenger side still N/G. Passenger door speaker now almost dead and has static. Do not think related to my repair attempt as it started significant time after. The fact that both windows went "bad" at the same time I am thinkng ground. Car was hit over 10 years ago about 25K miles (prior to my owning) and repaired passenger side hood, front quarter. Unknown if door was hit or replaced. Is there another major grounding point I can check or something else to consider. Thanks

You mentioned tht the quarter panel was hit before you owned it was the door hit also
if you think bout it small breaks in the wire from the accident could have got weather in them over time and cause there connections to corrode or deteroiate let an automotive electrical shop give it a look

Sounds like your drivers side window regulator motor gear is bad as far as the other windows drivers door switch is most likely bad if you dont have experience working on electrical or have never taken apart a door panel I would recommend seeing a mechanic. To check the switch you have to disassemble passenger door panel accesa the window regulator motor disconnect the weatherpack connect hook up multimeter and test for power while having an assistant push the window switch down

I had a problem similar to this but mine was in a GT and they would just work when they wanted to. I just had all the wires cut leading to the front passenger seat, back driver seat, and back passenger seat. And left the wires on the main. They all work perfect now. But the downside is that the driver is the only one who can put the windows down. (Which isn't always a bad thing) Hope I could help!

My passenger window won't go down


you should check the fuses first, then ensure power to the motor in the passenger side if no power check the switches for the power windows. Also it is common for window motors/ regulators to fail and have to be replaced. If the driver's one is running slowly remove door panel and lubricate the cables and tracks with some rust check or wd 40 etc, etc... and silicone lube on the guide tracks at either end of the window. hope this helps

How do replace heater core in 2002 Pontiac Gran Prix


i do believe you have to take the passengers side dash apart behind the glove compartment. go to autozone and get a manual or go to the library and check the chiltons manual. this is not an easy job. how bad is the leak? if its not bad these heater cores are made of all aluminum. i would buy a bottle of that radiator additive and see if that takes care of the problem first. it only cost about 5 bucks a bottle and it may permanantly fix your problem.

The SE and LE indicate opinions on the cars. Most of the parts will interchange. When doing engine changes, the best way is to swap the ECM also.
