All four windows get power and ground thru the driver switch.
So I would start by checking the driver switch with a meter or test light.

SOURCE: Pontiac Grand Prix Drivers side window won't go down

Most often on those the motors are shot. as soon as they are activated they overheat and slow down or stop. Only way I know of to repair is to replace them. You will need a manual to do this or do them one at a time so you can check how it goes back together by looking at other one. Motors are riveted in and need to be drilled to remove...use small bolts to re-attach.
I've seen motors online for about $30-40 each.

Not sure what year your car is but on 2004's the low side is low behind the engine on the pax side. Near the alternator.

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.

Two things can be the problem,first,try adding ,a little freon,if it is low,it will only cool one side,then if this does not help,there is a door actuator motor that controls this,it could be not working,the dash has to come out to replace this actuator motor,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

2004 Pontiac grand prix gtp won't start- fully


You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.

Power window on 1999 pontiac grand prix gt 2 door driver side broke. motor still works but window wont stay up.


what I would recommend is that you will have to test the window actuator first. You will need to remove the door panel to get at the actuator. From there, just jump the actuator to see if the window goes up or down. Don't worry about which terminal is positive or negative, they are switched back and forth by the control switches.
