The cables are fraded, i had the same problem !!
best thing too do is go too ebay and get the whole assembly (and its new) for about 60.00 rather than get it form a parts store for 150.00

My drivers side power window went down and now wont go all the way up. It will only go up about 3 inches then stops

Three inches at a time, or three inches total? If three inches at a time, you need a power window motor. If three inches total, you need a window regulator. Both these items are typically replaced as an assembly anyway.

get a can of silicone spray lube from a hardware or auto parts store and lube the glass run channels, pour/spray it in there until it runs out the bottom of door, the run the window up and down a few times, this should cure the problem. keep it off the paint and plastic parts.

1998 firebird passenger window "sticks"

Okay Lets start with the window problem.

The factory wire guage is too small and under-powers the windows. You can read up about it on, just do a search for AutoTrix or slow passenger window.

Here is a post about it

You can get the wiring kit at

For the speaker: I would take the door panel off and check the connections for the speaker. It might be easier to check the connections on the back of the stereo first but something either came undone or the speaker died.

The headlight is another common problem. The headlight motors come with plastic gears that strip. Yours could just be sticking from rust on the linkage or the motor is dieing. If it is the gear I would look into this info here :
If you just go to his home page there is TONS of info on firebirds

Good Luck

Window dont work

that would most definitely be your power window motor. the motor iself is worn out. if you remove the door panel you will see whats called the window regulator (holds the window in the tracks). you might be able to replace just the window motor but sometimes you have to replace the whole regulator assembly. it depends on the vehicle.

2000 GMC Safari drivers window goes up and down slow and stops. It only moves a little at a time. You have to wait a little while and move it a little more till you finally get it closed.Motor problem?

yes it sounds like the window motor is getting weak but when i had it tore down i would check all of the track system to make sure the window will move up & down freely with the motor removed.
