The "Theftlock" theft deterrent system is a feature on all base and uplevel radios. There is no need to
program a security code into the radio as in past model years. The theft deterrent system now utilizes
class 2 serial data to determine if the radio is in the appropriate vehicle. Each time the radio receives
the "run" power mode message, it compares the VIN information it has stored to the VIN information
received from a module on the class 2 serial data circuit responsible for transmitting that information.
If a mis-match occurs, the radio display will indicate to the user the radio is locked. Once this takes
place, a DTC will set, the radio will not respond to any button presses and become inoperative. The
two scenarios able to cause this condition are:

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.

Make sure your battery is fully charged and all terminals and connections are clean, first. If the car still makes a clicking sound near the starter its your starter selonoid. Some vehicle models allow you to just replace the selonoid and others require a whole new starter. Either way you'll probably have to remove the whole starter to accomplish the repair.

Go to autozone.com create a free account put in you cars model year etc... then look at the free manual for replacing head gasket it will have a bolt tightening sequence diagram. also they usually have to be taken off in a paticular sequemnce to avoid warping the head. If aluminum heads they usually recommend new head bolt set and having the head shaved (Leveled)
