Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
Does the motor try to move the window? or is the window motor not working?
If you can hear the motor trying to move the window but it doesnt then something has jammed the window, It is impossible to know what jammed it without taking it all apart. It could be that it jumped out of the track or the rubber guide broke et.
On the other hand if the motor quit the most common cause is a blown fuse, bad switch, broken power wire where the wire goes through the door jamb, or a bad window motor. The only way to tell for sure is to check the items I listed one by one. If the other windows work then it probably isn't the fuse. You will have to get a tester and test for power to the switch and from the switch when activated. If you have power at both places you know its not a broken wire or switch. Most likely it will be a burned out motor. BUT you will need to disassemble the door and make sure that the wire from the switch to the motor is intact. Then check the ohms of the motor. If the circuit is open then the motor is bad. You will need a special tool to get the door panel off without ruining it. Some guys are pretty good with a screwdriver but I don't recommend that.
