This happened to me, and I had to replace the window motor inside the door. I have a 1995 also, and the windows seals aren't what they used to be, and let water get in and wear on the motor. It was easy enough for me to do myself.

Power windows in 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix all quit working?? how do I fix this....??


Hello Cindy Cox,

power windows are generally on a circuit breaker...
Yours: $7 ...
PWR WDO circuit breaker (25 amp on fuse panel)

I'm not sure how you are "following" but my first
best & always recommendation is to get a
good FACTORY GRADE WORKSHOP
REPAIR MANUAL.

Having a couple of lifelong careers using drawings
THE LEAST FRUSTRATING are paper...

You can view FREE drawings (and technical service
bulletins (TSBs)) on BBB Industries website at
BBB Industries Premium Alternators Starters Power Steering Products

Look at Body & Accessories... Windows
(the display has an annoying tendency to switch back to TSBs
but there is only ONE drawing taking you back to your "BREAKER"... so it should not be too perplexing.

I looked on ROCKAUTO for your BREAKER... but only
found 30 AMPERES... I do not recommend you
TOY with the wrong breakers...

That can cause an expensive MELT DOWN if not a
whole-sale fire... Your BREAKER may be quite legitimately
OPERATED (open) because of a hard fault... TYPICALLY
in the most used, abused & weathered switch in your car...
THE DRIVER'S DOOR SWITCH...

Try disconnecting the driver door... allow time for the BREAKER to chill out and see if the other windows might start working...

ELSE...
Get out your volt meter and test the switches on the drivers door switch for proper functionality...

That is a VERY POPULAR PART (means "troublesome")
2004 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX 3 8L V6 Power Window Switch RockAuto

More rockauto detail
More Information for STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS DWS775

but typically pretty easy to service

Also on eBay
2004 2008 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX DRIVER MASTER POWER WINDOW SWITCH 10438816...

You could also check AMAZON
Amazon com Dorman 901 104 Window Switch Automotive

Popular PARTS are a very GOOD thing when looking for
"mysterious" troubles...!!

Hope I am helping.

Finding fuse diagram


Mike, Ford F150 relay for electric windows, position 401 in fuse box, some forums say Relay in position R02 may be tied in with pwr win., maybe check fuse 22 position also, actually for all the time it takes probe all the fuses with test light or DVOM, as Ford may have PWR window delay or something like that tied into another circuit. You may have a broken wire/ ground ,etc in the harness that runs through the door and pillar.

My door locks do not work and the electric seats do not work but the interior lites come on and the trunk release works, Relay clicks


The first two, the seats and the locks, should be a fuse, but might be a relay.
That fuse may be under the hood, or inside the black plastic fuse and relay box under the hood.
Since the locks and seats take a considerable amount of current, a relay is the more common problem.

Power windows dont work


There is a circuit breaker for power windows .
Power Window System Components
The power window system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver Door Switch (DDS)


?€¢
Passenger Door Switch (PDS)


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
Rear door power window switches


?€¢
Power window motors in each of the doors


?€¢
PWR WDO Circuit Breaker


Power Window System Controls
The power window system will operate anytime the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The driver master control switches are integrated into the DDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the DDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the DDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist and during window motor operation the DDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation.
The DDS controls the passenger window by a serial message to the PDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the PDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the PDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist, and during window motor operation the PDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation. (Scan tool support is available for this system
Check this circuit breaker
RETAINED ACCSRY PRW BRKR 30 amp. located in the left instrument panel fuse box . if the breaker is good check power B+ at the drivers door switch . connector 1 terminal b yellow wire . Sometimes the wires inside the rubber boot coming from body to door break .

Which Relay/Fuse controls the power windows?


Did you check for battery voltage at the switch , with a volt meter before you replaced the main driver door switch ? Maybe you'll want to take this to pro ,instead of just replacing parts !

99 corolla passenger window wont roll up


Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Operate the windows from the master control switch. If none of the windows work, check the main fuse or breaker for the whole power window circuit. If only one of the windows is inoperative, go to Step 3.

  • 2 Check the main circuit relay using a test light. If voltage is coming out of the relay, there is an open or short at the wire feeding power to the other switches. If no voltage is coming out of the relay, use the test light to make sure voltage is reaching the relay. If voltage is reaching the relay, replace it. If there is no voltage reaching the relay, there is an open or short at the wire between the relay and the main fuse.
  • 3 Check the circuit fuse or breaker at the inoperative window. If the fuse or breaker is okay, go to the next step. If you can hear a humming sound as you press the switch but the window does not operate, either the motor is bad or its gearbox may have broken teeth. Go to Step 7.
  • 4 Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine. Using a multimeter, check the master control lockout switch for continuity. If there is no continuity, replace the lockout switch. With some vehicle models, problems at the lockout switch can cause both rear windows to fail.
  • 5 Try the switch at the inoperative window and check for continuity using a voltmeter. If there is no continuity, replace the switch.
  • 6 Check for voltage at the switch using a test light. If voltage is not reaching the switch, there is an open or short between the incoming wire and the fuse or breaker for that circuit power window.
  • 7 Take off the trim panel from the inoperative window. Check for voltage at the motor with a test light while pressing the switch. If there is no voltage, there is a short or open at the wire between the switch and the motor. If the circuit is equipped with a relay, test for voltage reaching and coming out the relay. Make sure the relay is working properly. If voltage is reaching the motor, go to the next step.
  • 8 Detach the window from the regulator and inspect the regulator mechanism by moving the window up and down by hand. Make sure nothing restrains the mechanism. Also, inspect the motor gearbox. Replace any parts as necessary.

    Rear vent windows stopped working.wont open.


    If only the rear windows are inoperative, or if the windows only operate from the master control switch, check the rear window lockout switch for continuity in the unlocked position. Replace it if it doesn't have continuity. If the switch test is OK, check for a short or open in the wiring between the affected switch and the window motor. If voltage is reaching the motor, disconnect the window from the regulator and motor move window in and out check for binding. If no binding change motor. If voltage is not reaching motor check the wiring in the circuit for continuity between the switch and motor. Check that the relay is grounded properly and receiving voltage from the switches. Also check that the relay sends voltage to the motor when the switch is turned on. If not replace the relay.
