Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Driver's side window won't go up or stay up!

Currently, the motor will open the window (take it down), but when I go to put it back up--the window doesn't budge! Sometimes it even slips down into the door panel somewhat--but luckily there has always been enough of it still sticking out that I can pull it back up with me fingers. I also have to wedge items into the door panel against the glass when the window is closed in order to keep it up. When I try to close the window, I can hear the motor running, but the glass just won't go up.

It has become disconnected from the glass. If it is a cable type like Toyotas they are expensive to replace. If it is similar to ford you can open the door poanel and reglue the glass to the scissor mechanism that opens and closes the window.

You can remove the door handles and power window switches and the screws in the door pad and push up on the pad and it will come out of the track and then you can see the motor and replace the part yourself. Hope this helps.

All power windows and sunroof will not budge suddenly on neither the drivers master switch or any of the door window switches. Power locks DO work though. I replaced all 10 and 15 amp fuses in fuse box,...


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

Check the master window control panel on the driver's door. There is probably a lockout switch. It may have a window outline on one end and the same outline with an "X" over it on the other. Press the outline without the "X" and all your windows should work again. As silly as that sounds, a lot people hit that switch without knowing it. Also, if that switch(lockout) is faulty, none of the windows will work. That happens A LOT!!

pull the door panels off and remove the plastic sound deadenning liner from the door. find the window motor and unplug the wire harness. check the voltage by ressing down as to open the window(you can do up too, same thing), and see if you get 12volts when you press the button. if so your motors are burned. if not you have power issues and need to check your fuses. start off with the fuses first.

1990 maxima Drivers side window, will power down but won't go back up


Check the cable that lifts the window. If the cable is frayed or twisted and stuck the window will not work.

If this is the case the window regulator assembly must be replaced. It contains the bracked and cables that operate the window. It cost about $100.

I replaced all four on my 1990 maxima.
