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.

I got a 2000 Pontiac trans am and every time I turn the car on the driver side window will roll down and it won't roll back up. But the passenger side window works fine. And when the stereo works the...


How about when the radio is on & the key is off or
in your hand,if you open either front door does the radio go off
& do you lose the delayed window feature assuming you have that
If so you problem is a delayed accy relay
Next would be the front door switches
I will give you credit for what you tried
but fail to see why you would switch motor
from door to door,they work powered directly or they don't
I would think your battery would have gone dead by now
if the relay failed to time out or go to sleep

Windows won't go up or down and interior lights stay on


You have two separate (and unrelated) electrical issues.
(1) windows - probably the fuse is blown - replace. If it keeps blowing fuses, then you have a
short somewhere in the wiring to the window operator motors or the switch to raise/lower
the windows (any soda/latte been spilled on one of the switches lately?, or perhaps a window
left open overnight in a rainstorm?).

(2) interior light staying on - almost always a stuck/corroded/worn door switch - play with all
four & you'll find which one has gone marginal (97% of the time its drivers door switch,
since the driver's door gets more usage than all the other doors put together).

Replaced passenger side door glass. When you use


What you need to do to initialize the window is remove the window motor from the regulator. Plug it into the car by itself, then press up on the switch until it turns four times. Then hold the switch down for four turns, then put motor back into the regulator, and assemble back into the door. to make sure the motor spins correctly four times I make a tooth on the gear with a marker.

Master window switch


Have you checked the switch to see if 12 volts is coming out of the switch, hold it in the up or down position and test the pins, 2 will light, the 12 volts to the switch and the one out to the motor, if the out to motor is ok then either the new motor is no good or you have a bad door ground.

Most likely your window motor has failed due to dirt inside from normal wear and tear during use, or overloading has burned it out. A second possibility is that you need to reset the calibration on the motor that tells it when to stop at the top and bottom (also necessary after replacing a worn or burned out motor). Great service-manual-quality info can be found here (link is to the reset procedure). Door panel removal is here. Window motor service info is here and here.
