Pop the switch Panel out. Then pop the wire block off the switch you will see holes with metal in it. Take 2 paper clips and connect the brown and black wire. Then the dark blue and yellow wire. Window will go up

Thanks for using FixYa and welcome to the site. Since the window is not coming back up, it is either off track or the track bar is broke. In order to find out, you will need to take off the door panel. There should be a few screws on the side of the panel that needs to come out. There may be foam or plastic in the door that also needs to come out. You have a little bar that the window sits on. It raises the window. Make sure the bar is there and make sure the window is sitting on the bar. If the bar is broke, it will need replaced. If not, just sit the window on the bar and it should go back up. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for choosing FixYa.

    You have to disconnect the window from the regulator or clip. In order to hold it up, you will need to tape the window up.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Montana. The Drivers Information Center does not work. I have checked with both of my Local Pontiac Dealers. They only sell a New Unit. Where can I get a Remanufactured DIC. Gary

Under the driver's side carpet under the plastic trim piece there are a bunch of wires going all over .
Usually the orange wires are power to alot of things including the control unit for the PCM clean all the risty wires and resolder them usually fixes alot of other preoblems as well like not power windows from driver's side power locks not working and so on .....

By the way this is a moisture trap on these vans make sure they get taped properly after the fix

That sounds like the switch is failing to me. Many times these switches get wet and or dirty which causes them to fail to make a proper contact. I have sprayed many of these switches with electrical contact cleaner and seen them work like new. I would try that first before replacing the switch.

Drivers power window will not work, went down ok but will not go up. All other windows work fine.

But if you press up and it makes a grinding noise or so the the window jumped track

Power windows won't go down

The Grand am has the slowest moving windows. I also have a 01 GT. My windows move very slowly, the back drivers side went out at 35,950 miles but luckily, the dealer fixed it. I was lucky the warranty had almost expired. It may need a motor and even when that is replaced it will still go up and down at a snail's pace. Good Luck! Is it any wonder they discontinued the Grand Am models and replaced them with the new G6. I will never buy another Pontiac. Wait until your security lights starts to pop on and eventually your car will not start, almost everyone I know with this car has had that problem at some point.
