I have a 1999 pontiac grand prix the window will not go up ? I have juice to the motor when i push the switch in the down position but nothing in the up. Do you think a switch or may be the motor?

I have a 99 grand prix, Its definitely the switch, I have fixed mine 4 times in 5 yrs (they are defective) I know because I have 2 grand prix and they both fail. Anyway, you can fix them if you know how, if you dont, see if you can borrow a friends grand prix switch to replace and try before you buy one (just a thought) and if you dont need your old switch, you can give it to Hope this helped, It sucks not being able to roll your window down because of the fear that it wont come back up. Especially in the winter/Rainy Season...Let us know if this helped.

99 grand prix gt window regulator?

Noises are deceptive at best.

Until you pull the door panel you really can't be sure what it is.

It could be a rusted rail or the window fell off the rail , or, or,o have one of them look and hunt problems.

Most window issues are easily fixed if you have the slightest mechanical apptitude, it won't be that hard.

I hope this helps you some

Thanks for letting ya

My grand prix 99 motor does not work, only the

Change the switch with another switch to see if the one you had was bad. If it the switch is good, then the motor is bad. You will have to pull all screws out of door panel, pry off panel, and access motor. You may need to drill the rivets to access motor.

I'm looking for the location of the resistor on the blower motor of a 99 pontiac grand prix

If it is the same as a 2002 Grand Prix the resistor is located on the firewall behind the blower motor up under the glove box. You need to remove the blower motor to get to it.
