7 posts in this topic

I just recently bought a 97 grand prix se that was used as a drug busting car. The one problem I have is that the passenger windows don't go down(power windows), any suggestions. Drivers side work nice, Haven't done any multi metering. Any ideas on how to fix?

Welcome to HSO/FM JBD!

Ps AirJer what do ya know about 79 dodge power wagon?

Giggle, It should have been out out to pasture long ago! grin

I assume the grand am is a four door since you said the "passenger side windows". The first thing I would check is the master switch on the drivers door. A test light is ideal for this. Connect the test light to ground and check all the wires for power. Once you have noted all the wires that have power hold the passenger front window switch in the up position and recheck all the wires. Only one more wire should light up the test light. Do the samee thing for down. Again only one more wire should illuminate, If more than one wire lights up the master switch is bad and it is sending power on both wires to the window motor instead of supplying one power and one ground.

If that all checks out you will need to go to the passenger side switches and repeat the process. If that checks out than you'll have to pull the door panels and check to see if power and ground are making it to the window motor. Remember the switch will "switch" which wire is power and ground depending on if you want the window to go up or down.

If powers and grounds check out tap the motors while holding the switch in the down position if they magically start working you just solved the problem. 2 new window motors and your all set for Phoenix, If thats the car your talking. I'd just make sure the a/c works before you leave!!!!

4wanderingeyes, can you get a wiring diagram for this? JBD is my brother so if you could send it to me I'll get it to him. If you can thanks in advance!!

Now I don't feel so bad, you did the same thing I did on another thread a while back.... He said Grand Prix, and you are talking Grand Am. Either way the procedures to check are the same. But I've put quite a few more window motors in Grand Prixs than Grand Ams for some reason, although the last Grand Prix I did ended up being the switch AND the motor.

I put in a motor and it worked good, but it also had an intermittent bad switch, that cost me a comeback and I don't like those frown

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
