Both the AC and electric windows are inoperable on my 2004 Grand Am. What could be causing this? Burnt fuse?

That is where I would start. Did both stop working at the same time?

Yes, both stopped working at the same time. I checked all the fuses and they are good. It is my understanding this could be tied into the ignition system. Anymore thoughts?

They could be tied into the ignition, but I would think that other things would have stopped too.

Have you checked for fuses inder the hood in the power distribution box?

When they don't work, remove the door panel and check for power to the switch and the motor. Let me know what you find.

You will need to remove the door panel to get a better view of exactly what has happened, the regulator may need replaced.

I need to change the sash clip on my driver side window and was just wondering how easy it would be to do myself. Is it pretty hard and or complicated or pretty quick and easy?

Once you get the door panel off to gain access it isnt that hard to do, trick is not to hurt the window when removing theold one, they are glued to the window. If you are patient and slowly work a razor blade between the two you can ge tit off there, then use some silicone and glue new one in place and roll window up for a day to let it dry in place

I am trying to set my drivers side front window onto the track of the electric window system but can not figure it out. What is the trick to know about it.

Hello
Thanks for the donation.

Remove your door panel and locate the track/feet component the window came out of. Then, using urethane glue/sealant for auto glass, reaffix the window into the track/feet after thoroughly cleaning all parts of old adhesive. Be sure to carefully operate the window to check position before the adhesive sets. After installation is complete, leave the window closed and don't operate it for several days until sealant has set thoroughly. If you are not fairly confident of your ability to position the glass correctly in the track/feet, you may want to consider taking it to a professional glass repair shop.

Hope this helps.

About a month ago, I started my car, and none of the lights turned on, radio did not turn on and windows did not go up or down. The headlights do turn on manually, but nor the spedometor nor the gas gage works. So I messed around with it a little, if I turn on the car and then turn the key slightly everything turns on and windows work. But today it's just not working. On the other hand, the car is running fine. I would like to know if its just an electrical short? Is it fixed easily?

THANKS SO MUCH

The problem is fixed now, but I have never felt comfortable with the price I paid. My driver side power window "worked, " but the left side of my window would collapse as the window came down. My brother took the door off to find that the left sash was broken. I think that's what the part is called, at least by the parts store, to describe the plastic pieces that keep the window in place. My brother fixed it, and it worked another 6 months before breaking again. I took it to a repair shop and told them this whole story. They ended up replacing the moter, regulator, and clips, which cost me about $200. I asked them to explain to me, before and after, why all this was needed; and their answers were smooth and confident but never satisfying to me. What do you think? Did I get ripped off? Any information would be very helpful. Thank you.

No, I don't thing so. Your repair didn't hold. That means there were other issues in there that were never found or addressed. That would explain the entire regulator being replaced. As for the motor, many "quality" regulators are only sold as a complete unit with a motor included so that may have been automatic or maybe they saw something weak in the motor. Remember, they don't repair things on the idea "I think it will work", they have to be thorough enough to know it's not coming back on them.

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

The driver side window has stopped working all of a sudden. No sign of previous binding and the operation has been very smooth.

I opened the window just fine and now it wont close

All other windows work so I know its isolated to the driver window. When holding the switch either in up or down positiion I hear a click after a few seconds indicating to me that the motor breaker is tripping and after a few seconds it does reset.

I want to know if I should be looking at the regulator for the window or the motor itself. Or could it just be stuck and if so, what is the best method to figure that out

Thanks

Window motors can go either way, all of a sudden stop or slowly give you signs it's going bad. Either way the regulator going to have to come out. Hope the info helps
