Having problems with your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am ?

All of my power windows have stopped working at the same time. what can I do to fix this?

Answers :

It sounds like you've either blown a fuse or a circuit breaker. I think the power windows for the 1997 Grand Am are on a 30 amp circuit breaker located next to the fuse array in the fuse box. Look for a breaker labeled WDO. To reset the circuit breaker you may need to push it to the off position before you can return it to the on position. I believe the fuse box is located behind the glove compartment but if you don't find it there you can consult your owner's manual.
Reset battery first, then take to your dealer if there is still a problem.

I think the switch (or relay?) is blown that controls the power windows and locks. The wipers started for no reason one day so we found the fuse and removed it - the wipers stopped midway and then only came on if set to high and you had to time when to turn them off so that they were in the down position. Not sure what else my friend did other than test fuses but as soon as wipers stopped, THE POWER WINDOWS AND POWER LOCKS STOPPED WORKING - SUNROOF AS WELL. He then checked each of the relay swi
