Pontiac grand am power window not working?

Most of the nowadays latest cars have power windows instead of manual windows.
And this problem is very common.

First verify that the fuse or circuit breaker for the windows is OK. Most cars use the same power circuit for all of the windows, so if only one of them isn't working, it's a pretty safe bet that the fuses are OK.

Try this few possibilities and see if it helps or not.

Shut the car off and then restart and directly operate power windows and see if it works or try wiggling the key in the ignition and see if it works.In some cases this trick has helped.

Try Swapping the circuit breaker for power seats with circuit breaker for power windows and see if it helps.

If that is not helping and then,
It's possible one of the wires going into the door has broken. These wires flex every-time you open or close the door, and it's not at all uncommon for this to happen.

Try operating the switch with the door open. If no luck, try grabbing the wire harness that goes between the door and the car up near the hinges and wiggle it around while operating the switch.
Try using both switches. Check the wires inside the boots running from the doors to the body.

If you notice no sound or no movement in any of windows,
Then it could be a bad power window switch, but the main power wire does go through the door.. and if this wire is severed none of the windows will work.
It's possible the wire isn't completely broken.. maybe held on with one or two strands.. not carrying enough voltage.

Test the voltage to the switch and see if its working or not.If switch is checked out ok,then its power window motor issue.
You have to remove door panel then check for power at the motor is its got power than replace the motor.
