Steel Head,
When you pull out the switch on the drivers side door does the orange wire on the power window switch plug have power??
If not I would take a guess that you may have a broken wire in the rubber snake that runs from the body pillar to the door.
This is a very common problem on GM cars.
you have to either pull the rubber snake back from eack side and look for a crack in the wire insulation or slice it longways with a razor blade to gain acess to the harness. you will find a slight crack and corrosion in the wire and it must be cut and repaired.
the only problem is they do not give you much room to work.
Let us know!

I agree, that's where I'd be looking too.

I have check the wiring going through the boot from the door to the car, All wires are fine no cracks or broken wires.

I test the orange wire at the swtich, yes i do get power there. What does that mean? Any Ideas what else can be causing My power window not to work or my sunroof?

Never Mind i found the problem,

It was a loose connection at the PW Circuit Breaker.

Thanks for the replies though

As dumb as this sounds... A lot of times people don't realize that they hit the lock-out switch, and sometimes the switch is in-between "On" & "Off" killing all the windows, and sometimes the lock-out switch is just broke. You can take it apart and "jumper" the switch or spend $165 bucks for a master window switch assy, if you can find one.

Do you think the switch is the cheapest thing to replace when it comes to troubleshooting this? I have the same problem and it actually might be the switch. I'm just wondering if there's anything cheaper and more likely to be causing the issue.

When you say "I have the same problem" That means all your windows stopped working. at the same time? Right? I would think that the switch is the expensive part. Just start checking fuses, relays, connections etc. Maybe the glass is stuck in the rubber seals, as silly as that sounds. There is no "smoking gun". Its electrical or mechanical. If all windows quit at the same time, you can rule out mechanical. Sometimes unplugging relays and circuit breakers and plugging them right back in works. If you look at it as a challenge, and not a PITA, you will have a whole lot more fun. Don't guess....Know!
