97 grand prix power windows

My passenger side window will only go up or down a inch or so. I have been told it is the power windoe switch, but i think is the power window motor. Any help would be appreciated.

Since you are getting some movement you can assume you are getting power to the motor. Motors fail a lot more frequently than the switches.

does it act the same using either switch? if so, I would tend to look towards a motor. If the two switches act differently, I would look to a switch.

although this is not definitive since the power to the other than drivers door switches are controlled by the drivers door system, it would tend to help in the Dx.

just an fyi: had a 2000 GP. had switches go bad on that one. It looks like it may be a common problem.
