Thought I would ask the professionals first before I go to mechanic.  My 1999 Trans Am's clock, radio and window power went out. I purchased a motor for driver side some time ago. Is this a fuse problem?

Deborah, there are actually 2 paths you can take. Your symptoms sound exactly like many before you.  You can either replace the Body Control Module BCM unit (very specific procedure for matching your key to the new unit) or, if you have a trusted person that can re-solder the bad factory job.

There are a couple of good videos on You Tube that explain what's happening so you are empowered with information before you go looking for the fix. Been there done that.
