That is a good ideal I did run a hot and ground from the battery to the motor on the regulator and the window goes up and down with no issues that is kinda why I was thinking it may be the switch just figured I would check the switch is 75 so figure I would ask.

Hello, I'm Danny.

Here is the information you requested. You will have to remove the door panel to gain access to the window regulator so here is a tutorial for door panel removal and installation and one for power window regulator replacement:

Hello,

There may be a break in the wire or wires that run through the rubber tube where all the wires for the door are. You can see it when you open the door. Plus the door covers come off pretty easy, you can pop that cover off and check the wiring directly at the window motor. It's also possible the motor stop working all together. There are usually 2 wires going to the window motor, they are 12 volts each depending on if the window is being commanded up or down.

It sounds like the master switch is bad, I know there's alot of wires coming out the switch, but there should be one wire with power going to one of the rear windows when the switch is pushed. Same with the other rear window, it's not too hard if a switch to diagnose.

Yes, it sends power to the rear switch then to the window motor, that's how you can control the rear windows from the drivers seat.

Can you hear it trying to go up? What about down, can you hear it? If no audible noises your gonna have to take the door panel off and check at the window motor for power and ground when tryin to operate window, the terminal voltage will switch one way for up one way for down, but check and make sure you have power and groung both ways. If you do and the window doesnt move you have a faulty window motor. This might be one that comes bought as one unit, motor and regulator together

Check to see if there is power to the motor. If there is, check the motor. If no power, check the switch for power.
