My window will not work. When I noticed it was not working a could not roll it up or down from the drivers side. Then tried the passengers side and it went down but not back up no power at all. All my other locks and windows work fine. A friend replaced switch and power motor still will not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi:
Which switch did you replace? Also, when you said switch replacement did you do the drivers side master switch?

Hi:
Wow. You replaced both switches and the motor and it still doesn't work? You have me stumped. If you are getting power to the motor (both ways) it should work. For the heck of it, try to run a ground strap from the motor to the door. Also, If you run 12 volts to the motor for a separate power supply like an extra battery, does the motor react?

Let me know. I love the challenge of an electrical problem.
