Power Windows Stopped Working

When you say you by-passed the motor, do you mean the switch? Also, to get the window back up, you need to reverse the polarity to the motor. Basically, there are two wires running to the motor. Power to one of them puts the window down. Power to the other wire puts the window up. As far as a ground, the motor is grounded through the door.

FYI. I found a broken wire in the rubber boot in the door jam. Reconnected the wire and everything works like new.

it appears the motor is shot. Window is down. Does anyone know how to get motor out? Window back up until new motor can be ordered and recieved? Need to drive truck and wet weather on the way.

There are two wires to the motor. All the switch does is changes the polarity. Therefore, you have power in one wire when it goes down, and the other when it goes up. Check to see if that is happening.

Sound's like you could have broken window regulator you will have remove the door panel and see if it is broken.

First would be to ensure that the window has not came out of the track. This can be confirmed by looking down the seal of the door with a flash light. Try to roll the window up and see if its hitting anything. If its tracking is OK you would need to test the switch first. Since you say both switches will roll it down but no up, this pretty much confirms good switched. The motor / regulator would be the last thing to test and probably your culprit here.
