Driver's side window not working properly

The driver window won't respond, but the passenger window control still works on both panels. Before the driver window stopped working, it would fight us. It would act as though we were pushing shown and at the same time when pulling the tab in the up position. If we lottery go of the control, the window would roll back down as if we push the auto down mode. We would have to quickly stop it, then it would work properly, but the closer it was to the bottom, the more we had to fight with it. If it went all the way down, we had to fight through the up and down phase until it was high enough to stop and start. Do we need to replace motor or is there an additional problem that needs to be addressed? Maybe something with the panel?
Do you
have the same problem?

Before it stopped working and it was acting odd, would the window move smoothly even though it may not be doing what you wanted it to do? If so, it sounds like this is the switch issue and not the motor.

Some times these switches get wet or the contacts begin to wear and they act crazy like this. I would suggest checking for power at the motor when pressing the button up or down.

If pressing down, you should have 12 volts on the green and white wire at the motor. If up, you should have 12 volts on the green and red wire.

If you do not then the switch is the issue. If you do then the motor is the issue.

Let me know if you have questions.
