Hey guys. Fixed my rear passenger door lock today thanks to this forum (would lock everytime it was opened from the inside) and now I'm trying to fix my rear driver's side window.

Simply put, my problem is the window won't roll down. The other three work fine but this one won't click, whir, growl...nothing. Acts like no power is being sent to the window motor. Haven't checked the switches or done anything else as I'm not sure what all to check.

Would anyone be able to offer any insight on this topic? Any and all suggestions are, as always, much appreciated.

You need to make sure that power is going to the switch, and from there, to the regulator, and then to the motor.

Thanks for the reply. I'll search the forums and chase some wires tomorrow after work for more information on recommended DMM-probing points. Wish me luck...

hey, it's probably just a disconnected window switch (you prolly pulled it out when you had the door panel apart). I work in a glass shop, and this is one of the most common things that fail regulators. both of the switches have to be connected for the regulator to work ( drivers door and rear door). should be an easy fix. but saying that..................:eek:

good luck,
