Last week I was driving my car to the shop and on the way there the passenger window wouldn't roll up. By the time I got there the driver window wouldn't roll up. I pulled the switch out and replaced it last night and no change. I also checked all the fuses and replaced the power window Curcuit Breaker. 14 20a.

What could it be?

take the motors out of the door. They are held in by a couple of easily accessed bolts. The motors will drop down and come out of the speaker hole. You'll have to clip the power wire.

Ok, now that you have the motor its easy! Just take it up to your battery and directly connect the terminals. If the motor spins freely then its probably "not shot". If it hangs anywhere or has trouble starting its "shot"

I tell ya what...I replaced my driver side motor and it was one of the best non-performance mods I ever did! Before the windows would barely go up and down but not its like BAM! (BAM is a technical term)

I'll try that tonight.

Thanks for the response
