Expert:  Gary replied 26 days ago.

do you have a good multi meter on hand ?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
no voltmeter, do you think it could be the wiring harness in the door
Expert:  Gary replied 26 days ago.

it could be

it is either the power or ground b ad to the drivers switch or the communication wire possibly bad

if the big red/white wire shows 12 volts with the key ON and the bid black is a good ground then that new switch was not programmed yet with a programming scan tool or the communication wires are bad to it

was the new switch programmed with a programming scan tool to the vehicles VIN number ?

it will not work without the programming installed in the new switch
